Our company has been in business since 2001, for residential appliance repair. The experts at GE Ice Maker Repair and Service have over 20 years of experience.
The main common causes of ice maker breakdowns are
No water flows
This happens when the pump is malfunctioning, or the nozzles are clogged. You can understand it by the incomplete filling of the molds or the wrong form of ice. The pump performs the function of forcing the liquid into the compartment. It then flows through the nozzles. When the water does not come, it indicates a clog.
It must necessarily be removed. To do this, the water manifold is dismantled, the nozzles and filter are cleaned. The pump is also checked. Broken parts are to be replaced at the service center by GE Ice Maker Repairs.
Clogged sewer/drain hose
The principle of functioning and connection of the drain hose in the unit is almost similar to a washing machine. However, clogging occurs much more often. And you can see unfrozen cubes and liquid in the chamber. The cause of clogging is the ingress of foreign particles in the drain, the cooling of food and drinks in the unit, illiterate connection of the hose (below the required level).
Breaking the switch and thermostat
If the unit does not turn on, or if it shuts off, there may be a defect in the hopper thermostat. In addition, ice is not being made or the pressure switch will trip. It is the hopper thermostat that controls the ice production. When the desired temperature is reached, the unit will shut down. In the case of malfunctions, the regulators are inspected, the opening/closing of the shutoff valve is checked, the condenser, fan and solenoid valve are examined. Our technicians specializing in GE Ice Maker Repair and Service will replace it in no time.
Ice maker takes too long to create
If the cycle takes too long and the ice cubes are irregularly shaped, you can speak of a clogged radiator. This applies to air-cooled generators. It is necessary to clean the radiator urgently.
To do this, remove the service hatch, unscrew the screws, unfasten the panel fasteners, and remove it. The radiator is cleaned with a brush and air stream. The panel is then reinstalled. The technicians at GE Ice Maker Repair will fix all breakdowns quickly.
Thermostat, valve, and programmer malfunctions
If it is noticed that pieces of ice are freezing on the evaporator or the defrost cycle does not start, the unit must be turned off and restarted immediately.
There can be two possibilities here – bad frosting or no frosting of the evaporator. In the first case, the pressure is less than the normal value. This is due to a clogged capillary or freon leakage. You must find and remove clogging, check the condition of the dehumidifying filter. It is necessary to find the leak and refill the freon.
In the second case pressure is higher than normal in the suction process. Probably the solenoid valve or water valve is open. It is necessary to check and if necessary, replace parts. We have the experts at GE Ice Maker Repairs and Services, and they will replace the evaporator in your ice maker very quickly.
If this happens, it means that there is malfunction. You need to check the amount of liquid in the tank, ice mold filling. To avoid such problems, you should fill only with purified water. If you fill automatically, use a purified filter. Water in the tank changes every day. The tank is cleaned with a soda solution. If the flashing does not stop, you should call a GE Ice Maker Repair technician.
If any malfunctions occur, contact the Appliance Service Center immediately. Only there will help determine the exact cause of the problem and make the proper repairs. Once repaired, the ice maker will work for a long time to come. You can be sure that after GE Ice Maker Repair and Service, your appliance will work for as long as possible without even the tiniest breakdown.
