My ice smells moldy


Icemakers need to be cleaned about every 90 days, especially if it is a bin type unit that holds recirculated water in a tank which is then pumped over a grate to make ice. You didn't indicate what type of ice maker you have. Many manufacturer produce a cleaning produce for their ice makers. Here is a link to the Whirlpool/Kitchen Aid product:
http://www.amazon.com/Whirlpool-4396808-Machine-Cleaner-16-Ounce/dp/B001ECQ1YM/ref=sr_1_1/177-5038340-6980446?ie=UTF8&qid=1397503407&sr=8-1&keywords=Ice+Machine+Cleaner

It is made primarily for a bin type ice maker and does an adequate job if you use it on a routine basis (i.e., every 90 days).
If your commercial ice maker has removable parts, remove all parts that have direct contact with the ice. Wash these parts in hot, soapy water and use a brush to remove any dirt or mildew from the parts. Remove any ice or water storage bins and wash them in soapy water. Rinse each part thoroughly to remove all traces of soap. Use a 50/50 vinegar/water solution to break up any hard water (calcium) deposits on the parts. Sanitize your ice maker parts by soaking them in a solution made of 1 oz. of bleach and 1 gallon of warm, clean water. Allow the parts to soak for at least 30 seconds and leave them to air-dry.
Clean and sanitize ice makers that do not have removable parts by running two or three cycles and discarding the ice. Check you manufacturer's instructions for how to clean your ice maker. Some machines may not tolerate diluted bleach solutions, so check the sanitizing solution specified by your instruction manual through the machine. Always throw away the first batch of ice made after cleaning. Also change your water filter, if so equipped.

Ice and water keeps coming out


Cup lever isn't returning to the off or close position completely. Suggest checking for rusty spring, dirty parts restricting lever and other parts there from moving freely. Could be the switches are worn out as well. Dis-assemble and clean all parts and inspect or replace old worn switches. Inspect ice drop/ flap door for mildew, sticky residue from drinks and ice build up.

Poor quality ice


Is the ice too small or is it dirty in appearance? If it is too small then the 1.4 inch water supply line may be pinched or clogged. Trun off the water to the unit and remove the line connected to the rear of your fridge. Then get a large bowl and have someone turn on the water supply. If there is sufficient pressure then more than likely the inlet screen to the ice maker water valve is obstructed and will require cleaning. Follow the input water line to the ice maker water valve. Some valved can have the screen cleaned with the valve installed by removing the input line and then the input screen. You can gain access to the screen by removing the flexible back panel, remove it by using a pointed tool on the outside of the screen ede only. Then wash / or scrub it clean with your fingers while running water over it. Reinstall the screen, reconnect the valve input line and then reconnect the water supply line and turn on the water supply. It can take several hours before the unit starts making ice cubes again as you have intorduced air into the system and it will self purge during the next few ice making cycles. You should have the correct sized cubes within 24 hours. If the cubes are dirty then go to any appliance parts supply store, purchase a charcoal filter and install it just above the inlet supply line connection.

We have the Kenmore 106.5703.601 side by side with an ice maker. We lost power for a whole day. The power is back, but the ice maker does not dispense ice. Water is dispensed through the door fine, and...


I think if you unplug the ice maker and remove it from the freezer to let the ice melt and dry out the Ice maker may start working again once you put it back in the refrigerator. If not we will need to check the thermostat inside the ice maker. Try that first and let me know the results. We will get it working I just need you to do this step by step until I locate the problem. But until the ice maker is dried out I cannot see if the thermostat will call for water when plugged back in. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Freezer running, ice maker not producing, hot in middle divder.


The dividing section should be warm, to keep unit from sweating. (by design). Cleaning under the refrigerator was what cooled it down. You cleaned the condenser. The condenser allows the refrigerent to cool down. When it was dirty, the condenser could not get enough air to cool down.
