Icemaker Not Producing Ice
If your icemaker is not producing any ice:
Ice production is dependent upon the temperature of the refrigerator.
The refrigerator and icemaker must be at proper temperature.
- The recommended fresh food temperature is 37 degrees F; the freezer temperature is 0 degrees F.
- The icemaker must reach 16 degrees F before a cycle will begin.
- If the temperature in the freezer is too warm, ice cubes will take longer to form or may not form at all. Try adjusting the freezer temperature.
- A low food load in the freezer can affect the production of ice. More food in the freezer allows temperatures to remain more stable.
- If there is new construction in your area, there can be more sediment entering the water system. This extra sediment can clog your filters more frequently than the recommended 6 months.
- Check for ice that may be in the way. Use caution: the icemaker mold may be hot. See also Refrigerator Icemaker Cubes Won't Drop From Mold.
