SOURCE: ice maker will not eject ice cubes in GE Profile gss25tswass

Empty all ice from the bin and from the "Drill" like Ice shaper spinning unit. Let the unit make some new ice and see if that works.

Does your dispenser face look like this part number WR55X10415
If not then we need to look for the correct model number in the photo locations below. I think the control board is shorting out behind this panel.
You can visit my sites below and enter model or part numbers for your refrigerator. Also I will be here to help you get the problem fixed, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Not making ice

The ice maker is electronic and has no replaceable parts. I wish all the companies would ban electronics on refrigerators. If the ice tray was empty you could have tested. When ice remains it already failed the test. You can buy OEM or generic. Personally I don't like the generic parts being sold by eBay and others. GE Marks their box with Genuine GE Parts. Anyway the part number is Click Here=> WR30X10093 Should you need more answers, If need you may contact me here on Fixya or my Forum=> Appliance 911 My contact information is located above the Fixya Ad on my blog here=> Sea Breeze Appliance Parts and Technical Services, www.pcappliancerepair.com Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: ice maker stopped making ice.

Ice maker stopped making ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------But if ice is getting made in the ice tray,but the ice is not ejecting out then there is blockage to the ice ejecting blade.May be some ice is got stuck below inside.Clear all ice frost collected under the ice chamber.And then see.---------------

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

SOURCE: GE GSH25JFRF BB ice maker doesn't dispense. Water dispenses and ice maker makes ice but won't come out.

There should be a plastice hinge cover on the left top hinge on freezer door. Take it off and press the plug together firmly. Try that and let me know, Sea Breeze

How to diagnose ice maker does not produce ice


The first thing to check is to make sure that the temperature in the freezer is below 10 degrees F. If not the ice maker will not work because the sensor in it won't allow it to call for water. If the temperature is good, check to see if there is ice in the ice maker.If there is and its not dropping ice then more than likely the mold heater which allows the ice to break free and thus be ejected has gone bad and you need to replace the ice maker. If no ice is there check the fill tube to make sure there is no obstruction, and if not turn the ice maker off, wait a minute, then turn it back on, When you do that a small amount of water should initially come in. If it doesn't then the water valve itself has failed. Also a note, check the water filter to make sure its not old, this too will also cause water not to come into the machine but you'll notice this also in the water dispenser area as well.

My ice maker on Maytag MF12468AE stopped making ice. When I add water to the tray, the cubes form but are not ejected. Is the the water valve bad or is the entire ice maker itself bad?


The ice maker is bad and they have been discontinued by the manufacturer. Luckily, there is a replacement part that works in your machine, part number W10477228. The reason I say its bad is because it should have atleast ejected the ice that was made when you poured water in it if it were working properly. The only other thing it could be is that the temperature is not cold enough in the ice maker area, which is 10 degrees F or colder. If the temperature isn't at least that then the ice maker won't cycle at all.

Won't dispense ice


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.

My ice maker does not eject ice when frozen. Make


Good day,
Unplug refrigerator.
Snap off front cover of the ice maker. You will see a large white gear.
If the plastic gear has a screw in the center, then you can remove the gear and inspect for broken teeth. The gear is easily replaced thru any appliance parts house.
If there is no screw then the ice maker uses a semi-solid circuit board and must be replaced.

AMANA ARB2257C ice maker makes noise/doesn't eject cubes into bin


Hi: First off make sure the fridge is level. Is It too high in front? Making the rear of the icemaker overflow and jam? Also make sure the freezer section is a zero degrees, not just frozen. Ice cream should be rock hard. I hope this helps you avoid calling service. Thank You, Jeff
