My GE Profile refrigerator is about 6 years old and has never made more that about 4 glass-fulls of ice (about half the bucket) and is rather slow in making ice. What is it that limits the ice quantity in the bucket and is there something I can adjust so that there's more ice?
ANSWER Gus, " Under normal operating conditions, the icemaker is capable of producing approximately 100-130 cubes (approximately 4.3 pounds of ice) in a 24-hour period. The rate of ice production depends on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door/drawer openings, and other use conditions". The fill cycle and the incoming water temperature and pressure also affect the ice production. Make sure that the refrigerator water supply is not attached to a "RO" (reverse osmosis) filter system, and that there is at least 32 PSI water pressure at the fill valve connection on the back of the refrigerator. It sounds like you have poor water flow/pressure to the fill valve and it takes several fill cycles to produce a proper sized cubes and cycle the ice maker.
