Low Ice Production, why is this?

Last Update Date : Apr 06. 2018
[Overview]

The Initial Ice Making Process

 

The ice making process drops the cubes into the same area, making a pile under the ice maker. The Ice Level sensor eventually "sees" the pile of ice and stops production. If you do not dispense or use the ice, the ice maker remains off.

 

The Ice Dispensing And Ice Refilling Process.

 

After you have dispensed or used some ice, the auger in the ice bucket distributes the ice cubes evenly in the ice bucket. The ice maker then senses a low ice condition, and resumes the ice making process.

[Cause]

Water is not fully supply.

 

Low ice will be produced, If unit is operated less than 24hours after installation.

[Solution]

Maximizing Ice Production.

 

To maximize ice cube production, follow these steps:

1 Make sure the water line is connected and the water valve is fully open.
2 Allow your refrigerator to cool for 24 hours before normal ice production begins.
3 After 24 hours has passed, dispense a few cubes of ice. This causes the auger in the ice bucket to distribute the cubes evenly in the ice bucket. The ice maker detects a low ice condition and resumes making ice.
4 Wait an additional 6 hours, and then dispense a few cubes of ice again. This causes the auger in the ice bucket to distribute the cubes evenly in the ice bucket. From this point on, ice production will start whenever the ice maker senses a low ice condition.

※Note 1: If you need additional ice, empty the ice bucket into another container. The ice maker will sense a low ice condition and produce more ice.

 

※Note 2: when you dispense ice, you must have:

 

• The refrigerator doors closed.

 

• The ice maker selector on Cubed or Crushed.
