    Default GE Icemaker not dispensing ice.

    Hi,

    I have a GE fridge Model #GSS22JEMDWW. The other day the ice maker stopped dispensing ice. It makes ice fine and dispenses water as well. However, when I tried to turn the arm/motor, it will not turn. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Most likely frozen up, known problems with this on GE....try removing the auger motor and thawing it to see if it will then run...there are boot kits to install over the motors to prevent this or just put it into a plastic zip lock bag with the shaft poking thru a hole in the front...

    Thanks,

    Your auger motor may be frozen, use a hair dryer on it and see if it starts turning again.

    Here's the auger motor for your model you can order, if still won't turn after your thaw it out:
    Manufacturer part number WR60X10258 is RepairClinic item number 1394066


    The best, if not easiest way to access the auger motor is pull it out. It's just four screws, two on each side of the fork assembly. The white plate and auger motor will come out together. There is a quick disconnect for the wires (Pulls apart).

    Let us know how it goes.
