    again ice maker is not making very much ice. Does anyone have a solution? I just turned down the temperature to see if that would speed up the process. We get one ice dump every 8 hours. Your thoughts?

    Ice maker will only dump once or twice a day.

    Our Scotsman is producing about 1 to 2 ice cubes an hour. Once the cubes drop down into the bin they start to melt slowly. The repair man came and replaced a part (I'm so sorry that I don't know what part, but it was in a very small 4"X6" box). He turned it back on when he left, and it began to do the same thing. The inside of the box is cool, but not 32 deg. Any ideas what the problem is?

    Little ice is made. It appears that the action that kicks out the ice when dumping gets hung up and when you manually push it back down, it will make another tray of ice.

    I've had the same problem for quite some time. Usually an ice cube gets stuck and prevents the mechanism from moving. I move it manually and it will make anywhere between 5 ice cubes to 500. Really great for planning a party!!

The problem may be connected to the mineral content in your water supply. Particles can bond at the valve/water supply line entry point and restrict flow. Turn water supply off, remove icemake line, carefully screw openings, have someone open water valve and expel particles. a solid stream means it's ok. A dribble means it needs more reaming ..repeat if necassary. If flow is good and ice crescents are still small then the icemaker valve on the refrigerator may need to be replaced. A quick fix can be tried by taking off the IceMaker face. Increase duration of fill by turning adj. toward "+''. judge lar

We just hooked the water up today at 1:00 PM and I have a few cubes but it is not full. How long does it take to fill it up? Is there something I can do to fix the problem?

I had this problem with my GE ice maker not working and it was an unbelievably easy fix. If you have the same ice maker then you will see a green light by the power switch. Below the ice maker is a "paddle" ice sensor. The paddle is attached to the ice maker and there is a coil type tension spring. If your paddle is loose, make sure the end of the spring (the pointy wire end) is inserted into a small hole. You probably can't see the hole but move the wire end until it pops into the small hole. You should now have tension on the paddle. At this point I had heard that the freezer light bulb may be drawing too much current for the ice makers motherboard. I removed the bulb and, UNBELIEVABLY, the ice maker began making ice! Try removing or replacing the LIGHT BULB first!

GE Bottom freezermakes little ice

The ice maker has a temperature sensor inside that lets the ice maker know its time to drop the ice and refill with water. That could be the problem or the water control valve for the ice maker is not opening when its called to refill the trays. I will try to help you, Sea Breeze

Ice maker not making ice. red light on control panel blinking twice.

Remove the ice bucket and inspect the ice maker for an ice cube stuck in the ejector. Hit it with a little heat of a hair dryer till it gets loose and the ice maker starts rotating. Replace the ice bucket. See if it starts making ice again amigo.

make sure the ice maker is turned on, push and hold the little round button on the front for 15 seconda and see if it starts up an cycles. Also check to make sure the fill tube isn't clogged to the ice maker and another thing to check is the water valve.
