This sounds like a leaky water valve. Clear ice plug and replace valve. Install in-line filter just before valve to protect it from future damage.
Hope this helps.

The back wall of your freezer covered with snow? If it is I would suggest you replace the heater and a thermistor - Heater: WR51X10101 Thermistor: WR55X10025. If no snow then it is probably the main pcb: WR55X10656

The lower the number the cooler the setting. Standard settings are left for lower right for higher, left for cooler right for warmer. good luck

Make sure that your ice tray is properly instaled. There is a rod that must go into a hole. When you select ice cubes rather than crushed ice a solenoid raises which moves that rod. It then opens a flap so the cubes can bypass the crusher. Either your rod is not in the hole correctly or the solenoid has gone bad. The rod that I am speaking of runs along the underside of the ice tray. It has a spring on the rear end that holds the bypass flpa closed.

Hi, well this isn't something that can be "Reset'. You see what has happened is that the Thermistor and or the Thermostat is most likely the problem, if so this will need to be replaced to effect repair.Also unfortunately it maybe the main controller board? There is simply no way to actually tell with just these symptoms and without actually examining the unit. To effect a repair as fast and as inexpensively as possible the very best thing you can do is to call in a professional, contact a local or head office from GE, ask them for a referral to an authorised service center, then make contact there and ask for a service call. Now when you are in face to face contact, at this time ONLY, ask for a "Quote" as to what's wrong and prospective costings, and proceed from there, once you know what's going on?
Really it isn't a DIY repair, however if you do wish to DIY, then you would need to obtain a service manual, use that and perform and work through the troubleshooting steps to locate and isolate the suspect parts and then using the service manual to get the parts numbers, and obtain the spares.

You have a frozen selnoid that opens a door to let ice to pass crusher. And also the ice maker needs a different arm so not to make too much ice. You will have to call a tech to do the job. But now you know what is wrong. I hope this helps.

NOTE: This
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.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
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 AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
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
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
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
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP
