My icemaker is not making ice as often as it used to. It will

Customer Question

My icemaker is not making ice as often as it used to. It will only make about 2/3 of the ice bin now and it takes over 24 hours to do that. The water is flowing into the icemaker and the water comes out the dispenser the same. What could have cause the icemaker to slow down

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Do you have a model number so I can see what kind of icemaker system you have?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

The model number is ED5VHEXBOO

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 years ago.
OK so it still makes ice but just slower?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I think it makes one or two cycles in a 24 hour period

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 years ago.
OK so obviously that's too slow. Make sure the freezer temperature is around 0 degrees or the icemaker will make ice too slow. If it is at the correct temperature, there isn't much you can do but to just replace the icemaker itself.
