Unfortunately, it seems very common among our users that one day GE refrigerators just don’t make ice anymore. Here are a few simple steps to help you get back on track without having to call a mechanic.
- Some GE refrigerators have a test button on the control panel or on the icemaker itself that performs a series of tests and drops the ice into the icemaker. Try and see what happens.
- Then make sure nothing else has changed since he’s been on the ice. For example, no changes are required to the cooling water pipe, kitchen facilities, sink, etc. It is important that the water pressure in the water network is sufficient for the ice generator.
- Then consider replacing the water filter if you have not done so for a long time. Usually the filter is so clogged that the water filter does not get enough water pressure to fill the icebox.
- If not, you can simply replace the ice cream maker with this simple insertion kit for the ice cream maker. This seems to solve most problems with ice machines, which can be installed in about 15 minutes and cost about $60. It is much cheaper (and even easier) than having it repaired by a mechanic.
You can see an excellent video below that shows how easy it is to replace an ice cream maker.
Here are some comments from users who were satisfied with the replacement of the ice-cream maker
The ice machine stopped working after about 5-6 years. I ordered this ice machine and decided to do the installation myself. I’m over 50 and I’m not very strong. My old ice cream maker skipped something after 15 to 20 minutes. I couldn’t be happier.
My GE fridge hasn’t made ice cream in a while. I ordered one. The old ice machine got a little loose. After the installation I turned it on and he immediately started making ice cream. Honestly, I don’t know why I waited so long. It works great in my GE fridge.
After I made a few adjustments to the water level, the new ice generator even took over the original one. If you need to replace your current ice cream maker because it is defective, try it if it is a replacement part for your model.
