Ice Maker Troubles


The ice that the ice maker is putting out keeps getting smaller and smaller. I also live in an area that has alot of minerals in the drinking water. What can I do to increase the size of the ice ?

Ice Maker Troubles


I would start with replacing the filter. If you don't have one, you should think about installing one.

Hi,

No make, model# approx age mentioned.

Poor/low water pressure will effect the size of cubes. Possible a tired filter ( if used ), clogged/cloging shut off valve ( esp the self piercing style ) or fill valve.

Most/many icemakers will fill for approx 6-8 seconds which is approx 130 to 150 cc ( 4.5 to 5.0 oz ).

jeff.
