Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

Have you had it connected to water and turned on for a few hours? It will take a few hours to initiate the first harvest cycle and then it will have to cycle a couple times to purge the air from the water line. How long has it been connected and turned on?

Did u get this
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Ah, okay, thank you. The easiest way to diagnose ice maker issues is to manually fill the ice maker with water. If it dumps the cubes in a few hours but does not refill the ice maker tray, then there is a problem with the water fill, like a frozen fill tube or a faulty water inlet valve. If it does not dump the cubes, then the issue is with the ice maker itself or the temperature is too high and not allowing the harvest to start. Let me know what happens, please.

Well if filled it, not this will work though , it's not getting water up the tube , so I thinks it a faulty solenoid valve

How do a set the temp and would that effect the valve signal etc
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

The ice maker will not cycle until the mold reaches about -12* or so.

There's no water getting up the tube at the back ? Did you get the photo of the pump unit
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Yes, thank you. Remove the hose from the valve that fills the ice maker and blow through it. If it is clear, the valve is likely faulty.
