Question about GE Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a HotPoint Model Hss251fmdcc Serial # 264192 and the icemaker is frosting up on outside and on shelving units. Ice maker seems to toss cubes our pieces out. It is not working properly and has been continually frosting up the interior area nearer the top and ice cube collection area. Sometimes it tosses out a cube.

SOURCE: ice dispenser in door clogged up or frozen

I would contact Hotpoint direct for this one. It sounds like a design fault to me.

What I think may be going on is that the cubes are melting too much, then refreezing lower down.

Set your freezer to -18, and the fridge to +2 and see if that changes things any.

Check seals in that area. Where is the moisture coming from to generate the frosting? - Is the location high in humidity?

SOURCE: icemaker only dispenses crushed ice, not cubes

yea! I have been without cubes for 2 years. I slid out the tray, found the lever in the back where the rod went in, pulled it down, reinserted the ice tray, and IT WORKED! At first I thought I broke the lever, because I had to hold it down with a knife while I was inserting the tray, but it just must have been stuck. I am soooo happy!

SOURCE: ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES

Unfortunately, this is one of the inherent problems with a self defrosting freezer units. Some frost free models/brands are less smelly than others. Grabbing the cubes as soon as they drop so they don't sit in that nasty freezer air and placing them in a zip lock would help a lot but probably not completely. Be sure and clean the inside of the freezer often so there is less of the smell left in the plastic that surrounds the ice cubes as well as the foods. Don't eat freezer burned vanilla ice cream, for sure! Hope this helps.

SOURCE: icemaker makes too few cubes

Find the water source for the ice maker(most are under the kitchen sink and are tapped off of the cold water line to the faucets) You need to either shut off the tap by turning it clockwise until it is closed. Then you need to disconnect the vinyl tubing from the valve. get a bucket and place it where it will catch the water from the tap. Gradually open the tap by turning it counterclockwise until water starts to come out of the valve. If you have a large enough bucket open the valve all of the way. If the stream of water does not change then the valve is bad and needs replacing. If the stream is nice and strong then the valve is ok. Turn the valve clockwise to close it, reattach the vinyl tubing and open the vale all of the way. This should improve the quanity of ice cubes. If not then there is a cripmp in the vinyl line between the tap and the solinoid valve on the back of the refrigerator.

SOURCE: ice maker over fills the ice cube tray over

most likely the i/m needs replaced. what happens is the coating inside the mold is peeling off and causing the cubes to stick and then melt the cubes instead of releasing them. when this happens it will cause the unit to overfill the next cycle and leak into the bucket.

Whirlpool model # ed5vhexvq1 side by side ...ice maker will not dispense ice..water works but it sounds as if there is no power going to icemaker from dispenser


Does the icemaker bucket has ice cubes. If yes then your problem is in the dispensor. If no ice cubes on the icemaker bucket then your problem is with the ice maker unit.

Let say Ice cubes on the ice maker bucket and dispensor makes noise when pressing for ice cubes. Then either your ice dispensor flapper is frozen or may be ice cubes in bucket may have defrost and frozen again sticking together.

My icemaker overflows and does not produce cubes but a solid block of ice over the unit and down into the cube reception tray and over the bottom of the freezer unit. Have removed all the ice and restarted...


Hi
you need to adjust the water level, carefully remove the front cover of the ice maker itself.
On the front of the ice maker, there is a small nylon screw that controls the water intake amount.
If the screw is turned to the Right, it will Decrease the amount of water entering the ice maker.
If the screw is turned to the Left, it will Increase the amount of water entering the ice maker.
The screw should only be turned 1/4 of a turn at a time; therefore, more than one adjustment may be required.
The maximum adjustment is one full turn in either direction. Additional rotation could damage the ice maker..
OR
Dirty icemaker water valve or broken valve can cause icemaker to overflow.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Icemaker seems to partially melt ice while it is being stored


The number one cause of this is the door is not sealing correctly. Check that the door closes and seals as it should.

ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES


Hello margrek
Welcome,

YOU SAID, YOU HAVE KENMORE ELITE BOTTOM FREEZER WITH ICE MAKER THE ICE CUBES SMELL HORRIBLE ALWAYS, I EVEN TOSS THEM OUT EVERY FEW DAYS, STILL SAME PROBLEM


Ice has bad odor and taste.

1• Ice has picked up odor or
flavor from strong food stored
in refrigerator or freezer.
2• Water running to ice maker
has poor taste or odor.
3• Ice not used frequently enough.
4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
produce fresh supply.
5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying
company.
7• Discard stale ice.

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.

Hotpoint HSS25GFP icemaker stopped working


are u sure that model # Is right.. DOnt come up in any of my model data bases Seems like u might of got a bad icemaker.. if the water is coming into the icemaker from the water valve.. icemaker has to have power, to do that... all funtions after that would be controled by the iceaker .. The only other thing i can think of is your refrigerator has to be a certain temp to activate icemaker somewhere around 0 give or take some to be safe
