Wondering if anyone can shed some light on a problem we are having. While plugged in at the marina our ice maker won't make ice. It runs initially sounds like it will work but then nothing. The unit is cold, but the cycle just never completes. This being said when we are out and use the gennie the ice maker works no issue.
Anyone know why this is happening?

Check your voltage & amps when on shore power? Maybe shore power is not providing enough voltage or amps to run the compressor so it is cold enough to make ice? If original panel then you have the rotary switch for section and that may be the issue as well...we went through two switches and finally did an entirely new panel with breakers for vs rotary switch for source selection as it was so frustrating what those switches will mess with as they start to fail (ie refer, ice maker, invert, LED TV's, computer, etc)

This doesn't make sense, I wonder if it is a coincidence? Our ice maker would get cold but would not make ice I replaced the whole ice maker assembly ~$150 from Amazon and it works great now.
