These icemakers generally do not produce a large quantity of ice in 24 hours. However, that does seem to be too little.
The cause can be that the water valve was not turned on completely and you do not have enough water pressure going to the refrigerator. You should check to be sure that you have good water pressure going to the refrigerator's valve.
Bernie, water pressure doesn't seem to be the problem. the valve is open all the way and the water flow from the door dispenser is good.
I had checked them first.
Please check the waterline that comes into back of the icemaker to see if it's frozen. If you press it carefully you may hear it crunch.
Also, Do you see an frost on the back wall of the freezer?
I'm having some dificulty with my connection here at work. I apologize for the delay.
water lines seem to be unrestricted. It seems to me that the motor is not going thru normal sequence. (the white prongs that push the ice out into the bucket does not seem to move) they have been in the same spot for the last 30 minutes.
This by itself would not be an indication of a problem. They can take more than 30 minutes to move. It would be unusal to have a defective new icemaker. They are usually pretty good.
Check the freezer temperature. If should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.If there is a problem with the ice maker, you would check ice maker mold thermostat to make sure that it's cycling properly.
I'm having dificulty with my connection and I may have to continue when I get home (9:30 pm est). My connection at home is usually pretty good.
Please let me know if this will be ok.

Sometimes, the site is a little glitchy. If you have difficulty, clean your temporary files and your hard drive, restart the computer and try again. It's definitely worth it to have the right information. You can go to the top left corner and save the PDF file to your desktop for easy access.
