ice maker repair

8 posts in this topic

Our icecube tray sits on a bit of a slant when we slide it onto the arm of the machine, which causes water to pool in the front right corner. This , when frozen does not crack and fall out. When the tray turns over and fills up again, it overflows in this one corner.  Please help:yikes:

You could try using a shim in the bottom mounting point for the icemaker to level it.

Usually, when I run into this problem, there's something else wrong; either the icemaker is installed wrong or the freezer liner is buckled.

Post a photo so we can feast our Vulcan squinties lovingly upon it.

Thank you O Exalted Grand Master of Appliantology  :notworthy:.    Is there anyway we can reduce the water flow into the icecube tray?  Perhaps if the water level were lower , all the ice would fall out?

Yes, but you'd be fixing the wrong problem.  :headbang::beating:

I have examined the icemaker mount (and found no buckling) and tried to shim the tray to no avail!  We have since identified this as "Dole" type icemaker.  The overflow problem is not that bad, just over the lip of the adjoining compartments.  It was just a guess that this was the problem?  Is there something else that may be wrong?  Forever bowing to your wisdom O Master of appliantology.

Ah, the dole-type icemaker is no longer being manufactured or supported.  Your best bet is to buy an updated replacement icemaker.
