How to Troubleshoot Your Ice Maker

Not sure why your ice maker isn’t working? Consider these common issues when troubleshooting your ice maker.

1. Leaking
If your ice maker is leaking, you should shut off the water to the ice maker until you resolve the issue. You should check the water valve for leaks, as water can seep from the fill tube extension. Ensure the water line fittings are secure by checking each connection along the water line and inspecting them for leaks.

2. Broken Water Valve
Another reason ice makers stop working is a broken water inlet valve, which supplies water to the ice maker. The valve needs 20 pounds of pressure per square inch to function. If the water inlet valve is getting power and has the correct pressure, it’s likely broken and you’ll need to replace it.

3. Control Arm Malfunction
Most ice makers have a control arm that switches the ice maker on and off. If you accidentally hit the control arm, you could turn your ice machine off without realizing it. Carefully check the control arm or level to ensure that it’s positioned correctly.

4. Frozen Ice Maker
While you want your ice maker to keep your ice cold, you don’t want it to be so cold that it freezes the water before it even makes it to the ice mold. Check your manufacturer’s directions to make sure that the ice maker is set at the correct temperature and isn’t too cold.

5. Old Water Filter
When’s the last time you changed the filter on your ice maker? It’s a routine maintenance task that can easily slip your mind, but it can cause your ice maker to malfunction if it’s been too long. Check on the status of your water filter and change it out if necessary to see if that impacts your ice maker’s functioning.

6. Broken Ejector Assembly
If your ice maker is having trouble making and dropping ice cubes, there may be a problem with its ejector assembly. The first step to troubleshoot this issue is empty, clean, dry, and replace the ice bucket. Then, reset the ice maker by unplugging it or pressing a “reset” button. Check to ensure that the ejector paddle, the flap that allows ice out of the chute, isn’t blocked or clogged with ice.

If the ice maker still doesn’t work, the gears in the ejector assembly are likely broken, and you’ll need to replace it.

7. Clogged Ice Chute
A tricky problem that happens with ice makers is that ice freezes in the chute, causing a blockage. Use a non-scratching tool like a wooden spoon to manually clear out any ice or frost clogging the ice chute. Another option is to run warm water through the chute to melt any stuck bits. Put a folded hand towel in the ice ejector and slowly pour warm, not boiling, water into the chute with the door open.

8. Internal Issues
Sometimes, a part or component of the ice maker itself will break down. In these cases, you’ll most likely have to replace your ice maker. Because few manufacturers make separate parts for ice makers, most repairs involve replacing the entire ice maker assembly.

Before you give up and purchase a new machine, though, it’s still a good idea to ask for a second opinion from a professional. An ice machine repair technician near you can inspect your ice maker, diagnose any issues, and recommend next steps.
