Refrigerator Question

We have a 2000 Tradewinds
The refrigerator is a Dometic side by side with an ice maker. The ice maker isn't working. Never did.
It could be because I cant find the water shut off valve.
We've owned it for about 1 year and haven't used it much.
Any help would be appreciated in locating the valve.
Thanks in advance

My 05 Tradewinds has the water line to the icemaker under the sink. It was tied into the filtered water faucet on the sink. NRV routed the ice maker water line so that it came off of a filter under the kitchen sink. I did not have a separate shut off to the icemaker.

On the outside, inside the refrigerator lower access bay (mine has two access doors and upper and a lower) you can see the solenoid valve that turns the water on each time the tray needs to be filled.

Last point, the icemaker really needs to be on 110V AC to work. When I am on generator or shore power I get a full ice bucket in about 1-2 days.

Yep, like Duane said, under the sink, must have electrical power and the arm in the down position. My side by side ice maker works great. Depending on when you bought it, it could have been shut down for winterization. Check the outside access panel to the back of the fridge and see if the water line is connected, if it is take the top line off, turn the valve on under the sink and once you let fresh water run through it for a few seconds, then reconnect it. This is in case they had used antifreeze to winterize the water lines before you got it. Let us know how it turns out.
