Why is my Ice Maker Breaking Down?
An ice maker has many connecting parts. When one breaks, the others suffer, making it difficult to diagnose an issue. This is why it's not recommended that you attempt any repairs yourself. Professional repair companies have specialized tools as well as the knowledge of how to carry out the repairs safely. Within the past decade, over seventeen percent of electrocutions could be attributed to household appliances. It's best to leave these repairs to the professionals.
Common Issues that an Ice Maker Can Face
Most models of ice maker have an adjustable arm that stops the machine once the ice bin is full. First, make sure that the pause button hasn't been accidentally pressed. Also, check that the ice bin isn't full. If everything else is normal, then the issue may lie in the filter, inlet valve or waterline. Call us and we'll help you repair it.
Ice Maker Won't Produce Ice
The waterline might have frozen. If you thaw the waterline and the water still won't run or the water looks strange, then call us. We can quickly pinpoint the issue.
A built-in ice maker will leak into the refrigerator and a stand-alone unit will leak onto the floor. No matter the model you own, make sure that they are sitting on a level surface. Make sure that the filling cup is properly aligned with the funnel. If the level isn't the issue, then give us a call. Water leaks might seem harmless, but they can grow into more serious issues, such as water damage.
Is it time for a Replacement?
Ice makers have a relatively short lifespan; approximately five years. If it's more than five years old, it's time to replace it. Not only can our technicians help you choose a replacement, they'll even help you install it.
