Ice Maker

Have a 2006 Alpine with Amana fridge. Finally decided to use the icemaker and have no water. Ice maker cycles, but no water is running through it. Where do I turn on the water? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

I'm not sure about your coach but on mine, the ice maker is fed from the output of my drinking water filter located under my kitchen sink. it's the only bit of plumbing under there with a shut off valve which feeds a 1/4" tube which runs under the coach to the fridge.

The line comes up through the floor in the waste tank bay. On my 05 the valve is behind the removable panel in the water service compartment. The panel above the sewer dump handles is held in place with Velcro. You should find the valve behind it.

Dont know about Monacos and other "SOBs" but on our Alpines, the 1/4" tube runs behind the refrig thru the floor to the holding tank area to the water piping behind the velcro-ed door in the drivers side waterfill/dumping station area. There should be a brass 1/4" t-valve behind the aforementioned door. If this valve is open, you may have issues with the solenoid water valve[s] in the fridge itself--lets hope its just the brass t-valve. Curious, does the chilled water outlet in the fridge door have water to it? If so, its back to checking the ice maker valve solenoid.

No water dispensed and I don't see a 1/4 line or a brass T Valve behind the Velcro Panel. Any other ideas? Hate to go dark---but knowing Alpine they might not have put the line in.

Open the bay door on the passenger side that does not have a latch (SB the 2nd door forward of the rear wheel). You can get it open by removing a couple of bolts from the bottom. With the door propped open youl should be able to see a water line going up through the floor. I have seen the shut of valve in that area on older Alpines.

My coach has a 1/4" shut off valve right behind the City Water inlet in the service bay. I have to pull off the cover above the black & gray shut offs to gain access. I thought it was in a wierd location but certainly easier to access than pulling those bolts to open the compartment below the residential frig!?

Bob:

On our (identical) coach, the shutoff is centered behind the velcro-ed panel. Too bad yours is harder to get to. Taking off the larger panel is a PITA.

The panel on the opposite side of the coach is really easy to open. You might be surprised at all the extra plumbing WRV left behind. I have an extra 15' of PEX and an extra chunk of ice maker tubing. I did have to add and glue down some small wood blocks for the screws that hold the panels to attach to. The original screws jumped ship somewhere along the line. They were drywall screws. Now they're longer deck screws. (A very sophisticated repair.)

bittersweet:

Based on what I've seen, I would be surprised if WRV didn't hook up the ice maker. Even though we often complain about problems on our coaches, they really were very well made (at least by industry standards). We all agree, they could have actually PDI'd them, but the basics were there.

BTW, welcome to the forum!

You don't say what length your coach is but on my '07 34FDDS the valve is at the top of the compartment just below the fridge access panel. The ice/water line is stainless steel wrapped and the valve is part of the tee on the plastic water line.

The residential refer would be without an access panel. The only two access points to the water line would be one side of the tank bay or the other.
