Fridge ice maker

a2geminiJune 11, 2014

Yesterday, my DH comes into the great room and announces the Elux IceMaker is broken.

I open the fridge and saw the issue - the bale was up and would not go down - but could flip up even further.

I suggested we close the freezer and check on it a bit later. I opened the door about 15 minutes later and the bale was back in position. I heard it cycle a few times during the interim.

The fridge is 4 years old and I never noticed that the bale moves based on the time of the cycle.

So bottom line - nothing wrong with the fridge -just us - LOL

Yes, of course the bail moves ... that's how it senses when the bin is full. It raises during the harvest cycle, the fresh ice dumps (under the bail), then it drops again to rest atop the ice supply. It can't drop fully down when the ice supply is accumulated sufficiently, which triggers the ice-making cycles to stop.
