Ge fridge was dispensing water fine, but after a long vacation we came back to no water coming out. Some ice did form around the flapper door and tube, but we got rid of that but still no water.
With the ice forming around the flapper door you will want to replace the flapper but also this would have caused the water line in the door to freeze. The only way to correct this would be to let it thaw out. Otherwise it would require the door to be replaced.
My stripper plate is broken. Do I really need this to make ice? Will it make ice without it?
Answer Hello Kirby,
The stripper is used for a proper harvest cycle. Without it, cubes would get caught back in the ice mold, causing overfill and icemaker jams. It is a necessary part.
My new ice maker is very slow making ice, is there any way to turn it up?
Answer Hello Carol,
You need to put a thermometer in the freezer compartment and adjust it to 0°F to 10°F, (Colder temperatures cause a long harvest time resulting in slower ice production). If the temperature is too high you may need to clean the condenser coils or check for an air leak around the doors or the ice dispense door. If the temperature is correct, there is most likely an issue internal to the icemaker causing a long cycle. I was unable to verify the correct part number for your unit since you provided a model number for a Whirlpool front load washer.
I have ge refrigerator. Ice maker stopped harvesting ice in molds. Part was wr30x10044. Replacement is wr30x10093. Ordered replacement and installed. Filled with water and froze, but would not harvest (like old one didn't). Thought could have had bad replacement, so ordered 2nd replacement wr30x10093. Installed. It filled with water and froze, but would not harvest. Moved harvest rake to cycle - went through one (not two) revolution, leaving ice on top of stripper. Then refilled with water and froze. Apparently, problem is not in water intake valve. Checked temperature and I am at 2 degrees F, so it is not temperature. Not sure what to do. The only things I can think of are the Dispenser Board on the front of the freezer door, and perhaps the Main Control Board. Just ordered the Dispenser Board to see if that works. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Greg. If the issue continues, it is the main board on the unit or the wiring. When the icemaker gets cold enough, it is suppose to cycle. If not, it leads to the main board.
