ge ice maker not working and part interchange???
« on: May 04, 2010, 09:35:37 PM »

have a kenmore/ge mfg. refrig. model 363.9524780.  replaced water valve due to ice maker not working/filling with water when ice maker cycled manually.  ice maker will now fill with water when cycled manually.  cubes freeze completely, but do not eject.  heater appears to work, as ice cubes melt some after a while, then refreeze, but never eject.  with freeze and thaw, ice maker gear does not cycle to my knowledge (marked with black marker).  assume bad t-state or weak motor (please tell me if i am wrong)???   original ice maker is a WR30X0259, which subs to a WR30X10093.  can a WR30X0283 ice maker from a im1 kit, or any included ice maker model from an im2, im3, im4, im4a, im5, im5ss, or im6, etc. be used to replace the WR30X0259 (need round outside plug with recessed square four prong plug or plug adapter included with kit).  have access to the im kits for a much cheaper price than the WR30X10093.  THANKS A MILLION FOR ANY HELP!  FYI - food in freezer is solid and refrig side good also.  have not checked temp, but believe OK.  note also frig. defrost timer ticks noisy, but believed to be functioning properly.  defrost heaters replaced a few years back due to one burnt.  not sure if related??? also, not sure how long ice maker has not worked - possibly around same time as heaters replaced or after.  could it have shorted water valve or icemaker?  relatives frig:)
