Ice maker breakdowns
Problems with programmer, valve, and thermostat.
You have noticed that ice is freezing in pieces on the evaporator. Defrost cycle does not start. First thing to do is to turn off and reset the unit.
Causes of problems and possible solutions:
- Programmer. The thermostat sends a signal to the control module, which starts the defrost or freeze cycle. If processes do not start within 12 minutes, run diagnostics.
- Evaporator thermostat. It signals the temperature in the chamber to the module. To perform the test, press the spring of the part from the back side. Measure the resistance with a multimeter.
- Solenoid valve. The valve shuts off the flow of refrigerant to the evaporator to freeze the liquid. It opens before starting the defrost, allowing hot flow into the evaporator.
Nozzle clogging or pump malfunction (no water flow).
Typical signs of malfunctioning are incorrectly shaped ice or incomplete filling of the forms. The pump is used to force water into the compartment, which comes through the nozzles. If the water is not coming, then there is a clog that needs to be removed.
Even if cubes are formed, they are not the right shape.
There is not enough water to completely fill the molds. Check the stop valve of the filling hose. Open it to its full capacity. Problems with the operation of the solenoid valve. In this case it is necessary to replace the element.
Unstable operation of the pump.
Water flows into the chamber intermittently and unstably. It is necessary to clean: the manifold, filter, nozzles. Diagnose pump malfunction, install a new part if necessary.
To keep the system running smoothly, it is important to perform regular maintenance ice maker services: cleaning the equipment from dust, dirt, and condensation that occurs during the production of crushed ice. Specialists recommend using baking soda in domestic conditions for cleaning stubborn stains on the surface of the unit's walls.
