Common Ice Maker Issues
Some of the most common ice maker problems are listed below:
1. The appliance won’t make ice cubes
If your ice maker is struggling to create ice cubes, it is most likely a water supply fault. Keep an eye out for smaller ice cubes or even none, you’ll need to assess the water supply. The water supply will come from lines. When these lines aren’t connected sufficiently, or even damaged, this will could an interference to the water supply.
Water flow issues can also stem from a blocked or impaired filter. These filters require replacing at six-month intervals. Our team of experts will efficiently identify the root cause of ice prevention – finding a swift solution!
2. The ice maker is freezing
A lack of ice cubes can be caused by freezing of water inflow prior to arriving at the cube mold. This will result in one frozen ice cube, instead of a series of cubes. A defective thermostat is the most common culprit in this instance. Although, don’t forget to check the freezer’s temperature, as it may be set too low.
Assess temperature settings and proceed with examining the manual to maintain correct temperature scope. If temperatures are accurate, then it’s time to get your appliance evaluated by a pro!
3. Ice cubes don’t break free from the machine
This is a usual frustration with ice machines. It commonly occurs when the appliance is set in the wrong method. Thus, your primary action should be to assess your appliance manual to confirm the correct settings are in use.
There is often a metal arm on the outer of the ice-making machine. It is possible to increase or decrease the height of this accessory to control ice formation.
You get ice when the arm is lowered. This is a common occurrence for ice maker malfunctions. If you’ve assessed all possible causes, and issues persist, we’ll be there to help!
