GE Arctica making too much ice

3 posts in this topic

Bought this 3 years ago and it always made too much ice, forcing the shelf on top to move out of it's groove. Had a GE repair guy over recently to look at my dryer and mentioned the fridge. He said that GE knows of the problem and re-designed a part, but of course wanted bookoo money to repair. Does anyone know what this magical part is to limit the ice production and where to get it?

     This wondrous device, I have seen, in some of the newer GE refrigerators,  I Believe. You will love this spectacular upgrade,  make you one with the force It will.     

     It is a newer more modern more perfect feeler arm (that flat white thing that moves back and forth).  The new feeler arm is curved downward at its end thereby reaching further down into the ice bin stopping the manufacture of ice much sooner.

      If you endure and persevere and never give up  in your quest you may find the thing in which you seek.  Ask yourself you may "Why is a Jedi Master looking at the newer more modern more perfect GE refrigerators so soon after their warranties run out?"  The answer is quite simple, its because they suck.

I'd be interested in where you saw this improvement. I just called GE parts and they claim there is no redesign on the original part (even though the repair man claimed so). Also, the feeler arm looks to be part of the icemaker assembly (see attached part 820) - over $100 part. I would hope that only the plastic arm could be replaced for 1/10 the cost.

I'm curious if anyone else with this model has the same problem or any suggestions on how to solve it (besides buying a new fridge, of course).
