    THe freezer reads at -12, and the ice mold is completely inaccessible. There is no cut off arm that I can see. Are you sure you have the right model?

    I'm going to get a service call, because I think its either the electronics, or if there is a blockage, its inside the frig wall.
    Thank you.

Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it's frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don't refill with water.
ICE MAKER NOT GETTING WATER
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker wont make ice


Is water getting into the ice tray of maker? If not check for the water solenoid's proper operation. Is freezer temp at least 10 degrees or less? If not, the ice maker will not work. If ice in tray then perhaps the heater element is not working to melt it a tad ans allow the fingers to pudh the ice out and into the tray.

How to remove ice maker on ge profile pfss6pkwbss


You would first have to distinguish between if the tray has a crack in it or if the water valve is not closeing which would mean you would need a new water valve. Most all ice makers are held to the freezer wall by 3 1/4" screws you would unscrew these screws and unplug the power connector and remove the ice maker from the unit. Fill the ice tray with water and see if you do have a crack in the tray which is not as common as a water valve allowing to much water to go into the ice tray makeing it overflow. If you have any further questions message me back I await your reply.
Thank you,
Rick

Have a tfx26ppdaww GE profile freezer/refrig. The freezer is not producing ice. I do get water from the front door though. Not sure if its the water inlet section, the ice maker, or the control board are...


sounds like a section of the dual water inlet valve relay is shorted not letting water thru you need to replace they are not too expensive also check to see if the lever on the ice tray is not in the off(up) positionand hear if water fills up the ice tray if not replace the valve.

Ice maker not working


OK, that should be no problem. Test your ice maker and fill with water if empty of ice. If full of ice and not moving to dump tell me. I need to help you locate the problem doing that and answering will tell me the problem. Also look around the door frame and inside for the model Profile that you have. and get back with me as soon as possible, Thanks Sea Breeze

French door refrigerator selections?


size is most important consideration, measuring your opening and and depth(very important), this may narrow your search automatically. furthermore, the Amana,Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, Jenn-Air, and most of the Kenmore's are all the same manufacture, so the difference on the box will be cosmetic for most part,they all have the same inner workings, the GE and LG are also Identical to each other, samsung is a relatively new brand (so not much i can say about it, other then in my area not a very good support/tech support for.Although im a big Whirlpool guy, there happen to be some issues with the refrigs,especially the fan motors, but thinking they are under control now. all compressor issues should also be taken care of , since they should all be produced in one plant with one consistent compressor installed in unit .and judging a machine for its ice maker(if its one of the consideraions) then its unfair because all refrigs regardless of model(top freezer, s/s, or bottom freezer )all have issues with ice makers.
