Marine ice maker problem

The machine (a U-Line) makes ice just fine, but it seems to be leaking enough water around the edge of the plastic bucket to encase it in solid ice. Any ideas on how to fix this? Is this something I can fix myself, or should I call a technician? Thanks much!

Re: 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.

Seems like my icemaker overflows when filling. I have an ice build up around the plastic box. How can I adjust water

There is not an adjustment. The ice maker dump arm has a cam on it that engages the water fill switch. switch is bad or ice maker motor has a bad spot in it .

Cu2026 not making much ice

Sometimes the water inlet gets clogged. This happens a lot if u are using well water. Take the water line loose from back of fridge. fold the tube to stop water from leaking on floor if it is a plastic tube. have a bucket handy and put line in bucket let the water flow. It should come hard and fast. If not go to water valve where it pirces the main water line. check the hole and make sure it is large enough to supply the water. I had to take a drill bit and make the hole a little larger. That fixed mine. If that is not the problem then I would replace water inlet valve on the fridge.

U-Line Icemaker B1-95BTP Not making ice water present, not cold enough, only 35 degrees

You should get between 10-15 degrees in the bucket. If the frost is thick then shut down and defrost. If no frost make sure fan and compressor is running. Yes to that then you need a tech to verify a sealed system problem.

Not making ice unless I pour water in tray, water does not flow from small plastic line that feeds tray. I did clean screen at suppy line.

It could be the water valve or water switch in the icemaker. Now it doesnt call for water until the thermostat is satisfied.Now if you pour water and it goes thru and dumps into the bucket I would try to change the valve.

Make sure the curtain is not torn and there are no leaks from the resivoir. If ok check to make sure you have enough water pressure to the machine. Make sure you have enough water passing through the valve during harvest cycle. To check... turn the timer cam to harvest cycle. Water should come in quickly behind the curtain on the right side and the timer should advance three minutes to freeze portion of cycle and stop running. Water should spray and form ice for approximately 25min. Then the timer advances for 5 minutes into harvest cycle and it refills with water again.
