Ice maker isn't working

Issue description:

Ice makers are heat exchangers designed for the production of industrial and food artificial ice. The modern refrigeration equipment market can offer a huge range of ice makers of various types and brands. Their improper operation or untimely service, as a rule, lead to breakdowns.

Common breakdowns and ways to eliminate them:

1. Water in the ice box - a clogged drain hose is the most common cause of this problem.

2. Freezing of ice in one piece on the evaporator, lack of defrost - in this case, the cause of the breakdown may be due to a malfunction of the programmer, evaporator thermostat or solenoid valve.

3. The formed ice has an irregular shape - the reason lies in the clogged water nozzles or damage to the pump.

4. The ice turns out to be cloudy - such a problem indicates an excess of lime and calcium in the system.

5. Problems with turning on the ice maker or cycling for 15-40 minutes. When the mains indicator is active, ice is not produced - there may be several reasons for the malfunction: one of them is a malfunction of the container overflow thermostat, the other is the shutdown of the high condensing pressure in case of accidents.

6. No freezing of the evaporator. Heavy suction pressure - this happens in situations where the water solenoid or solenoid valve does not close.

7. Incomplete freezing of the evaporator. Insufficient suction pressure - this occurs in the event of a clogged capillary tube and a freon leak.
