Refrigerator - New Icemaker Not Producing Ice
If an icemaker has just been installed in your refrigerator or if this is a newly installed refrigerator with an icemaker, there are a few things that must happen before it can produce ice.
The refrigerator and icemaker must be at the proper temperature.
If just installed, the icemaker itself could take 24 hours to get cold enough to produce ice.
The icemaker mold must reach 16 degrees F before a cycle will begin.
The recommended fresh food temperature setting is 37 degrees F and the recommended freezer temperature setting is 0 degrees F.
Make sure the icemaker is turned on.
Icemakers are typically shipped with the power setting in the Off position.
Consult your Owner's Manual for instructions on how to turn on your icemaker. Download a copy of your Owner's Manual.
The water line must be purged of air.
The icemaker will purge any air within the water supply line by cycling several times before filling with water.
The first fill may only be a small amount of water but the second fill cycle would fill over this. It may overfill slightly but this is normal.
