Ice maker makes ice and won't stop when full

I'm sure this is simple but I have tried thawing it out, cleaning, actuating the flapper, nothing works... it just keeps making ice non stop. If I turn the switch off, it does stop. Can you help me?

Our ice machine is making too much ice. When we open the door, ice spills out - so for some reason, whatever triggers the machine to know that it has enough ice made, seems to be malfunctioning. Any...

When frost builds up on the little flapper at the top of the door above the ice maker it can get stuck. It tells the ice maker to keep making ice. Try cleaning the mechanism of frost and make sure it operates freely.

No water to icemaker, but through the door water is working. Ice maker itself is ok.

This is most likely cause because some part of the ice maker/distribution mechanism is broken. If at all possible, remove everything from the fridge and freezer and allow the freezer to thaw. If that is not possible, you could try and remove just the ice maker to thaw it or try and thaw it while it is still in the freezer. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Why does water dispenser stop working? Seems to work fine after thawing freezer for about a day and seems to freeze up. Water line for dispenser routes through the door.

The water is door spigot can be freezing up if the ice door is stuck open. When you actuate your ice in door function you hear a solenoid CLICK. That solenoid is supposed to open the ice door flapper. If the flapper is not funtioning correctly (stuck open) then in as few as as 2 - 3 days your water in door can freeze again. If you want unit specific information we need your make and model number to better help you.

Thanks for hoosing FixYa,

Will not release ice and makes crushed ice, even when on cubed.

I believe in your case the ice maker part number WR30X10093 being electronic with the control board in the front is the problem. I think the control board behind the front cover of the ice maker may have corrosion and causing the ice maker to malfunction. You can try disconnecting the set of wires to the coil on the water control valve and see if the water stops or turn off the ice maker first and try disconnecting the coil wires later. It has to be the control board or the water control valve part number WR57X10032

Probably the dual valve (solenoid) is leaking and overflood the ice maker.

Ice maker on GE Profile quit working. Emptied tray of ice and put back in, not producing any ice.

Make sure the "Full" actuator is in the down position. Sometimes when the ice tray is removed, the full actuator flips up to stop ice production.
Hope this helps.

Check water turned on. check ice button switch turned on in fridge. remove juice storage, ice container in freezer, check ice bucket full white plastic flapper to make sure not stuck on a white peg at top. flapper must hang down and be freely movable to signal ice maker to keep busy. If up high will turn off ice maker. Lots of other parts especially heater circuits involved also: fill tube supply heater not working then frozen supply line then no ice. Look for wiring diagram in ziplock behind compressor grille. can order parts at logical design, layout, easy to get to sensors, heaters. makes sense if look at it long enough.
