Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Hi there on that model, there is no reset switch, if there is ice in the ice maker and it is not dumping that means the thermostat inside the ice maker is bad so it does not know there is ice in the tray and will not complete the harvest cycle. The ice maker will need to be replaced.

Hi there,

I was just touching base with you because I have not heard back from you and the question is still open and unrated, is there something else I can help you with or did you just forget to rate the answer?
