Ice makers are a luxury that many homes did not have just 20 years ago. Today, though, they have become a part of everyday life for most Americans. You probably think little about your ice maker—that is, until it suddenly stops working. A broken ice maker is a relatively common problem, and America’s Appliance Repair is here to help.
Common Ice Maker Problems
Ice makers are surprisingly complex devices, with a lot of components involved in freezing water in just the right shape and size and then dispensing it to a holding bucket or into your glass. Here are some of the most common issues:
Too much ice
Ice has a foul taste or smell
Ice stuck in dispenser
Water leaking from ice maker
Can I Fix It Myself?
Sometimes. If your ice maker stops working, make sure it is switched on and is cooled to around 16 degrees F or below. If the ice tastes or smells bad, or is discolored, throw out the ice, wash the bin, and change the supply filter if you can easily reach it.
Beyond these simple fixes, though, it is best to call in a professional. Because ice makers are complex systems, messing around with one component could cause problems further down the line. In addition, ice makers mix power and water, which can be a dangerous combination.
