MY NAME IS ***** ***** OUT MAGIC CHEF PORTABLE ICE MAKER IS…

Customer Question
HI MY NAME IS...

HI MY NAME IS ***** ***** OUT MAGIC CHEF PORTABLE ICE MAKER IS RED LIGHT IS BLINKING AND NOT HARVESTING ICE. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

THAT IS BASICALLY IT. SO FRUSTRATING. THE LIGHT FLASHES AND IT DOESN'T EVEN ALLOW IT TO KICK ON?

Contractor's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Appliance Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

YES. WE USE THIS ALL THE TIME. I MOST DEFINATELY NEED ANSWERS. CAN THIS EVEN BE FIXED
