Common Ice Maker Problems
There are a variety of common issues that can impact the function of your ice maker. We’ve listed the most common that our customers experience below:
The Ice Maker Isn’t Making Ice Cubes!
An ice maker that isn’t making ice cubes isn’t an ice maker at all and likely has issues with its water supply. If you’re still getting ice cubes that are very small or none at all, then you need to check the water supply lines. Make sure that these are connected properly and don’t have any clogs or damage which could affect the water flow.
Clogs in the filter may also impede the water flow. You should be changing your filter every six months to prevent this issue. However, if you’ve made these checks and are still clueless, give us a call and we’ll get to the bottom of the problem.
The Ice Maker Has Frozen
If the ice maker is too cold then water will freeze before it is able to reach the ice cube mold meaning you won’t get ice cubes but instead be left with a block of ice. This issue is caused by thermostat issues or simply because you’ve set the ice maker’s temperature too low.
Before calling us to check that your temperature settings are correct using the owner’s manual to help you. If the setting is right but the issue continues then give us a call and we’ll fix it fast.
Ice Cubes get Stuck
If the ice cubes are stuck in your machine or aren’t dispensing properly then your ice maker is likely in the wrong mode, so give your owner’s manual a quick look to see that everything is in order. Most ice makers will use a metal arm on the outside which can be raised or lowered depending on whether you want ice dispensed or not. When the arm is in the raised position no ice will be made, so if this is the case, my simply changing the arm position your problem will be solved.
However, if everything is fine and you’re left scratching your head book an appointment with us today. We’ll inspect your machine and find out the cause in no time.
