Where can I get parts shown in the exploded view in this manual? I need the part indicated by the red arrow on page 8.

 

I don't want to spend $145 for a whole unit when I only need a $2 part.

Thanks,

 

Dave

Good luck finding individual parts for a GE ice maker. I've always replaced the whole assembly. Maybe you can find another one to scrap it out of. I really don't think GE even sells individual parts for their ice makers.

The piece that broke is an axle connecting the bar that touches the ice when the bin is full to a magnet which is sensed by the control board. Another arm on this axle rides along the outside of the axle between the motor and the ice ejector.  When ice is being ejected, this arm retracts the ice sensor bar so it can check the ice height after the ice ejects. This second arm had either worn down or snapped off preventing retraction of the sensor bar and halting ice production.

 

I cut this arm about 3/8 of an inch from the end to provide a flat surface on the end of the arm.  I drilled a 5/32" hole into the end of the arm. I inserted a #2 screw (with two nuts to hold it's position) into the hole and left it stick out far enough that it would contact the motor axle so the bar would retract when the ice was ejected.

 

I  put everything back together and we have regular ice production again. Cost $4.53 for the bag of #2 screws and nuts.TIOD376798095.png

That's pretty cool. To be honest I have never taken one of those apart because I never had time on the job at Sears. Plus Sears always sent the old ones out to be rebuilt. Thanks for showing that fix. It may be helpful for someone in the future, but I'm not sure if many would do it in thw field. Especially if they warranty their repairs. Let us know how it holds up down the road.

GE gotta luv 'em. Provide us with this very good tech manual for the ice maker. Really nice blow up breaking down every part on the friggin thing, what's missing? wait for it..... no individual components are available to make repairs to the IM.LOL. My experiences are usually just the opposite I can find the parts but was always unable to get technical advice to understand what the hell I was doing. Of course that is before I discovered "The Site". Because of the help of you guys Now I am an Appliance Repair God. Armed with information to get it done right.
