Few things are more frustrating than finding out your ice maker is not making ice and you’re stuck with a warm drink. Without the ice maker, especially during the summer months, you’ll be forced to make ice manually or pay high prices for it at the nearest store. And those backyard summer parties? Not having a properly working ice maker take a lot of the fun out of them.
One way to ensure that nothing goes wrong with your ice maker when you need it the most is to watch for symptoms that something might be going wrong. There are a few signs that you ice maker may need repair, so watch for these things and call for a service repair appointment as soon as you notice one or more of these symptoms:
- The ice maker is not making ice.
- The ice is discolored, cloudy, or has white particles in it. (Don’t use this ice! It could be contaminated with chemicals or bits of plastic.)
- The ice smells or tastes bad.
- The ice maker is noisy or making grinding sounds.
- The ice cubes seem to be smaller than usual, or it gets stuck in the ice molds because they are overfilled.
- The water line to the ice maker is dripping or the ice maker is leaking.
- The ice maker doesn’t seem to be getting any water.
