We have a GE Profile refrigerator (PFCS1RKZJSS) that is not producing ice. I've replaced the icemaker just recently, waited over 48 hours and the water still won't freeze. The refrigerator and freezer settings have been set colder than the suggested settings and still the tray is sitting with just cold water.

I then moved my attention to the two vents at the top left of the refrigerator. The bottom vent is blowing cold air out, but the top vent is doing nothing. In fact, it seems to be warm to the touch and I had noticed that there is some yellowing around the vent. This is now leading me to believe that there could be an issue with the ice maker fan, as there is no cold air being blown from the freezer.

Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

PFCS1RKZJSS does not pull up as good, please recheck your model number. Take a photo of the model number tag.

Thanks, looks like that is the correct model number, unfortunately some Canadian models are not listed here in the USA, and this is one of them.

With a model number I can look up, I'm not able to assist you, sorry.

Ok, great!

Here's the ice maker fan motor for your model:
WR60X10330 Blower Fan Duct


Check for 12-14 Volts DC. What we are finding is, if there is ice on the wire connector for the fan motor it may have shorted the motherboard.

You can Do the voltage test from the motherboard, which is located in the back of the refrigerator.

Locate the J2 CONNECTOR on the motherboard and test between J2 Pin 7 to J2 Pin 8 (13.6 Volts DC)

Here's the motherboard for your model you can order:
WR55X11098 Board Asm, Main Control
