Igloo Ice Maker Not Working?

by | Jul 31, 2021 | Ice maker | 0 comments

If your Igloo ice machine does not work, the unit may not turn on properly, may not receive electrical power, may not receive water, or the water may not reach the ice tray. A clogged water supply line can also prevent the machine from producing ice. Alternatively, the ambient temperature in the machine’s water tank may be too high (90 degrees or higher), or there may be a leak of the coolant somewhere in the system.

How to repair Igloo Ice Maker?

Try to solve the problem by first checking the unit’s power connection and double checking if it is paused or if the ice bucket is already full so that it can no longer produce ice. If all else fails, it may be that your Igloo ice maker’s ejector or heating mechanism is defective, or that you have not cleaned it for a while and need to separate and clean each of its components using hot water and vinegar to restore its optimal performance.

How to reset Igloo Ice Maker?

Turn your Igloo ice machine, then press and hold the POWER knob for the next 10 seconds. Drain all the water and let it sit for the next 30 minutes.

If this does not work, unplug your Igloo ice machine, press the center of the ice bucket and push the bucket and pusher backwards. Reconnect the ice maker and turn it on.
