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

    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
    • The window on AIX that I read Usenet News on was....   I started on computers with punch cards, then moved up to a 2260 and MTMT (multiple terminal monitor task) which was an IBM Rochester homegrown thing for running terminals attached to the 360/65 we had at the time.   Actual first computer I ever used was a CDC 1604 at the U of MN.....
    • There I might have made it a little easier to read😁    Hope we are all still around in another 10 years!!
