The monitor on the panel says 1 deg. Although I raised the temp because I had issues with the water line freezing (the loop in the fridge portion) and I had issues with the actual ice maker itself feeezing up and not making any ice.
I think it was set at around -3 deg. when I was having those issues.... I can't imagine the range would be that tight would it?
Correct - it is french door upper fridge (full width on the top) with a full width pull out freezer drawer.
The icemaker is in the fridge portion on the top left.
Yep - the fan's working. When it froze up and stopped making ice the last time, the fan wasn't though. I defrosted it and dried it out at that time but it's working now. By the way - the thing has made about 2 or 3 trays is all in almost 24 hours...
How do I check the airflow? Is there a port that could be blocked by something that got sucked in somewhere?
So.. when I said the fan is working, I was talking about the fan in the ice maker section... I pulled off the cover in the actual freezer section (at the back) and there is another fan that is not spinning... should that one be running full time?
Ok - yes that's running as well...
So does the air from the freezer to the ice maker come from there or from under the wide flap at the back / bottom? My freezer is suddenly (in the last few weeks) very full, maybe it's just because it isn't getting enough air?
Or could the ice maker unit itself be bad after only a year or two? If it's bad, would it still make ice - only very slowly, or not at all?
