I have a GE Profile model #PFSS6PKWBSS, serial #ARO71260 refrigerator. The ice maker doesn’t work. It made a couple batches of smallish ice cubes a few days ago, but now it has quit altogether. I used to hear the water run as it was refilling the tray, but now nothing. I still hear it thumping as if it is attempting to eject ice, but no ice. I replaced the filter, nothing. I removed the filter and replaced it with the bypass plug, no difference. There is plenty of water pressure, but no ice. The amount of water collected in the flow test was 24 ounces in 20 seconds. The unit isn’t that old.
ANSWER Hi James. Do you hear the freezer fans working ? You need to make sure the lt. side fan is working up to normal speed. It pushes the freezer air up into the ice maker housing and cooling the inside of the housing to produce ice. The feeler arm on this model stays up. It turns off and on through the unit, not the arm. The temperature inside the freezer determines the amount of ice being produced. If the unit is not operating properly, you may need to replace the ice maker WR30X10097.Freezer temperature needs to be no colder then 0° or it will bind up parts. Thank You.
