Fridge water/ice maker

I have a 2020 North Point 310RLTS and Iíve been racking my brain trying to figure out how to get the fridge to dispense water/make ice. Any advice or tips would be great.

There are two water valves that must be turned on. One is behind your stove closest to the floor. You will have to remove the bottom drawer and reach back to turn it on. The second valve is under your kitchen sink behind a small false wall. It will look like it was made to cover the sink pipes but you will find the second one here. Just unscrew the little wall pieces and you will see it.

Hope this helps!

Lol! Welcome to the club of been there done that.
There is a water shutoff valve either behind the fridge or under the stove/oven.
My 17 Northpoint 375 has the shutoff valve that you have to take the access panel off in front of the stove and reach to the back and around to corner to the fridge and its right there. Yours may be the same.
Keep us posted...

There is no valve under the sink, but there is one behind the trash can beside the sink. However that is a drain valve for the drinking water system and simply pumps off the water in the 5gal jug. The valve under the stove is also a low point drain valve for the ice maker and drains the same spot as the drinking water system. I will update with further discoveries as I find them. Determined to figure this out tonight haha.

My low point drain for the fridge/icemaker is located underneath the trailer directly below the fridge slide out.
It dont make sense to have a low point drain under the stove location. That's almost gotta be the shutoff valve. I've been wrong before though.

Thatís where this low point drain is. The problem I initially ran into was that valve was opened, so when I opened the valve on the island coming from the drinking water pump, it pumped right out the low point drain. With the valve on the island open and the low point drain valve closed the pump dead heads there and goes through the valve under the oven to the fridge. I thought the valve under the oven was a drain since itís plumbed into the drain.

What a piss poor set up that is. Unbelievable.
The good thing is you found the valves and figured it out.
Maybe a future mod to simplify that?? Lol!

Man I work in the oil and gas industry, you donít have to talk to me about over engineering, or piss poor design. Engineers never seem to think in terms of the simple man end user. Iím just glad Iíve had a full of career having to chase plumbing and figure things like this out (and dealing with engineers), it definitely helped me figure this out.

*Update*

The water is still dispensing fine, but 18 hours later there was no ice nor signs of ice attempting to make. Did a little research on the model of refrigerator and found an arm that stops ice production when bin is full was in the up position. It took a little force to get it to come down and is now in the make ice position. I havenít heard the pump activate like itís filling the ice maker though, it is still dispensing water, I checked that. Has anyone had any similar issues? Did I break the arm that senses full/empty on the ice maker? Now that itís down will it take some time to start making ice?

Check the icemaker for a power switch. Either on the front or the side.

Try to hold the switch to the on position for 15 to 30 seconds. That should force it into a cycle.

Youíll have to elaborate some. The on off switch is a toggle switch behind the ice cube holder. The switch that recognizes when the holder is full hangs down into the holder until it fills up pushing it into the off position. Iím not sure which one your talking about holding on.
