Why isn’t my icemaker working?
Icemakers operate between 0 and 5-degrees Fahrenheit, that’s about -18 degrees Celsius. If the temperature starts to get above that, there is a problem with your ice maker. There are a few things that can cause your ice maker to fail.
Now you are probably wondering whether or not you should call in a professional.
To answer that question you should think about 2 things. You should consider how much knowledge you have fixing these types of appliances. You should also consider how much trial, error, and frustration you are willing to go through on your own to try and fix it.

Troubleshooting Common Problems and the Repairs
Ice won’t come out, it looks weird, or it tastes bad
If the ice is not being dispensed properly, there is probably a problem with the ejecting motor/circuitry, the thermostat, or the ice mold heater.
There are times when the ice may look funny or it is not tasting the way it should. This problem is commonly due to the inlet valve, supply line, or the water filter needing to be repaired or just replaced. There is also a possibility that the dispenser mechanism is not functioning.
There are times when the icemaker may be leaking water into the freezer or onto the floor. This can be a simple fix because a common cause for this problem is that the icemaker or refrigerator containing the ice maker is not sitting level. There are other possibilities, but make sure that the appliance is level first.
Once you do this, you will want to call Burt’s Appliance Repair (480) 256-2127 so that we can check all of the lines, connectors, and fittings to find where the leak is coming from.
The Icemaker Isn’t Working At All
There are a number of different parts and components that can cause this to happen. If there is a clog in a line or filter, the machine is not going to be able to make any ice for you to put in your drinks. Even the water inlet valve can get blocked, and this will result in an ice maker that won’t make ice.
There is also a control arm that pauses the ice making process when the bin fills up and shifts the arm. If this arm is broken and stuck in the full position, the icemaker will think the bin is full and not make any ice.
Do I have to replace my icemaker?
Most ice makers have a lifespan of about 5 years with proper maintenance. After 5 years it will start to have issues and you may want to consider getting a new one. Burt’s Appliance Repair can help you find the right ice maker for you and get it installed in no time.
