Question about U-Line Refrigerator Ice Maker

U-line bar refrig/icemaker

We have a 1999 uline refrigerator ice maker that stopped working 2 years ago. The compressor and themostat was replaced. It again, has stopped working. It is getting good power, how do I check the thermostat to see if it is working properly? I doubt it is the compressor being that it is only two years old. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your reply. I was hoping there is a way to check the themostat using a multimeter and checking the resistance. Is there a way to bypass the thermostat so I can confirm a bad compressor? The manufacturer is embraco, are the know for short lives.

    I would rather not give up so easy.

    I called the factory re: the thermostat and they informed me that I can bypass the thermostat by jumping the blue and yellow wire, which I have not tryed yet. They also mentioned, it is unlikely a compressor because the fan would be running since it is also wired to the thermostat. They believe it points more to an electrical problem such as the "control". I believe he means the temp control. How does this sound to you and can you tell me how to check it?

    Thanks again.

Hello sir/madam,

actually u cant say in a confirmed way what the problem is.

but u say ur unit does not even start., so it can be the compressor problem 90%....

because only if the unit starts we can check if the thermostat works or not.
when ur unit does not even start it can be compressor mostly.

but bring a tech and tell him to check it,
that is the best way to find it.

feel free to ask any questions.



thank you

good day

The fact that the compressor is two years old does not mean it cannot break down again, give more details on the problem to troubleshoot further

ULine CLR2160S00 was making ice then the icemaking started to slow then none at all had refrigerant replaced last year and everything else seems to be working fine,,, just no ice


Does the ice maker get water? Could the fill line be blocked? I found on my freezer ice had formed at the end of the tube and once I removed the ice it has worked fine since.

Ice maker stopped working. the water and ice dispense from the door, but it does not make any NEW ice...


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig is frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

My under counter Uline refrigerator/ice maker suddenly trips GFI


I here this alot. If you have a compressor on a gfi the compressor after awhile would trip it. The compressor start amps is usually higher than the gfi is rated. So you have 2 choices. Replace the GFI and try to find one with higher amp ratings. Or install a normal outlet for your unit. Your code will usually call for a gfi, If it does then replace with a new gfi.
To explain the start amps on a compressor depending on your model could be 10 amps. This is for a split second. However the gfi can become week after time. You can also try to plug the unit into a normal outlet to make sure everything is good on the unit. I believe it is the gfi

Ice maker (Uline) just stopped working, not freezing, no noise.


U-line does make compressors as long as its not a r12 system. As far as the icemachine turn breaker off for a couple of min then try it. If same results then it could be a board.

U-Line icemaker is undependable


to make ice the thermo in the ice maker must be below 5 F...make sure there is a clear flow between the evaporator and the ice make also make sure you have a good seal between the freezer and the refrig areas..

1) put a cup of water in the refrig.
2)start with the coolest setting and move 1 setting every 24 hrs.
until it up until it freezing the water.
3) coolest you can get but not freezing the refrig...
hope is help
