Default Ice freezes in bucket
Model Number: GSS25QCMDWW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The ice in the ice bucket keeps freezing up. The icemaker was leaking water into the bucket so it was replaced. This caused the auger motor to burn out so it was replaced.
Then the motor burned out again. It looked like the flap in the dispenser (for crushed ice) was jamming so the bucket was replaced with a new motor. Ice is still freezing in the bucket and making the motor fail.
I am wondering if their is a defrost problem or temperature control problem.

What do you think is the solution?

You need to replace the motherboard Part# WR55X10942. When you replace it, if you notice a burn mark on the two resistors, you'll need to replace the evaporator fan motor also. Part# WR60X10074

Thanks Rick, I looked at the board and tested the thermistors. There were no burns on the board so I'll try a board. Thanks for your help.

Before replacing the board, check for a leaking water solenoid in the back.
