Icemaker have small circuit board inside, very often this board will freeze up after a while with out use. You can take icemaker out and leave it out overnight and install it again, most of the time it works.

First time owner. Have tankless water heater. How do I de-winterize the RV?


De winterizing is easy. They use a pink antifreeze which is food grade. Make surer the water heater is not by-passed. This is sometimes done using furnished bypass valves so that less antifreeze is needed. You can flip the water heater pressure release after connecting to city water. Water will come out if it is full. Do NOT turn on the water heater until you are certain the tank is full of water so as not to burn out the element. (This is true every time you set up) Run all faucets until you no longer see pink and you are de winterized.

Winter sign on dashbord and no first gear


There will be a button on the dashboard somewhere (or next to the gearshift perhaps) that has the winter symbol on it. The reason you are starting in 2nd is that you have selected winter mode (possibly hit it while cleaning?) and to make it safer to take off, 2nd gear is used (less likely to lose traction)

My NewAir Portable Ice Maker no longer makes ice. It pumps water up into the resvior but the fan motor never turns on and it does not freeze the water. Why is it acting this way?


is the compressor hot? if so, the fan might be dead. the condenser needs air flow to cool down. if the compressor doesn't even turn on, the starter coil (inside the box on the front of the compressor) may be shot.

English instructions for saivod fhs186 ice maker


DO THE BASICS:
Change the water filter
Add ice machine cleaner and go by the directions.
What should be kept clean?
There are 5 things to keep clean:
1. The outside cabinet & door.
2. The ice storage bin.
3. The condenser.
4. The ice making system.
5. The ice scoop.
The ice storage bin should be sanitized
occasionally. It is usually convenient to sanitize the
bin after the ice making system has been cleaned,
and the storage bin is empty.
A sanitizing solution can be made of 1 ounce of
household bleach and two gallons of hot (950F. -
1150F.) water. Use a clean cloth and wipe the
interior of the ice storage bin with the sanitizing
solution, pour some of the solution down the drain.
Allow to air dry.

How to clean the condenser.
The condenser is like the radiator on a car, it has
fins and tubes that can become clogged. To clean:
1. Remove the kickplate.
2. Locate the condenser surface.
3. Vacuum the surface, removing all dust and lint.
Caution: Do not dent the fins.
4. Replace the kickplate.
Winterizing
1. Clean the machine as explained on the next
page.
2. Turn off the water supply.
3. Drain the water reservoir. See page 24, Spray
Pump Repair and follow the instructions to remove
the pump hose (step 2, bottom hose only).
4. Disconnect the incoming water line at the inlet
water valve.
5Remove control box cover and turn the timer
into the harvest cycle.
6. With the machine operating, blow air through
the inlet water valve; a tire pump could do the job.
7. Drain pump models should have about 1¤2 gallon
of RV antifreeze (propylene glycol) poured into the
ice storage bin drain.
Note: Automotive antifreeze must NOT be used.
8. Replace control box cover. Switch off and
unplug the machine.

CUBE ADJUSTMENTS
There are three items that may be adjusted: Cube
Size, Harvest Time, and Bin Level. Note: Cube
Size and Harvest Time adjustments should only be
done by a qualified service person.
Cube size control.
The cube size control should only be adjusted to
bring the cubes to the correct shape, the overall
size cannot be adjusted. Try to adjust the cube
size control when the ice machine is in the harvest
cycle, or in the first 10 minutes of the freeze cycle.
1. Open the door and remove the control box
cover.
2. Locate the cube size adjustment screw, and to
make fuller cubes, turn the screw clockwise about
1/4 turn. This will make the freezing cycle longer.
3. To shorten the freezing cycle and make cubes
that are not as full, turn the adjustment screw 1/4
turn counterclockwise.
4. After the next freezing cycle, the cubes should
have responded to the adjustment, if another
adjustment is required, do it early in the freeze
cycle.

Water and ice accumalated on back wall of the box. freezer is working and box is cold. However do not hear the loud cracking noise of the defroster any longer


Look for the defrost timer. A small flat knob that will only rotate clockwise. Usually located in the refrigerator compartment up in the top or in the back visible thru a small hole. It could be under the machine behind the front kick plate or in the rear of the box near the compressor. Find it and rotate it until ic clicks, the compressor will stop and defrost should begin. After about 15-30min it should restart the compressor, if not check the iceing in the back of the freezer compartment. If it is not gone or almost gone you have a problem in the defrost system. If it is gone then you will need to repace the defrost timer about $15-20USD at a parts wholesaler. The timer will have a Part Number on it or should be listed by brand. If the timer is electronic it can be quitea bit more expensive.

Inoperative Ice Maker


The icemaker stops working because excessive water gets into the control box(where circuit board is housed) through the shaft hole of "finger" and freezes the wheels to turn the "ice-bucket-full detector rod". This stops to send the signal to open water valve.
To fix, remove the icemaker from the wall (need remove two screws - make sure power switch is OFF) and carefully separate the snap-on cable (retangular shape) and a ground cable on the bottom side of the icemaker. (Now you can remove the icemaker out of the refrigerator).
You can open the contol box (need unscrew one and carefully prop it open using a screw driver or a knife. You can unplug color corded snap-on cables for easiness to work (very simple).
You will see ice formed around the plastic gear wheel controlling the "ice-bucket-full detector rod". Remove all ice and dry all the parts in the box and put them back. Make sure all the cable are back to the matching color receptable(only fits in the right place). Connect the cable(rectangular shape) and connect the ground cable. Mount the incemaker on the wall using two screws you removed at first.
Turn the power ON and reset the system by press down the ice cube size selector until the "fingers" make a full cycle. You will see the metal rod moves up and down as system resets. During this cycle the water will be filled into the icemaker.
I believe this icemaker has a design flaw but it's very simple to correct the problem you are experiencing. You do not need much electronic or mechanical knowlege to fix this.
Best wishes
