Ice Production

WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before servicing.
Replace all parts and panels before operating.
Failure to do so can result in death or electrical shock.
RECOMMENDED SOLUTIONS
Check that the control is turned on.
Check that the water supply is properly connected and turned on.
If the drain cap is loose, water will empty from the water pan, and you will have either thin ice or no
ice. Tighten the drain cap.
Clean the drain tube.
Check that there are no kinks in the drain line.
Is the accelerated ice production feature turned on? This feature increases the ice production rate
to provide you with more ice in the same amount of time. See "Using the Controls."
Room temperatures of more than 90ºF (32ºC) will normally reduce ice production.
Dirt or lint may be blocking the airflow through the condenser. See "Condenser" in the "Cleaning"
section.
If there is white scale buildup in the ice maker's water or freezing system, you should clean the ice
maker. See "Interior Components" in the "Cleaning" section.
If the drain cap is loose, water will empty from the water pan, and you will have either thin ice or no
ice. Tighten the drain cap.
Ensure that the cutter grid is securely in place and that its harness plug is connected. See "Interior
Components" section of "Cleaning" for instructions on cutter grid removal.
Check that water filter is properly installed.
