    Default Ice Maker Drips When Filling

    Model Number: PSI23MGM
    Brand: GE
    Age: 6-10 years

    When filling, the ice maker drips just a little bit, but it is enough to form a pillar of ice that locks in the ice drawer. If I partially pull out the drawer after each cycle, then the ice pillar never gets thick enough to be a problem. But if I let it go through several cycles, then the pillar gets so thick that the ice drawer gets really stuck and I have to chip away the ice pillar with a table knife. I don't think overfilling is the problem because the drip starts when the filling starts.

    Hi,

    PSI23MGM is just a partial model#, we need the complete model#, click here to locate it.

    The problem may be the fill tube is not set properly in the fill cup, or your ice maker is cracked and leaking.

    The full model number is PSI23MGMAWW.

    Here are a couple of pictures of what happens. As you can see, the drip is probably not coming from the filler cup. Rather the drip is occurring on the far left. You can see the pillar of ice that built up overnight. The feeler arm catches some of the dripping, but most of it lands just below the feeler arm locking in the ice drawer.

    Any thoughts?

    Ok, I see now, its your ice maker itself thats leaking. You will need a new ice maker.

    Here's the ice maker assembly for your model you can order:
    Manufacturer part number WR30X10093 is RepairClinic item number 1399596
    WR30X10093

    Guaranteed to fix it or your money back.

    See the 2 screws in your photo above the ice maker on each side of the ice maker brackets, you loosen those 2 screws and the ice maker should come out, then there will be a electrical connector that just unsnaps to it.

    Thats it.

    My ice maker quit altogether, so I need to replace it. I am able to detach the machine from the freezer, but I can't figure out how to disconnect the power cord. What do I need to remove to get access to the cord? I have included a photo of the inside of the freezer. Thanks.

    You have to remove the auger motor panel just below the ice maker, see the 4 screws on each corner? Remove those and that auger motor panel pulls out and you will see the quick disconnect to your ice maker.
