How to fix an ice-maker that's not making ice?

How to fix an ice-maker that’s not making ice?

 

 

Keep in mind that making ice takes time. A newly installed or restarted appliance will take time to be able to produce ice. 

 

The amount of ice your refrigerator can produce is listed in your manual. If you’re having trouble finding your manual, download it here using your product’s model number. If your appliance is not new or reactivated, see if one of the following will solve the problem.

 

 

 

Check the water connections 

 

If you notice a decrease or failure in your fridge’s ice making ability, check the water connections. These vary depending on the model. Follow the instructions in your appliance’s user manual to see how and where the connections are. If you’re having trouble finding your manual, download it here using your product’s model number. Check that these connections are correctly in place and not obstructed. 

 

 

 

Make sure the ice-maker is filled

 

You need to pour water into the ice-maker manually if you own a non-plumbed refrigerator. Check the water reservoir and fill it if it is empty. 

 

 

 

See if the ice-maker is obstructed

 

The openings of the ice-maker may be blocked. When ice does not come out of the ice-maker, check for any ice is stuck in the connections leading to the ice dispenser.

 

 

 

Make sure the ice-maker is active

 

Your refrigerator’s ice-maker may be switched off. Check if it is running and turn it on if necessary. To see how to check and turn on your ice-maker, consult your user manual. If you’re having trouble finding your manual, download it here using your product’s model number.

 

 

 

Make sure the water tank is filled 

 

Make sure that your refrigerator’s water tank is full. A depleted water supply may be the reason your refrigerator is having problems making ice. 

 

 

 

Avoid opening the freezer door too frequently or keeping it open for long periods

 

Your refrigerator needs to keep the air inside the freezer at a certain temperature to be able to produce the proper amount of ice. If the freezer door is opened too frequently or is kept open for long periods, the warm air that enters the freezer will increase the air temperature inside. This might slow down the ice-making process.
