Why Does Ice Maker Only Produce A Little Ice?

There are several reasons as to why an ice maker may not produce as much ice as it was designed to do. One important consideration is the temperature of the room. If the room temperature is above 90 degrees the ice production may be reduced. Another consideration for reduced ice production is a dirty condenser. It may be that dirt or lint is obstructing the airflow through the condenser and may need cleaning. A white scale buildup on the water or freezing system may cause reduced ice production and should be cleaned. Finally check to see if the drain cap is securely in place. If loose, the drain cap will allow water to empty from the water pan, thus resulting in either thin or no ice.
