Dce33a1bb ice maker makes ice but doesn't stay frozen


Poor draining of water in the ice bin will cause a high rate of ice melting, Remember this is not a freezer but an ice maker. If the machine is making ice OK but it is melting to fast then check to make sure the bin is draining all the melt off and not letting water stand in bin causing ice to melt fast.

My U-line makes ice but it melts right away.


If unit is making ice and is melting before it fills bin up in 24 to 36 hours then it is taking to long to make ice. check the condenser coil and clean it out. if coil is dirty than it will take longer to make a batch of ice.

Kitchenaid stand alone ice maker makes ice and melts all the ice


Is it melting through heat or spilling water onto the ice already made? I suspect the latter, in which case suspect a blocked overflow drain

The ice maker makes ice and fills the ice bin but every few days the ice melts and creates a frozen ice scicle path to the lower tray and all the ice has melted and frozen again below the ice maker.


The problem with the ice melting points toward a cooling problem in the freezer. This could be caused by several different problems. Dirty condenser coils below the refrigerator could be contributing to this problem. I recommend checking and cleaning these coils if necessary.

Check the door seal on your freezer. A leak through the freezer door seal may be allowing warm air to enter the freezer and melt the ice.

Make sure that your temperature control is set properly.

If these tips do not help resolve the problem, it is likely that you have a component failure or a sealed system problem. The thermostat could be bad. You could have a condenser or evaporator fan problem. You could also have a defrost system failure that is causing your cooling problem. A weak compressor would also cause this symptom.

Seems to make ice but will not keep it cold therefore it melts. It does this about 3 or 4 times a year but after staying off it will start working again


The only thing that keeps the ice cold is the ice itself. If the icemaker isn't making ice fast enough then the ice will melt before more ice drops to keep it cold. In other words the motor ice the slower the ice melts. Now if the door gasket isn't sealing properly then the ice could melt to fast. Also the ice is going to melt some and when it does the water has got to drain out the bottom. If the water doesn't drain the ice will be sitting in water and will speed up the melting process dramatically. I hope this helps!

Melting/refreezing ice in the ice makes


If the ice is the only item that appears to be melting or defrosting. I would believe the most possible issue. The icemaker is leaking intermittantly into the bin and freezing the cubes inplace.

Ice maker stopped making ice. I had to melt ice


Jim, you will need to replace the heating element and most likely once this has been replaced, your ice maker should work properly unless the ice broke another part on your ice maker.

I would start with the heating element first.

Just contact us at:

http://www.fixya.com/repair/d499389-accurate_appliance_repair_service with your model number and we will get the correct part out to you asap!
We look forward to getting your ice maker working properly again soon!

Thanks, Ella

Ice maker will not make ice. no ice is being made. no water appears to be in ice cube making area. can hear a ticking noise from icemaker area


Carefully pour water from small glass into ice maker, until the cavity is near filled. Wait a few hours. If it dumps ice, you can usually rule out the ice maker.
If ice maker dumps, then it will be either a bad water valve, Ice building up in fill pipe going into the icemaker, or blocked water line that runs from your water source to the machine.
Caution. If the fill tube going into the ice maker is filled with ice do NOT
use heat such as a hair dryer to melt it. It will melt things you do not want to melt. If it is this problem, you must also replace the water valve because it is leaking slowly causing your problem.
Lastly, in rare cases, the microswitch in the ice maker fails and does not allow water to enter the icemaker.
