Does the ice maker need to be cleaned?

The ice-making system and the air-cooled condenser need to be cleaned regularly for the ice maker to operate at peak efficiency and to avoid premature failure of system components. It is recommended that you clean the ice Maker when the "Cleaning Needed" or  "Cleaning Cycle" button is illuminated , after 9 months or if ice production has decreased significantly.
