Dometic ice maker question

I'm having an issue with my ice maker only making ice sometimes. Last summer, the bin always stayed full so I would lift the lever to stop it so I didn't have stale ice all the time. Now it only seems to make ice about once a week or so.
Has anyone experienced this?

Is your value open all the way? Might not be getting filled with water. Also, are you some place cold? Could be a frozen water line leading to the fridge,

I'm in Colorado but it's been in the 50's and 60's the last week or so. I noticed when I was checking in the outside fridge access that there's a tag that says the fridge is equipped with a heater for cold weather and ice maker operation.
Also, I defrosted the freezer today to see if that makes a difference

Jegstrup, up in Divide? Were down here in Pueblo. We had to replace our water silonid once in the back of the fridge and there is heat tape around it, but not on the plastic line to the silonid. Also we always shut the ice maker off when not hooked up to water since it will keep trying to put water in it when there is no presure.

It's a Dometic rm1350.

We had ours replaced twice it has stopped making ice again. We are not replacing it again I think there is a design flaw.

I got tired of fooling with the ice maker and the small amt of ice it made so I turned it off, turned off the water to it and bought a portable ice maker. It pours out ice and supply us with tons of it....

I removed the ice bucket and now have extra room for frozen food....

Hmmm, the common thread seems to be that the ice maker is a POS and just forget about it lol
