Hello Bruce;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are a lot of different ice makers. Why does your icemaker need to be reset? What is the issue?

Send me the model number of your refrigerator which is on the inside wall of your fresh food section.

The Refrigerator's ice maker makes ice, but will not eject the ice. Have tried to reset the ice maker but will not eject, any ideas?


The ice maker has heater that thaws the ice cubes a little before they are ejected. This keeps the from sticking to the form.

Icemaker will not restart


1 Lower the bail wire to turn on the ice maker, and remove the ice bin. Then, using a screwdriver if necessary, remove the ice maker, clean it thoroughly, and then reinstall it.
2If the problem persists,consider removing and replace the entire ice maker and valve. With this type of problem, you can have it repaired, but it's often wiser and less expensive in the long run to replace the unit entirely.

I have to press the reset button to get the ice maker to release the ice.


Hello Christine;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician, living in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
You have not provided a model number so I will address the basics of a ice maker. There are many different kinds.

Not many ice makers have reset buttons. If you have a ice maker with a red reset button in the front you probably have a plastic flex mold. Your ice maker like many others has a control module assembly at the front. This module is actually a computer with a circuit board and a motor. The module tells the ice maker solenoid valve to open and fill the mold with water and what volume of water. Then the temperature sensor tells the control module that the ice cubes are frozen. The module turns on the motor to harvest and flex the mold.

Under your ice maker mold has a white wire beneath it. This is the temperature sensor. Your temperature sensor has failed. This is an solid state part of your ice maker and not replaceable. The ice maker that you have is not repairable. Some ice makers are repairable, but not yours.

When you push the restart button you are forcing your ice maker motor to turn on and harvest the ice cubes.

Normally you should get 8-10 ice cube harvest within a 24 hour period.

My ice maker model RS2545SH does not work I could not locate the reset button How to fix please


Have you checked the temperature, inside of the freezer? It must be at least, 0 degrees, before the water will freeze into ice. Is the ice maker getting power? Why do you need to find a reset button? I don't know your ice maker. I've never heard, of a rest button on an ice maker. Your question isn't specific enough. Other than that, I can't help you. Good luck.

I need to thaw the ice that is in my ice maker (Kenmore Elite, 106.56709500), how do I do this? Can I just remove it?


Just get a new ice maker on cheap on ebay since the heating element (for ice removal) on tray will cost more than a new maker!

Ice maker quit working


Try and check the water valve for proper operation.
then check and see if there is a kind of ice blocking the fill tube to the ice maker.
there maybe a reset button on the ice maker that just might reset the unitif nothing else is wrong then you need to replace the ice maker. there might be a cover on the front of the ice maker that you can remove and youmight be able to advance the ice maker manuallyby using a screwdrive to turn the gear clockwise just until it starts to turn on it own and see what happens if you can advance it by hand

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.
