Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Everything, as far as I can tell, is working as normal in my icemaker...crushed or cubed, making good ice, etc. but the chute is freezing up in my side by side...about once every week or two, I have to clear it out of the bottomside of the icemaker bin where it goes into the door to dispense....It will actually get frozen together with the door sometimes and I have to shake the door to get it open and to dislodge from the bin itself...

Ice maker will only dispence cubes, no crushed


I had this problem on a differnt fridge. What I discovered is that the tray has a spring that pushes the ice grinder into a postition by default. When you remove the ice tray, depending on whether the maker was set for crush or cube, the spring arm may reset to the undesired position. To fix it, I set the control on the fridge to match what was always coming out. Then I pulled out the ice drawer. Then I reinserted it and it lined up better with the interior controls. I ran some ice through it. Then after the ice matched the setting, I tried the other setting (cube or crushed). It was fixed..Hope this helps.

Ice cube stuck on crush


remove the ice bin,there must be a chunk of ice blocking the cubed dispenser chute of the dispenser and channeling all ice thru the chopper chute,run hot water thru it to melt any chunks blocking the cube chute,then dry it and let it get cold before filling with new ice or you will have the same issue again

My icemaker won't deliver cubes despite switching from crushed to cubes on selector, what's a guy to do


you have to take apart the complete ice maker from inside the freezer as it has to be cleaned on a regular basis to operate properly. check with your owners manual, it tells you how to clean it.the ice cube shoot is the first to freeze up & block your flow of ice. it's not hard to do. all the best.

Our GE Monogram Icemaker will only dispense crushed ice


You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid
Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components

GE Monogram refrigerator icemaker problem


This is normal if you have previously used the crushed ice mode. The refrigerator will continue to dispense crushed ice for some time until the reserves are depleted. If this continues for a longer period then shut down the refrigerator and remove the dispenser compartment, clean any remaining ice and reinstall it. Start the power supply and wait 5 hours for the ice to form. Use the cube mode and you will surely obtain ice cubes.

Ice maker only makes crushed ice, no cubes


The button which selects cubes versus crushed controls a solenoid which engages/disengages the crusher. If the mechanisms which crush and push the ice from the chute are all clean, free of ice, etc., then the solenoid is not working. It either has loose/dirty connections or the solelnoid is bad.

My icemaker is not making ice. This has happened 3 times in the past 3 years but this is the longest it has gone without making ice. The other 2 times it lasted 2 days. It has now been 4 daysince the ice...


Check the following:
 Is the freezer door closed completely?
 Is the ice storage bin installed correctly?
 Is there ice in the storage bin?
 Has the ice frozen in the storage bin?
 Is ice stuck in the delivery chute?
 Has the wrong ice been added to the storage bin? Use only
cubes produced by the current ice maker.
 Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
ice bucket?
Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice storage
bin.
 Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing “crushed”
ice?
Change the ice button from “crushed” to “cubed.” If
cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the button for
“crushed” ice and begin dispensing again.
 Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Ice will stop
dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
for dispenser motor to reset before using again.
