How do I test the ice maker on my fridge?

Last Update date : 2017.09.15

For RF** Models (e.g., SRF752DSS,SRF579DIS)

 Make sure the ice maker is switched On.

●  A newly installed refrigerator may need up to 24 hours to cool and for ice production to begin.

●  The reset button is on the side of the ice maker. Press and hold the test button for 8 seconds. The ice maker should start to produce ice within 24 hrs.

The illustration below shows the location of the test button. Do not remove the ice maker. Once the reset button is pressed, it will take 5 minutes to complete the test cycle.


For RSG** Models (e.g., SRS702GDHSS, SRS684GDHB, SRS684GDHSS)

Underneath the front of the icemaker assembly is a small button. If you press and hold this button for three seconds, the icemaker should rotate the ice tray and dump its contents. 


●  If the doors were removed for installation purposes, the wiring on the top of the freezer door hinge may not be properly connected, please refer to your owner’s manual.

●  Do not keep pressing on the test button for RF* and RSG* models, this may cause ice tray overfills and ice jamming in the tray.
