How to Reset the Ice Maker on a GE Side by Side Refrigerator

Occasionally, the ice maker of the GE side-by-side refrigerator will get out of cycle and will not produce ice cubes properly. When this happens, the system can be reset and put back into the right cycle. Resetting the ice maker is a fairly simple job and can be done in just a few minutes. You can reset the ice maker yourself and save the time and expense of having to call a professional to come out and reset the ice maker for you.

Step 1

Locate the shut-off switch on the front of the GE refrigerator ice maker and turn the switch off, leaving it off for at least 30 seconds.

Step 2

Turn the switch back on and locate the feeler arm on the ice maker. The feeler arm is a thick wire that looks like a coat hanger and shuts off the ice maker when it comes in contact with the ice.

Step 3

Push the feeler arm up three times quickly to reset the ice maker.

Step 4

Verify that the ice maker completes a cycle of running water into the ice-making mechanism and dumping the ice into the bin.
