Ice makers in your freezer provide the convenience of having a supply of ice on hand without the inconvenience of having to fill ice trays at you kitchen sink.
Freezer Ice Makers
These ice makers are found in your freezer compartment and provide a small amount of on demand ice for your family. The ice is either dispensed from your refrigerator's door or from the ice storage receptacle inside your freezer.
Ice Maker Problems
- No ice
Make sure your freezer temperature is set correctly, it must be between 0 - 5° F for the ice maker to perform correctly. Additionally, check to see the ice maker is in the operation setting. If the arm is moved beyond the indent, this turns the ice maker off as a safety feature.
- Water is not flowing into the Ice Maker
The inlet valve is usually to blame. When this valve malfunctions, there is no water supplied to the Ice Maker.
- Ice cubes are malformed or small
There is probably inadequate water pressure supplying your Ice Maker. This low pressure condition may be caused by a clogged water filter which is preventing proper water flow.
- Ice cubes are too large
If your cubes are oversized, a leaky or malfunctioning water inlet valve may be to blame.
- Poor ice cube production
If your refrigerator is in an excessively warm environment, ice production will decrease as it will take longer for your unit to produce a batch of ice.
- No ice
The inlet water temperature may be too high or your unit may have failed. If there is ice in the tray and your unit is not producing ice, the tray heater assembly, which slightly warms the cubes to enable them to be extracted, may be malfunctioning or have failed.
