Common Ice Maker Problems
Ice Makers have a lot of moving parts, which means they are one of the most common components of you refrigerator to break down.
While most issue are best left to a factory authorized technician, there are a few common problems you may be able to address on your own.
Water Supply Problems
If your ice maker isn’t making ice cubes, there could be a problem with the water supply. If you’re getting no cubes, or only small cubes, check the water supply lines and make sure they are properly connected and not blocked or damaged in some way. Something jammed against the line could case the water flow to stop.
If your refrigerator has a filter that hasn’t been change in a while, or is damaged in some way, it could also prevent water flow to the ice maker. Try putting a new filter in, per your manufacturer’s instructions. Typically these filters last about six months, but if they get clogged they can prevent ice from being made.
Another common issue with ice makers is the unit freezing. If water freezes before it gets to the cube mold, you won’t have any ice. While this could be due to a faulty thermostat, it might also be because the refrigerator/freezer’s temperature is set too low. Check the thermostat settings and then check your owner’s manual to make sure your within the manufacturer’s recommended temperature.
A much more minor problem many people run into with their ice machines is when the ice cubes do not break free from the unit. This is usually because the ice maker is in the wrong mode. Check your owner’s manual to make sure everything is set correctly. Many ice makers have an metal/wire arm on the outside of the unit that can be raised and lowered to control ice production. If the arm is up, ice production will be paused. If it’s down you should be getting ice. It isnot uncommon for this arm to be inadvertently moved to the up position.
Another reason your ice maker may stop making ice is if the ice tray/bin is full with unlevel ice, or if something is inside or covering the tray causing the sensors to believe the bin is full. Clear the bin and/or level the ice out and it should start producing again.
Always be careful and consult your owner’s manual before attempting to repair your appliances. If you have questions, or would like to schedule a service call for you ice maker in the Wichita area.
