Water Circulating

Possible Solutions

Is the water reservoir overflowing?

This is normal. This overflow helps to purge minerals that were removed from the water during the ice making process. 

Is the ice maker making ice? Normal Sounds

This is normal. Your Ice Maker does make different noises while it is producing ice.  Below is a list of some of the noise it makes.

  • Water running from the evaporator plate to the water pan may make a splashing sound.
  • When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.
  • If the ice maker is connected to a water supply pressure in excess of 60 psi, you may hear a loud sound during water filling associated with the flow of water through the inlet valve. Call a licensed, qualified plumber to determine the best method to reduce the supply water pressure (50 psi is recommended).
