Common Ice Maker Issues We Can Repair
Most of the most common issues with ice makers can be repaired quickly and painlessly by our team. These include:
High freezer temperature
If your freezer is running at 10 degrees Fahrenheit or above, you will not get any ice cubes. If you notice that your freezer thermometer is creeping up, give us a call.
No ice in the ice maker tray
In order to put ice in the tray, water needs to be able to access the valve. if this isn’t happening, you may need a repair.
Ice machine doesn’t eject ice
This could indicate a problem with the ice maker assembly, such as the motor. In some cases, the whole unit needs to be checked and replaced, and this requires a professional touch.
The ice maker is leaking
Noticing a puddle in the freezer or on the floor is often the first indication that something has gone awry. The first thing to check is that your appliance is standing on a level surface and that the water supply line is intact, with no damage, pinches or bends. You should also check that the water funnel and fill cup are aligned; this can be a common reason for leaks.
If you have tried all of the above and had no success, give us a call and we can identify and solve the problem in no time.
There is mold in the system
All ice makers come with a mold thermostat to keep them free from mold, but if this is defective, it could accumulate in the ice maker and impede the correct working of the mechanism.
