GE Profile Model PSS26LGSC Ice maker not working


Did the ice buildup appear to resemble the water overfilling the top of the ice maker? The only thing that I believe that may work is removing the ice maker, clean the excess ice buildup.dry and reinstall the ice maker and see it works. If the ice is above the normal level the ice can cause the motor that pushes the ice out of its slots to strain more than the gears or motor can handle stripping the gear or damaging the motor beyond repair, When harvest takes place the first thing that happens is a heater below the ice maker warms the cubes a little just enough to allow them to slide out of their slots and fall into the ice bin. The ice make for your model does not have replaceable parts and if bad or damaged it is less expensive and time consuming to by a new ice maker. If the water fills above the top of the ice maker it is usually the fault of the water control valve not closing all the way once it fills the ice maker after each harvest. Did water refill the ice maker when you cleaned it? Did the water overfill after you cleaned out the ice maker? What I am asking is water over filling ice maker again after you cleaned out the excess ice? If the water continues to flow from the WR57X10032 Water Inlet Valve

most likely the recirculating pump is jammed or has failed... ive been in service industry for 18 years and actually have a kitchen aid stainless steel ice machine myself.... if you get into unit and remove the resorvoir and white plastic shield around pump which is located on right side normally.. then there is 3 1/4 inch screws to remove from the pump and the water line usually attached on side of pump plate just unsnap... unplug the molex plug and pull out... you can check impellar for scaling and or build up turn with hand.. if you think you free it up clean real well and test with a power cord while out. you will have to rig something to the molex plug and plug into a 110 outlet and test... if it is bad get you a new one and replace.... this is a common problem ...good luck to you

ICEU220HA1 ice machine is half full of water - water fills up through drain hole in the tub when cleaning/purging pump


You have a restriction in the drain line beyond the ice machine and the water is backing up into the unit. You can try some Drain-o or snake the drain.

Kitchen aid ice maker water overflow issue


it's gonna be either the water valve or the gear shaft in the ice maker. replacement ice maker $130.00 water valve $40.00. gear only comes in with module $90.00. low water pressure from plugged water filter can cause this or if a reverse osmosis system is hooked to it. 40 pounds or more is reccomened for the valve to work properly

Ice maker quit working


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Sounds like you need to defrost.

if you can move everything out unplug it ,turn it off w/ doors open,you can put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes.After its completely defrosted Only turn it up to 4 or 5. Good luck.

Drain pan underneath fridge is filling on a daily basis


The system is designed to evaporate that water using the warmth of the compressor.. is your compressor warm ? (the drip tray sits on top of it) I see that model has an Ic e maker... to check that the ice maker refill is not running on too long, switch off the ice maker, by lifting the wire arm that checks the level of the ice in the storage bucket.. leave it turned off for a day or two.. empty the drain pan, and check it again after 24 hours.. but if the ice is already full, the water problem may APPEAR to be resolved already, but will return when the level drops and the ice production begins again.
If it is just condensate, then the drain pan should be able to contain the amount it produces, but 3-days straight, would indicate to me, that is not that... if your water pressure is good, it may be that the ice tray filler solenoid is being held open a fraction too long (maybe a second or so) and as the fridge is new, it will be making lots of ice to fill the container up,... so lots of small overfills.. mounting up to a full drain pan. Under normal use,.. other than parties and festive nights, when you use a lot, the water should evaporate faster than it is produced, but it shouldn't be happening at all.. if it is that, then turn the tap at the back of the fridge to where the cold water dispenser slows down slightly.. that should be enough to prevent it continuing.. IF that's the problem.

Overflowing drip pan under the fridge


for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely
