Ice is a very important commodity when the weather heats up. An ice maker was designed to make sure that people have a continuing supply of ice that is always ready when it is needed. Many refrigerators have either an ice maker that is added on later as an accessory or it is built right in. You may get rather desperate if your ice maker stops working right in the middle of summer. It may take a long time to get an ice maker repairman to your house to repair your ice maker. However, it may be possible to fix some of the problems that may occur with your ice maker yourself. But, when you are in doubt, call an Harris County Ice Maker repairman. The following are some repairs that are normally within the average home owner’s ability to repair.
You may already know an ice maker fits inside the refrigerator freezer. In order to make ice, the ice maker needs a constant supply of water. Water is supplied by a tube to an inlet valve which is connected to the ice maker. When the ice maker needs water, an inlet valve opens and the water is permitted into the ice cube mold, where it is frozen into ice cubes. Inside the unit there is a thermostat that senses that the ice is ready.
After it senses the correct temperature, a heater is activated which cuts through the ice surface and the ejector blades that are built in push the ice cubes that are ready into the bin. This ice making cycle continues until the ice bin is filled. The entire operation shuts off after the bin is full.
One problem that often occurs is when the ice maker ether makes way too much ice or won’t make ice at all. There have been other cases where small and hollow ice cubes were made. There are a number reasons for this. When troubleshooting, be sure to keep the user’s manual that comes with the refrigerator or ice maker in front of you, so that you will better understand the testing and repair procedures.
For safety reason, the first thing you should do is to disconnect the refrigerator from its power source. The reason for this is obvious; To prevent you from getting electrocuted.
If the ice maker is making too much ice, there may be a problem with the shutoff switch and shutoff arm. To test both the components you must first remove the face plate on the ice maker and test the components by using the test probes underneath the ice maker. If either or both are damaged, you need to replace them. There may also be a problem with the thermostat. Test and replace the thermostat if you can determine that it is bad.
Another common problem with ice makers is that it makes too little or no ice. This can be the result of a number of causes such as a broken or clogged water supply line, an inlet valve that is faulty, or a faulty shutoff arm. You should also check out the line that supplies the water for leaks or kinks that might be blocking or preventing water flow. If the supply line is beyond repair, purchase a new supply line and replace it. Another reason for a low supply of water may also be a faulty water filter. That also needs to be checked and replaced if necessary.
If you can’t find a problem with the water supply line of the shutoff, another reason for the lack of ice could be that the freezer temperature to be too high. Make sure that the freezer temperature is high enough to make ice.
Other than these things, check the water inlet valve and ejector motor as they may need replaced. If you are getting ice cubes that are too small may be that the ice cube size controller may be set wrong, which you can change. In the end, if you have checked out all the likely culprits and you still can’t figure out what the problem is, it is time to a repairman.
Any repairs that are beyond what has been described above normally require taking the disposal apart and unless you’re an expert, this is best left to Appliance Repair Houston.
