Ice maker runs but produces very little ice
Is the room temperature hotter than normal? Room
temperatures of more than 90°F (32°C) will normally reduce
ice production.
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.
Is the condenser dirty? Dirt or lint may be blocking the
airflow through the condenser. See "Condenser."
Is there scale buildup in the ice maker? 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.
Is the drain cap securely in place? 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 if it is loose.
Grid is not cutting ice sheets
Is the cutter grid securely in place? Check the cutter grid
harness plug to make sure the connection is intact. See
"Interior Components" section of "Cleaning" for instructions
on cutter grid removal.
