Ice dispenser making loud noise

Most of the time when we use the "cubed" setting on the ice dispenser it makes a loud grating noise. I've already called GE and according to the "secret manual" that they could not send me that's considered "normal" ??? I think they are just to lazy to come out and fix it but... I've tried everything I can think of - realigning the teeth in the back to assure it is catching, replaced the water filter just in case, made sure the cubes weren't frozen solid, etc.... It happens 95% of the time - no matter the time of day. The lady at GE suggested it'll happen sometimes depending on what cycle the freezer is in but it happens all the time.

I have a ge adora fridge that when pressing the lever for ice makes a loud humming noise & feels like freezer wants to explode. Cab anyone tell me if they have ever run into this issue


You probably have a ice dam in your ice tray. The anger is trying to dispense if but if the cubes have frozen together and produced a large chunk of ice it cannot break up. Open the freezer door completely and lift up and pull out through ice tray. Remove ice until dam removed. Reassert tray and make sure to turn ice maker back on. It is essy to inadvertently bump switch. Try dispensing ice to see. If noise went away.
Hope this helped!

Ice dispenser appearing to get stuck in the open


The noise is probably the solenoid which operates the door or the one that switches it from cube to crushed ice. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} You'll have to look to see what's wrong.

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.
Here's a diagram of the dispenser which may help.

Loud noise from freezer of GE model GSF25TGTB (Side by side)


Problems not related.  The first is most likely the fan, or possibly water dripping on to the fan and freezing, but usually the noise comes from the fan struggling to run.  The cube problem could be as simple as the ice dispenser being put back in wrong.  There is a metal lever under the ice tray that switches between crushed and cubed.  Make sure it is seated properly.

GE GSH25KGMD Crushed Ice Only


Remove the ice bin . Set the dispensor for cube and push in the door switch . Press the dispensor pad and you should hear a loud bang . If your looking inside at the same time , you should see a square white "gate" lift . This gate lifts to lift the rod on the ice bucket to give cubed ice . If this gate does not lift , then the auger solenoid is probably bad . Part # WR62X58

Ice maker only dispenses crushed ice, won't dispense cubed ice anymore.


I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.

I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice


You may not need to replace the solenoid.  If you hear the hum, and not a loud click and don't see then rod move, it may be frozen with ice.  Test it manually with your hand, it should be free  to move up and down.  If not, then it is frozen with ice.  Remove the ice dispenser and let it thaw and dry out.  You should then be able to move to rod and it will work fine, at least until it freezes again.  Anyone know how to prevent it from freezing up? Its a continual problem for me
