Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

My GE Profile Artica which uses a Model CAN17 Ice Maker has quit making ice. My brother in law who's a auto mechanic (which of course doesn't qualify him to fix it) took it out and opened it up moved some stuff and it started working again. However the happiness was short lived as 2 weeks after it restarted working again, it suddenly quit. Anyone know if these are serviceable? If not, anyone know a good online source for replacement? Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Ice Maker

Charles, these models have a habit of the inlet tube freezing over. Make sure the black tube feeding the trough is clear. You may want to disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through it. I use hot water in a baster to clear them all the time. Another thing is to check the optics. When opening the freezer door the red optic light on the right should flash 2x with a pause repeatedly. When you close the left hand emitter flapper the light should stay on. If it does this your optics are good. Because of these optics the new ice-maker has to be jumped started into a cycle. Once started you can monitor the fill. back.

SOURCE: ge profile artica not cooling

  • Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it.

  • Next, see if the compressor motor is running

    The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.

    If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

    • The compressor

    • The Thermostat

    • The overload, relay, or capacitor

    • The defrost timer

    • The condenser fan motor

    Ice falls to bottom of frig when drawer is opened

    If when your ice bin is pulled out it drags ice cubes from top of bin as I understand I would think that the sensor that tells the ice maker is not responding correctly. As I remember your model a PSS26MSRSS Profile/Artica has electronic Ice Makers that I hate and I think most people will agree that anything on a refrigerator electronic is a big mistake. All refrigerators have their problems but the electronic controlled models have so many complaints! Now I also noticed you did not confirm your model number so I need to ask is your model the PSS26MSRSS Profile? This is a lot of writing if I happen to be quoting a different model than yours, Thanks Sea Breeze

    Ice maker quit making ice

    I noticed your model number calls for a 220 volt and 50 cycle service. Are you in the UK or an area that uses this voltage? Anyway fill ice maker with tap water and let freeze. If the ice dumps after freezing that wil be the water control valve part number Click Here=> D7827204 and id it is the thermostat inside the ice maker the part number Click Here=> D7846305 neither page has photo. Here is you refrigerators Service Manual=> SXD524VW go to page 66 and the manual has very detailed test procedures for the ice maker. You can also go through my site=> GE Artica Profile Technical Information and click on Repair Banner at top of page. The just enter the part numbers in his search feature. If need you may contact me here on Fixya or my Forum=> Appliance 911 My contact information is located above the Fixya Ad on my blog here=> Sea Breeze Appliance Parts and Technical Services,
    Thanks, Sea Breeze

    GE profile side-by-side water dispenser works, no ice though

    Ice maker bad or the ice maker water valve mounted on the same bracket as the dispenser is bad. These frigs are prone to bad ice makers after a few years.
