SOURCE: no water to ice maker

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.

  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.

    SOURCE: Ice maker not working

    I recently had trouble with both my water dispenser and my ice maker. I determined that my filter was clogged, so I replaced it. That fixed the water dispenser but the ice maker still wasn't working. I investigated further and found that the water inlet tube was frozen solid. Aparently, when the filter was clogged the water came in so slowly that it froze before it got to the icetray. I tried pouring hot water over the inlet tube to melt it and it mostly worked, but there was still some ice in the tube further back where I couldn't reach. Finally I defrosted the freezer so all the ice could melt and turned it back on and now it works great! Hope this might help.

    SOURCE: Danby ALSO does not cool 3 days old

    Take it back where you bought it. A 12,000 BTU unit should be more than enough for a 192 square foot room, so there is some problem with the unit.

    What is the brand of your ice machine?
    I usually get Scotsman doing this ,
    Mostly it's because of the clogging of the air filter, and even after cleaning it needed to be reset.
    To reset you need only to push the signal button for 5 sec.
    And it's done .

    Why is my igloo portable ice maker hot?

    The heat that is being removed from within the unit has to be extracted towards the outside. A lot of times the condenser coils are on the surface just underneath the exterior panels.

    I have a danby(simplicity) portable airconditioner,was working fine till i heard ice droping into the fan(crunching noise).after that,it does not blow cold air anymore.any ideas what the problem could

    Is the fan no longer running, or is it now blowing room temperature air? If it iced up enough to drop ice into the fan it may have simply gone into defrost mode. Unplug it and make sure it has completely defrosted - if it ices up quickly when powered up again, you likely have a problem with the condenser lines.
