04 Southwind 37C Icemaker line?? Where is it?


Was trying to make some ice, and turned the ice maker on from inside the freezer and nothing was happening. Is there a bypass line for the icemaker? If so, where would I find it?

Somewhere near your fridg there should be a valve in the water supply line that feeds the ice maker. The valve may be below, beside, or behind the fridg but should be in fairly close proximity. That valve may be closed. Also, there should be a small electrically actuated "solenoid type" valve that opens to fill the ice maker when it demands water. That valve would be located in the ice maker water supply line on the rear of the fridg, inside the access door to the back of the fridg. That valve could be bad, disconnected, etc. Or... you may just have a bad ice maker.

you should have 2 water shut offs for the ice maker. One under the kitchen sink at the water filter for the ice maker. The other is behind the frig, which you access by removing the external frig access. It's a simple thumb valve on a 1/4 inch water line. This is where I turn the water off to the ice maker prior to storage to void the ice maker or water.

There is a delay built in, so the ice maker won't respond for a few minutes especially if the temperature inside the freezer is elevated.
