Question about U-Line Icemaker
Water freezes under ice bin. Where does it come from?
Has been serviced 4 times with different techs.
They clear out defrost water drain and/or replace drain heater. It is OK for about 3 months, then same problem. Ice maker runs until full bin and replaces what we use, so it is usually full. The older/lower ice is covered with 'frost'. The U-Line people say they have not had this problem from anyone else, but continue the warranty.
All units made today have defrost timers to clear ice from the evaporator. Some of the ice sublimates...turns directly into humidity in the air in the box. It re-condenses in the ice tray area. It is possible that nothing is wrong other than excessive opening of the bin area or the defrost timer is running slow and staying on too long. You may also be consuming the ice too slowly. Can you either change the amount of ice in the bin by adding something to simulate part of the ice content or shut off ice production against low demand?
