Sounds like the inlet water valve for the icemaker is not shutting off 100%. That would result in either A.) a block of ice plugging the tube where the water passes through from the outside of the freezer into the freezer compartment, or B.) an ice waterfall in the freezer into the ice bin and/or down the back wall of the freezer compartment.
Solution to either: replace water valve and remove ice with the aid of a hair blower.

GE profile refrigerator pss266msra has a problem with the freezer. Replaced the thermistor and heater as suggested since I had ice buildup. Now icemaker is leaking water which is freezing into icicles -...


One of two things is happening.
1) the fill tube leading from outside the box into the icemaker may have ice buildup or is too close to the icemaker fill wall. Make sure there is a gap between fill tube and wall and check for ice in the tube.
2) wait for the icemaker to call for water and see how long is calls water for. It is only suppose to be 7.2 seconds. If it calls for water longer it can be overflowing. If overflowing than replace icemaker.

Usually there is ice buildup or something that the water is hitting and splashing everywhere.
If you have anymore questions or need more assistance please comment.

Icemaker over fills G E profile


To be sure I would need your model number of your profile. If the electronic it will not be adjustable. Do you know for sure that the water control valve is not leaking? I am going to point you to a site that may help you locate model numbers. GE now makes the bottom freezer profile and I don't want to mix it up by guessing.

Icemaker leaking


Check two things.

1: see if you have ice buildup in the water inlet tube above ice maker, if you do chance are the water valve is bad, if not,

2: see if you have icicles hanging from bottom of ice maker, if you do you have a bad ice maker.

Either way, will need full model number and serial number both to get you the right part numbers for parts.

Ice maker tube freezing up


  • change the water valve on the back of the machine.
  •  the water valve is slowly leaking water up to the icemaker where it freezes and builds up ice, blocking the water flow.
