Help me get ice maker working - 2020 Cedar Creek Hathaway

HI. We just purchased a 2020 Cedar Creek Hathaway. When we took delivery of it and once we got it home from three states away and realized that most of the odds and ends were not set up or turned on etc. We have figured out most of it, now trying to get the ice maker to work. Does it have a water line going to it? Can anyone help me to even figure out where the turn on is?

I'm going to assume that you have a residential refrigerator. There is a water line going to the rear it. On my 2017 the water shut off is located under the kitchen slide near the axles and up against the frame. Look for something like this....

It is probably a put to open instead of a pull

Thank you for your response! We opened that and we are still not having any luck. We turned ice machine on on outside of residential refrigerator. Is there anything behind fridge that needs to be turned on?

Hello, is there a valve under the kitchen sink? Many other brands do this.

Dumb question, but did you pull the bail on the icemaker down?

The "bail" is the bent rod which shuts the icemaker off when the bucket gets full or when you pull it up to shut the icemaker off.

I have a 2018 CC Silverback 37FLK with the same setup and could not get water to the fridge. My problem ended up being a kinked water line behind fridge. Once I pulled it away from the wall it was easy to see the problem.

Maybe

Our new Columbus has a small outside the unit door you open up behind the fridge area and inside is a small on/off valve to turn on or off the icemaker.

In your cedar creek, how did you pull residential fridge from wall? Did you have to release something?

There were two screws at the top through a L bracket that where attached to the wall and two on the bottom that held it to the floor behind the grill.

Sorry for the late response. I don't check these forums often.

Thank you. Mine must be different, as I have looked and looked and see no brackets, top or bottom. It appears that if I retract the leveling feet by the front rollers, it should just pull out. I will do that as a last resort.

Our residential refrigerator was held in place by a L bracket on top of the refrigerator. The refrigerator was sitting on what looked like a small pallet. The pallet collapsed and the refrigerator fell off the mount. So then the refrigerator was half in and half out. We had to push the refrigerator up so we could get the slide. We ended up taking the Cedar Creek to custom rv shop in Pigeon Forge TN. They charged two hundred bucks, the refrigerator looks great now, no more problems. I would like to find another door for the refrigerator

First batch of ice can take up to 24 hours.

The freezer must be good and cold before it will make ice. If you want to, you can force the ice maker to go through a cycle.
IMPORTANT!!! The ice maker works on 120 volts AC. Don't touch the bare ends of the wire when you perform this procedure.
Remove the cover from the end of the ice maker. You should see a large gear and directly under this there are two test ports marked T and H. You will need a short piece of insulated wire with the ends stripped to a 1/2" bare. Bend the wire and push both ends into the ports. The gear will start to move and you should hear a small click in about 5 seconds. Remove the wire. The ice maker will cycle and the water solenoid will open. You should hear water flowing, if there is pressure.

If you have a water fill system in your refrigerator, run water thru it until you get all the air out. Then your ice maker will probably work
