GE PSS26NSWA Ice Maker quick working. Green power light flashes. Reset Ice Maker power switch and tried "test mode", but ice flippers do not rotate. Power light goes back to flashing after a minute or two. All other water and ice dispense functions seem to work properly. Water filter was replaced about six months ago. Other than "the damn thing is broken", what does the flashing green power light mean? Rich L

SOURCE: GE GSH22SGRE - water dispenser not working but ice cube maker working fine

mine did same thing. What is happening is the Water Line in the freezer door is freezing.

SOLUTION. Leave the freezer door open and turn off the freezer for a night. Be sure to dump out all of your ice cubes too.

In the morning it will work like new. To prevent it from happening again, open the FRIDGE door and use the electronic controls to raise the temperature of the freezer. You had it too cold before...thats why your water line froze in the first place.

The water line freezes inside the freezer door. There is now an add-on water line heater you can install to thaw the line.

SOURCE: water dispenser not working ice maker is fine

The refrigerator has a dual water valve. The water dispenser side of the valve may be defective, but, my experience has shown the problem to be in the water reservoir, located in the bottom of the fresh food section, which, might be frozen or the water line through the freezer door is frozen. Scenario #1: Remove the kick panel, disconnect the water line from the fitting. Have someone depress the water actuator, while, holding a cup to collect any water which may come through the line. If water comes through the tube. The problem is a frozen water line in the door. My best advice for this problem is to remove any frozen goods from the door. Take a piece of cardboard and seal the freezer section of the refrigerator with any kind of tape. Make sure you tape the door switch in the closed position, so, the refrigerator will continue it's normal operation. The frozen goods will remain frozen and the fresh food section will be okay. Leave the freezer door open. You might want to put a towel under the door. The water line will thaw. It might take 15 minutes. It might take 3 hours. Periodically check the water dispenser operation. When the water flows remove the cardboard. Scenario # 2:if, after disconnecting the water line and depressing the water actuator there is not water. The reservoir is frozen. Use a hair dryer to that the reservoir. You will have to remove at least a couple of crisper drawers to perform this action. The cause of a reservoir freeze is too little stuff in the drawers or too low a temp in the crisper drawer area.

Your model uses a electronic ice maker. If the tray has srinking cubes and if you fill to top with tap water, let freeze and if it does not drop the ice the problem most ikely is the icemaker mode=> WR30X10093 The ice maker has a thermistor or thermostat built in and communicates with the circuit board inside to tell when it is time to cycle. You can try the water test and let me know but this is a typical failure with that type of ice maker. If this solve you ice maker problem please rate me. If not explain what you tried and we will try the second test.

Hi, my model# is psi23scna. the whole unit

Check all your pin plug connections and then unplug the refrigerator for about 20 minutes with the ice maker turned off. Plug refrigerator back in and then switch the ice maker switch back on. This should reset board and ice maker which is also electronic. If this works let me know if not then tell me and i will send you the service manual. You either have a loose connection from board or a defective new board or electronic ice maker. Or just may need to have everything reset so they know they are connected to the new motherboard, Sea breeze

Ice maker in our GE profile refrigerator is not working

Ice maker Diagnostic Test:

- Remove the ice bucket
-Turn the ice maker off, wait 15 seconds than turn it back on
-Press the ice paddle three times, this will begin diagnostic test.

-In 3 minutes you should see the rack inside turn 360 degrees

-IF either DID NOT work, call 1-800-GE-CARES for ice maker replacement. A service call is approx $80. The $80 will be deducted from the part/labor if you choose to purchase/install parts from the service technician. If not, you will pay for the service call. Good luck.

I had this problem with my GE ice maker not working and it was an unbelievably easy fix. If you have the same ice maker then you will see a green light by the power switch. Below the ice maker is a "paddle" ice sensor. The paddle is attached to the ice maker and there is a coil type tension spring. If your paddle is loose, make sure the end of the spring (the pointy wire end) is inserted into a small hole. You probably can't see the hole but move the wire end until it pops into the small hole. You should now have tension on the paddle. At this point I had heard that the freezer light bulb may be drawing too much current for the ice makers motherboard. I removed the bulb and, UNBELIEVABLY, the ice maker began making ice! Try removing or replacing the LIGHT BULB first!

To reset the filter light you need to hold the button in for 3-5 seconds , the light will usually flash while you hold the button down then it will go solid and then go out once you release the button. The ice maker will only make ice when the freezer is cold enough approx -14c . Did it make ice ok before ? There is the possibility that when changing the water filter air got into the system and has not bleed out of the ice maker feed tube yet.
The Ice maker can usually be put into a test mode by turning it off , wait 30 secs then turn it back on and press the ice level sensing paddle back three times within 15 secs of switching the ice maker back on . The ice maker should then go through a forced harvest cycle and ask for water at the end of it.
Hope this helps
