I have a unit under my sink for drinking water and it works fine. I ran a line over to my refrigerator and hooked it up to the ice maker. No Ice. I read that it takes at least 20psi to make ice so I put more pressure in the tank and still no ice. Any ideas?

It may have froze up the ice maker supply tube in the freezer because of the low water pressure to start. Find tube in freezer that puts water in the ice maker and make sure that is clear. Did you have ice maker hooked up to regular water before? And if so, did it work fine then? If so, then it'll point you in the direction of the problem.

First, thanks for the help.

Yes, the ice maker worked great for years on regular water. I thought I would get better ice for my favorite cold beverages.

If it is froze up, how do I tell and how do I thaw it out. Does adding more psi to the tank correct my problem?

If you can't see the water tube into the I/M in the freezer section, the easiest way to tell would be unhook the water line on the back of the ref. and try to blow through it. If it is froze up, the quickest way to unthaw it is using a hair dryer to blow hot air in tube. I think if you get better pressure it should work, but I don't know a whole lot (anything) about those water systems. Good luck.

If it still doesn't work, include what kind of ref. it is and style (SXS, top freezer) on next post

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
