Customer Question
I have a Uline...

I have a Uline combo 29a refrigerator/ice maker that will not automatically dump the ice.It refills and freezes ice okay but never dumps.I removed the cover from the front of the ice maker. There are two cogged gears-one small brass colored metal gear and a much larger plastic white gear. I can turn the small gear about 90 degrees counterclockwise with a pliers and it will go into dump mode. What is the problem?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

As I so precise stated already - it a=is a Uline 29a combo!!!!! It is about 28 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Hopefully!

There is a thermostat that needs to close for the motor to get power to initiate the harvest. It needs to be at least 12* F to close, so we need to see what the temperature is at the ice maker, please.
