Common Ice Maker Issues
There are several problems that can affect the proper functioning of an ice maker. Some of the most common problems include:
1. The appliance isn’t making ice cubes
If your ice maker won’t produce ice cubes, there’s probably an issue with the water supply. If there are smaller ice cubes or none at all, examine the water supply lines first. These lines should be connected properly and not clogged or damaged in any way as anything blocking the line could interfere with the water flow.
A clogged or damaged filter may also cause water flow problems. Filters typically need to be changed at least once every six months. Our qualified technicians can quickly help you identify what is preventing ice from forming and find a viable solution for the problem.
2. The ice maker is freezing
If water inflow freezes before reaching the cube mold, no ice cubes will form, or you’ll end up with a frozen block of ice rather than cubes. This problem is normally a result of a defective thermostat. However, it can also occur when you have set the freezer’s temperature too low.
Check the temperature settings and then peruse the owner’s manual to ensure you are within the recommended temperature range. If the prevailing temperature settings are correct, then you should get your appliance checked by a professional to identify the problem.
3. Ice cubes don’t break free from the machine
This frustration is another common problem you may experience with your ice machine. It usually occurs when the appliance is in the wrong mode. Hence, the first thing to do in the case of the problem is to check your owner’s manual to ensure you’re using the right settings.
Many ice-making machines feature a metal arm on the outside. You can raise or lower this attachment to regulate ice production. Ice making usually stops when the arm is raised.
That means you get ice when the arm is down. This situation is a surprisingly common reason ice-making machines stop working. If everything is okay, however, but the appliance still isn’t working as expected, give us a call, and we’ll come check things out.
