The Common Ice Maker Faults That We Repair
The following are some of the common issues we see with ice making appliances. If your appliance experiences these issues, call us ASAP.
High freezer temperature
If your ice maker is attached to a freezer, and the temperature of the freezer is higher than 10 degrees F, it most likely won’t make ice cubes. You can test this with a thermometer to see the temperature of the appliance. If it’s anywhere above 0 degrees F, lower the temperature settings.
Then wait. After a few hours test again and see if the ice maker produces ice again. If you still experience issues, we are on hand to help and troubleshoot the appliance issue.
No ice in the ice maker tray
Usually, this fault happens in the instance where no water is able to get to the appliance. This could be due to the water pressure being low or the water valve being defective.
Often when a valve is malfunctioning it’s due to the buildup of minerals, which blocks the valve and stops the release of water. However, the issue can also be due to a failure in electronics. Our engineers are trained to pinpoint the reason for the issue and give you a cost-effective solution.
Ice machine doesn’t eject ice
If your ice machine is making ice, however, won’t release it, the main culprit will be the assembly for the ice maker. It could be just one single internal part that’s having issues, but usually, with ice makers, the main assembly will need to be replaced instead.
This is often due to parts on their own being hard to source and so it’s often cheaper to replace the entire assembly as many brands and models are similar.
The ice maker is leaking
A leak is the worst kind of fault with any appliance, it can ruin walls and floors, and even other appliances. But before you call an expert, there are a few things to check. Make sure that your appliance is level on the ground and inspect the supply line for water for any external damage.
Often with these appliances, there will be a cup aligned with a water funnel. Make sure that this is aligned. If you’ve checked the above then give us a call, we’ll inspect and give you options going forward to get it sorted before the end of the day.
Other culprits include thermostats, control boards and switches (which you should ensure is in the correct position).
