Having an overflowing ice maker can mean one of two things. Either your ice maker is producing normal size ice cubes but in excess, or there is an overflow of water into your ice maker so that there is now a large chunk of ice at the base. Honestly, neither problem is ideal.
However, you’ll be pleased to hear that both are an easy fix. To stop problems like this occurring again in the future, we recommend regular maintenance on your kitchen appliances.
There are a few reasons for an ice maker overflowing, so try these simple fixes yourself before spending a fortune.
If your machine is making normal-looking ice but just in huge quantities, check the position of your ice bucket. More often than not the bucket will have been knocked out of place. Ice will then fall outside of the bucket and overflow.
Simply put the bucket back into the correct position and see if this stops the ice maker overflowing.
If you have the issue where you are getting a sheet of ice at the bottom of your ice maker, your fridge is probably dispensing too much water.
You can adjust the amount of water dispensed by changing the fill time. The usual fill time is 7.5 seconds, so make sure you adjust the water fill time to watch this. You can adjust the fill time from the front of the ice maker. Simply screw off the cover and you should see the option to adjust it.
If changing the time does not solve the problem, the water valve needs to be replaced.
