G.E. GE Ice Maker Won't Shut Off
« on: July 06, 2013, 10:13:23 AM »

My mother-in-law's GE Refrigerator model GSS25WTI CC ice maker keeps trying to make ice when full.  It has a plastic arm that gets stuck in the 1/2 way "out" position.  We can hear it making a buzzing noise about once a second, like it's trying to cycle.  Anyone seen this problem?  Seems like a bad design to me.  I don't see how the plastic arm could be counted on to reliably be pushed back by filling ice.

The repairman came over yesterday.  I think he used a hair dryer to soften the arm and bend it down a little, due to a poor design. Fixed, I guess. (I wasn't there.)
