Usual problems, repairing them and the process of troubleshooting
Ice Maker has stopped working
Sometimes on an Ice Maker, the arm for control can be stuck in place or has moved manually, this stops the ice maker from working. This control arm is used when the ice bin fills up, it moves and pauses the ice-making when full.
Another common issue is blockages in the waterline, meaning the appliance doesn’t get the water to make any ice, thus making it unable to work. Along with the water line becoming blocked, so can the valve for water inlet. Alternatively, the switch for the door could be stuck, suspending the ice makers’ standard operations.
Cleaning the appliance thoroughly and installing replacement parts (if damaged severely) can resolve these issues.
Leaks can be a disaster, causing harm to other appliances and items around. If the appliance is not level or aligned correctly, this could be the most common cause. Alternatively, there could be damage to a supply line, usually requiring a replacement. Ensuring that the ice maker is level on the ground usually resolves the issues, however, if that still doesn’t fix it give Jake’s Appliance Repairs a call today. We’ll have it back up and running in no time.
Ice tastes strange/won’t come out/looks different
Another common issue is with the ice itself, on the chance that the ice from your maker looks strange or tastes different, it’s possible that a supply line, valve or filter may need a replacement or repairs. Often it can be the case that there is something stuck in the dispenser too.
If your ice maker is not ejecting ice cubes correctly the reasoning could be endless, however, the mold heater, motor for ejecting or a thermostat may be the cause.
Ice makers, if looked after correctly and supplied with high-quality water could last 5 years or more. Any longer than that and you may find it breaks down often, usually meaning that replacement is required. Luckily, we’re here to help you locate a good replacement and come out to your house to install it.
