What should I do if my ice maker is not making enough ice in my refrigerator?

If your ice maker is not making enough ice, here are few things to be aware of.

  1. The ice maker should produce 2 to 3 pounds of ice per 24 hours, depending on usage.
  2. The ice bin should hold about 4 pounds of ice. If this is not happening, the water filter may be clogged or overdue for replacement.
  3.  If water is dispensing slowly or not at all, or your water filter is older than 6 months, it’s time to replace.
  4. If the water supply line is not kinked, this sometimes can happen if the refrigerator is pushed too far against the wall.
  5. Heavy traffic, opening or closing the refrigerator doors excessively can slow down ice production.
  6. Some models are equipped with Quick Freeze feature – just press Quick Freeze on your display to temporarily increase the ice production rate.
  7. If your refrigerator is not properly making ice, the freezer temperature could be set too warm. Set the freezer control to a colder setting to improve ice production. Allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize.
  8. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
