    Just bought it three days ago.. ice maker would not work, temps were good, so I took the back panel off and the sensor was not connected.. the tabs were turned down, so the clip could not fit. So I tuned then straight, and the female clipped right in.. so I thought that would solve the problem.. but still not ice... water flows through the tubes.. I disconnected them to the sensor and turned on the water supply, and lots of water.. reconnected and the water is not getting to the ice maker... brand spanking new... what's up? Phil

    Sub-Zero Model 680F side by side cabinet depth with thru door icemaker and water. Dispenses water, but does not make ice. Have cleaned ice container, etc. bin is correctly seated, still no ice. Icemaker and Unit turned off and on, still no ice.



    Does this unit require a filter on the water line that may be clogged, and need replacement? Can this be replaced by owner? Refrigerator was installed in Oct 2000.

    same problem...where's the solution???

  • Anonymous Nov 21, 2008

    I have the same problem with ice maker. It worked before. Just recently, it stopped making ice. I turn on and then off the Ice switch, but no result.



    There were so many problems over the months and years since I got it, Ice Maker, Condenser, Cooling system, etc... Is anyone aware any defects on this modal? I thought the problems were just this s680 unit I got. Sure it not as reliable as any other lowend brand freg you can get from Sears.

    Ice maker stopped working after 3.5 years of ok service. I changed the water filter in the front toe kik area. I looked at teh discharge teeth they were frozen in the ice but when I removed the ice they cycled through to the 2 O-clock position i looked this morning they were stuck in the ice again.

    same problem ice maker has ice in it just wont eject



  • Ray Shirley Mar 15, 2009

    I had the same problemback in September 2007, so I bought a replacement ice maker on ebay. hthat worked for 13 months, then the replacement died. From what people tell me, it sounds like the heating element quit working. The heating element in the icemaker melts the ice just enough for the arm to break it out of the tray> I poured a little hot water on the ice to test this theory, and that made the ide cycle once more.
    THis is the 2nd unit I've gotten. I haven;t replaced it a third time yet. Does anyone know if this is really the problem, or is there something else to try?

Is it OK for ice thickener sensor touch water on ice maker


Yes, it has to touch the water. As the ice builds up the thickness sensor moves up and turns of the refrigeration and turns the heater on.

    GE Profile Model PSS26LGSC Ice maker not working


    Did the ice buildup appear to resemble the water overfilling the top of the ice maker? The only thing that I believe that may work is removing the ice maker, clean the excess ice buildup.dry and reinstall the ice maker and see it works. If the ice is above the normal level the ice can cause the motor that pushes the ice out of its slots to strain more than the gears or motor can handle stripping the gear or damaging the motor beyond repair, When harvest takes place the first thing that happens is a heater below the ice maker warms the cubes a little just enough to allow them to slide out of their slots and fall into the ice bin. The ice make for your model does not have replaceable parts and if bad or damaged it is less expensive and time consuming to by a new ice maker. If the water fills above the top of the ice maker it is usually the fault of the water control valve not closing all the way once it fills the ice maker after each harvest. Did water refill the ice maker when you cleaned it? Did the water overfill after you cleaned out the ice maker? What I am asking is water over filling ice maker again after you cleaned out the excess ice? If the water continues to flow from the WR57X10032 Water Inlet Valve
