Question about GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator
The ice maker is intended to tolerate the same water pressure as the cooled water supply so you only need to 'tee' them together can be had at any hardware store) and you should also buy a sink-type valve to put in the line so it can be conveniently shut off if need be. The sink-type valve will have similar dimensions but you should check the inlet line size before buying your parts. Safest would be to cut a 1/4" length from one of the lines to take with you.

George, the ice maker will cycle about every 2.5 hours. Sometimes it takes a couple cycles to prime the lines. You can remove the white cover of the ice maker. On the module you will see two ports, one marked L and another marked V on the left side. Take a insulated jumper wire and jump these two terminals. You are now sending 120V to the valve. See if the water starts coming in. Also make sure the bailing arm is down. Catriver...post back.

is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
