GE Arctica Side-by-Side Ice Maker Problems

8 posts in this topic

Model Number: PSS25NGMB 

 

My icemaker had some ice buildup between the bin and the actual unit. It was preventing the paddle arm from functioning. I got the ice out, but it is not making ice now. The green light is on. I also tried to reset it by turning it on and off and pushing the paddle 3 times. It sounded like it might be trying, but nothing happened in the end. Any ideas on what my problem might be. I was going to give it around 24hrs to settle and see what happens. I will be home in a bit to check on it, but I am pretty sure nothing is happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Feel inside the icemaker mold for ice.  If no ice is present, check the fill tube and cup for ice restriction.  Haven't seen many mold leaks on the GE icemaker so I suspect a water inlet issue responsible for the ice between the icemaker and bin.  Also inspect inlet valve and tubing for leaks.

I have seen numerous leaks in GE ice makers between the mold and control head.  Here's one:

Yep.  If it looks like that then the molds' the culprit.  I guess most GE icemakers I come across just die before the mold gets a chance to leak.

Nothing in the mold and their is plenty of water coming out of the water tube.  As far as I can tell there is no blockage in the water line to the ice tray.  Mine looked the pic above but the ice had accumulated to the point that it would not allow the paddle to move back and forth.  The mold may very well be leaking, but would that cause the machine not to work at all??  I guess I could pour some ice into the tray and check for it leaking??  Thanks for the replies!

It's possible that the leaking mold jammed the paddle and the motor went bad, either way though, it's leaking so you just replace the entire ice maker.

Ok.  Are we just talking about replacing the ice maker assembly listed above??
