Question about Amana ARB1905C Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

GE Fridge Model# GSS22SGMD BS

My ice maker works properly, but when i push the lever to dispense the ice-- the motor sounds like it is just stuck (a humming/buzzing sound) and nothing dispenses. Could something be frozen in there? I am always chipping away at the big clumps of ice that tend to melt together... I was wondering what I could do to get this moving, and also wondering if possible letting the freezer thaw out would help at all...?

SOURCE: the auger arm doesn't turn. The ice maker still makes ice, it just can't dispense.

Take the ice container with auger inside it and defrost it. Withe the door open to the freezer push the switch that turns light on in freezer to turn it off. Have someone push the ice dispenser switch while you hold the light button in. Tell me if there is any movement in the auger motor in rear and let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Amana SBS Water and Ice maker issues

The water solenoid on the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is becoming clogged. There is only a very small hole in the diaphram of the valve. I suspect you have very hard water, or at least a fair amount of sediment in the water.
This valve will most likely need to be replaced by a qualified technician.
They sometimes can be cleaned, but it doesn't always work.

SOURCE: where is the thermostat on a GE profile refrigerator Side-by-Side

There is no thermostat ( cold control ) on your model refrigerator . It works off thermistors ( 3 in the refrig section and 2 in the freezer section ) . These thermistors , operate by the coldness which in turn , less resistance to the main control board the colder or warmer it will provide .

Loud noise from freezer of GE model GSF25TGTB (Side by side)


Problems not related.  The first is most likely the fan, or possibly water dripping on to the fan and freezing, but usually the noise comes from the fan struggling to run.  The cube problem could be as simple as the ice dispenser being put back in wrong.  There is a metal lever under the ice tray that switches between crushed and cubed.  Make sure it is seated properly.

Ice Dispenser


If you access the ice container and remove any partially melted ice - maybe the ice maker will work. We had a similar problem. We opened the ice reservoir and discovered ice cubes that had partially melted together. Once we removed those, the ice maker and water dispenser returned to normal. Now we check every so often.

See if ice is jammed up in the tunnel the ice is pushed through.
Will the motor turn the auger with all the ice removed.
