Question about Refrigerators

3 Answers

Good evening, iI HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE G.E. REPLACEMENT ICE MAKER . THE NEWER STYLE I/M 6. IS ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THIS THING SHUTTING OFF? THIS ONE DOESN'T HAVE THE GOOD OLD WAND THAT CYCLES UP AND DOWN, IT HAS THE ARM THAT MOVES IN AND OUT HORIZONTALLY. IT SEEMS LIKE INSTEAD OF STOPPING IT IS PUSHING THE ICE OUT OF THE WAY AND CONTINUES TO MAKE ICE. I'VE TRIED THREE ICE MAKERS AND THEY'RE ALL DOING THE SAME THING. I APPRECIATE SOME INPUT, THANKS , FRED.

Hi There,

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.

Best Regards,

The Thinker

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.

KUIC15PLTS ice maker keeps making Ice even though it is FULL


The high level sensor can get iced up and stop working. using a hare dryer carefully heat the area that the lensing arm goes into or snap off the front cover of the ice maker and blow warm air in there. raise and loser the arm at the same time. a couple of minutes should do it.

Neff K3990 American style fridge ice maker is not producing ice


The ice maker unit give the command to the water valve to relese water for a short time.
you cna check with volt meter on the water volve that got the pip go to the ice maker unit if it getting 120V for short time when the fingers of the ice maker making full round.
if you get 120v the problem is the valve (the ice maker and the water have difrent water path so its difrent valve used) if you dont get 120v or the fingers of the ice maker not turning then its your ice maker unit need to be replace.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

You may can take the plastic end cover off and find the mechanical switch which is supposed to be pushed when you raise the arm and cut it off. Being that old a slight adjustment (bending) may fix your problem.

Ice maker issue


Your icemaker could be over filling. Your fill tube into the mold could be misaligned. Check both of these issues.
