My GE Ice Maker Is Clogged Up in the Door

Clogs in your GE model 23, 25 or 26 side-by-side refrigerator's ice maker are common when ice is not regularly removed from the storage bin, and these clogs affect the appliance's ability to dispense and produce new cubed or crush ice. Although the ice maker is easily removed, you can clear out clogs in the ice chute by breaking up or melting the clog. Once cleared, the appliance's ice maker replenishes the storage bin and creates up to 130 cubes within 24 hours.

Clear ice clogs from your GE ice maker without damaging the dispenser.

Step 1

Hold down "Lock Controls" on the control panel, located on the front left exterior of the appliance, for three seconds to disable the ice maker's dispenser. Push "On/Off" to turn off the ice and water dispenser.

Step 2

Open the freezer door and push "Off" on the power switch located on the front of the ice maker. Close the appliance's door once the ice maker is powered off.

Step 3

Push the handle end of a wooden spoon into the ice chute, located in the opening of the ice dispenser on the front of the freezer door.

Step 4

Jab the clogs in the ice chute to break up the ice. Remove fallen ice from the spill shelf.

Step 5

Pull off the spill shelf's grate and dry the area with a soft cleaning cloth. Place the grate back on the spill shelf and open the freezer door.

Step 6

Push "On" on the power switch located on the front of the ice maker. Close the refrigerator door and push "On/Off" to turn on the ice and water dispenser.

Step 7

Hold down "Lock Controls" on the control panel for three seconds to unlock the panel.
