  1. Unplug the refrigerator.
  2. Remove the icemaker's front cover by unscrewing or prying it off as needed
  3. Remove the ice bin, shelves, and vertical partition.
  4. Remove remaining screws, disconnect the icemaker wires from the harness connector or socket, and remove the unit from the freezer.
  5. Remove the back access panel and any fasteners that hold the inlet valve to the refrigerator.

Gss20I eph ice maker ?? If I turn the switch of


I am almost sure the model ice maker for your refrigerator is Click Here=> WR30X10093 and the model number for your refrigerator is GSS20IEPHWW or SS for Stainless. It sounds as if a bad connection on the ice fill arm. The truth is they are electronic and made in China along with most of the parts on your GE. I replaced mine that was the mechanical type with this same model number WR30X10093 and the mechanical lasted 15 years. If you manually can make it work one time and fills properly but after one cycle yet turns itself off my focus is on the ice maker. If you want to check OHM's to the dual water control valves they should both be about the same. Applying 120 volts to each side of the coils being water dispenser side and ice maker side will or should open them. But you just said that moving the arm that it will fill one time so I am back to the ice maker again. If water control valve for ice maker side did not work you would not be able to do that.

-PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH ICE MAKER DURING DIAGNOSTICS

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

Ice maker dispencer motor won't spin. You can hear a click, and the ice dispenser light dims. The water dispenser works fine.


Best solution is to replace the ice maker. The ice makers are a cheap item and very hard to work on. It is easier to replace the ice maker rather than trying to take it a part and replaced the motor or gears. If you do want to take on the project you have to remove the ice maker and check the gears for a worn spot and the motor to see if it is still running. Parts can be purchased at a local appliance dealer. In tulsa we have Greers appliuances.

GE side by side refrigerator


Mike, Most times when this happens it's the water control valve for the ice maker side that becomes defective. If using an OHM meter you unplugged the 2 coils and read the OHM's they should be very close to equal. The part number for the water control valve is WR57X10032 and the part number for the ice maker is WR30X10093 Unfortunately the ice maker is electronic and there are no replaceable parts. You can test the ice maker by filling with tap water allow to freeze and if it dumps then the ice maker is good and the water control valve is bad, Thanks, Please Rate Me, Sea Breeze

Ge profile side By side ice maker water leak


This sounds like the float mechanism has gone bad. Remove it and have a look. It may be the float or the switch on it that is bad. There is also a solenoid valve. Parts kits are available. Shut off the water first!
