Make sure your water source is completely open and your hoses are not clogged.

JCD-23 making too little ice


Check the water flow to the ice maker. Turn the supply water off, loosen a fitting near the ice maker and then turn the water on. You should get plenty of water. If it is slow, check the filter.

Icemaker is slow in producing ice


If your icemaker is producing ice, but it is slow, there are 2 likely explanations.
1. Temperature. Water freezes at 32 deg, but the icemaker won't eject the ice until it gets below 10 degrees. If you always had good ice output and all of a sudden it has slowed down, you're temperature is a little higher than ideal. Check for a door seal not making good contact or try dropping the temp in the FREEZER side a couple degrees
2. New model. Most new refrigerators make ice much slower than older models to meet energy efficiency guidelines. This is not a repairable issue.

Icemaker has always been slow. It produces ice, just a couple or 3 times a day. We have to keep our old fridge running just to get enough ice... Cubes are full size, freezer is 0 degrees, not much...


Hi,
The main reason behind an icemaker to make ice slow is the freezer temperature. It needs to be below 10 degrees. Also check the water inlet valve. Water is controlled by a timer and if its obstructed or slow filling, it will not make ice. You could also have a bad motor, defrost heater, or sensor. If these items fail, it usually won't make any ice. Check to be sure the electric plug from the ice maker is plugged in and check the water flow. However if it is filling up with water or if it just has a small amount in the cube maker. If it's making some ice, it's probably not a defrost problem. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Also replace the freezer's water filter, as clogged filters block water flow. Set the ice maker arm to "Off," and then twist the hanging filter cup counterclockwise to remove it. Rinse the cup under running water and discard the old filter cartridge inside. Slide a new filter cartridge into the cup and reinstall the cup assembly in the freezer.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Icemaker is very slow in making ice


Hello, When an ice maker is producing ice poorly or when it produce a few cubes or none or when the cubes are too small, it is usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.
Firstly, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve, then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow, If the flow is poor you need to, repair, clean or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Thanks

The fridge is not cold enough


you might want to try and clean the condensing coils on the outside of the unit, located either behind or underneth, this will really hinder performance. Also there is a fan located near the compressor on some models, make sure this is working. And check the fans on the inside (good air flow).

Slow ice maker,poor water dispencer flow


If you used a self piercing saddle valve to hook up to the water supply it is probably the source of your problem. These should never be used. You need to install a drill in type which will increase the water flow and probably never clog.
