How to troubleshoot and repair common occurrences

Malfunctioning Ice Maker

The control arm changes position to signify a full ice bin which notifies the maker to stop making ice until some has been depleted. If it stays in this state or is moved by hand then that's a cause for concern.

The ice maker needs a proper water feeding system to work properly so make sure there's no debris in the filter or water line. The water inlet valve or door switch could be impeded/malfunctioning stops your maker from producing ice.

Cleaning these entrances and exits or replacing non-working parts will be the fix for most cases.

Leakages

If you have leakage in your freezer or on the floor, it usually means your fridge isn't on a balanced surface. The supply line could be damaged too but if you're unsure then calling us to make an inspection would be your safest bet.

Ice looks funny or tastes off

The inlet valve, water filter or supply line might need fixing or replacing if your ice tastes strange or is oblong in shape. The dispensing apparatus also might be filled with some sort of goop which causes the weird taste.

The thermostat, ejecting motor, circuitry or mold heater are usually the culprits of weird ice ejections but some problems are a bit more multi-faceted than that.

DO I need to replace it?
