Ice Maker valve location

Hi fellow members

For those of you Columbus owners; I am having difficulty finding the water shut-off valve to the residential ice maker. I just had my fridge replaced under warranty and I am coming up to the 24 hr mark and still no ice nor any water noted in the maker. In order to verify if this valve is open I first need to find it. Any help to its location is appreciated.

Thank you in advance

I don't understand why RV manufactures can't identify where all the shutoff valves are located with a label and also a diagram. In my previous Cardinal It was behind a drawer below the oven and way back against the wall where my arm would just reach. Then I had to try to push/pull using just one hand. The one on my new Georgetown is in one of the basement bays behind a screwed in panel. The only way I found it was through a long search. Come on RV manufactures quit playing hide and seek with these valves.

There is a valve under the slide but it is already open (assuming this is in fact for the ice maker). Incidentally, that line appears to be all dry. If this is the correct one, then it is not getting water at all and there must be another somewhere that needs to be opened. Any other suggestions?

Can you loosen the fitting at the shut off valve?

Ah, I misunderstood earlier. As mentioned, this line has no water, it is dry and must have another valve somewhere else.

Well if it's air locked it won't have water in it.
You'll need to loosen the fitting to get the water flowing.

The valve on my Cedar Creek is a "bullet" type valve. The button on the end needs to be pushed in for it to be opened.
