Question about GE Profile¿ Arctica® Energy Star® 25.5 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser, PSS26MSRSS

1 Answer

GE TPX24BR making ice intermittenly. I'm trying to fix this used GE side by side. When i got it it didn't have the line going from the solenoid to the ice maker. After replacing that I hooked it up outside and it worked. But since bringing it into the house, it no longer works. (BTW i also replaced the water valve solenoid.) If it's not the solenoid or the line what else could make it stop working? Dan

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
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
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
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 or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Their is a dual solenoid valve one for water and one for ice maker. Your ice make side is bad most likely.

The ice in my GE Side by Side Refrigerator smells, I changed the filter and reset it and that did not work.


The supply line may need to be changed. Do not use the metal or vinyl braided line. Use the plastic ice maker tubing and that should fix it.

GE TFX22ZR side by side. ice maker not making ice


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

GE side by side; model # TFX25JRYD Serial #


So the dispenser is getting water. Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

If the valves clicks but water doesn't get to ice maker the fill tube can be stopped up with ice.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.

Ice forming on the freezer floor for a GE profiled Side by side model # TPX24BR


GE refrigerators have a drain in the bottom at the rear of the freezer it may look like the drain hole is open, however you should pour some hot water into the drain hole and see if it drains. If it does not turn off the refrigerator and let it thaw. Try using compressed air to clear the drain and then see if it will drain by pouring hot water into the drain again

My GE side by side refrigerator in not dispensing ice or water


I had the same problem with my GE refrigerator. A 26.6 cu side by side as well. I replaced the main motherboard located behind a small panel on the mid to lower right side of the back and it fixed the problem. I used GE part WR55X10552.
