SOURCE: Ice Maker No Longer Works - Water Works fine

Not sure if this will work for you - I had a similar problem with a Kenmore fridge. I removed the ice tray and found a piece of ice stuck where the ice is made and dropped into the tray. Once I clear this obstruction, the ice maker worked again. Also, check for the mechanism that indicates that the ice tray is full. This may be jammed or malfunctionin.

This sounds like the float mechanism has gone bad. Remove it and have a look. It may be the float or the switch on it that is bad. There is also a solenoid valve. Parts kits are available. Shut off the water first!

SOURCE: GE Refrigerator GSS201EPWW is making a loud noise

This is the fan motor making noise but the fan motor is probably ok. The main board supplies voltage to the motor and can cause it to make strange noises.

We have a GE Side by Side Profile refrigerator and the freezer, at it's highest setting, can't keep ice cream frozen and the ice maker only puts out about 8-10 dumps in a 24 hour period. The model is...


Sounds like your coils are dirty which will cause inadequate cooling due to reduced heat exchange at the coils. Also check to make sure fan is running (next to compressor and should be running when compressor runs). The fact that your ice maker makes ice at all suggests that compressor runs, therefor no freon problems. Problem should be easily fixed with correct diagnosis. Hope this helps.
