if your fill tube is frozen it may be split, if you have ice in the fill tube, replace fill tube, how old is your fridge?If your fridge is approx 6 years or older and has worked fine up until now ,you do not need a fill tube heater kit , you require a modual for the ice maker .. make sure when you replace the modual you unplug the fridge . If you do not have a kit to pre advance the ice maker you should have ice by the next day (less than that but for sure next day)

Good Luck

#224155 GSS23WSTASS GE SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR freezer keeps icing up

Did you do a visual inspection of the radiant glass heater? if burned out replace heater and defrost limit switch. the heater is easy accessed once the front panel is off ,2 philips screws . remember when replacing a glass heater do not touch the glass.. Sometimes to technical can leed you astray.

simple visual can lead you in the right direction, if the hearter and dts ok then futher investigation is required and with this fridge a steamer is higly recommended ,make sure all ice and frost are completly removed.. Clean Condenser as well..

Good luck! :thumbsup:

with all the plastics in refrigerators now ,suggest using a portable steamer for defrosting or removing ice . they are cheaper than replacing a melted fridge linner :samurai:

first ,if your adjustment screw does not move ,start by replacing the pressure control.. next, you can not properly adjust a pressure control without hooking up your gauges,you are guessing and hoping the indicators are right.. don't play with something that is broken it will drive you nuts.

Now with a new control and gauges hooked up ,I would setup at 38 cutin 28 cutout -10deg dif now depending how often fridge is open you might have to go a little lower on cutout.

good luck ! remember " A Problem is just a Solution waiting to Happen "
