Ice maker shut off arm
« on: February 21, 2017, 09:21:17 AM »
I have a g e gsh25jsxn ss , the ice bucket is filling up with way too much ice. It seems like the shut off arm is not sensing how much ice is in the bucket, it should not be filled where you can not get the bucket out of freezer. I have to cut off ice maker, use ice until i can move drewer. Can anyone give me some help. Thanks cusadmin.

If you have the original ice maker it will have this arm.Make sure the spring in the attachment is in the holes correctly.
This ice maker if original to when you bought this refrigerator has been change to a new style.Most of the time with ice makers just replace it. Here is the original ice maker manual if you want to read it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-i5KqMA2RZwWG9taDJhOW1CR3c/view?usp=sharing

Many of the GE ice-makers have a flat paddle which often doesn't get pushed back and then the ice-maker doesn't stop. They have a replacement paddle that has a curve to it. I have the part number at work.
