Question about U-Line Icemaker

1 Answer

Ice bucket/bin frozen in place

My u-line ice maker seems to supply too much water to the ice trays, as when the unit has started to freeze, there is a 1/2 sheet of ice on the bottom of the ice tray/bin, and the tray/bin can't be removed until the unit is turned off and defrosted. The unit works great except for the overfilling (?) problem. Is they're a regulator to deliver less water to the ice fillers?
Thank you so much

Mine was overfilling because the ice was getting stuck on the way out. So some stayed in the tray and when the water would refil, it would overfil and go over the stuk cubes. leaving it to overflow to the bottom and freeze like yours.

Why does water not shut off after making ice


Is the bin drain line and dump drain line tied together. If so then it is melting ice from the bin. now when ice machine starts up it will dump the old water in sump tray so it will be fresh water during new freeze cycle.

GE Monogram Ice Maker makes ice, unit doesn't cool enough


This model Icemaker makes ice by flowing water across a freeze plate. It is located in the top of the unit behind the white cover directly below the ON/OFF/CLEAN switches. After freezing a sheet of ice it releases and slides to the cutting grid. It then drops into the ice bin and begins to melt and the whole process starts over again. The level of ice in the bin is controlled by the high level sensor on the right side of the ice bin. It is a whit tube with two wires coming out of the top. Without this sensor it can overrun the bin capacity. Bottom line this unit does not freeze ice, it only holds it like cooler does.

Hoshizaki KM-1600S too much water supply


If water is standing in the bin the drain is clogged. If water is raining down into the bin, Machine may not be level or the drain on the ice machine maybe partially clogged. If machine freezes up water will rain into bin too. Water fills ice machine while in harvest and continues to fill until ice machine`s suction reaches 49 degrees and the defrost timer times out.(usually 1-3 minutes after suction line reaches 49 degrees)

U-Line undercounter frost free ice maker refrigerator


All units made today have defrost timers to clear ice from the evaporator. Some of the ice sublimates...turns directly into humidity in the air in the box. It re-condenses in the ice tray area. It is possible that nothing is wrong other than excessive opening of the bin area or the defrost timer is running slow and staying on too long. You may also be consuming the ice too slowly. Can you either change the amount of ice in the bin by adding something to simulate part of the ice content or shut off ice production against low demand?

Marine ice maker problem


Mine has been doing this for years. You can check if the door gasket is good and sealing well. If not you can oder one and easily replace it yourself. Also, if I did not run my generator when I took a short ride ice inside would start to melt while the unit is off, usually around the case perimeter which would drip down to the bottom under the bucket and then when it was put back on it would refreeze under the bucket like a block and make it impossible to remove. I would sometimes just turn it off, put the ice in a ziplock in my frezzer to save it, let it defrost to get the bucket out and dry up the standing water.
