Common Ice Machine Problems & How We Can Help
When it comes to ice makers, many common problems can arise, leaving you with weak ice production or no production at all.
Here are some common ice machine issues that we can repair:
- Clogged Filter. One of the most common issues is a clogged water filter. When this occurs, the ice maker won't produce ice because there isn't enough water flowing into the machine. Replacing a clogged filter is simple and can be done quickly by one of our professionals.
- Frozen Water Line. Another problem faced by ice makers is a frozen water line. The cause of this issue is the temperature being too low inside the freezer, and it can result in no ice production. We can adjust the temperature and remove any debris or ice buildup affecting the line's flow.
- Broken Water Inlet Valve. A malfunctioning water inlet valve is yet another issue that can cause your ice maker to stop producing ice. This valve is crucial to the ice-making process. Any fault can cause insufficient water intake, leading to a hollow or small ice cube decrease or a total halt in ice production. We can fix or replace the faulty inlet valve without any issues.
Fortunately, if you experience any of the above-stated issues, Mr. Appliance of Oshkosh can help. We’re experts at identifying and addressing ice maker problems and are dedicated to maintaining your appliances' peak performance.

Frequently Asked Questions
My ice maker isn’t making ice. What is the problem?
Is your ice maker not producing ice as it should? Don't worry, there are a few simple DIY troubleshooting tips you can try before seeking professional help.
Here are five things you can check:
- Check the Water Supply. Ensure the water supply line to the ice maker is connected and not blocked or kinked. Verify that the water valve is turned on.
- Inspect the Water Filter. A clogged water filter can hinder ice production. If it's been more than six months since you last replaced the filter, consider installing a new one.
- Clean the Ice Maker and Bin. Remove any ice or debris that may be blocking the ice maker's mechanism or preventing ice from dispensing. Clean the ice bin to prevent any contamination.
- Adjust the Temperature Settings. Make sure the freezer temperature is set to the appropriate level (typically between 0°F and 5°F or -18°C and -15°C) for optimal ice production.
- Reset the Ice Maker. Locate the reset button or switch on your ice maker and give it a reset. This can help resolve minor issues and kick-start the ice-making process.
If these DIY tips don't solve the problem, it may be best to call a professional appliance repair service like ours for further assistance.
Why is my ice smelly?
Believe it or not, smelly ice is a common problem. Usually, smelly ice is due to food odors in your freezer and refrigerator. Your freezer and refrigerator share the same air circulation. The odors from improperly sealed food in your fridge can find their way into your ice.
Make sure all of your stored food is in air-tight containers. We also recommend putting some vanilla extract into a paper towel and placing that in your freezer to help absorb some of the odors.If these tips don’t work, give us a call to schedule an ice machine service.
