Question about U-Line Refrigerator Ice Maker

1 Answer

We have had the ice maker for three years and it worked perfectly. It is now making too much ice. The bin will overflow without intervention. Previously some ice would melt and then new ice would replace it. How do we get our machine to maintain the right amount of ice in the bin?

    HI I would need to know what model you have. I can give different suggestions depending on your model. It could be a sensor problem with a clear ice or it could be an adjustment on the bin arm so it would shut down sooner. The arm is the only thing that turns the icemaker off on a regular icemaker. So lets start with the model number.

Locate the ice maker speed control, either a dial or a lever, and set it to "medium".

Ice maker is overflowing


Older icemakers have a bar that drops from above your ice bin; once the bin is full the bar is raised and trips turning the ice maker off so that it won't dump. If your's is this style, try manually pushing the free end of the bar upward so that it locks in the upward position. Newer ice makers with the ice bin in the door have a small panel that moves to the open position when the door opens and closes when the door closes. Mine also includes an optical sensor that is visible when this panel is in the closed position. Try placing a non-clear tape over the optical sensor (don't know if that will work or not but worth a shot). If effective in stopping the ice flow then call a repairman. If none of this works, turn off the water supply coming out of the wall to your freezer.

GE ice maker overflowing


Either your water control valve is leaking while off or ice has formed in the fill tube for the ice maker causing the water to spew in directions other than the ice maker or both. A new water control valve may be needed. Part number WR57X10050 Let me know if this helps. Sea Breeze

Ice maker overfills and leaks into the ice bin.


I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.

Doesn't fill up


sounds like the ice is not releasing from the freeze plate before the waterpump comes back on. you can turn off icemaker - dry the plate with a towel - take fine steelwool and go up and down on the tray until all discoloration is removed and the plate is shiney - empty bin - flush plate and bin - turn back on and see if ice falls onto cutting grid either right before or right after waterpump comes on.

Ice maker won't stop making ice


OK, there's two possible issues but you have to figure out what is happening. Does the ice maker continue to make ice forever and would fill up the whole freezer section in time OR does the ice maker just "over make" ice that overfills the bin which then falls out? If the ice maker just keeps making ice you need the motor module replaced but if it can be turned off by moving the lever up then you need the "modified lever assy." that is on our service bulletins.
