  • change the water valve on the back of the machine.
  •  the water valve is slowly leaking water up to the icemaker where it freezes and builds up ice, blocking the water flow.

What you think is probably correct. Water valves can seep water and freeze the fill tube. Remove the ice maker and the fill tube remove ice from the fill tube and replace the water valve.

The water tube in my freezer keeps freezing up, so the ice maker won't work. How do I fix this permanently


That is a bad water valve. Dripping like a faucet it forms a stalagmite in the fill tube. Melt the ice with a hair dryer and replace the faulty water valve.

Tube feeding ice maker comes off


Good day,
Common problem. Remove ice maker, and make sure tube fits all the way to the rear and seats properly.
Then reinstall ice maker and telescope front part of file tube until it fits into ice ice maker properly. (retaining clip in place).
For the cost, a new fill tube makes sense. Also.........
If the water valve leaks slightly after shutting off during a fill cycle, a plug of ice will build up inside the the fill tube, pushing it off on the next fill cycle. Requires installing a new water valve.

I have a GE Profile side by side fridge and need help with my icemaker. It's making great ice but seems to have to much water. Is there some way to adjust the time on for the water fill valve?


Your model has the electronic control behind the front cover and not very serviceable. The part number providing your refrigerator is the PSW26P model the ice maker part number would be WR30X10093 for that Model. You may also take into consideration that it is also a possible bad water valve on the rear leaking after shut off. That would show up as water running over the sides and the freezing and possibly freezing the fill tube in the back of the ice maker causing water to go everywhere. But most likely it is the control board inside the front of your ice maker. Thanks Sea Breeze

all is normal with the defrost heater getting red hot.

as far as the inlet tube freezing, you most likely need a new water inlet valve. it may not be closing all the way and water is slowly dripping into the icemaker and freezing up right away. a new valve should fix your issue. here is the part that you need. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-TFH27PRSA-%3d%3di1032629&PartID=1032629

We have a GE Profile refrig, circa 1995. The ice


If you are sure it is caused by the ice maker or if it is not it can be fixed. The only way an ice maker would leak like that is if ice is blocking the inlet tube and when the water comes on the water is spewed in a different direction than the ice maker. Most times this is caused by a slow leak in the water control valve for the ice maker side at the rear of the refrigerator. You can stop the problem by melting the ice in the fill tube with a hair dryer and keeping an eye on it until you see ice beginning to build up there again. That would indicate a slow leak in the water control valve that is not closing all the way when off. The other reason for large pools of ice in the freezer is a frozen over defrost condensate drain behind the cover in the rear of the freezer and would require you to unplug power and remove the rear panel. I will try to get some photos and a link shortly that covers that problem a lot more in just a few minutes. Sea Breeze

Ice maker doesn't work


When you say you are getting water do you mean you are getting water in the ice maker tray? If so then unfortunately you will need to replace the ice maker. If not getting water to the ice maker then make sure the fill tube to the ice maker isn't frozen shut. If so, thaw it out and see what happens. If it isn't frozen shut then replace the ice maker. New ge ice makers, when installed, will not cycle until the ice maker gets below freezing so you will have to wait once it is installed.
