Refrigerators - Icemaker Not Producing Ice
If your icemaker is not producing any ice, there a a few things you can check.Ice production is dependent upon the temperature of the refrigerator. The refrigerator and icemaker must be at proper temperature.
The recommended fresh food temperature is 37 degrees F; the freezer temperature is 0 degrees F.
The icemaker must reach 16 degrees F before a cycle will begin.
If the temperature in the freezer is too warm, ice cubes will take longer to form or may not form at all. Try adjusting the freezer temperature.
A low food load in the freezer can affect the production of ice. More food in the freezer allows temperatures to remain more stable.
A clogged water filter can restrict water flow to the icemaker.
Filters should be changed every 6 months. If your refrigerator has a water filter, try replacing your water filter. Purchase a GE Appliance part online.
If there is new construction in your area, there can be more sediment entering the water system. This extra sediment can clog your filters more frequently than the recommended 6 months.
If the rake that ejects the cubes is stuck, the icemaker cannot complete its cycle.
Check for ice that may be in the way. Use caution: the icemaker mold may be hot. See also Refrigerators - Icemaker Cubes Won't Drop From Mold.
