Why is the ice from under counter ice machines so much better than refrigerator ice?


Refrigerator ice forms in a mold (think ice tray) made up of not only water, but whatever impurities it may contain. Even safe, municipal water supplies have some sediments and a range of chemicals from treatment. Ice machines create ice from water moving across a freezing surface and the result consists almost totally of water without impurities. So it is much more clear than ice from a mold in the refrigerator. Both systems work well, but the results have marked differences.

Ice maker makes ice really slow. drops ice every 45minutes or so


i think that is a good time to make some ice.
and depends what temp. you have the freezer setup to.
the colder the ice the longer it takes to make ice.
if you have to or need more information try this

Fim200a does not make the cubes large enough


If you just started having this problem now and it was making the right size ice before then i would first look at cleaning the ice machine including the condenser coil. second thing make sure that the water inlet valve is not seeping water by when it is in freeze mode just a little warmer water will cause it to not make good ice and a longer freeze time. last thing would be to adjust the I.S.Adjust: Ice size adjustment on the control board. Turn screw clockwise, and the size of individual ice cubes will be larger in the next cycle; the cycle time will be longer. Turn the screw counter-clockwise, and the ice will be smaller in the next cycle. only do this if every thing ealse checks out good.

Our Marvel icemaker was working great then it starting making ice at a much slower pace. It is not make ice no where near as fast as it was. What could be the problem?


Could be a dirty condenser coil, blocked return air, if the ice machine is in a warm environment it takes longer to make ice, water temperature if it is warmer it will take longer to make ice. if water inlet valve is letting water seep buy during freeze cycle it will take longer to freeze.

Don't have instruction manual. How do you make basic ice cream in this machine? How long do you freeze container in freezer? How long do you plug in?


Freeze the the container for at least 48 hours before using it. You can use whatever ice cream recipe you like in the unit. Basic vanilla - 3 cups whole milk - 1 teas vanilla - 1 cup heavy whipping cream - 1/2 cup sugar. Mix everything together in a pitcher and make sure the sugar is disolved. Taste it and make sure it is sweet enough for you. If not, add more sugar. If you use 2% your ice cream will not be very thick and it will take longer to set up and freeze.

Put the container in the ice cream maker. Turn it on (insert the plastic mixing blade if it has one) Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker if it has an open space to add mix through the top. If not - put the mix in before turning it on (my model is a little different than yours - sorry!)

when the ice cream is thick enough for you - then its done. It usually takes approx 15 - 20 for soft serve/milk shake consistency - and 30 - 45 for stiffer - ice cream. The ice cream does not get hard - at best its soft serve quality. There are other recipes that you cook which I hear will set up harder but I have not tried any yet.

You can make chocolate by using the same recipe above - and adding any liquid chocolate - or fudge. If you add strawberry preserves - it makes strawberry ice cream. sugar free drink mix added to the vanilla recipe above makes great flavors (crystal light drink power mixes ect)

Good luck!

The ice machine is no longer taking in water to make ice


Sometimes the valve on the water line becomes plugged and can no longer supply water to the refrigerator. The other options are that the ice maker could possibly not be supplying voltage to the solenoid valve on the rear of the fridge, or the solenoid valve could be bad itself.

if the motor goes, it would probably be cheaper to buy a new maker... but try www.jardencs.com and call the 800 number under the Rivel Logo.
