• Make sure the ice maker is in the on position.
• A newly installed refrigerator may need up to 24 hrs 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 eight 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.


※Note: If your ice maker is not producing ice after waiting 24 hours, refer to the “No ice” section.

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


(Be sure to place a pan or other container below the ice tray to catch whatever ice and water is ejected.)
