Ice Machine Repairs

Keep Things Cool in Your Home

Ice makers and machines automatically make ice in the shape of cubes, nuggets, or flakes depending on the machine—without the need for repeatedly filling ice cube trays at your kitchen sink. This is an extremely convenient appliance that provides you with a large supply of ice when needed, whether for the big game, a special celebration, or regular family dinner. Most homeowners have at least a smaller ice maker conveniently located inside their refrigerator’s freezer. Just as with larger ice makers and machines that stand alone, these appliances can run into problems on occasion.

The good news is that our technicians are here to help.

Types of ice machines we service include:

  • Freezer ice makers
  • Portable ice machines
  • Built-in or freestanding ice machines

Common Ice Machine Issues We Handle:

  • Your freezer is too warm.

    Temperatures must be between zero and five degrees Fahrenheit for proper function.

  • There are issues with the freezer switch.

    This switch may be either defective or accidentally shut off in some cases

  • The water inlet valve is defective.

    When this electromechanical valve malfunctions, water supply is cut off.

  • Low incoming water pressure.

    Inadequate water pressure, less than 20 psi, can restrict water supply to your ice machine.

  • Malfunction with the door switch.

    The door switch turns on the freezer light and shuts off the ice maker. If the switch fails, the dispenser won’t turn on.

  • The ice level control board fails.

    The ice level control board turns off the ice maker to prevent overflow when levels of ice reach a certain point.

  • The water filter is clogged.

    Clogged filters can easily prevent the flow of water to your ice maker, preventing ice production.

  • The mold thermostat is defective.

    This device ejects ice cubes once they reach proper temperature, preventing advancement and refills when defective.

  • The ice maker produces malformed ice cubes.

    Low water flow from a clogged water filter or supply line issues may cause the evaporator to freeze, creating undersized cubes or halting production.

  • There is water leaking in the machine.

    If cubes appear oversized, a leaky water inlet valve may be to blame.

  • Poor ice cube production.

    If the environment your machine is in is too warm, production will decrease, as the ice maker takes longer to produce a batch of ice.

  • No ice cube production.

    Water may shut down if temperature is too high due to other appliances, such as a dishwasher, pumping hot water into the cold water line.
