How do I get the refrigerator to dump ice


We first need to know if your referring to the ice tray dumping into the bin. Or the ice dumping out into your cup at the front of the refrigerator. If at the bin I maybe the the defrost element on the bottom of the tray that heats up while the fingers spins around to push the ice out from the tray into the bin has burnt out and needs replaced . Most modles require you to replace the entire tray. However if your referring to the front of the refrigerator at the dispenser for you glass. It could be (1) That the trigger switch is bad or touch pad is bad. But if it makes noise as if its trying to bring the ice but it's not then that's not your problem.(2) it could be that the Alger Screw that moves the ice from the chest to the front could have sheared a pin striped the spines or broke at the knuckle.you would only hear the motor running with no ice movement if this was the case(3) and most likely the spout/opening that allows the ice to get from the bin to the Auger has restriction/ frozen block do to improper drainage during defrost cycle. Simply remove the bin inspect and use warm water to clean out obstruction. Hope this help.

Will not produce any ice unless i switch it on and off and it will only dump once or twice


Hi, I have worked on many Hoshizaki machines. Is this model air or water cooled? If it is air cooled, check that the back of the condenser is clean for a start. 99% of the time, as this machine is making ice but not dumping it on its own, is if it has not been cleaned in awhile, will cause this problem. You need to pick up a gallon of nickel safe ice machine cleaner to run through the system in the cleaning setting. Also, the plates that the ice forms on before it goes into harvest must also be cleaned and any other water tubes you can remove by hand to run bottle brushes through them. You wouldn't think that this can cause a problem, but it is the main problem we run up against. You will notice a slime build-up on different parts also. This nickel cleaner can be purchased at a a/c refrigeration parts house or a appliance parts house. It is concentrated and you should always have it on hand. Do this, and get back to me to update me on the units operation. Good Luck,
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

We have a Whirlpool K40 Ice Maker but it seems to have stopped producing ice. The motor is running but there is no water coming into the machine & therefore no ice is being frozen & cut by the...


a few things to check, first off is adequate water supply(obviously).. next check your drain system, if your unit gravity drains look for a blockage, but if you have a secondary drain pump to pump away water check for proper operation, if that pump fails the machine will no longer let water in( thinks it full and no need to produce more ice if it cant get rid of old water

Small production of ice? What should be the normal production of ice?


The way I understand how Hoshizaki machines work, the model number is usually what the unit will produce, in pounds of ice. Their manual states: "Approximate production/ 24 hours @ 70 degrees air/ 50 degrees water (incoming)" So, yours should be producing 450 pounds a day, approimately. Since I can not pin point your exact model, I found one that is close. It states: "Ice Production per cycle: 6.6 pounds, 360 pcs." Again, it is not you exact machine. Their web site does not show this model either. So this is the best info I can get for you. Hope this helps.

Thin Ice on Whirpool Ice Maker


Hi

If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, 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.


Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful and revert for further assistance.
