Hello gholwell,

Here are some tips for no ice:
1: Frozen Fill Tube
These units have the fill tube in the freezer ceiling that can keep freezing up. The cure is to replace the existing fill tube with a new kit, consisting of a modified fill tube and a fill tube heater. You can buy it here. This, of course, assumes the icemaker and level sensing circuitry are attempting to function normally. You can test the icemaker by manually initiating a harvest cycle. Do this by pulling the front cover off the icemaker and jumpering out test points T and H with an insulated wire. You can find more info HERE.

2: Bad Optics Circuit Boards
If the red status LED is not lit on your ice level sensor receiver, then you may have bad optics circuits. Close the freezer door and wait five minutes, then open it back up. If still no status light, then you need to replace the optics boards, emitter and receiver. You can buy them here.

As for the water problem, this is usually caused by one of the following:
- Inadequate water pressure.
- Kinked tubing anywhere between the valve and the dispenser outlet.
- Dissolved air or gases in the water supply.
- The slight expansion and contraction of the reservoir as it warms and cools.


In any case, since your fridge is just 6 months old, it will still be under warranty. It will be best to contact the point of purchase or manufacturer directly.

Hi Gary,

Basically since water isn't coming in, this would indicate that the water valve isn't letting water in. It doesn't require a pump since the water pressure in your house pipes is sufficient to put water into the refrigerator. This valve is controlled by a solenoid. As long as there is pressure at the hose behind the refrigerator and the hose isn't kinked then the most likely solution is replace this valve/solenoid. Let me know if you need any help with finding this or if you have any further questions and I would be glad to do what I can.

Good luck

How do you remove icemaker to check if water tube is frozen?


the ice maker is finished. get the ice maker model number and refrgerator model number and buy/ install a new one. It would be a good idea to replace the electric water valve to the ice maker as well.

Sounds like you have a problem with water valve/triple solenoid assembly. It controls the flow of water to the door and ice maker. I believe it comes as a complete unit.

GE Fridge water dispenser working but not the ice


Yes you most likely have a defective dual water control valve. Look around the inside of the refrigerator for a model number.
Click here=> For most locationsSide-By-Side
  • Top Freezer
  • Bottom Freezer
    Once you find the model number I will be able to tell you what part number the dual dual water control valve is or if your ice maker assist you in testing ice maker. If ice Maker is empty try filling with tap water to top edges of ice maker, allow water to freeze and if the ice drops into the ice bin but does not refill with water automatically I would say that the dual water control valve will need replaced. If your ice maker has old shrinking ice from a few days ago it will point to an ice maker problem.

    There isnt any water getting thru to the icemaker. i changed the watervalve and still no water i cannot locate the water filter even tho i removed the bottom grill, water is still getting to the water...


    if you put a new water valve on the fridge then you either have a bad ice maker or the line is frozen where the water fills the ice maker,a bad water valve will make the line freeze,water keeps dripping through the valve and freezes the fill line behind the ice maker cup,you can remove the ice maker and check the fill line,if it's frozen get a hair dryer,shut down the fridge or unplug it and blow the hot air into the fill line until the ice melts,then get a piece of wire and after you reinstall the ice maker pop off the cover to the ice maker and jump it out with the wire,stick it in the t and h for 15 seconds and pull it out,if the ice maker is good it will start turning and when the arms get at like 11 oclock it should fill,also you can jump out the fill valve from the ice maker,stick it in v and L and if water fills the ice maker you know you have a bad ice maker if the fill line isn't frozen.hope this helps.next time you need help send the model number,on your machine look in the fridge section on the right hand wall up near the ceiling to find it,if it's older look down near the bottom hinge on the fridge door and you'll see a tag with the model number.good luck

    Our automatic ice maker will not quit dripping in the freezer. It keeps clogging the ice maker with icicles and large blocks of ice. Essentially, it keeps "freezing over." We have defrosted it...


    if it keeps filling and overflowing you have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge.the part number is WR57X10027 and the valve is around 75 dollars.first thing lift the arm or shut off the ice maker so it won't leak anymore,you're missing a few letters off of the model number so when you call your parts store give them the full model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side wall up near the ceiling and give them the model number to make sure you get the correct valve,shut off the water supply to the fridge,then have the new valve next to the old valve when you remove a water line from the old valve just connect it to the new valve,do this until everything is changed out and the new valve is in place,turn on the water supply and you can check the ice maker to make sure it doesn't overflow.you can manually start the ice maker by grabbing the plastic arms of the ice maker and pull them forwards slowly until the arms start to advance on their own,you'll hear the water valve fill the ice maker and then you can watch it fill to see if the water is filling it correctly and i'm sure you'll be fine with the new water valve installed

    Ice tastes bad from ice maker


    Sometimes filters have issues like this even being new , it is located at the bottom kickplate [round] , pick up a new filter -part number 4396841 - install the filter , dump remaining ice in bin out , purge the water through the new filter through water in door for a few minutes and you should be good.

    Ice maker will not dispense the ice


    The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
    Remove the ice bin.
    Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
    It will be difficult to move.
    If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.
