    had mine replaced because it was over filling with water and freezing all over the new ice cubes. Some of my cubes were stuck in the tray and when I had it replaced I saw that the tray had caroded from??? and that is why the ice couldn't pass out. When is was getting stuck more water would come in to take the palce of the ice pushed through. But it would overflow for the ice that was stuck. Than freeze and stick all the ice together. Big mess. Had it changed out with a new ice maker and all is good. I watched and it looked simple. Just a few screws.

Once full, ice melts and then doesn't start making ice again until bin is completely empty


There should be a temperature sensor (thermostat) close to the top of where the ice comes out of. This determines the height of the ice in the bin by controlling a call for cooling/making ice. This thermostat may be sticking, or is not sensitive enough to read the drop in temperature of the depletion of ice.

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.

Melting ice


The bin has most likely failed. Apparently the bin insulation on the DCE33 eventually gets saturated with water and loses it's insulation ability. Consequently the ice melts prematurely. Condensation starts to build up inside the bin because it's not cold enough adding to the problem as the water drips on the new ice inside the bin.

Mine is 5-yrs old and I was told that it's all the life I'll get out of it.

If everything else is workng properly, harvest time, cube size, cold water spray, then a new bin is the unfortunate solution.

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!

My u line under counter ice maker (bin, not clear ice) will take forever to make ice. Once it starts to make ice and drop it in the bin, several hours later it will stop making ice and the made ice will...


Can you tell me the model? If its a bi series then it should make ice every 45 min. temps should be 10-15 degrees in bucket. If its a combo then it could take 24 hours to make 1/2 of the bucket.Should be the same temp in your bucket.Make sure you dont have heavy frost in the freezer, Make sure the condenser fan is running and clean.If the temperature in freezer is alot warmer than this and everythng is running then it could be a leak in the system. If its colder than that then set the thermostat to a warmer temperature
