Have just returned home from a vacation, before which we

Have just returned home from a long vacation, before which we emptied the ice bin and turned off the ice maker. After turning it back on, it is not producing ice. The "replace filter" light was showing so I replaced the water filter - still no ice. The water spout on the fridge is working fine, so I don't think there is a problem with the water supply. What else could be the problem?

Tyler. I'm trying to install a very basic Frigidaire gas

Hey Tyler. I'm trying to install a very basic Frigidaire gas range. I don't know that we can do this on the internet, since you can't see it, but I'll try to explain my difficulty. Having not seen the range, I just took over a 60" long 1/2 in. OD yellow connecting line from Home Depot that has the fittings for each end that are supposed to connect, on one end, to what I call the supply/feed valve from the wall, and, on the other end, to the unit. First, I don't know if I just need some kind of reduction connection, because the old connecting line is maybe half again bigger around as the new 1/2 in. connecting line. I don't know how many connecting sizes there are, but this bigger one was connected to the old range that was removed before I got there. (1) So size is the first issue. The new hose connector is too little for the threads on the supply valve. (2) The other end of the 1/2 in. hose that goes to the range has a beveled male end and a female end. The beveled end apparently screws into the female end of the connector hose itself, and the other end of the connector is just a threaded steel male end. It does fit into the cone-shaped (inside) port of the range. Does that sound right? (3) Something I watched suggested you use an elbow from the port of the range to the end of the connector at the range end (I guess to put less strain on the hose.) Would you normally do that? I know what to tape and seal and what not to and how to test for leaks, but I just want to get the right connections. Also, I don't know if reducing it is correct. The new hose I bought is "for most most moderate demand appliances" up to 53,200 BTU/HR. What's easier, buy a bigger hose that fits the supply end and reduce it at the range end or what I've already suggested, reducing at the supply end and then the new hose should fit the range?
