How does the ice maker in a refrigerator work?

The icemaker has a water pump, which draws water from a collection sump and pours it over the chilled ice tray. As the water flows over the tray, it gradually freezes, building up ice cubes in the well of the tray. When you freeze water layer by layer this way, it forms clear ice.

How long before ice maker fills with water?

To be safe, it is best to wait at least 24 hours. If the icemaker was installed but the water line was not added until later, once the water and icemaker is turned on the icemaker will cycle within a few minutes and fill and process its first cubes in about 1 1/2 hours.
