Ice Box? You must not be from the Glen Burnie, Maryland USA area.
Ice boxes or ice maker have several controlling factors. Some are repairable. Here is how they work:
1.) Your ice maker will harvest ice cubes 8 to 10 times within 24 hours.
2.) You have a control module in the front of your ice maker. This is like a small control board. It has a motor and plastic gearing system. It also control the lever system to fill your ice bucket.
3.) The control module tells the solenoid valve in the lower back right hand side of your unit to open and fill the ice cube tray.
Then you have a temperature sensor that tells the control the ice cubes are frozen.
4.) You either have a flex ice cube mold that will activate or a heater under the mold tat will turn on for a set period of time to release the ice cubes from the mold.
Send me the model number of your unit and then we can trouble shoot together.
This is normal if you have previously used the crushed ice mode. The refrigerator will continue to dispense crushed ice for some time until the reserves are depleted. If this continues for a longer period then shut down the refrigerator and remove the dispenser compartment, clean any remaining ice and reinstall it. Start the power supply and wait 5 hours for the ice to form. Use the cube mode and you will surely obtain ice cubes.
Check to make sure the water supply to the refrig is good and the inlet screen where the water line connects to the refrig is clean. You can change the amount of water fill by pressing the button on the left side of the ice maker. (indicator lights above button show setting) Selecting "Ice Plus" on front of dispenser panel increases ice production for a 24 hour period. Ice maker should produce 6 cubes per cycle, aprox.. 100 to 130 cubes in 24 hours depending on freezer compartment temp, room temp, number of door openings, etc.
Assuming the temp inside the freezer is at around 0 or -2 degrees, it should dump ice every ~50 minutes or so. Again, depending on temp's, an Ice Bin should fill within 24 to 48 hours.
If your freezer temp is running at around 10 degrees, everything will obviously still be frozen (below 32), but the ice maker will take longer to freeze the water than it would if it were at 0 degrees.
Open both doors and place the palm of your hand on the partition between the freezer and Fresh Food compartments... (where the door gaskets seat when they're closed). The temp of the partition should be about 5 or 10 degrees warmer than body temp., If it's hotter than that, you found the problem. Either the condenser coils are dirty and need a good cleaning OR your condenser fan motor (the fan in back, near the floor in the compressor area) is failed or about to fail.
