Question about Freezers
I just got an old ice machine (for free). I plugged it in and it turns on but nothing happens but it hums. If you push the ''clean cycle button'' you hear it click or try to cycle or something. We didn't have it hooked up to an actual water source, but just some tubing into a bucket. I just didn't know it would even turn on. What is the best way to test an ice machine and how can I tell if it works? I don't get the feeling that it's completely broken, but I don't quite know where to start.
First off, you cannot use a bucket of water and a line to get the ice machine to operate. Ice makers don't have a suction pump in them, they rely on having a water supply line with pressure to push the water into the machine.
You can connect the machine to a water line and see if it will cycle, that is, take water into the unit without leaking.
Beyond that, in order to check out the unit, you will need to provide the Brand and model number in order to find a user's manual, which will provide all the details on operation and installation for it.
The good news is you might have a nice ice machine for free.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
