Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a GE TFX27PF Refrigerator,

Suddenly the ice tray was overfilling and would drip down into the storage box, where it would harden into a block of ice. Now the ice tray doesn't even allow water to enter and just triggers the IC warning light.

Ice maker overfills the ice tray, ejecting large block of ice instead of individual cubes.

What is your model number? Sounds like you may need a new icemaker. Sometimes when the icemaker motor goes bad it causes the icemaker to keep filling even though it hasn't kicked out the ice in there. Also, are you sure there isn't 2 valves on the refrigerator?

Kenmore refrigerator model 795

Hi,

This is a simple fix but will take a little time to correct this. First of all, empty the freezer of food and shelving, ice maker if you have it also. The back wall in the freezer is a false wall, so gain access by removing screws and harness from top left corner. By the way turn off the unit or unplug it!! Now at the bottom of the unit far back you will see an ice glassier in the bottom middle is a drain hole that all the water is to exit after defrost. Well because its blocked with ice the water overfills and leaking into the refer section. Make sure you can use hot water to clear this out but make sure you cleaned out the entire drain system before reassembling this to restore cooling. Once clear you problem is solved.

Good Luck

It's either the ice tray leaking , In witch case you should replace it , Or the water inlet valve is is sticking open and overfilling the tray, in this case you will need to replace the valve behind the refrigerator where the hose connects. Good luck

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.

when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

Ice maker leaking inside freezer compartment, water dripping down from unit

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Water may be dripping into the ice bin. If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Also the water can be diverted from the ice mold by ice blocking the fill tube if the water inlet valve is leaking.

Our GE profile 24.6 cubic ft refrigerator is overfilling the ice maker. What is the problem. It is leaking (just dripping) out of the ice cube trays.Thanks.

It either puts too much water in when it fills(take the plastic end cover off and look for an adjustment knob with +/-. Turn it toward -) Or does it constantly keep dripping all the way through the cycle(replace water inlet valve.)

Kenmore refer #70162990 ice maker leaking into storage tray

Please confirm you have given the complete model number.

If the icemaker has a bail wire to control how much ice is in the bin, there is a fill switch inside the front cover of the ice maker which allows you to increase or decrease the amount of fill.

You may also have a cracked or corroded ice mold. Check by filling the icemaker with water manually, and watching to see if it drips once the initial overfill stops dripping. This would also be indicated by the ice cubes being smaller than usual.
