I have a GE Adora side-by-side refrigerator Model # DSD26DHWA-BG. About 1 year ago the ice maker stopped producing ice. The mold that forms the ice cubes is filling up with water but never pushes out...


Hello, there are three screws that hold the icemaker in place if you remove these three screws and unplug the icemaker and remove it from the unit. After you take the icemaker out take the entire unit with the cover on it and run it under hot hot water this is actually quiet common for an icemaker to freeze up well actually its the parts on the inside of the icemaker that are freezeing up. After you defrost the icemaker as I term it then you would dry the icemaker and reinstall it. when the icemaker reaches 32 degrees the icemaker will call for water once again from the water valve if at this time after the ice forms the unit still doesnt drop the icecubes then you would have no other alternative then to buy another icemaker they usually sell for around 50-90 dollars american. The icemaker is not worth replacing parts on due to if you were to replace parts on the icemaker you would end up spending about 4 times as much as the entire icemaker costs. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks again Rick

Icemaker stopped producing ice


Your ice maker can be rebuilt. I would disconnect it from the plug and remove it and carefully take it apart. Be careful not to loose the lever arm spring as you disassemble. Look at it once the screws ar removed under the front cover. It is rare to have a defective new water control valve. But once the ice maker is unplugged you will know because the ice maker is what tells the water to come on once the cube rake reaches home position. Sometimes the thermostat that tell the water on is stuck or the micro switch that tells the heater below the ice maker to remain on causing the same symptoms. So it will be most likely the ice maker and less likely the water control valve. The parts are priced so high it is cheaper to buy new than to buy parts. But I have fixed them without replacing parts. Sometimes the micro-switches just get stuck. What to rebuild it and me help you? Sea Breeze

Ice maker leaks or runs over Causing big chunks of ice in the drawer


It's very possible that the water inlet valve isn't cutting off completely. I had that to happen on mine.

Icemaker not working, the water despencer is ok, so i know there is water coming in ,it is in on position, no ice is stuck,what do i look for? next move


When the ice is frozen hard the ice maker has a heater that activates so the ice can be released, the a rotating mechanism rotates to push the ice out of the ice maker. Then cycle starts again by dispensing water in the tray. A lot of times the ice maker itself is defective and must be replaced. They are just attached by two screws and plugs into the freezer plug.

Our kenmore side by side is leaking water into the bottom of the freezer how do I find where it is coming from and repair?


Most of the time that problem is caused by your drain hole in the freezer being blocked up with food or trash....or sometimes ice. Every 8, 10, or 12 hours depending on your defrost timer you fridge will defrost itself and drain the water under the fridge to a pan. If that drain is plugged then the water runs into the bottom of the freezer and sometimes will leak out onto the floor of your house. Another thing that it could be is the icemaker. Make sure the icemaker is not spilling water all over. If your icemaker is working ok, and there is not icecicles all over then rule out the icemaker. I would bet it's your drain.

Not cooling and has a clicking sound


hi friend,

Refrigerator Not Cooling Is your Refrigerator not cooling? This Refrigerator repair guide will walk you through the procedure of repairing your refrigerator. This is the same procedure I go through every time I check a refrigerator. So with a little from this refrigerator repair guide your refrigerator will up and running in no time. Below is a list of problems that can cause your problem. Read through each one carefully until you find and repair your refrigerator. If you decide that you need a part in order to repair your appliance, you can Buy appliance parts on-line and save.show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 It’s easy! Just find the model number of the appliance you are working on. Next, type it in to the model number box and it will take you to an illustrated parts diagram for your appliance. Then just simply choose the part you need from the diagram. If you need help finding your model number click here
DEFROST Defrost can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem. To check to see if you have a defrost problem, look in the freezer to see if there is ice build up on the evaporator cover. (The evaporator covers are either in the back of the freezer or on the bottom of the freezer). If there is ice build up click here. refrigerator not cooling If not, keep reading on.
Top-freezer Leaking/Refrigerator Not Cooling On a top-freezer when the drain stops up water will back up turning to ice and eventually filling the air ducks with ice blocking airflow to the fresh food section causing it not to cool. You will also see a water leak inside the fresh food section. To fix this, remove the evaporator cover, (back or bottom of freezer) and then remove all the ice. Once all the ice is removed, you need to unclog the drain. I do this by forcing hot water down the drain with a turkey baser but you can use any squirt bottle, I have even used the water hose. Once the drain is clear, mix water and baking soda and pour it down the drain to prevent this from happening again anytime soon.
DIRTY CONDENSER Dirty condenser can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem.. If the condenser is dirty, the compressor will cut off on the overload. (A thermostat that is on the side of the compressor that cuts it off if it overheats). Often when this happens you’ll hear a clicking noise about 2 to 3 minutes apart. This is your compressor cutting in and out as it overheats and cools off. Now you need to find out why the compressor is overheating. First you’re going to need to remove the cover from the back of the refrigerator. Once you remove the cover you should see the compressor. Now look at the condensing coils (condensing coils are going to be either behind the compressor, beside the compressor or on the back of the refrigerator) to see if they are dirty if so clean them. To clean the condenser I normally use a brush made for this. You can buy them at Wal-Mart. Once clean your problem may be fixed. Leave refrigerator unplugged for a while (20 min. or so). Then plug it back in and if the compressor doesn’t overheat problem is fixed. If it still overheats read on.
START RELAY (Compressor clicking won’t start) The start relay can also cause the fresh food and the freezer sections not to work. If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it’s bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it’s bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it’s ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it don’t cost much in most cases (less than $25). If you replace it and it doesn’t work then the compressor is bad and you’ll need you call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).
STUCK IN DEFROST If your refrigerator is stuck in defrost, this can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem. Just simply turn the defrost timer a ¼ turn. Defrost timers are normally located in the fresh food section near the controls or at bottom behind kick plate. If the refrigerator comes on replace timer. If your refrigerator is newer, the timer may be electronic; therefore, you can’t do this. But it can still be your problem, although I haven’t seen this often.
COLD CONTROL The cold control can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem. This is the least likely of all the problems but happens sometimes. Turn the control up all the way and tap on it. If the refrigerator comes on then replace cold control. If it still doesn’t come on, it may still be bad. You can check it by first unplugging the refrigerator and taking the control out and test it with an . ohmmeter Unplug the wires and see if you have continuity between the terminals, if not replace control.
MAIN CONTROL BOARD Some newer refrigerators have a main control board and this can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem. This can be hard to diagnose if you don’t have a wiring diagram or don’t know how read one. I can’t help you because I would need a wiring diagram of your refrigerator to diagnose a main board.

Icemaker quit working


Hello.

First of all you need make sure that your freezer is freezing enough. Sometimes everything will seem to be freezing ok, but it won’t be cold enough to make the icemaker work. The best way is to squeeze your ice cream, if you have any that is.

Then you need to make sure that the ice level sensing arm is in the down/on position.
If all of this checks out ok, then you need to make sure that nobody turned off the water supply that is sometimes located under the kitchen sink. Also make sure that the ice bucket is positioned properly so as to trigger the ice bucket sensing switch.

If all of this checks out ok, let me know and I can guide you through an icemaker diagnosis by forcing it into a harvest mode.

Ice tray overflow


Sorry for taking so long to answer.  The icemaker needs to be removed from it's mount to install the updated tray.  There should be only one screw on the front of the bracket supporting the icemaker.  Once the screw is removed, slide the entire icemaker assembly forward and drop it down.  This will expose the wire harness connection.  Disconnect the plug from the connector and take the icemaker out to work on it.  You need to remove the motor part of the icemaker from the bracket to replace the tray.  Carefully push the bracket up as you push the motor box down and slide foward to separate the two.  It looks impossible but it actually does come apart easily.  Once the box is separated, the tray can be replaced.  Reverse the process to assemble.  Good luck.
