More about Ice not forming in Freezer
Ices makers can
vary from model to model of refrigerator but they operate on similar principal.
Whatever be the type of the ice maker in the refrigerator (whether it is
connected to the water supply or you fill the water in the ice tray), they have
similar operations and problems.
Ice not forming
inside refrigerator is difficult to fix and most of the time require a
refrigerator repair expert to identify the root of the problem.
Reasons behind “ice not forming in freezer “problem
- Incorrect optimal temperature inside refrigerator: The optimal temperature for ice making is 0 Degree Celsius or
less. When the required temperature is reached inside the ices maker or
freezer, voltage is sent to the water inlet valve which allows the water to
enter the ice maker. In the models that do not have an inlet water supply, ice
trays are manually filled with water and kept in the refrigerator. When
temperature setting inside the refrigerator is incorrect, ice is not formed.
- Low inlet water pressure: A
water pipe is connected to inlet water valve of the refrigerator. The water
flows from the pipe to the valve and reaches the ice maker. Sometimes due to
insufficient water pressure to the inlet valve or any obstruction in the water
pipe itself, required amount of water cannot be reached to the ice maker box
and hence small or hollow cubes are formed. This can be corrected by checking
the water pressure reaching the inlet valve. If the pressure in the water pipe
is less than the problem is with the water supply line. But when the water
pressure is fine then there can be an obstruction in the inlet valve of the
- Defective thermostat: One
common reason behind no ice formation inside refrigerator is a defective
thermostat. Call a refrigerator repair professional for thermostat repair.
- Insufficient incoming voltage: When the refrigerator is turned on, an electric voltage is send to
the thermostat which in turn triggers other key components of refrigerator. But
when this incoming voltage is insufficient, the whole refrigeration cycle
cannot start and no ice forms in the freezer section.
- Obstruction in inlet pipe: Many times it happens that
the ice maker does not make any ice at all. One possible reason is that no
water is entering the ice maker to make ice. This occurs when water is frozen
inside the pipe carrying water to the ice maker of refrigerator. Other reason
is that the temperature inside the refrigerator is too high for the ice maker
to produce ice. In such situation, call a PRO for refrigerator repair.
These are some
common reasons behind ice not forming in freezer problem but there can be other
reasons as well.
