GE Profile Ice Maker Repair
Ice makers are professional refrigeration equipment designed to automatically make food ice. This equipment can break down. Repairing ice makers should start with figuring out the causes. That’s why we recommend that you contact the experts at Appliance Service Center right away. Repairing complex equipment by your own efforts rarely leads to a positive result. We provide quality GE Profile Ice Maker Repair in San Diego County.
Let’s look at typical ice maker breakdowns!
The drain hose or drainage system is clogged
The principle of how the drain hose in an ice maker is connected and works is similar to a washing machine, but clogs occur much more often. At the same time, you may notice water and non-freezing cubes inside the chamber.
Problems with the programmer, valve, and thermostat
If ice is freezing in chunks on the evaporator. The first thing to do is to turn off the unit and reset it. Then determine the cause of the problem (programmer, evaporator thermostat, solenoid valve) and do GE Profile Ice Maker Repair and Service.
Plugged nozzles or defective pumps (no water coming out)
Typical signs of malfunctions are incorrectly shaped ice or incomplete filling of the molds. The pump is used to force water into the compartment, which comes through the nozzles. If the water is not coming, then there is a blockage, which can be solved by the GE Profile Ice Maker Repairs wizard.
Opaque cubes are produced
This happens when using hard water, which contains a lot of lime and calcium. If your area has a large number of impurities, be sure to install a purification filter. Our GE Profile Ice Maker Repair and Service technician can help you with the installation.
Faulty thermostat or switch
If the ice maker will not turn on or turn off after 15 minutes of operation, the hopper thermostat may be defective. No ice will be produced, or the pressure switch will trip in an emergency mode. The hopper thermostat is used to control the ice production. As soon as the temperature in the chamber reaches a certain point, the unit is disconnected from the mains.
The evaporator does not freeze
Pressure is higher than normal during suction. Water or solenoid valves may be open. Check and replace elements.
Evaporator is not freezing properly
Probably the pressure is lower than the norm. This happens because of capillary blockage or refrigerant leakage. The blockage must be found and repaired, and the condition of the filter-drier must be checked. Eliminate the leak and charge the system with refrigerant. GE Profile Ice Maker Repair specialists will perform the service.
Ice is produced longer than usual
If the cycle lasts longer than half an hour, half of the cubes are irregularly shaped, which means that the radiator is clogged (relevant for air-cooled generators). The radiator needs to be cleaned.
No water in the chamber, no ice
Even if cubes are formed, they are not the right shape. Water is not enough for complete filling of the molds.
Unstable operation of the pump
Water flows into the chamber intermittently and unstably. Manifold, filter, and nozzles need to be cleaned. Diagnose the pump malfunction, install a new part if necessary. Our GE Profile Ice Maker Repairs and Services will perform these jobs.
Too much water in the chamber
The ice mold may not close from too many cubes. This indicates a failure in the thermostat that controls the amount of ice in the compartment. Install the faulty part and run a test check.
Water under the cabinet
A leak has occurred in the solenoid valve. The leak must be repaired, or the part must be replaced.
The body is shaking
If the ice maker shocks when touched, the connection has been made without grounding. Install a grounded, moisture-proof outlet and check the power cord and extension cord.
Noisy machine operation
When you hear noise and whistling while the generator is running, the condenser micromotor is probably worn out. It is not recommended to lubricate and repair it is better to replace it right away by calling our GE Profile Ice Maker Repair service.
