Maker is producing ice very slowly. Can't even fill half the bin in 24 hours. The temperature in the freezer is fine, water is getting in the mold, air circulation around the unit is good. What else can we do?
Answer Hello Gayle,
The temperature in the freezer needs to be checked. It needs to be between 0°F and 15°F for optimum production. Also, if the water to the unit is connected to the hot water connection, this can hamper the units' production ability. The water connection has to be from the homes' cold water system. If this is good, you will need to replace the icemaker assembly or the icemaker thermostat.
Can you adjust icemaker to make more ice?
Answer Hello Dennis. No, there is no adjustment for that. Make sure the freezer is 0 to 5° for the proper ice production.
Ice maker not filling with water. Door water dispenser is working fine. Filter and water solenoid WR57X10007 replaced last year. Water tube to ice maker not frozen. Need recommendation on what to do/check as to why ice maker is not getting water?
Answer Hello Ted. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
