How can i test the thermostat to see if thats why my ice maker wont make ice. Water is running over the plate in the back but it is not forming ice.
ANSWER Hello Randy,
If the unit is cycling across the plate then the thermostat is good. You will want to check to make sure that the compressor is running. If compressor is running then there is some type of sealed system issue. If compressor is not running then you want to make sure that the condenser fan motor is running and check to make sure that the overload on the compressor is not tripping. If relay is bad on compressor it will cause the compressor to not run and make ice.
