Hi Gopher2,

 

Is this a new refrigerator, or an older unit?

 

New refrigerator ice makers will  take up to 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice.

 

If it is an existing unit, there could be several causes for no ice:

 

(1) Temp set to high in freezer.

 

(2) Ice maker turned off by accident, make sure the ice maker arm is in the down position or the switch is turned on.

 

(3) Water supply to ice maker turned off, the line is clogged or has air in the line. Bleed the air out of the line.

 

(4) Ice maker is frozen up, this is caused by too much water in the ice maker. Check the ice maker water supply solenoid and valve.

 

(5 ) Ice maker has simply failed, replacement will be necessary.

 

Mike,
