Ice Maker Repair
The summer is never a fun time without any ice-cold beverages. That's why an icemaker is such a luxury to have. When it breaks down, you don't have to resort to drinking lukewarm drinks all summer.
Give Fix-it Appliance Repair a call. Whether your ice maker is a portable machine or attached to your freezer, we have the experience and the tools to repair them. Even if the brand is older or not as well known, we are confident that we can repair it.
Our technicians have years of experience under their belt and can deliver high-quality service.
Why is it not working?
A clear sign that your ice maker is not working is if it's higher than five degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius). There is no concrete answer as to why it's broken down, though.
You might be considering DIY repairs because it will save you money at the moment. However, we don't recommend this.
Ice makers need specialized tools to repair them and, most of the time, only professionals own them.
You also risk causing more damage to the machine, which will result in costly repairs later on down the line. Certified technicians have the know-how to get the repairs done efficiently, quickly and, most importantly, safely.
Ice Maker Won't Turn On
Most ice maker brands come with a control arm that moves as the ice bin fills. Once it's full, the control arm pauses the machine. Make sure that the arm hasn't been moved out of place. Empty the ice bin if necessary.
The filter, water line or inlet valve may have become clogged and need a deep cleaning. The ice machine won't work if it isn't receiving any water.
If a deep cleaning doesn't help, then you may need to repair these parts.
Leaks are usually due to the refrigerator or the ice maker being placed on an uneven surface. The supply line may also have been compromised. If everything seems normal, then give us a call. We'll fix the leak before it causes any serious water damage.
If your ice maker makes ice, but it looks or tastes weird, you may need to service the supply line, water filter or inlet valve. Something may have also become caught in the ice maker mechanism.
If the ice maker doesn't eject any ice cubes at all, you may need to look at the ejecting circuitry, ice mold heater, and thermostat.
Is it Time for a Replacement?
As long as you're regularly maintaining your ice maker and supplying it with good water, ice makers can last for five years. Any older than that and it's time to consider a replacement. We can help you find a great replacement and even install it.
