Should You Call Kyle’s?
The certified technicians at Kyle’s Appliance Repair are competent, prompt, and friendly. We are happy to come out and deal with any issue either large or small. But, what ice maker problems can you fix yourself and when should you call us? Here are some suggestions.
Check the Pause Button
Yes, we are serious. Maybe someone pushed the button by mistake. Or, the device might have paused itself because the bin was full. This is an easy fix that can avoid a service call.
What is the Thermostat Setting?
You might think that colder is better. But, that might not be what the manufacturer recommends. Check the manual. If your setting is too low, water will freeze in the filler tube.
The Control Arm Has to Be Adjusted
Your machine usually has a control arm which moves when the bin fills. It pauses the device when it things the ice maker is full. Check the arm after emptying the ice bin.
Clear the Filter
When you have a clogged water line or filter your ice maker does not get water and cannot make ice. Check your instruction manual for how to do this.
When all of your tests so far have not cured the problem, you may have a damaged valve. Call us for a same-day, prompt, and easy repair.
Unplug the Ice Maker and Turn off Its Water
Do this to make certain the water line has not frozen. You can use a hairdryer to speed up any thawing. Just be careful not to let the electric hairdryer come into contact with anything wet!
This might fix the problem which you will know when you turn the power on and the ice maker starts to run. When this does not work or the water is discolored, call us for help
There Is Less Ice Production than Usual
This is typically because of the line freezing or being clogged. Follow the advice we mentioned.
Leaking Ice Maker
Check these things:
- That the fill cup is correctly aligned
- That your refrigerator is level
- That the ice maker lines are not twisted or damaged
Unless you fix this right away, call us for repairs. You do not want a leaking ice maker to result in mold buildup in your refrigerator or structural damage to your floor!
