Issues And Problems
There are a number of different problems that can plague your ice maker and our techs have seen it all. For each problem, there are a few possible causes and our techs know how to diagnose the source of the problem and get it fixed quickly and efficiently.
It is possible that there is a leak in a line that will need to be repaired or replaced. Before giving us a call, you should check to make sure that the portable ice maker or the refrigerator is sitting on a level surface. If you have checked to make sure that it is level and the leak persists, give us a call.
It's Just Not Working
One of the possible causes of this problem is a clog. It can be a clogged filter, inlet valve, door switch, or water line. If one of these things is clogged, the ice maker is not going to be able to receive the water that it needs to make ice.
Another possibility is that the control arm is stuck in the full position. When this happens, the ice maker is being fooled into not making ice because the control arm is relaying that the bin is full.
The Ice Looks Weird/Won't Come Out/Tastes Horrible
If the ice maker isn't ejecting ice cubes, it is likely because the ejecting motor/circuitry, thermostat, or the ice mold heater is broken or malfunctioning.
If the problem is that the ice looks or tastes weird, it is possible that there is something lodged in the ice dispenser mechanism. It is also possible that the inlet valve, water filter, or the supply line needs to be repaired or replaced.
Should I Get A New One?
The average lifespan of an ice maker is about 5 years and once it reaches this age, it is going to start needing repairs and maintenance. If your ice maker is 5 years old or older, you may want to consider a replacement.
