Hello,

With your ice maker not working properly, you might be wondering the reason behind the malfunctioning of your ice maker. Several factors could be involved in case your ice maker is not making any ice at all. It might be caused due to a defect in the water supply line. It could be possible that the water valve isn't getting any water. Check the water line at the back of the freezer for any blockage. Look for the water shut-off valve placed behind the refrigerator or under the sink and turn it off.

Next step would be to unscrew the copper line located at the back of the refrigerator. Now place the copper line in a bucket and turn on the valve to check if pressurized water comes out. The problem could also be linked to a defective tap valve. You could have it replaced. Since, freezer temperature can also be responsible for ice maker malfunctioning, make sure the freezer is not too warm.

Also, sometimes, even though ice is formed perfectly fine in your ice maker, it does not eject out the trays. To solve this problem, you need to check the ejector gear and motor for any fault, and replace them if necessary. Also test the thermostat and ice hold heater in your refrigerator as the problem could be because of these parts malfunctioning.

Take care.

I have a GE Adora, side by side, the ice gets clogged in the blades of the crusher and prevents ice from dispensing.


It does sound as your water valve letting water to drip and it will fill and freeze. To check watch the ice cubes. Are they as cubes or all in one .

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

My GE Adora side by side will only dispense crushed ice...the buttons seem to be working, as in the light comes on each button when pushed. But only crushed ice!


Turn off icemaker. Remove ice bin, empty it, rinse with warm water and leave to dry overnight.
If this did not help - check solenoid in the freezer behind the ice bin, make sure it's not stuck and has continuity. If all checked out ok, but still no cubed ice - control board or interface board may need replacement, and you'll need a professional to diagnose that.

Good luck,

First you need to turn the freezer temp control back on(That just turned the whole refrigerator off)
The water dispenser may have stopped due to line freezing inside the refrigerator.
The ticking could have been the the element for the defrost cycle or the starter on the compressor.
So,turn it back on,set the temp to a normal setting and if the ticking is still there,wait 30 minutes to see if it stops,If no ticking is there when you restart it,wait 24 hour and check the temp inside as well as the water and ice dispenser,If all work,It is a defrost issue.If so you will either need a defrost timer,defrost element,or defrost thermostat.
If the ticking is still there,You will need to replace the start/run capacitor.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.
