An ice maker is one of the most convenient appliances to have in your kitchen. However, if your ice maker get stuck or fails to produce enough ice, it can be a major pain. Although there are several reasons why it may stop working, here are the two most common causes of a broken ice makers and how to fix them.
Common Problem #1: Ice Maker Gets Stuck
An ice maker that gets stuck typically means there are ice clumps that are impossible to dispense. Ice clumps are caused by ice melting and refreezing. To fix this problem, remove the ice storage bin and break any clumped up ice. For a long-term fix, we suggest using the ice maker every day.
Common Problem #2: Ice Maker Not Making Ice
This is perhaps the most frustrating problem to have with your ice maker. The root of the problem is typically a failing water supply valve. If the valve become worn out or stuck, ice cannot be produced. Investigate the water supply line to determine if the valve needs to be replaced. If so, we recommend calling our experts for assistance. If the water supply valve is properly working, the next troubleshooting step is replacing a clogged filter. Filters are likely to become clogged over time, which blocks the flow of water into the ice maker. Check the manufacturers guidelines to determine how often to change the water filter.
