I've had a browse through the Ice Maker FAQ's but am not entirely sure where to start. I had a quick look last night and made sure there was water supply/pressure coming out of the pre fridge filter.
I had a look at the ice tray, and made sure it was inserted correctly, then I tried to force a manual cycle as suggested by the fridge manual.(pressing the < and > right buttons. Although there was a reference to the button lock symbol, so I tried ti with the buttons locked and unlocked, no difference.
It has apparently not been as cold as "usual", and I got the impression that It wouldn't freeze ice the old school way in a tray. However I adjusted the freezer temp down as it seemed a tad high also.
I felt up inside the ice maker "tray" and there didn't appear to be any water in it.
Any suggestions where to start?
I presume I should check for pressure/flow at the solenoid by removing the tube there.
Where does the freezing in the tubes usually occur? before or after the solenoid?

I got a chance to have another look today. I tinkered around and connected the chilled water solenoid to the ice maker (after changing the keyed tabs), the water made its way to the ice tray no probs. So I returned it all to its original state.
This currently rules out issues with the solenoid, and lines..... However I did notice, that what I now know is the icemaker controller card after watching Samurai Appliance Repair Mans video, is blinking red 4 times. I'm presuming this must be some form of alarm. I noticed this on the previous visit, but didn't think much of it.
Any further thoughts? Dead controller, something else?
