Why Did Your Ice Maker Break Down?

Many times a person is wondering if they need a professional to fix an appliance like an ice maker. Very often, ice maker and other appliance problems are simple if you know how the machine works and what to look for. If you don’t and try fixing it anyway, you will probably make the problem worse. Using the services of a professional who can diagnose your problem and fix it on the spot is typically cheaper than DIY repairs that backfire.
Hire an expert for convenient, safer, time-efficient cost-effective repairs. Working with delicate parts in an ice maker or other appliance can be dangerous as well as difficult. Professionals know the proper safety protocols to avoid electric shocks and other problems. And, a professional is not going to make the issue worse which, unfortunately, is too often the case with DIY repairs.
Common Ice Maker Problems
Your ice maker stops making ice when the bin is full. The full bin causes a control arm to shift when turns off the ice making. When the arm does not shift back, ice-making does not restart.
A clogged filter or water line block water from getting to the ice maker. This can happen to the water inlet valve too. And, a door switch malfunction will also turn off the ice maker.
Fixing any of these problems is easy and simply requires going through a basic check-list and then fixing the issue at fault. In rare cases a part damaged and then we need to replace it.
Leaking Ice Makers
If the ice maker is not level, it typically leaks water onto the floor. We fix this problem by properly leveling the appliance. Also, a damaged supply line may leak and need replacement. Leveling is something you can do yourself. Otherwise, call us at Brad’s Appliance Repair in Galveston, Texas for same-day help. We will be pleased to fix the issue before the leaking causes other problems.
The Ice from the Ice Maker Will Not Eject or Looks and Tastes Bad
When there is a problem with the inlet valve, supply line, or water filter, your ice will be discolored or have a disagreeable odor. We will be pleased to evaluate this problem and replace the offending parts.
When your ice maker does not eject ice cubes correctly, there is a problem with the thermostat, ejecting motor, ice hold heater, or the circuits themselves.
Should I consider a replacement?
Ice makers usually last for about five years when properly maintained. When you start needing frequent repairs in an older model, ask our experienced technicians for help in selecting a new model and installing it for you.
