SOURCE: side by side refrigerator icemaker

What is the freezer temperature? What happens to the water that is in the ice maker? Is it frozen and just not popping out? Is it filling completely? If it is full and just stopping , the icemaker is probably bad. If the freezer temp is below 10 degrees It should cycle with no or little water in it. If it is cycling try replacing the valve. If the temperature is right and it is still not running at all. replace the ice maker. (Usually just 2 - 3 screws and plug the new one in.) valve will run about $25 ice maker about $75

SOURCE: hotpoint hss25Gfpd ww, wtf?

I had the same problem. The hose connecting the water supply to the door was frozen. Just completely thaw out the freezer (which may be easier said than doen if it is full of frozen food!) and that should fix the problem.

The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: Refrigerator works, freezer doesn't

The part that is usually the issue on this model is the defrost thermostat.

I usually test it for continuity while its frosty with an ohm meter. If you don't have an volt/ohm meter, you can get a cheap one at Radio Shack.

It clips on the top right side of your evaporator coil. It is part 23 on the diagram at this website http://content.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/P0070077-00003.png

Let me know if you need anything else

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


Take the icemaker out and let it sit in the sink for around 12 hours. Then put it back in. This has worked for me when I have the same problem. I think that the water line is freezing up. I have to do this every month or two.

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.
