Why Is My Ice Maker Breaking Down?
Ice makers have many internal components. Many of the issues overlap, making a proper diagnosis difficult.
It could be anything from the filter to the ejector assembly. We don’t recommend that you attempt any of these repairs yourself. Seventeen percent of all electrocutions in the last decade were due to household appliances. Electrocution is a very real danger and you could put your household in danger.
Common Issues that an ice maker faces
Ice Maker Won’t Work
Ice makers come with an adjustable arm that moves as the ice bin fills. Once the bin is filled, the arm causes the machine to stop. If at all possible, manually reset the machine. If not, you may need to replace and service the waterline, inlet valve or the filter.
Ice Maker Won’t Produce Any Ice
The water line may be frozen in this case. If the water is still not running or the water looks strange, then call us. We can pinpoint the issue and find out why your machine is making smaller ice cubes.
Ice Maker is Leaking
If your model is standalone, then you’ll find the leaking on the floor. If your model is built into the refrigerator, then the leaks will be found on the floor of the refrigerator. Make sure that the ice maker is properly leveled and that the fill cup is aligned with the funnel. Give us a call if the problem persists. Leaks can lead to bigger problems and costlier repairs.
Is it Time to Replace my Machine?
Ice makers, on average, don’t have long lifespans. Even with proper maintenance, they usually last around five years. Any older and it’s time to consider replacing the unit. Call Mark’s Appliance Repair so that you can get your drinks nice and cool again.
