The ice maker door of our GE Profile Refrigerator opens only about one inch. It seems to be stuck. How do I gain access to the interior?

It's frozen shut probably due to a bad icemaker seal or faulty inlet valve. Thawing the ice is the only way to remove it without damage. Once removed, follow the ice. Did it start forming at the bottom of the ice maker or above the icemaker at the fill tube? If ice is inside the fill tube replace the water inlet valve. If ice formed under the ice maker replace the icemaker. I usually replace both parts since they are water related and work together. No one likes a flooded kitchen.

If your model has the icemaker located on the same door with the ice and water dispenser, check the ice dispenser. Does it dispense ice? If it doesn't, look up the ice shoot to see if the flapper is opening. The flapper might not be shutting properly and this will allow air in causing a huge block of ice to form inside the dispenser and ice bin. Thaw it carefully. I use a steamer verses a blow dryer. Less chance of damaging any plastic parts or gaskets. I focus the steam on the lower part of the ice bin and up the dispenser shoot until I can pull it free. All the ice in the shoot and bin needs to be removed. The flapper has several parts that usually come all together , depending on your model. Ask for an Ice Door Kit.

Thank you thank you so much for this! I shoved my steamer up the ice shoot for a while. The latch holding the door to the ice maker had ice around it, freezing it shut. Once it thawed, I was able to open the latch and melt the rest of the ice. I dried it thoroughly before closing everything up to make more ice!

One thing it could be is that there is some sort of latch preventing it from opening. Look around the top and edges for an object stopping it from opening. You can also consult your manual on how to open it up or remove it completely so it can thaw out if it's frozen shut. But first, you should look for some latch or an object it gets stuck on.

Hope this helps and good luck fixing!

Just did a repair on a GE Profile that was growing huge amounts of ice. The flap where ice is dispensed was stuck open. I removed the touch pad control on the freezer door which revealed 4 screws. I removed these and when this unit came out the problem was obvious: the ice door solenoid was completely rusted and unable to move. Although a replacement was $35 I opted to remove the rusty unit, clean it thoroughly, paint it to inhibit future rust and reinstall. You can test the solenoid after installing it again before covering it up with the other parts: plug the refrigerator in and manually push the lever that is normally pushed by the glass you are filling.

Scotty Lennon, I need a model number to be able to give you accurate information. I will advise not to try to force it open. If you try to thaw it with a blow dryer, you can easily melt plastic parts including the liner. The liner isn’t easy, and usually impossible to repair. Look at the dispenser flap in the ice shoot, is it sealing shut? If you have a samsung with the ice room top left of fridge, you want to be very careful. There is a defrost code to enter for some models. Any ice or frost is due to outside air leaking into the unit.

I was told by GE it's a humidity problem. We don't have much of that in southern California.

If the ice maker flap is open the ice maker will simply not work. Plain and simple. The flap for ice reservoir has to be shut. Give it a good slam( not too hard because you don’t obviously want to break it).
