Common Ice Maker Issues
Ice Maker Freezing Up
It is possible for the water to freeze up before it ever even hits the mold. If this happens it is probably because of a bad thermostat or because the freezer is set to the wrong temperature. Check the owner’s manual to make sure that you have the temperature set within the optimal range for your particular model. If the temperature is properly set, call in a great professional like us to find the problem for you.
Ice Cubes Are Not Breaking Free
If this happens to your ice maker, you will want to reference the owner’s manual first. Check to make sure that you have the machine set properly because this can happen if the ice maker is set to the wrong mode.
There is also a metal arm on most models that regulate the ice-making process. When the arm is raised, the machine will not make any ice and when the arm is down, it triggers the machine to make more ice. You may want to check and see if there is an issue with this arm. If this looks good, give us a call so we can come out and give you a hand with your ice maker.
Ice Makers Not Making Ice At All
This most likely happens because there is a problem with the water supply that is being fed to the ice maker. If the cubes are smaller than they should be or nonexistent, you will want to check the lines that feed the machine water. You will want to look for cracks, clogs, kinks, leaks, or any sort of damage to these lines. It is also possible that the filter could be damaged or clogged. The water filters in ice makers should be changed, on average, every six months. Check your owner’s manual to see what is necessary for your ice maker. If you do not see any problems with these things, let us come and take a look at it for you.
