Common Ice Maker Issues
There are a few common issues that we often see causing malfunctions with ice makers. The issues and causes are below:
1. Ice maker doesn’t make ice cubes!
If you’re having an issue whereby your ice maker isn’t making ice cubes, it’s often down to the water supply is faulty. If it’s producing ice but the ice cubes are tiny, take a look at the supply lines and ensure they are not damaged or blocked.
If the filter is blocked or damaged, it can cause issues with ice making as water cannot reach the appliance. Scott’s Appliance Repair has technicians who are certified and experienced at sorting filter replacements, call us to fix it.
2. The ice maker is freezing
If your ice maker is freezing, the water inflow could be frozen which won’t allow cubes to be molded and instead of the regular ice chips, you’ll get a block. Usually, this is down to the thermostat, or the fact the temperature is set too low. Take a look at your appliance manual for the correct settings.
If the temperature settings are already correct, call us and we’ll get someone out to take a look.
3. Ice cubes don’t release from the machine
This issue can be one of the most frustrating ones. Everything else seems to be working fine but the ice cubes don’t come out. This can often be because the appliance mode is set incorrectly. Take a look at your owner’s manual and set the correct settings.
If your ice machine has a control arm on the outside, this can often be moved to resume and pause ice production.
Usually, when the arm is in a downward position, ice production is suspended. This is a very common issue and usually can be resolved quickly, but if setting the correct mode doesn’t sort it, give us a call.
