GE Fridge water dispenser working but not the ice

Yes you most likely have a defective dual water control valve. Look around the inside of the refrigerator for a model number.

  • Top Freezer
  • Bottom Freezer
    Once you find the model number I will be able to tell you what part number the dual dual water control valve is or if your ice maker assist you in testing ice maker. If ice Maker is empty try filling with tap water to top edges of ice maker, allow water to freeze and if the ice drops into the ice bin but does not refill with water automatically I would say that the dual water control valve will need replaced. If your ice maker has old shrinking ice from a few days ago it will point to an ice maker problem.

    I have a refrigerator with water/ice in the door. I am having ice build up in the freezer section where the ice comes down. Why is this happening? What can I do to fix it?

    Replacimg the dual water control valve that fits your model number is most likely the choice you will have here. On that valve has a side for the water dispenser and a side for the ice maker alone. Should the ice maker side of the dual water valve not close all the way it becomes as a leaking faucet that allows just enough water to leak into ice maker and the create a bigger mess onece the fill tube for the ice maker freezes just enough to go every place but the ice maker. Now please do not mistake a defrost condesate drain blockage with this problem Click Here for that later once we clear this problem up. Now I need to assume your Maytag is a model MSD2756GES then I would make a note of your true model number and click or call whoever you like but having your model number is most important Click here and enter that model number in their search feature=> HERE once you enter the model number it will take you to a page that shows different sections of your model not the example I gave. On left side of screen scroll down to icemaker and the part 10 in photo is the dual water control valve. Click 20 on the center bottom of page and you get=> 61005626 The valve goes on back of fridge and near floor. I will be here to answer any questions you may have, Thank You, Sea Breeze

    The icemaker is extremely slow in making ice. maybe 12 cubes a day. The water comes out very slow from the water dispenser. Any solutions?

    yes, the solution is : replace the water filter. if that doesn't solve the problem then the water inlet valve needs to be replaced.

    I have a GE profile TFX26PPdaWW refrigertor which has stopped making ice. The bar is down, so the icemaker is on. Every once in a while the interior arm will turn to force ice out, but nothing comes...

    The place to start is at the fill tube going into icemaker...look into that and make sure its not frozen up with an ice plug. if it is, the inlet valve is bad..defrost the tube and this will give you temp service while looking for new valve..

    if no ice plug , then the fill valve is bad or your icemaker. if you have water and ice..its a dual valve..One side does water and the other does ice..the ice side could be bad, but you have to replace the whole assembly...I would take a ohm meter and ohm out the coil,or run a cheater cord to it and see if it opens.(this means run 110 volts directly to coil) if you get water inside to icemaker, more than likely the icemaker module is bad, but ,I would replace complete icemaker assembly

    Our icemaker had a red blinking light and wasn't working. We took out the bin and let it defrost - cleaned it out (turned it off). Then after it was clean put it back in the freezer - we switched it to...

    The bimetal thermostat embedded inside your ice maker is what tells the water control valve to open on rear of refrigerator near floor where the water supply enters the refrigerator. That water valve has two sides. One for the water dispenser and other for ice maker. I will try to make this simple and in my words because Whirlpool now owns Maytag and its related brand names. They do not allow me to provide the service manual any longer so I need to place my on work here. Even with what I believe is the problem you may have a technician or someone that is comfortable working with electricity test the dual water control valve on back and near floor.
    Test for continuity and resistance on both sides with power disconnected from dual water control valve. Both sides should show very close to the same amount of resistance. Use care testing water control valve because of the risk of shock especially if wet. Click Here=>

    Number 13 in that photo is the Ice Makers thermostat Part Number=> Pin Style Icemaker Thermostat 627985
    The dual Water Control valve is Part Number=> 61005626 Dual Water Control Valve
    Another way of testing ice maker is to fill with tap water and turn on. If ice freezes and drops then the dual water control valve needs to be replaced. If not working then you have two options and that is a complete Ice Maker Assembly Part Number=> D7824706Q or replace parts.

    Ice maker is not working and soft ice is forming around the area where the opening of the ice dispenser

    Most of the time where they are making ice at the fill tube point the icemaker water valve in the back of the unit is leaking / dripping water past the valve / diaphram seat and it will have to be replaced. You can prove this by turning off the icemaker and then pulling the tube off the back of the unit and placing it into a bucket over night. If your sure the icemaker is off and there is water in the bucket the next morning the water valve is bad.

    Now as for that ice in the icemaker fill tube... you can use a hand held hair dryer to defrost it once you change the water valve. I just changed my own water valve on a maytag less than 2 weeks ago that was doing the same thing. (Ice in fill hole and tube) It is working like a champ now.

    After 2yrs of not using the icemaker, moved

    Good day,
    Pour water from small paper cup until it near fills the well of the ice maker. With the lever down, close freezer door and wait 2 to 3 hours. If it dumps then the ice maker should be good, if not, replace ice maker.
    If dumps O.K. then the dual water valve is bad, and needs replaced.
    You should check the fill tube that runs from the back of the machine to see if it is blocked with ice. (requires removing ice maker) but even so, if it is iced, you'll need to clear, but the water valve in the back rear of the machine is leaking and still needs replaced.

    Leaking water in icemaker. water from icemaker leaks into freezer and freezes on freezer wall

    If you are sure that it's coming from the ice maker I believe that you possibly have a leaking water control valve on the side for the ice maker on the rear of refrigerator near floor there is a dual water valve control. Many times when this happens the water will freeze in the fill tube that fills the ice maker in the rear of freezer. You can defrost the frozen water in the fill tube with a hair dryer but that will not stop the problem from coming back. When that happens water tends to at times go everywhere but the ice maker. You can test the water control valve several ways. By unplugging the side to the ice maker and if water continues to flow slowly to the ice maker then the dual water control valve will need replaced, Sea Breeze
