GE Icemaker PFSS6PKXASS

Our GE refrigerator is les sthan a month old and our icemaker stopped making ice. The icon above the "Reset Filter" is lit, but I've removed the filter and replaced, plus tried to reset it with no luck -- the icon stays lit. And unfortunately the GE manual is of absolutely NO help as it doesn't even tell you how to reset the filter. Suggestions? We are nearing our 30 day return date for this product from Sears and I'm seriously considering taking it back.

    Just wondering...I can't get the "reset filter" light to go off even after holding the button down 3-5 sec.  The little sound does happen as if the unit has responded, but the light stays on. This has been since the frig was installed a couple of months ago, so it isn't a dirty filter.  Wondering what else I can do.  Thoughts?

To reset the filter light you need to hold the button in for 3-5 seconds , the light will usually flash while you hold the button down then it will go solid and then go out once you release the button. The ice maker will only make ice when the freezer is cold enough approx -14c . Did it make ice ok before ? There is the possibility that when changing the water filter air got into the system and has not bleed out of the ice maker feed tube yet.
The Ice maker can usually be put into a test mode by turning it off , wait 30 secs then turn it back on and press the ice level sensing paddle back three times within 15 secs of switching the ice maker back on . The ice maker should then go through a forced harvest cycle and ask for water at the end of it.
Hope this helps

    How do I turn the icemaker off; it is making too much ice, GE model GSH25JFXN WW?


    This is a quick guess. Look at the top of the ice bin. Many refrigerators stop the ice maker with a wire bale that rides up on the ice. Raise the bale and it should latch in place above the ice and shut off the icemaker.

    It stopped making ice but cold water option works fine. No clogs visible. Changed cold setting to 7 from 5. Nothing worked. just took out water filter, but can't see how that was the problem.


    Put the filter back in . Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps , then replace the water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump and the ice stays in the icemaker , replace the icemaker . Also , make sure the coils are clean of dust etc... Reset the controls back to normal or you could create water freezing in door (dispensor) .

    Whirlpool refrigerator stopped making ice.


    If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the problem is in the icemaker. If the icemaker is dry then you have a water supply problem, even if you have a water in the door working.
    1.Check the fill line inside the freezer at the icemaker, if it is clogged with ice then remove this ice and replace the water valve.

    2. Check the water supply. Turn the water supply off, disconnect the water line from the Ref, turn the water back on an fill a small glass. If the water supply is good the solenoid on the water valve should be checked. This is done with an OHM meter.

    GE Refrigerator Stoped making ice


    the small pipe in side the freezer the one that supplies water to it, it builds ice in side, you can melt the ice by getting some hot water and a towel and wet the pipe with it intel ice melts , or you can unplug the frige with the door open over night.first solution is better.

    Icemaker isn't making any ice


    Your fill tube that fills the Icemaker could be froze up, The plastic tube that goes into the icemaker. Sometimes they get froze shut. You can remove it from the back of the fridge, just pull it out from the back and take a look. If that doesn't work, Let me know.

    If it's not the water valve, it's the icemaker. Since you have just replaced the water valve and it's not calling for water, I would say that the icemaker should be replaced.
