Question about GE GFSF6KKY (259 cu ft) Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

We have the GE 5A. It makes ice but not enough. Almost like it needs to be reset. We had dumped all the ice into a cooler for an outing and ever since, hardly any ice is being made. Today when we tried to troubleshoot, a new problem came up: the light inside now won't come on when you open the fridge doors! UGH! That will teach us. My sister in law had a manual for hers and reset her ice maker by pushing her ice maker button from crushed to cube 4 times. Well ours goes from water - cubes - crush! One extra step! UGH and now no light! HELP! Skippa

The ice maker will make the ice but I have to manually press the reset button to have the ice dump into the tray. It will not dump ice on its own. This is for the samsung RF217AB french door bottom...


Make sure the freezer is cold enough. If not this might cause problems of poor dispensing.
If your ice makes unit has a 'heater'build into it, it just might be that the heater in the tray does not work..if so, new ice tray dispenser.

The ice machine stopped making ice


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.





Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

GE side x side When ice maker switch is on, freezer warms up


It sounds like the ice maker is stuck in the harvest ( dump ) mode , in the area of mold heater activation . This area , heats up the ice mold to unfreeze the cubes , and keeps rotating to dump the cubes . This heater , gets hot enough to actually burn you if you touch the mold .
I would remove the 2 screws holding the ice maker , unplug from the ice maker receptical , and replace the ice maker .

Icemaker not making ice


Sounds like you need to replace the ice maker. The mold heater appears to be defective.The mold heats up prior to a ice dump. I donot believe it is worth repairing

My GE side-by-side refrigerator is making a fairly loud ticking sound--about once every second-sounds like a big clock.


Water line to ice maker is frozen. Thaw out freezer. Put food in dry ice cooler and open freezer door, reset to OFF, and thaw freezer for four hours. It'll work after that.

GE Monogram ZISS480DMCS Ice Maker Problem


Check and make sure that the float arm in the ice bin is down and able to swing. This arm should be down until the bin is full of ice which would raise the arm and stop any water flow until ice cubes are removed, and allows the arm to drop again to start the cycle all over again, to replace the ice that was used. The arm has a spot to snap in and be held where it would be in a position all the way raised, to allow the bin to come out for cleaning or all of the ice removal from the bin, such as to dump the ice in a cooler. The arm should be gently pulled down to hang freely and will slowly raise on its own as the bin fills with ice.
