The Common Ice Maker Issues and troubleshooting
Problems with Ice Makers are common, but some of the usual ones we see are:
1. Not making ice cubes
If your ice maker is unable to produce ice cubes like it used to, it’s most likely an issue down to the supply of water. If the ice cubes are small or it’s pushing nothing out at all, check your supply line for water. You should see the supply line connected, ensure that they are not blocked or have been damaged.
If the filter is damaged or blocked, it could be the source of water supply problems. You should be hopefully replacing the filter every 6 months, this is recommended. Our team of expert techs is here to see what the cause is and figure out the best next steps.
2. The appliance is freezing
A common issue we see with Ice Makers is when water gets frozen before getting to the mold, this leaves ice cubes being unable to form or the appliance presents you with a block instead of a cube. More times than not, it’s the thermostat with an issue. Although it’s worth checking what temperature you have set the freezer to.
When setting the temperature, it’s always best to consult the appliance manual to make sure you’re picking the right temperature, within the range. If all is correct, and the issue is still ongoing. Contact us, we can help.
3. The ice isn’t breaking away from the appliance
Although still usable to some extent, this common issue causes a lot of frustration. Normally this happens when the mode setting is incorrect. In which case, consult the manual for the appliance and ensure the settings are correct.
If your ice maker has an arm on the outside to set the ice production, ensure the arm isn’t raised as this usually stops ice from being made.
When this control arm is in a downward position, ice will be produced. This is a common issue we find when people call us. If this is all as it should be, but you’re still having the issue, call Jake’s Appliance Repairs today.
