Your ice maker is an appliance feature that makes life that much more convenient. When you need ice for your drinks or even to soothe a bump, you need a reliable ice maker. Of course, your ice maker works hard to give you a regular supply of ice, and there are a number of things that can go wrong and professional repairs are required.
What to check when your ice maker breaks down
Before calling a technician to perform a professional diagnosis and repairs, it’s good to check a few things yourself first. Check your water supply and make sure that it’s turned on. Your ice maker cannot make ice without a constant supply of water. You can also check the chute or lift up the mechanism to check the area where the ice drops. If any ice cubes are stuck, it will prevent more ice from coming out the chute. The water line can also sometimes freeze which stops the water from filling the ice trays. Check the freezer temperature setting and make sure that the line is properly insulated. If you cannot check this for yourself, you will need to call a professional. If none of the potential problems apply to your ice maker, then an expert should be called to perform professional repairs.
Some problems not caused by the ice maker
Sometimes you may experience problems that are not necessarily due to a faulty ice maker. For example, if the ice smells or tastes strange, it could mean that the water filter needs to be replaced. If there are white specs in the ice, then this could indicate a build up of calcium carbonate. This is another problem that can be solved by using the right water filter.
When to call a technician
If the ice maker is not releasing ice cubes, the dispenser component might need to be replaced. If the ice maker continues to make ice cubes non-stop, then it could mean that the sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced. In some cases, the ice maker does not work at all. If you don’t notice any obvious causes of this problem, there could be a number of reasons for such a failure. It’s best to avoid taking your ice maker apart and skilled appliance repair technician right away.
