There are some factors that can cause an ice maker to not work. If it seems that the ice maker is not producing enough ice, low water pressure or a faulty water filter may be the cause. When the ice maker produces small, cloudy or agglomerated ice, it can be something as simple as a dirty water filter, low water pressure or high mineral deposits in the water. In the case of a frozen ice cube, do not rush to make a service call when your ice maker stops working. Try these simple troubleshooting techniques first to save your money and time.
Water Fill Tube:
Look at the ice mold in the ice machine. If the ice is absent or too small, the next stop is the water filling system: the filling cup and the tube at the back of the ice machine. If they are frozen, check if there is a blockage in the tube that could prevent water from flowing into the filling cup in the way it is supposed to. Is the inlet valve free of obstruction? Is the water pressure normal? Except for those malfunctions, the problem could be solved by unplugging the refrigerator, removing the outlet pipe that runs between the filling valve and the ice maker and cleaning or replacing that tube.
Ice and Water Filter:
If your refrigerator is the type that offers filtered water for drinking or for ice, it could be that your ice machine is not removing ice as it used to be because the filter has clogged. A dirty filter reduces the amount of water entering the icemaker, so replace that filter twice a year or more frequently if your area has hard water. Refer to the owner's manual in "Maintenance" to find the location of the filter in your particular refrigerator; it is usually an easily accessible place, in the open area of the refrigerator that stores food.
Ice Maker Assembly & Replacement Ice Maker:
If there are no ice buildup problems or you suspect problems with the water supply, you may have a problem with the ice machine control. The most common type of ice machine used in modern refrigerators is the heat release ice machine. The test procedure for the heat release ice machine involves a live voltage test; therefore, it should only be performed by a qualified professional. However, the problem may also be related to the water filling system or the ice maker assembly.
