Default ge profile icemaker problem
Model Number: PSS26SGRA SS   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a GE Profile side by side refrigerator. I am having a problem with the auger in the icemaker. The motor works fine, but the auger gets stuck. I can't even turn it by hand. It appears that it is getting stuck on a piece of ice where it is supposed to be dispensed from. I'm confused, though, because isn't that what is supposed to crush the ice? If I clear out the ice the auger will turn but another piece of ice immediately gets stuck there. It does this whether I choose crushed or cubed ice. I have attached a picture of the part I am referring to.

Possible one or more blades are bad. You have to take the ice crusher apart and inspect all parts. The disassembly instructions are attached to the reply.

Our GE icemaker is doing the same thing. Did you resolve your problem with removing and replacing the blade(s)? If not, could you please inform me of how your issue was finally resolved?

I have not resolved the problem yet. My icemaker is not making ice at all now. I guess I'm just going to have to have the whole thing replaced.

Mine just started too. Won't crush or dispense ice..seems to stall out. Icemaker itself is cranking out ice as usual. Will take the thing apart this weekend but don't really know what bad blades look like. Will probably end up ordering the whole assembly. Will let you know if any luck with a repair.

Hey seems like these GE ice makers all have possible design Flaw. Mine doing same.Clean ice out from auger works fine until it jams again. My blades look ok. It works ok until it jams. I suspect Helix??? Can you tell me if this should rotate with the auger shaft. Mine just free wheels on shaft. It seems if helix was closer to crushing chamber, cube ice would be better metered into chamber.
