Common Ice Maker Problems
There’s a variety of issues your ice makers can get which can affect its normal form and function. These are the most common issues our customers face.
The Icemaker doesn’t make ice cubes
An ice maker that doesn’t make ice most commonly has water supply problems. If only small ice cubes are produced, or none at all, then check the water supply lines. Make sure that these are connected right and are not clogged or damaged. Make sure there are no kinks that could block the water flow too.
A damaged or clogged filter will cause water flow problems. An icemaker filter should be changed every six months. We can help you to identify the problem your machine is facing that is preventing it from making ice and come up with the right solution for you.
The Icemaker is Frozen
If the water entering the ice machine freezes before it reaches the cube tray then, of course, you won’t have any ice cubes and will instead be left with a frozen block of ice to deal with instead. This issue is most commonly caused by a faulty thermostat. It can also happen when the freezer temperature has been set too low.
Therefore, before calling us to check with the owner’s manual and make sure that your thermostat matches the guidelines. If the temperature settings are right, then you’ll need to give us a call so we can help you.
The Ice Cubes are Stuck in the Machine
This is a very common problem that our customers experience. This will usually happen because of user error that leaves your ice maker in the wrong setting. When this issue happens you should first consult with your owner’s manual to make sure that the settings are correct. Most modern ice makers have a metal arm on the outside which can be raised to lower to regulate ice production. Ice making will typically stop when the arm is left raised.
While this issue might seem simple, it is actually one of the most common reasons our customers call us. However, if everything is okay with the machine, then give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.
