I have a Ge Profile side by side fridge. We often find the icecube tray with a frozen stream of ice coming off of the bottom onto the shelf just below. The ice cubes in the dispensor are either melted and then frozen or water leaked into the ice cube container and then froze. The ice cube maker was recently replaced by direction of GE rep at customer service and it did not fix the problem. Any ideas what it could be?
Hi Welcome to The Just Answer Appliance Category..My name is XXXXX XXXXX to working with you Today on your appliance repair problem..Your problem is most likely the water inlet valve...What happens is it is slowly trickling water out into the ice tray..The valve is not shutting off completely after it fills the ice tray...Very common problem...Replace the inlet valve...

Where is the inlet valve located and is it an easy replacement? I replaced the ice maker my self and am a mechanic of sorts, rebuilt cars, motors, and fixed my own appliances in the past. Richard
Then you should have no problem replacing the inlet valve...If you go to the back of the fridge...Follow the plastic waterline from the ice maker down to the bottom of fridge...It will connect directly to the water valve...Its just a matter of disconnecting the waterlines ...Then disconnecting the plastic power terminals....

Ok, unit looks to be light blue in color with water line going down from filter at top of fridge. one clear line going to water dispensor and a black plastic line going to ice cube maker at top of fridge on back side. Looks to be one hex screw holding it in place with the need to remove the 3 plastic lines I mentioned above. I gather it is an easy part to get from an appliance service center or can I get it ordered online and from whom.
