Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The shut-off lever for the ice maker operates very hard, it will not shut off the ice maker and ice cubes come out of the box and go all over the freezer.


Answers :

Hi, this is how to check the shut off arm\015\012An arm extends away from the ice maker over the ice cube bin. During each ice making cycle, the arm rises up and then drops back down after the new ice is dumped into the ice cube bin. As ice accumulates in the bin it prevents the arm from dropping back down. When the arm is high enough, the ice maker shuts off and no more ice is made until the ice level in the bin drops.\015\012
\015\012The ice maker can also be turned off manually by lifting the arm all the way up into a locked position.\015\012The arm is supported at one or both ends. One end extends into the back of the front support. If it is not securely in place, it could cause the ice maker to malfunction. Confirm that the arm is securely in place.\015\012
\015\012For proper operation, confirm that arm is in the lowered position and that nothing is blocking it from normal movement.\015\012
\015\012To test the shutoff function, lift the arm up into the manual shutoff position. Recheck the unit later to confirm that no ice is being made.\015\012
\015\012If unit continues making ice even when the shutoff arm is in the up (off) position, replace the control module.

Sound coming from freezer compartment is very very loud when motor cycles on. Pressing on the rectangular box at the upper center back of the freezer mutes the sound somewhat. We do not have an ice maker hooked up tho' we have the capablility to do this. The ice maker connection is a small square box to the left of the center rectangular box. Questions: 1. What is causing this horrendous sound which can be heard over the whole house and above the TV? When I press against the outside of the

Freezer fan does not come on . Thought that replacing the DC motor would "fix" the problem. It did not. The compressor works as the freezer gets cold, but the fan never works so the refrigerator side does not get cool. Have had a problem previously with ice maker freezing over. (Have had to shut off the icemaker and "blowdry" the frozen water from the icemaker). It may have been water or ice that got into the fan to have caused the problem? But as I stated before, I did replace the fan motor and

I have a GE refrigerator and it has an ice maker and water out let on the outside. It will make ice and it will dispurse water, but the flapper inside where the ice comes out will not go closed, therefor it lets air up to the ice box and it melts and drains down and also is creates ice and frost in the chamber comming down till it won't work. Is there any way to fix this flaper so it will shut tight?


Actually yes there is. The plastis that is molded onto the bezel that works as a hinge point for this flapper breaks. Instead of purchasing a new bezel(for a couple hundred) you can purchase a kit that for around $80 and you remove the front paneling ... Refrigerators

Ice maker isn't making the ice, but the water supply is working to make water? does not seem like the water is coming into the ice chamber it was frozen at the end of the spicet, so I took everything out of freezer and shut it off to defrost it, also using my steam cleaner. Then I'll turn back on to see if the ice machine works or not. The motor was replaced last yr. under the warranty but now it's expired, should'nt the motor still be working? it has been about 1 yr. of life of it.

Our Kitchen Aid Superba started making these loud grinding sounds...may be coming from the freezer side. Turned off ice maker and reduced temperature for the freezer side but still making those loud noises. Shut off freezer completely then when I put it on again, it immediately started making those sounds. Your advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks! Dia


Motor bearing on the evaporator fan is all I can think of. The noise could be produced by the fan blade hitting excessive ice buildup and that is a defrost problem. 99% of the time it ends up being a failed defrost heater. ... Refrigerators

There is a burnt smell emanating from my freezer. The ice maker isn't making more ice. My freezer had been left ajar and there was freezer burn on several items.

Noticed cold air in freezer during test. Shut off ice maker last night. Freezer now at -7 degrees, Fridge at 37 degrees. Can the ice maker cause the freezer and refer to warm up?


Yes, it sure can. The icemaker turns on a heater to warm the mold, allowing the ice cubes to be pushed out. If the icemaker does not finish it's cycle for any reason, the heater keeps adding more heat, which will affect the refrigerators performanc ... Refrigerators
