Why Has My Ice Maker Broken Down?
There are several parts that can cause your ice machine to malfunction, and if found to be defective, they can possibly lead to other problems. It might be that the filter needs replacing, the ejector needs servicing, or the water line needs repairing.
However, whatever damage there is, please don’t attempt any repairs yourself, because this could be very risky if you aren’t trained. It may surprise you to know that close to twenty percent of electrocutions in the past decade were caused by at home repairs.
Common problems, troubleshooting, and repair
Ice maker won’t Turn On
A component that can prevent the operation is the control arm, which pauses the machine when the ice bin is full. Prior to calling us, you can ensure that the machine hasn’t been paused. You can reset it manually if that’s the case. If, however, the problem remains unresolved, it might be that the filter, waterline or inlet valve is broken and needs replacing.
Ice maker doesn’t make ice
When your ice machine fails to make any ice, then it might be that the supply line is frozen. If there is still no water or it doesn’t look right, then please contact us. If your machine isn’t making as many ice cubes as it’s supposed to, then you can identify this early on.
If you have an in-built ice machine in your refrigerator, then any leaks will obviously be inside the refrigerator; with an independent model, you’ll find water on the floor. If either of these applies, then please make sure that your appliance is level, and make sure that the bin is properly aligned with the funnel. If your appliance is perfectly level, then it’s time to contact us.
Please don’t disregard water leaks. Not only will they turn into a more serious problem, but more seriously, they can cause damage to your home.
Is A Replacement Necessary?
Generally, ice makers only last about five years or just after, and unfortunately, once that time has expired, the machine may frequently break down due to the wear and tear of the components. Our technicians at Will’s Appliance Repair can advise when it will be more cost-effective to replace your appliance.
