Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

Refrigerator: GE model GT22KCPCRCC New ice maker: GE model WR30X10093 Problem: with old ice maker installed, ice tray was over filling with water causing ice blocks in ice bucket, freezer and into the refrigerator. Replace the ice maker, but problem has not gone away. I understand there is a water valve in the back of the refrigerator that may be malfunctioning, not cutting off water flow when the ice tray is full. Could that be the problem? If so, what part do I need? If not, where else can I troubleshoot?

Hello,

What your describing sounds to me like a classic case of the water valve sticking open, as you have stated and replacing it will resolve your problem.

The water will not stop flowing into the ice tray after it has filled.


Chances are that the dual water control valve on the ice maker side is defective and not shutting off all the way allowing water to slowly leak by and mess up the freezer with frozen water everywhere. The replacement part is=> WR57X10051 Water Inlet Valve

If the water is simply an extended over fill after ice maker refills that will be caused by the ice maker itself. WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly

GE TFX24E side by side refrigerator, ice maker won't fill with water.


Hi, I have a GE TFX24E refrigerator. The ice maker is not filling with water. I replaced teh water valve with no joy. If I pour a cup of water into the dispenser the ice maker will freeze and harvest the ice. Any ideas? Is there a replaceable water fill sensor?

I have a GE Profile fridge PSS25MGNAWW with an ice maker that is not working properly. The ice maker doesnt fill with water. If I turn the ice maker off then back on it will squirt water in for about...


HI this is just a test the icemaker runs when you first turn it on, its not suppose to fill up the tray, it will fill it when the icemaker reaches the correct temperature, if its not cold enough in the freezer it wont kick on, if its been sitting for several hours and still wont fill or make ice, you need a new icemaker. The new icemaker part # is WR30X10093

Ice maker not making ice


IF ice is in the cub slots and will not drop then the ice maker is at fault. If slots are dry fill with tap water and let freeze and if they drop and the water does not refill the tray then the dual water controil valve part=> WR57X10032 Dual Water Control Valve
Ice maker being electronic best to just get another if that's the problem=> WR30X10093

Gss20I eph ice maker ?? If I turn the switch of


I am almost sure the model ice maker for your refrigerator is Click Here=> WR30X10093 and the model number for your refrigerator is GSS20IEPHWW or SS for Stainless. It sounds as if a bad connection on the ice fill arm. The truth is they are electronic and made in China along with most of the parts on your GE. I replaced mine that was the mechanical type with this same model number WR30X10093 and the mechanical lasted 15 years. If you manually can make it work one time and fills properly but after one cycle yet turns itself off my focus is on the ice maker. If you want to check OHM's to the dual water control valves they should both be about the same. Applying 120 volts to each side of the coils being water dispenser side and ice maker side will or should open them. But you just said that moving the arm that it will fill one time so I am back to the ice maker again. If water control valve for ice maker side did not work you would not be able to do that.

I have a ge sig=de by side refrigerator and it has


Your model came with an electronic ice maker. If trays are empty tour on and fill with tap water. After it freezes if it cycles and dumps but does not refill with water the the problem will be the side of the water control valve on rear of the refrigerator that controls the water to ice maker. If the water freezes and does nothing then you may need to shop around for a new ice maker. Part number is WR30X10093 for the Ice Maker and WR57X10032 for the Water Control Valve. Let me know what you find or ask questions, Thanks, Sea Breeze
