    It doesn't cycle offThe
    thermostat cycles the freezer on and off. The cooling system runs as
    long as the temperature inside the freezer is higher than the set
    temperature. If the temperature inside the freezer is cold enough, but
    the thermostat doesn't cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If
    so, you need to replace it.

GE Ice Maker freezing


Not sure exactly what you mean by the ice maker freezing, ice makers are suppose to freeze. But if you are referring to the ice maker not being able to harvest the ice since it is frozen in there to tight, then the heater that is on the bottom of the ice maker has failed and you will need to replace the ice maker.
Here is a link to the new ice maker.

The ice maker on my refrigerator has stopped making ice. Water is still flowing but the tray doesn't fill and the whole mechanism seems not to function.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If the ice maker dumps the frozen cubes , but doesn't refill with water , you should replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , where the wall water line connects to . If the Ice maker does not eject the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker .
Also , check the ice maker fill tube , from the back wall inside the freezer , to the ice maker fill cup , to see if it's frozen . If so , you will need to remove it , and clean the ice out . This would be caused by a " seeping " bad water valve also .
Check the coils under the refrig , to make sure they are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp above 5 degrees , which is the temperature which the ice maker needs to operate properly .

Ice maKer is not getting water but the water side works.


Your refrig water valve , has 2 coils on one valve . One is for the water dispensor , and one is for the ice maker . So even if you get water thru the dispensor , the other coil ( for the ice maker ) could be bad . The fill tube from inside the freezer to the ice maker , could be frozen solid , keeping the water from entering the ice maker . This frozen tube , would be caused be the water valve " seeping " , which means , it isn't closing completely , and drips freezing inside the tube . indicating a bad water valve . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps , but doesn't refill with water , replace the water valve but also check this tube . If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker , but also check the coils under the refrig , for dust , lint , etc , needing to be cleaned off . The ice maker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and dirty coils can keep the freezer at 6 degrees or above .

Remove door and icemaker from bottom freezer model 59673914200 -- icemaker wont turn


The ice maker switch had come unattached due to excess ice buildup, and frozen to the ice pack. The ice in the ice maker had also frozen into a solid block due to not being able to rotate. After removing the drawer trays and protecting the frozen food, turning off the refridgerator, I used a hair drier to melt and remove the ice from the ice maker, gave it time to dry out, -- No gears wer stripped,- the ice maker now works normally.

Ice maker is frozen in a kitchen aid side by side


Try pouring HOT water into the ice molds to release the frozen cubes. Hopefully the ice maker will restart the cycle and get back to normal!

Ice maker not making ice


Water solenoid to ice maker not working. Check with ohm meter..should NOT read open
Water line to Ice maker frozen solid. Look at water inlet to ice maker....is ice present in line?
Evaporator coils frozen over with ice. Will cause water line to freeze and unit will slowly thaw.
Try unplugging the unit for several hours and see if it starts to cool normally again. If it cools normally then check heater element and Defrost Thermostat.

Ice maker


check the fill cup on the back of the ice maker for an obstruction of frozen ice, it the fill cup is frozen over then the water entering the ice maker will cascade over the frozen ice down into the freezer

if frozen melt it with a hair dryer then it will be ok

Ice maker doesn't work


When you say you are getting water do you mean you are getting water in the ice maker tray? If so then unfortunately you will need to replace the ice maker. If not getting water to the ice maker then make sure the fill tube to the ice maker isn't frozen shut. If so, thaw it out and see what happens. If it isn't frozen shut then replace the ice maker. New ge ice makers, when installed, will not cycle until the ice maker gets below freezing so you will have to wait once it is installed.
