8. If the room temperature will drop below 32°F (0°C), remove
water from the drain line.
For ice makers with a drain pump installed:
Plug in ice maker or reconnect power.
Turn ice maker off and remove all remaining ice from ice
Pour 1 qt (0.95 L) of water into the ice bin near the drain
and let the unit stand for approximately five minutes. This
will allow the water in the bin to drain into the drain pump
so that the pump will remove the remaining water from
the ice bin and the drain pump.
Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.

Ice Maker Operation

Your ice maker will not operate
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped? Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the
problem continues, call an electrician.
Is the room temperature cooler than normal? Room
temperature must be above 55°F (13°C). Otherwise, bin
thermostat may sense cold room temperature and shut off
even though the bin is not full of ice. Also, unit may not restart
once it does shut off.
Does the red light come on when the Clean button is
pushed? The ice maker is receiving power but may need
cleaning. See "Cleaning."
Does the ice maker have a drain pump? If there was a large
amount of water added to the ice maker, wait a few minutes
for the drain pump to clear. If there is still water in the bin,
check to see whether the drain hose is kinked.
9. Before using again, clean the ice maker and storage bin.

NOTE: All components of the ice maker are permanently
lubricated at the factory. They should not require any additional
oiling throughout the normal life of the machine.

Make sure that the drain cap is tight and the water drain
pan pump is securely attached to the water pan.

"Leveling." If the ice maker is level, and the problem persists,
run a cleaning cycle. See "Cleaning."

Is the water supply connected? Make sure the water supply

thin ice or no ice. Tighten the drain cap.

kinks in the line.
