Igloo ice maker not working

Igloo ice maker not working. There may be no water in the ice maker, and without the water, the ice maker cannot make ice. The ice maker may not have sufficient power to make ice.

The ice maker may have clogs, or the cooling system inside the icemaker has some issues.

I saw my icemaker not working and the ice maker was not working in the middle of summer. That heat almost gave me a stroke, but I didn’t have a working ice maker.

Thinking that I should fix my old ice maker, I decided to troubleshoot the ice maker and see why the ice maker was not making ice.

I checked the whole ice maker out and found the ice maker had all the problems you can think of. I fixed the ice maker and solved all ice maker issues. Fixing the machine was not very difficult.

Igloo ice maker not working

The ice maker can make trouble for you if it doesn’t produce ice because it’s not working. Having no ice from your ice-making machine is the worst.

There are reasons for the device to not produce ice and not work at all. The reasons there is no ice produced are below.

You may have the water supply to the maker blocked. This blocking is not let the water into the machine, and water is unable to turn into ice.

If the whole machine doesn’t work, then check the power to the machine. You may find faults in the power line of the machine.

Lack of power

lack of power

If you don’t have ice from your machine or the machine is not producing ice, then power is your key issue. Power to the machine is one of the most vital things in such devices.

You won’t see the machine working or producing ice for you if it doesn’t have any power. There is a lot of power not receiving seasons. You should start by checking the outlet to which your machine was connected.

Maybe the cord is not present inside the outlet. If the outlet is not inserted with the cord, then attach the cord to the outlet.

If the outlet has a cord in it, then check the power button of the outlet. It may be switched, so turn the outlet’s button on and ensure the power you receive is smooth.

The button of the outlet after turning on should be working, but if the outlet is connected to the breaker and the breaker is tripped, then the machine still won’t work.

Turn the breaker to your device on and see if your device turns on at the least. If the machine turns on, great work. If the machine doesn’t make ice even after getting the power, move to the next.

Lack of water

If power is not the problem or you have set the machine’s power, then you will need some other fix to produce ice in the maker. The ice in the maker or anywhere is produced from water.

The water freezes, and that is how the ice is formed. The ice maker also uses water and produces ice when water is received by it.

The water inside the maker freezes, and you get the ice cubes you want from the machine. This whole thing about making ice is impossible without the presence of water.

Now to know the reason water doesn’t get to the maker or why doesn’t ice maker have water? The ice maker won’t have water if the machine is not connected to a proper water supply.

You may have not counted the water supply line to the maker. The lines of water to your machine may have clogs in them.

If your water lines have clogs, then water won’t reach the maker, and like before, the lack of water makes the ice maker work without water; actually, there isn’t any work without water, so no ice is formed.

Blocked outlet

If the ice maker is not making the ice and even the already made ice starts melting, then you don’t have water problems or power problems. The problem of not making ice or melting is because of the pipes.

The poor performance is the cause of the ice maker not working. If the ice is not forming and ice keeps melting, then check the air outlet.

The air outlet is as important as other parts and in fact, it brings the proper flow of air to the maker to make ice.

The problem with having an air outlet is that the air outlet can get blocked sometimes. The ice forms inside, or the water gets inside the air outlet and then gets the air outlet wholly blocked.

The ice melts as the flow of air in the maker is improper. If the air outlet is the problem, then you need to free the air outlet from the blockage.

To clear the air outlet, you should get a soft cloth. A soft cloth will be enough to remove the outlet, and as the airflow inside the ice maker becomes proper, it will work.

Water temperature

If you have the air outlet opening, and the air through the outlet is great, and still the ice is not forming, then you should check the temperature of the water that is entering the machine.

The temperature at which the water is present in the maker is important as well. The temperature of water actually has effects on the ice maker.

The hotter the water inside the maker, the more difficulty the maker will have in producing ice.

The water temperature inside the maker should be low, so the ice maker can produce ice easily. You won’t get ice with hot water, so while filling the ice maker, get cold water.

You can use room temperature water to make ice. The cool water produces ice faster. You can attach the water line with cold water to the ice maker as well. The Igloo ice maker will make ice.

Low refrigerants

low refrigerants

If your Igloo ice maker doesn’t produce ice even after the ice maker has the right water coming to it and even the supply of water is undeniably smooth, then the ice is not formed because of the refrigerant.

The refrigerants are in all cooling devices. Your fridge and the ice maker both have them. The freezer also uses refrigerant. If your ice maker lacks refrigerant, then having water is of no use.

Ice in the Igloo ice maker will not be formed without the refrigerant. You will need your icemaker to get the refrigerant again so it can make ice. You can’t fill the refrigerant by yourself, so call the Igloo services.

Tell them that the ice maker is out of refrigerant and get your ice maker filled. The Igloo services may help in identifying other ice maker issues. Your Igloo ice maker will work.


No ice; only once is fine. Having no ice twice is also fine, but having no ice at all because of your Igloo ice maker not working is the worst.

The Igloo ice maker won’t function if the water or power is missing. The missing refrigerant or air duct blockage will not produce either. Thanks for reading!
