This one should be a "no-brainer" for all you appliance Guru's! 

The ice maker on my GE model TBX25PASJRWW refrigerator works sporadically.  At times it can fill up the tray in a day or two, however sometimes it stops making ice for no reason at all.  If I pick up the "on/off" bar and let it back down, the ice maker begins to work again (the ice breaker shaft rotates to push out the ice and re-start the cycle.) Other than this, there is no other problem with making ice.   Any ideas what is causing this sporadic operation?

Thanks!!!!!:cool:

Reinstall the on/off arm back correctly in the head of the ice maker if it is not in there right.   If that does not help you will need to take the ice maker head apart to see why the on/off arm is not tripping the on/off switch inside of the head itself.

Thanks PEGI, I'll take it apart tomorrow night and see if the arm is bent or not touching the switch.  Is there any adjustment on the microswitch to ensure that the arm positively engages the switch.

Thanks:D

Depends on if there is a metal lever on the switch that pushes on the button itself or not, if no lever might see if the button is sticking....
