Ice makers are an integral part of many people’s lives. They are an easy way to cool drinks or add ice to everything else you might need quickly, taking it without any trouble out of ice trays. But if your ice maker starts acting up or breaking down, it is an expensive mistake to ignore the problem until the unit’s condition worsens. This is why it is important to monitor your ice maker for signs that it needs repair.
Some signs that your ice maker may need repair to involve, but are not limited to:
- The ice maker is not filling up. A blocked valve or faulty inlet valve is usually the cause of this. In each case, a professional can identify and fix the issue.
- Too much ice in the tray. A defective level control board is likely the problem. A professional should diagnose and correct this problem.
- The ice cubes are not forming properly. It’s generally caused by low water flow.
If you locate any of these issues or others in your ice maker, it is always best to contact a professional as soon as possible. Leaving unattended these or any other possible problems can lead to further, more costly problems with the unit.
