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.

I have a 12 year old Sub Zero model 624. The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice. And actually, when opening things up we can see ice cubes have formed but they just haven't dumped into the...


This is the procedure but yours seems to be a faulty Icemaker and needs to be replaced since your freezer is cold enough to make ice rapidly.

Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.

Could be you need to give the coils on the bottom a good cleaning.

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).

Water flow on my Maytag ICE20 is very slow.


The orifice into the filter is getting clogged. A toothpick or small paperclip will clear it.

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.
