How do I test the ice maker in my fridge?

If the dispenser is not dispensing ice then please check the ice maker. Follow the instructions below to check the ice maker: 

1 First locate the ice maker in your freezer and then press and hold the Test button for 3 seconds located on the side of the ice maker. You will hear a response tone at the press of the button.
2 You will hear another tone shortly if the ice maker is functional.

Please note:


●    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.

●    For RSG models (example 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 releases ice.

●   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.
