Question about GE Refrigerators

Open Question

New auger motor in my GE Hotpoint fridge is turning counter-clockwise. The auger needs to turn the opposite way to dispense ice. I have tried reversing the wires, to no avail. Help

Ice dispenser will not dispens ice . light dims when pushed. ice maker works fine


It may be a good Idea to remove the ice bin, clean and dry ant the same time with bin removed see if while pushing the door light switch and the dispense ice control if the auger fork in the rear of the ice bin that normally turns the auger will rotate. Sometimes ice or water collects in the bin and locks the motor from turning and sometimes the motors go bad. Tell me your results, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My ice maker makes plenty of ice, no problem with the water either. My problem is that the auger will not turn to dispense the ice out of the bin. The motor kicks on when you push in the buttom, however it...


Pull the ice bucket out, then hold in on the door light switches and while you push a glass into the button for ice (may require two people). Ice dispenser and auger will only work, when you push for ice, when the freezer door is closed, so by holding the light switch(s) in the off position with door open you can simulate door being closed. If you can push the button and see the auger drive turn (with ice bucket out) then check to see if you have some ice stuck between the blades on the bucket, if the auger motor doesn't turn, it may be "ice frozen". Common problem. Remove motor, let sit on counter for about three hours and then reinstall, if it then works then check for water dripping from the fill tube, where the water comes into freezer for the ice maker, and see if it is dripping onto auger motor.

If you put auger motor back in and it still won't turn then more and likely you need an auger motor.

Let me know.

Hotpoint fridge dispenser works on water but not ice


If the little green lites show up , you do not need a circuit board . If you get a hum or buzzing noise when pushing for CRUSHED ice , then the auger motor is frozen up . Remove the ice bin and use a hair dryer directly on the forks which turn the dispensor . The heat will transfer into the motor , defrosting the armature . Try closing the freezer door ocassionally and pushing the arm to test if forks turn .

Ge side by side refrigerator model tfx20jrx ice wont dispense


If the auger will move freely with ice out of the pan then the auger motor may be defective. Sometimes the connection in the door switch is defective. When the door is closed the switch turns the circuit on to the auger and control panel. Because the auger uses more amps that the water dispenser the door switch may be the problem or auger motor is just worn out.

GE refrigerator model GSS22 WGMD ice maker motor


If you cant manually turn your auger motor, it may be bad. Does it dispense solid ice or no ice at all? Another thing may be your control panel. That could be bad too, it's the one sending juice to both your solenoid and auger motor.

GE GSS25LGM Ice maker not dispensing ice


You have one of three things wrong. The auger motor is frozen up, the ice bucket is broken or you need to dump out any ice, run warm water through the entire ice bucket, dry it out and try again with fresh cubes. My guess is the auger motor is frozen. You can buy a vinyl boot that covers the auger motor to prevent moisture buildup and freezing from GE Parts at 1-800-626-2002

Ge ice maker


Sound like the auger motor behind the ice bin is not turning. Pull the ice bin out and you will see to metal fingers with bolt in the center can you turn this clockwise by hand? If not the motor is likely frozen you can pull auger assembly out by removing 3-4 screws unplug the harness then take to counter and warm up motor with your hair dryer until you can turn motor by hand. then reinstall

Ice dispenser not working


Scorpio, remove the ice bin itself, dump the ice and see if you can move the bin auger by hand by turning the actuator in the rear. If the bin is ok, with the door open and the door switch held in see if the auger motor is turning when pressing the ice lever. If it's not turning the next logical step is to see whether the auger motor is getting voltage when calling for ice. Make sure the door switch is closed. The part number for the auger motor on the posted model is wr60x0202. Hope this gets you going..Catriver.
