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.
Hi, i have a ge profile and need to replace the ice maker assy ( wr30x10097 part #ap4321616)
How do I go about this? Is there any screws holding it in place or is it just pull the tab down at the front then uncap the wiring?
Answer Hello Dave,
The icemaker for this unit will be removed by pushing down on the tab and pulling forward to release. There is a panel on the lower left side that you have to remove in order to unplug the icemaker to remove.
No ice production. Good water pressure on door dispenser. No problem with cooling in freezer or fridg. Maintains -2 and 38 degrees. I was told problem is probably a fan in the freezer section. Is there a test procedure for this fan? Are replacement instructions available for this fan?
Thanks for any suggestions
Answer Hi. Make sure the fill tube is not back filled with ice and blocking the water fill. If so then replace the water valve part # WR57X10082. Remove the fill tube part # WR02X12750. Clear the ice with warm sink water and dry the fill tube. Make sure the ice maker part # WR30X10097 is connected tightly. Reset the ice paddle ON/Off. The ice maker fan is part # WR60X10255 if it is not turning. The blade is part # WR60X10264. Thank You.
