Troubleshooting Your Refrigerator’s Ice Maker

Troubleshooting Your Refrigerator’s Ice Maker

You hold your glass against the ice dispenser of your fridge. It makes noise like it is trying to kick some ice into your glass, but nothing comes out. When you check inside the freezer, you see that the ice bin is empty. That’s not good. You’ve had it set to produce ice all night. What could be wrong? Here are a few troubleshooting tips:

  • Replace the water filter – Some refrigerators are set to stop making ice if the filter hasn’t been changed in a long time.
  • Check the freezer temp – If the temp isn’t low enough, not only will your ice not freeze but your freezer items will begin to defrost.
  • Check the line for ice – If the water line gets too cold and freezes, you will have to defrost it before you can make ice again.
  • Make sure the water supply is not obstructed – Clear any obstructions from the water line. If this is the problem, you won’t be getting any water from the fridge door either.
