On maiden voyage of our Suncruiser. For the life of me I can't get the icemaker to work. This is a brand new unit - manual tells me nothing!!! (Or maybe I just don't understand it ...lol)

Any help appreciated. (We did push down the arm to start it - no water???)

Help appreciated.

There might be a little valve with a white plastic line under the sink going to the fridge. make sure that is open. You will need to have 110 volts to the fridge, the ice maker probably will not work with 12 volts only.

Tom,

Don't forget that you need power to the fridge and water pressure to that line under the sink. If you are not hooked up to city water with a hose you need to have the water pump turned on and fresh water in the tank.

Sometimes it takes a while for the cycle to complete - fill, freeze, empty.

Good luck.

Also, the freezer has to be below freezing before the ice maker will start to work. As a rule, I will start up the frig a day before we leave on a trip so it can start making the ice. I can plug into a 30 amp outlet at home and will run the refrigerator after I get all plugged in. It does take 120 volts for the ice maker to work and as the above post said, you have to have water pressure whether it be via a direct hook up to city water or via your water pump.

Thanks gang - it's working fine. Yes I did have the everything running a day before the trip. Just could figure out where the alleged valve was that fed the water.

We are now icy cool.......

On a related note, we had our icemaker replaced at GNR last year. The Norcold tech who did it told us to never travel with the icemaker on; the spashing of the water before it freezes can cause trouble.

cyko --

That's an interesting comment you passed along. We've never had a problem traveling with the icemaker "on" but I can see the physics behind the comment. But on a practical manner what do you do? Use a towel to soak up the water in the tray before heading out?

Usually we travel with a full ice box, from either running the icemaker a day or so before setting out or it running continuously at a campsite, so maybe we've avoided the problem.

I can not see how this would be a problem usles you had a long extention cord or traveled with your generator on. It won't work unless you have 120 volt power on.
