How do you clean an IceMagic Ice Maker

I just bought a house that came with a Whirlpool Fridge. It has an IceMagice Ice Maker (Kit#ECKMF-90). The problem I'm having is the ice smells like a sour dish rag and the ice makes things taste funny. How do I sanitize and or clean it out?

Please help, buying ice makes my husband nuts....

Since chemicals are a bad idea and could contaminate the ice, I think this may be a task for a steam cleaner like scunci or shark. Use a clean cloth with a touch of dish detergent and get the reachable parts. then wipe down with hot wet cloth followed by a dry one. Unplug while cleaning the mechanical part to be safe.

Ice Maker stopped working -- new fridge 3 months old.


Good day,
Icing could be one problem. The first thing to test is the water supply to the machine. Shut the house off at the meter. Remove the line from the water valve at the machine. Insert the line into a bucket while someone else turns on the water at the meter for a 15 second count. It should come out forcefully, not weak or just dribbling.
If it's bad, then the line and the fittings where it connects to the house supply should be inspected, and cleaned or replaced as needed.
If it is O.K. and the machine is under one year of age, it is under warranty and you should call your selling dealer for a free service call.

Water accumalating in the bottom of the fridge.


A common problem. All modern refrigerators have an automatic deicer. The heater kicks in, then MELTS the ice in build up in the freezer for a short period before freezing again. This water drains either in the fridge or out the back to the catch tray. Simply pull out the bottom drawers and clean the clogged drain hold where the water can drain and evaporate in the catch tray as it is designed to.

I have a whirlpool fridge with the freezer on top. The ice maker is not making ice quickly. How can I fix this?


Good day,
As a general rule refrigerator ice makers don't really make ice cubes very fast.
Things that could increase the production are.
1. Set the freezer to a colder setting. That control is usually on a whirlpool is called an air control.
2. Setting the refrigerator control colder, while also help since setting it to a colder setting will actually make both compartments colder.
3. The ice maker produces ice when it's internal thermostat reaches approx. 14 degrees.
You have no control of that function.
4. If the cubes are on the small side, the water valve on the back bottom of the machine may need to be replaced.
5. Along that same line, the water supply line from the house and it's fittings could be starting to restrict, not supplying enough water pressure.
The line, unless plastic, and the valve would need either be removed and cleaned or replaced with new.

Ice does not come out


When an icemaker slows down , as long as the fridge AND freezer are cooling normally , it usually indicates that the coils need cleaning of dust , lint , pet hair , sand , etc...Also make sure the fan by the compressor is running to keep the compressor cool .

How do i clear drainpipe so defrost will go to drippan instead of inside the fridge


Compressed air/nitrogen. Air conditioning parts houses sell a kit used for clearing condensate drain lines. This device uses a CO2 cartridge for pressure. When you clear the drain pour a solution of 50/50 bleach water in the drain to kill the microbials.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.
