Thank you!

The third digit is the letter I not a number 1 ,just so you know.give me a minute to pull the model info up .

The first time the icemaker actually cycles on its own it will purge any water out of the icemaker lines.

Here is a video that shows you how to pull the ice container and then how to unmount the icemaker so that you can manually pour water into the icemaker mold so that it then can automatically cycle after that water freezes and get cold enough for the icemaker to cycle on it`s own.

At about 2;40 you will see the icemaker out far enough to add water to it add only 7 ounces of water .

If you have any questions just reply back to me.

Right at the 2 minute and 40 second it has showed how to remove the icemaker and at that time you can add the 7 ounces of water to the icemaker.

I have now tried it on 3 (three) separate devices and it is able to load on each device.
