Producing Too Much Ice

 

Possible Solutions

Is the ice maker level?

It is important for the ice maker to be level in order to work properly. Depending upon where you install the ice maker, you may need to make several adjustments to level it. You may also use the leveling legs to lower the height of the ice maker for under counter installations.

Is the bin sensor blocked or dirty?

  • It is important to make sure that the bin sensor is not blocked by the ice scoop or any other items that may be in the bin. 
  • We don't recommend storing anything in bin, other than the ice that is produced.
  • Check to make sure the sensor is not dirty or has a mineral build up. The sensor can be cleaned with a soft towel and warm soapy water. 

What is Max Ice, Fast Ice or Accelerated Ice?

Select the accelerated ice production feature when you have an upcoming need for a large amount of ice and the ice bin is low or empty.  Max Ice, Fast Ice or Accelerated Ice mode will produce a greater quantity of ice in a 24-hour period
