Why did my ice maker become faulty?
An Ice Maker may look to be a simple device that shouldn’t break down, but there are many reasons why one could fail and often these cause more problems if left unattended to.
The assembly for the filter is often a cause of issues when faulty, but so is the assembly for the ejector, the water valve or the line supplying the water. So as you can imagine, these machines can be rather complex.
We always recommend against any kind of DIY repairs, for good reason. Water and electrical voltages do not mix. A staggering 17% of all electrocutions in the United States were caused by appliances in homes and around residential zones. So please do not attempt any major repairs, for your own safety.
The common issues and repairing them
My Ice maker won’t work
The first thing to do if your ice maker isn’t working is to ensure your control arm is in the right position, consult your manual for this. Also ensure that if your ice maker has a pause function, that it isn’t set. If these do not resolve the issue for you, you could have a part that needs replacement or repairs. We are on hand to help.
The Ice Maker is not making ice
In the case that your appliance is not making ice, it’s possible that the line providing water could be blocked, ensure that there is no frost blocking it. If the water is still not running or the water is discolored, call Jason’s Appliance Repair. Early signs of this issue can be seen in the form of the ice maker producing fewer ice cubes than it should.
Possibly the most dangerous fault you can have with an ice maker, regardless of if it’s a fridge ice maker or a stand-alone ice maker. This can be quickly investigated by ensuring that the appliance is level on the ground. Ensure that the bin for filling up is aligned correctly with the extraction funnel. If this is still happening afterward, call us as soon as possible before the leak causes damage to other appliances or the flooring around it.
At which point should I consider a replacement?
If maintained and looked after, an ice maker can last for around 5 years before having issues. This isn’t very long for an appliance and is exactly why regular service is important to ensure you get the most out of your machine. Once older than 5 years, you’ll start to notice the machine breaking down and having faults.
