a fresh supply of ice, empty the storage bin and clean both the
bin and delivery chute every two weeks.
Has the wrong ice been added to the bin? Use only cubes
produced by the current ice maker.

dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
for dispenser motor to reset before using again.
