Hi Jorgen
No there isnt a way to adjust the torque. When I get this problem it's usually a leveling issue.Make sure the screws on the wall(2) is tight and not pulling away. And make sure the unit is leveled. The motor is a 3 rpm motor and I wouldnt try to change any rpms because it could cause a flood.
Tell me if this doesnt work.

ULine CLR2160S00 was making ice then the icemaking started to slow then none at all had refrigerant replaced last year and everything else seems to be working fine,,, just no ice


Does the ice maker get water? Could the fill line be blocked? I found on my freezer ice had formed at the end of the tube and once I removed the ice it has worked fine since.

Our icemaker makes cubes, but leaks water from the ice tray area, creating a 2 inch block of ice in the bottom of the ice cube collection bin each night.


Have a look at the manual on page 6 for adjustment procedure.

Also, your leak may be due to a water valve that is not able to turn off 100%. Valve replacement would be necessary. Unplug your icemaker electrical, and empty the ice. Leave the water turned on. If you keep getting water collecting in the bin, you are likely looking at a water valve replacement (not hard at all, just inconvenient).

It does sound as if you may need a new ice maker. Other than that does the compressor come on to keep the ice cold? If so is it making any type of noises beyond the typical hum?

My uline suddenly stopped making ice. the cubes are very thin although i adjusted the knob to the maximum thickness. Sometimes it works for a day or two then stops again


You should never have to adjust it to the highest setting. You could have a sensor problem or a sealed system problem Or you could of used the wrong cleaner and now the ice isnt sticking on the grid. You can only use the u-line cleaner.

Ice Maker


some part inside ice maker has broken. Attempt to pry off cover (or remove screws if necessary) and look for any part that has broken. I will guess the part is plastic. This same thing happened to my maker and I deduced that an item had fallen into the ice cube tray and prevented the arm from coming up, thereby allowing the tiny drive motor , coupled to a speed-reducing-torque-increasing mechanism to break a part of the maker. I actually used strong epoxy glue to fix it!
