SOURCE: Ice Maker too slow

bayfishr, I'll try to give you an idea on how this thing works and let you do some checks. The cycle is controlled by temp. The harvesting process begins when the IM thermostat closes signaling the harvest temp has been reached. The closed thermostat supplies power to the IM motor and heater. Therefore the colder you keep it, the faster the production unless something has failed. I see a lot of heaters fail. You can test this. When the IM starts it cycle, test the voltage from L to H on the module,they will be marked. Should read 120V. The heater on the bottom of the mold should be getting hot. Disconnect the harnes and ohm it. Should ohm out at approx 72 ohms, same test points. If this checks good, check the center wheel on the module itself. Two clips keep the wheel in place. If one is cracked off, the IM will not fucntion properly. Other than colder temps, there is no way to adjust the speed of the cycle. Keep the flap in front of the ice-maker down so that the cold air is drawn across that IM. Catriver.

Check the cam wheel beneath the front cover of the icemaker it is probably not turning.

Hi!!! Also make sure that your freezer section is bet'w 5 to 10 degrees if not then you have a frig problem..If you have 10 degrees or so then you have an icemaker thermostat control problem.You have to buy another icemaker unless you can replace the icemaker thermostat inside of it..Good luck..

My IM115 frigedaire ice maker, doesn't seem to be making ice fast enough


Hi,

The key to ice production is temperature, so if the unit is running at "0" the fan also has to run to cool faster. That a good look at these items and see where the issue may be. In this environment point blank information is the only way anyone could assist you. Lack of information causes no response or incomplete answers. Check the temperatures also check the ice maker for pealing or flaking mold issues. Good luck

ICE MAKER THERMOSTAT


You should be getting a fresh batch of ice every two hours or so. If it is taking longer than that, then the freezer temp is not going down low enough, fast enough for the ice maker to work properly. Also check to see if the heater element for ice removal is working - if it has burned out the new cubes are stuck in there and it can take a while for them to be freed up so a new ice making cycle can commence.

Not making ice fast enough


Good day,
Assuming the cubes it's making are the proper size, the speed the ice maker produces ice is determined by the temperature in the freezer.
When the ice maker harvests a batch of ice, an electric heater heats up the whole ice maker.
There is a thermostat embedded in the ice maker. It must cool back down to approx. 12 degrees before making the next batch. The colder the freezer compartment, the faster the cycles.

If the cubes are too small then that is usually caused by a blockage in the water filter if your unit has one, or the water valve that feeds water to the ice maker is getting weak, or lastly the water supply to the machine has become partially restricted.

On extremely rare occasions the thermostat built into the ice maker goes out of calibration which can cause a delay in cycling and requires the ice maker to be replaced. But again, it is a very rare occurrence.

Seems to make ice but will not keep it cold therefore it melts. It does this about 3 or 4 times a year but after staying off it will start working again


The only thing that keeps the ice cold is the ice itself. If the icemaker isn't making ice fast enough then the ice will melt before more ice drops to keep it cold. In other words the motor ice the slower the ice melts. Now if the door gasket isn't sealing properly then the ice could melt to fast. Also the ice is going to melt some and when it does the water has got to drain out the bottom. If the water doesn't drain the ice will be sitting in water and will speed up the melting process dramatically. I hope this helps!

Ice maker not making enough ice. does +/- change timeing of ice maker off of 6 hours


no. That screw adjusts how long the water valve stays open, thus how big the cubes are. Some icemakers only make 4-6 batches a day, depending on how well the freezer is working and holw fast it recovers. The internal thermostat of the icemaker has to reach approximately 14 degrees before it will begin dump cycle. Clean the condenser,(the fins or coils outside the refrigerator) by vacuuming or blowing out and see if that improves ice maker production

Side by side gallery ...water leak


  • it sounds like the water valve is not closing fast enough.
  •  this will cause the ice-maker to overflow a little.
  •  your ice-maker may have an adjustment on it to control how long it keeps the water valve on. 
  • it should be a screw with a + and - sing on it. it may be under the ice-maker plastic cover.
  • if it keeps doing it then you may need a new water valve.

Ice maker


I would replace the water filter on the back of the refrigerator.they eventually become clogged and prevent the normal water flow to the ice maker.

Kenmore side by side - icemaker seems to run too fast because the ice cubes are often hollow and they stick together in large clumps. Everything else in the freezer is frozen solid, so I know the freezer...


IF FREEZER IS A THE CORRECT TEMP/ O-10 DEGREES, THE FREEZER IS NOT THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A THERMOSTAT IN YOUR ICE MAKER, IT IS NOT ADJUSTABLE. IT IS A SMALL BI METAL SWITCH THAT TRIGERS ICE MAKER WHEN IT REACHES ITS PROPER TEMP. THE PROBLEM IS, IT IS TRIGERING IT AT TO LOW OF A TEMP.NOT ALLOWING THE ICE TO FREEZE SOLID. IF YOU CAN HANDLE IT CHANGE BIMETAL SWITCH OR CHANGE ICE MAKER ITSELF.
