Ice makers and machines provide you with a large supply of ice whenever you need it. Ice machines are extremely convenient appliances when you're getting ready for a family picnic or a special celebration. Some homeowners have small ice makers in their freezers, while others have larger, standalone machines that make large supplies of ice. Both types of ice makers can run into problems now and then.

Ice Machine Components
Several parts work together to ensure your ice machine runs properly and efficiently. Because ice makers need water to make ice, problems with a home’s water supply can sometimes prevent your ice maker from working efficiently. Other issues can stem from not choosing the correct mode of operation, malfunctioning thermostats, and water freezing before it reaches the cube stage.
Checking the user’s manual can sometimes lead to a simple solution. When that doesn't work, it's time to call in a professional. Some problems with ice makers could be much more significant than they originally appeared. Several different things can go wrong with your residential ice machine. Common ice machine issues we repair at Mr. Appliance of Bozeman include:
- Your freezer is too warm – Temperatures in your ice maker must be between zero and five degrees Fahrenheit to function properly.
- There are issues with the freezer switch – This switch could either be defective or accidentally shut off. Our technicians can help.
- The water inlet valve is defective – When this electromechanical valve stops working, the water supply is cut off.
- Low incoming water pressure – If you have inadequate water pressure (less than 20 psi), the water supply going to your ice machine can be restricted.
- Malfunction with the door switch – The door switch turns the freezer light on and shuts off the ice maker. If this switch fails, the ice dispenser won’t turn on.
- The ice level control board fails – The ice level control board turns off the ice maker to prevent overflow when ice levels reach a certain point.
- The water filter is clogged – Clogged filters in the ice machine can prevent water flow to your ice maker, ceasing ice production.
- The mold thermostat is defective – Once they reach the proper temperature, this device ejects the ice cubes, preventing advancement and refills when defective.
- The ice maker produces malformed ice cubes – Clogged water filters or supply line issues may cause the evaporator in the ice maker to freeze, creating undersized cubes or halting the production of ice.
- There is water leaking in the machine – If your ice cubes appear to be oversized, a leaky water inlet valve might be the problem.
- Poor ice cube production – If your appliance's environment is too warm, ice production will decrease because the ice maker takes longer to produce a batch of ice.
- No ice cube production – If the temperature is too high due to other appliances, such as a dishwasher, the water supply will shut off.
