ice maker not working
Model TPX21P4SAWW GE PROFILEAnswer
I read your suggestions for "Electronia Style No Ice". I did get one cycle, but nothing further - green light is on steady, but did get flashing at one point.
There is fozen cubes in the tray.
If it is a dead icemaker - how difficult to put in yourself, and how much are they?
I have good water pressure in the house - and water is working in door.
My icemaketr is identical to your picture electronic Style No Ice
Sometimes the flashing means the icemaker is stuck and at times all you have to do is disconnect it for a few minutes, plug it back in and it will go back to work. If this doesn’t work then you will have to replace it icemaker. This is assuming that the temperature in the freezer is ok (around 0 degrees).
At some point this icemaker has been replaced because it had the old mechanical style icemaker originally. The only you get now is most likely going to be the mechanical style again because they have gone back to the mechanical style (I think for good but who knows).
It will be very easy to install and don’t let me scare you by saying I don’t know which style you will get because installation will be the same. The only difference will be the electronic ones will have an on and off electrical switch and the mechanical will either have a slide mechanical lever or a wire feeler arm to turn it on and off.
There will be a wire adapter that you will have to use and sometimes I use a wire tie to strap the wire in place (this may or may not be necessary). Then you install the fill cup, which is just the little plastic cup that attaches to the back of the icemaker. If the one on your old icemaker is different you can use it instead of the new one (only if necessary). Then it is just a matter of taking two screws out of the old icemaker and installing the new one right back into place. There will be installation instructions with the icemaker that will give you more details then I can if you need them but it is pretty straight forward.
Here is a link to where you can purchase your icemaker.
