I guess it hasn't been that long since I have had to do something with this fridge. I came back to this thread for a trip down memory lane. I had to work on the GE again recently. The ice chute weight was rusted up again. I cleaned it again. Also, one day I was getting ice and some white plastic chunks came out with the ice. Since then, when you get ice you really get ice. I mean it just fills your glass in 1 second. This is good if you like it icy. I don't like ice that much. Now I just skip the ice a lot of the time.
