Question about Freezers
My ice maker takes about 2 hours to make 8 cubes. Was working fine but
last week it started this problem. What steps should I take to
troubleshoot the problem.
Check the condenser coil it maybe plugged up use a hand brush to clean out coils and if you can use a air compressor to blow out coils this is the best way and this coil is used to remove heat from the system if it looks clean you can shine a flash light on the opposite side to see the light though the coils to check deep inside other then that the water vale may have a slight leak allowing warm water to seep though prolonging the freeze time or you may have a compressor with weak valves or low ref. start with the maintenance thats the first thing people usually over look the dirty coil that you should clean once to twice a year that can over heat the compressor and cause it go out.
