Customer Question
Our Ge side by...

Our Ge side by side refrigerator is working great including dispensing water. The issue is that the ice cubes aren't being produced and the arm on the ice cube is down. any ideas?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model # is G5254743 and it may be 20 years old, we just bought this house and it worked a few months ago.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The icemaker has likely failed on the unit. The life on one is about 10 years typically. Do you have the complete model number off the tag on the unit. The G525 number is ***** it, the model will start with 3 to 4 letters and should be on a tag on the wall liner of the refrigerator section.
