Many people who own ice makers don’t fully appreciate how important the appliance is until it abruptly breaks down and suddenly there’s no ice in the house. Things are worse when that happens in the middle of the summer when the sweltering heat of the sun is unbearable, and everyone needs an icy cold beverage. Of course, most top grade ice makers will rarely experience problems if they are taken good care of. But, as you probably already know, no electrical appliance is immune to problems every once in a while. The best you can do is know what signs indicate that your ice maker may be on the brink of breaking down and what to do when you see those problems.
Common Ice Maker Repair Issues
Ice makers in a wide array of models, sizes, and brands. However, the problems that these appliances experience are generally similar, regardless of what make or brand the ice maker is. Some of the commonest ice maker problems you are likely to encounter include:
- Problems turning on and off
- Issues with ice production
- Defects with the water inlet
- Faulty switches
- Leaking water
- Low incoming water pressure
- The ice level control board fails to function
- Discoloration in the ice
- Malformed ice cubes
- The door doesn’t open or close properly
- Clogged water filter
- Defective mold thermostat
- Too loud noises from the ice maker
There are, of course, many other problems that your ice maker can experience depending on how you use it, its age, and general wear and tear. The best thing you can do as soon as you notice that your ice maker has a problem is to address it appropriately and quickly. If you don’t, the problem will only get worse, and soon you may have to pay much more to get the appliance running efficiently again.
What to Do
Once you’ve discovered that your ice maker is no longer functioning like it used to, there are two things you can do to address the problem. The first is to buy a new ice maker. While doing this solves the ice maker repair issue you are experiencing immediately, it also means that you get to spend a lot of money on a purchase you may not have planned for. Moreover, what’s the point of replacing an ice maker that still has years left in its life? That brings us to the second option: repairing the defective appliance. This move is the more sensible and affordable one. Most experienced appliance repair technicians can provide a lasting solution for any problem your ice maker is experiencing.
