OK, we spent the extra couple of hundred dollars on the ice maker that's installed in the four door Norcold Ultraline 1210 fridge. Was it a good investment? Not yet.



Seems that we are not getting enough water to the ice maker because when the cubes (not really cubes) drop they are very small and hollow. That tells me that the automatic valve that fills it with water is cutting off too soon and not allowing the 'ice tray' to fill completely.



Does anyone else have the ice maker? Have you had any problems with the operation? Any suggestions??



I contacted Thetford customer service and they say "go to the dealer" for a fix. I would rather not. Maybe I'm imagining things but when I take my36RL for service, it comes out with other things not working that were working when I took it in. May be a good way to keep the factory warranty repair money coming? Naw... they wouldn't do that!

Our Dometic did the same thing initially. After running it for a week though it now makes whole ice cubes. In our case believe the water line was not full.

We had a problem initially with no water going to the ice maker, part of our inspection at the dealership, a technician found a valve turned off on the water feed line, turned the valve and presto, ice. It does not make ice as fast as my portable ice machine. I bought one of those portable ice machines that you just add water, and in 8-10 min you start having ice. That machine makes 23-26 lbs of ice a day. I carry it with us as you never have enough ice for drinks!!

We used a portable ice for 2 years until it gave up, then we ordered our Redwood with the ice maker but in hopefully it will keep up. If does not keep up I will remove the ice maker in the freezer and buy another stand alone ice maker.

I am aware of only one valve for the ice maker and it's located under the kitchen sink. It's open and working fine. Is there another valve that I should be checking?

look on the back side of the coach where the refrigerator vents, there is a valve in there. Our tech opened the valve and then did a reset on the ice maker from that location

Is there possibly a water filter to the ice maker, that might be clogged or the water line may be pinched.
