The freezer compartment may not be as cold as previously. Check the condition of the door seal of the freezer compartment or try setting a colder temperature. The Ice Maker has a Thermostat that senses cube temperature and controls a heater switch which turns the ice tray heater on to free the cubes for dump. The problem could be that this thermostat, if failing, is delaying the cycle.

Not making ice as fast as it use to


Typical freezer temperature is around -18C or '0 'F. First check that this is true in your unit. If the freezer is not cold the ice maker will not perform as fast. The colder the freezer the faster the cycle.

Make sure that air flow around the ice maker is clear.

If air flow is good and freezer is around "0" the thermostat that actuates the ice maker cycle could be defective. Replace!
Hope this helps?

Ice maker not producing any ice and need help


Have you tried turn it off and totally defrosting the unit. Sometimes the ice making mechanism leaks a bit of water where it shouldn't and it just frezes the mecahanism.

Dce33a1bb ice maker makes ice but doesn't stay frozen


Poor draining of water in the ice bin will cause a high rate of ice melting, Remember this is not a freezer but an ice maker. If the machine is making ice OK but it is melting to fast then check to make sure the bin is draining all the melt off and not letting water stand in bin causing ice to melt fast.

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

The icemaker is not making ice as fast as it would before. It dumps a tray of ice about every 4 hours.


Make sure that there are no kinks in the water line.
Next, inspect the feeler arm of the ice maker and make sure that it is down and not blocked by any ice cubes. If it's raised, it has turned the ice maker off. This arm needs to be in the lowered position to activate the ice maker An over-abundance of ice in the bin will make the arm stay up as a safety feature to keep the ice maker from making more ice than the bin can hold.

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.

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.
