Q:

Ice maker issues double filling with water

A:

It can be both irritating and sometimes costly when your ice maker continues to overflow and freeze over. I did some research and provided a link to a similar question and answer on our site. I hope this will give you a better idea on the next step to take until the Expert responds to your question in more detail within 24 to 48 hours.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the icemaker overfilling. If the icemaker is cycling two times causing the overflow, the icemaker # WR30X10093 will need to be replaced. If it does not cycle twice and overflows, first try adjusting (reducing) the water fill to the icemaker. Pull the front cover off of the icemaker and you will see a screw with a plus and minus on it (see image). Turn the screw one full turn toward the minus side and see if it stops the overflowing. If it still overflows, the water valve # WR57X10012 will need to be replaced. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Q:

Do I need to replace my ice dispenser bucket since the new replacement ice maker sits lower?

A:

This replacement ice maker is designed to replace most newer GE built refrigerators but not all. The original part# of the ice maker was WR30X0290 and below is the list that the new ice maker replaces, and your original ice maker part number is not listed.

The WR30X10093 ice maker replaces part numbers:

WR30X10014, WR30X0282, WR30X0259, WR30X0238, WR30X0298, WR30X0241, WR30X0318, WR30X0203, WR30X0283, WR30X0289, & WR30X10061.

There is not a new ice bucket for you model refrigerator that would fit under the new ice maker. Your ice bucket would have to be modified to fit under the replacement ice maker.

If the ice maker only needs to be elevated just a little bit in order to clear, could you put a flat washer between the head of the mounting screw and the bracket to hold the ice maker at the needed elevation? This way the ice maker can be adjusted up or down and the flat washer will hold it in position once the screw is tightened. Before you install the two mounting screws, slip a flat washer over the threads and then mount the ice maker but leave the screws loose. Once you have the ice maker installed, slide the ice maker up and tighten the mounting screws. This may allow enough clearance for the ice bucket to fit under the new ice maker. The only other solution is to put some other type of bucket or container under the ice maker, but you would not be able to use the ice dispenser.

You may even consider calling GE to see if they have a solution to your problem. PH# 1-800-386-1215
