In Topic: GE SxS PSC25PSSCSS ice maker causing large ice formations

03 October 2014 - 02:33 PM

Sorry for the late reply, but I got it all fixed up.  It turned out to be a shorted defrost thermostat.  This also caused the heater to melt the plastic housing on either end of the glass tube. It still had continuity through the heater after I removed it.  However, it got so hot that I could not even remove the wires from the heater without cutting them off.  Every time it was going into defrost, the heater was staying on all the time.  The thermostat was never opening up to stop the defrost causing ice to melt and drip down and then freez causing the icicles in the freezer. 

I went ahead and replaced the thermistor while I was in there since it is such an inexpensive part.  It has been over a week now and everything is back to normal and good ice production. 

The people do not keep that much in their freezer, so there was no complaint of defrosted food.  I just assumed water leaking from the ice maker.  Lesson learned. 

Thanks for all the help.

Thanks for the manual.  

The defrost thermostat is fine.  I'll check the ice maker with that manual tomorrow.

Thanks for the reply. The icicles are coming from the ice maker, not the bin.  Is the defrost sensor you speak of in the ice maker itself?  This ice maker does have the toggle on / off switch.  

I am thinking it has to be something in the ice maker itself.  I'm going back out there tomorrow.  If you find the manual on the ice maker, that would be great.

Thanks

Sorry for the late reply.  After going back and making sure there was no ice in the air duct, I told the customer to let me know what the temp was the next day.  They called back and everything was working fine after 2 days of operation. I did not replace the evaporator fan motor, it seemed to be running fine.  Thanks for the help and suggestions.

No excessive frost in freezer and evap fan running strong. All gasket seals are good with no signs of air leaks. I'm going to tell customer to unplugg unit for 24 hrs to completely thaw out return line. Seems like a design flaw to me. Thanks for the responses.
