Resolving the frost in shoot problem .
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes any power , going to the door . If no plug there , remove the bottom kick plate , by removing the screw on each side in the front , and disconnect the receptical from the wires comming from the bottom of the freezer door .
Remove the dispensor control board , by prying , or pulling , from the bottom of the board . Disconnect the 3 plugs to the board . You should now see the white dispensor cover , being held on by 4 screws . Remove these screws , and slide the cover out .
In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger , with the door flap arc , inserted into the plunger . Usually rust inhibits the movement of the plunger , keeping the door flap from closing completely .
Remove the 3 screws holding the plunger and solenoid ( part number WR62X10055 ) and replace . Cleaning will not help , due to rust will return .

SOURCE: Ice dispenser

Hi Wilday1, Sounds like you have a possible defrost malfunction. In this case the Ice maker motor may have become iced and cannot turn the auger. Tell me if you have frost buildup at the back of the frezer and ice crystals on the auger drive. If you do , then you need to remove the Ice makers motor and allow it to thaw and defrost itself. be sure it is completely dry before putting it back in. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Ice Dispenser does not work.

agree, but add most common problem is tray not installed(inserted ) correctly not seated Above solution is good cause most common reason is ice buildup preventing proper seating So after cleaning make certain it goes all the way in and it should sort of SNAP or click into place AND SHOULD BE LOCKED IN If is pulls right out, then u are n ot getting it in properly You should have to press a button or lever to remove it also check that metal wire arm is DOWN to make ice lastly the corkscrew thing must turn to dispense ice, you should hear it turn and stir the ice If it makes noise(hum and ice noise) then the chute thru the door is just clogged good luck

SOURCE: ice dispenser not dispensing ice or water

Check the water filter - it should be at the bottom of the fridge - turn it 1/2 turn to the left. After several months of use (less if you use it a lot) the filter can clog.

Ge side by side refrigerator model tfx20jrx ice wont dispense


If the auger will move freely with ice out of the pan then the auger motor may be defective. Sometimes the connection in the door switch is defective. When the door is closed the switch turns the circuit on to the auger and control panel. Because the auger uses more amps that the water dispenser the door switch may be the problem or auger motor is just worn out.

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice


You may not need to replace the solenoid.  If you hear the hum, and not a loud click and don't see then rod move, it may be frozen with ice.  Test it manually with your hand, it should be free  to move up and down.  If not, then it is frozen with ice.  Remove the ice dispenser and let it thaw and dry out.  You should then be able to move to rod and it will work fine, at least until it freezes again.  Anyone know how to prevent it from freezing up? Its a continual problem for me
