    the ice maker works fine. The door dispenser handle is sticking open so that if the water is selected it pours water out the door spout. If the ice is selected it pours ice out the door

Hi,

Take the ice bucket out and look at the metal bar that runs along the bottom. This bar is the part that changes the unit from crushed to cubed. When' it is lifted up, it will produce cubed ice. Make sure that the bar goes into the plastic stirrup looking device in the back panel when you push the ice bucket back into place. If it slides underneath the stirrup, it will not pull the lever up. If everything checks good and it still won't make cubed ice, you'll need to order and replace the solenoid behind the back wall that pulled the stirrup up.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

GE TFX24E side by side refrigerator, ice maker won't fill with water.


Hi, I have a GE TFX24E refrigerator. The ice maker is not filling with water. I replaced teh water valve with no joy. If I pour a cup of water into the dispenser the ice maker will freeze and harvest the ice. Any ideas? Is there a replaceable water fill sensor?

Ice maker doesn't work


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps the cubes , but doesn't fill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( the piece that the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Also check to be sure that the fill tube from the back of the freezer to the ice maker , isn't blocked with ice , as this is caused by a seeping bad water valve . If the ice maker doesn't dump the cubes , after freezing , then replace the ice maker . Also check to make sure the coils under the front of the refrig , are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc.

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .

Replace selenoid and water is still not going to ice maker


Did you pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker and did it dump ? If you did pour water into the icemaker , and it did not dump the cubes , then the icemaker is bad . If it did dump , so you replaced the water valve , then the fill tube directly at the icemaker is frozen with ice . It will need to be removed ( fill tube at icemaker ) and the ice cleared out by hot water . On some models , behind the refrig , 2 screws hold the fill tube in place . Remove the tube , and clear the ice . When reinstalling , have someone guide it from inside the freezer , to where it mounts on the icemaker fill cup .

No ice being made


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes but does not fill with water , replace the water valve ( the part that the line from the wall connects to on the fridge ) . If the icemaker does not dump the cubes , replace the icemaker . Be sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , etc... as this will not let the freezer get cold enough for the icemaker to dump .

Water dispenser gets stuck


It could be the switch that activates the lever. This happens when you have soda in the glass and then fill your cup with ice. It splashes up to the switch then it becomes sticky.
