GE Refrigerator

My GE refrigerator stopped making ice in my 2013 Anthem. Any suggestions as to what my problem might be? TIA

water valve, motor drive for ice cube trays, bad switch to stop making ice if the basket is full. etc. etc.

I'd suggest calling a GE refrigerator repairman and have him/her come and take a look at your icemaker.

I have a VERY EXPENSIVE and VERY LARGE "just-freezer" and "just-refrigerator" in the S&B that I have had to replace the ice maker 2 or 3 times over the 15 years we have owned this unit..... ice maker problems are common and usually fairly easily fixed by replacing the whole icemaker mechanism.

Most successful thing I have found is to Google your problem with model number. It will take you to sites that have input from appliance repair guys sharing ideas. Some have even posted youtube video on how to troubleshoot and fix. YouTube is another good source. Me, I follow one of the troubleshooting videos and normally replace the entire ice maker.

Look and see if the water inlet port at the back is frozen shut. Mine does this about every 6 weeks.
I take a hair dryer and blast hot air at it for about 15 min.

Good luck

More than likely the ice maker needs to be replaced. It's a common failure item in refrigerators and I've had to replace mine twice.

I had a fridge (not in my motorhome) a few years ago that had an ice maker quit.

The problem ended up being the valve at the bottom of the fridge that lets water into the ice freezing tray. This valve is only open a few seconds when water is called for to make ice. This valve was controlled from the ice maker but located near the back of the fridge at the bottom.

I did exactly what Chuck said in post 3. After a little googling I found instructions on how to run the ice maker through its short cycle to figure out what was wrong. That was done by shorting a couple of pins on the ice maker with a wire. Then it was just a matter of buying the right part and swapping it out after it became clear what was happening.

Start with your symptoms. Does not make ice and ice freezing tray is empty? Does not push the ice out of the freezing tray? Heater does not engage to let the ice unstick from freezing tray? Etc....

Good Luck.

In our 2014 Anthem, that also has a GE refrigerator, we had the same issue. After replacing the filter inside the refrigerator, all worked fine.
