Tip

What to do if your ice maker stops working


Many refrigerators now come with built-in ice makers. Ice makers are very convenient, but occasionally they'll develop problems. Why pay a repairman to come out if the fix is easy and you can do it yourself?

Here are some tips for fixing an ice maker that stopped working.

- Check the on/off switch

Freezers with automatic ice makers have a switch that is used to turn the ice-making feature on or off. This switch is typically a rod above the ice box; when it's lowered, the ice maker is on, and when it's raised the ice maker is off. If the ice box fills up with ice, the ice can force the rod up, turning off the ice maker. Check this bar to be sure it is in the lowered position.

- Check if the auger or chute is clogged

Your ice maker has a chute where the ice falls from the freezer into the external tray (where a glass is placed). There is also an auger inside the freezer that rotates to drive the ice forward from the ice box into the chute. Check the chute for large chunks of ice that may be clogging it up, and check the auger for ice cubes or chunks that might have gotten wedged between the auger and the freezer, causing the auger to be unable to rotate.

- Check the water line

If you still haven't found the problem, check the water line leading into the freezer. This water line has its own valve. Make sure the valve is open, allowing water into the freezer to create the ice.

NEED PROCEDURE FOR REMOVING THE ICE MAKER FOR INSPECTION AND TROUBLESHOOTING. FRIG IS NEW...ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE !!!!!


Are you sure you have the ice bin properly in place?

Ice bin must be locked in place for proper ice dispensing. If necessary, turn auger driver behind ice bin counterclockwise to properly align ice bin with auger driver.


• Press the switch ON to activate ice maker. Slide bin into guide rails located on either side of the enclosure. Push the ice bin in until resistance is felt. Raise the front slightly and push the ice bin completely in. An audible "click" is heard when the ice bin is located correctly.


• After freezer section reaches between 0° to 2° F (-18° to -17° C), ice maker fills with water and begins operating. You will have a complete harvest of ice

approximately every hour.

• Allow approximately 3 to 6 hours after installation to receive first harvest of ice.

• Discard ice created within the first 12 hours of operation to verify system is flushed of impurities.

• Stop ice production by pressing the ON/OFF switch located on the front of the ice maker.

• The first one or two batches will probably contain undersized and irregular cubes because of air in the supply line.

• When the ice cubes are ejected it is normal for several cubes to be joined together at the ends. They can easily be broken apart. The ice maker will

continue to make ice until the supply of ice cubes raises the ice maker arm, shutting the ice maker off.

• Certain sounds may accompany the various cycles of the ice maker. The motor may have a slight hum, the cubes will rattle as they fall into an empty storage bin and the water valve may click or "buzz" occasionally.

GE refrigerator model GSS22 WGMD ice maker motor


If you cant manually turn your auger motor, it may be bad. Does it dispense solid ice or no ice at all? Another thing may be your control panel. That could be bad too, it's the one sending juice to both your solenoid and auger motor.

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.

Fridigaire side by side ice maker not dispensing


The auger does not have the strength to do it's job when a lot of ice is in the way. You can defrost the icemaker with a blow dryer. It will be messy so be ready with lots of towels or a mop.

Once the unit is dry, spray the auger with PAM or some similar cooking spray. Then let it recycle.

You can temporarily prevent more fresh water from entering the ice maker by simply moving the wire arm to the up position

Fridigaire side by side ice maker not dispensing


I just fixed my daughter's frig with the same problem. The gear of both the box and the ice holder got water in the gear box and froze. This did not allow the gears to mesh and turn the auger. Clean the ice from both sides of the gears and try it. Works great now.

ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE ON MY GE SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE.

Jan 20, 2009 | GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Quit making ice


The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
