Common Ice Maker Problems
Some of the most common problems that can affect the proper functioning of an ice maker include:
The appliance is failing to make ice cubes
If your appliance is not producing ice cubes, it could be a problem with the water supply. If the ice cubes are small, or you are not getting any, first check the water supply lines. If the lines are not connected properly, or there is a blockage in the line, this will affect the waterflow. Check that the water supply line does not have a fold or a kink in it.
It could be that your filter is clogged or damaged. It’s recommended that you should really change your ice maker’s filters on a six-monthly basis, at least. If your problem persists, or you are in any doubt, one of our qualified technicians can quickly identify and sort your problem. Call us.
The ice maker is freezing
You can find that inflowing water will freeze before it reaches the cube mold. If this happens, no ice cubes will be formed, or you could end up with a large block of ice rather than cubes. This is normally caused by a defective thermostat. But the cause could be that the freezer’s temperature has been set too low.
So, we suggest that you consult the owner’s manual to check that you are within the recommended temperature range. If the temperature settings are correct according to the manual, but you still have the problem, you should call in the experts to take a look.
Can’t release the ice cubes from the machine
The is a common, if frustrating, problem that you may encounter. This normally happens when the appliance is set in the wrong mode. Consult the owner’s manual and hopefully the problem can be easily sorted.
On a lot of machines, ice production is regulated by a metal arm on the outside of the appliance. Lower the arm and you make ice–raise the arm and it stops.
If your ice maker isn’t performing as the user manual suggests it should, give us a call and we’ll be more than happy to cast an expert eye over it.
