Question about Refrigerators
I feel badly that no one has covered this for you yet. I'll just go after it with logic because it makes me keep thinking of that scene in the movie "9 to 5" when the printer won't stop and Jane Fonda's fraking out in her library lady glasses. :)
It's got to be mechanical or electrical or both. The arm is supposed to recognize contact with the ice, whether through the arm touching the ice and being moved and told to stop, or the ice touching it sends a temperature that can only be sensed by contact with the ice.
On the other end, inside the module where the arm originates, the arm has to trip a switch that disengages the command to make ice, or a sensor there has to react to the temperature received through the arm by contact with the ice and throw a switch to command no ice be made.
Common sense says the most likely problem is the module, and that a faukty run of manufacturing happened at a GM USA plant or an out sourced plant is shipping junk that GE's packaging because you've been through several.
I think you need to have GE replace however many it takes to get a good one and tell them to send someone smarter than a rock to China to get them on track.

The arm is called auger and its controlled by the motor.If the motor is got malfunctioned then it will run the auger non stop and this will cause the ice to dispense again n again.But the other possibility is the water fill valve and solenoid.If the valve is got malfunctioned then it will not stop filling and this will cause the same problem.
The valve in the freezer section.The ice-maker bin has to be removed to check the valve.Check the valve with meter and even the auger motor with meter.
