Haier freestanding ice maker repair and replacement parts
Haier manufactures dependable freestanding ice makers that rarely break down. Haier freestanding ice makers use advanced controls that maximize ice production so you're never short on ice. When your Haier ice maker does break down, find the repair parts you need to fix the problem at Sears PartsDirect.
Troubleshooting your Haier freestanding ice maker when it runs but makes no ice
When the ice maker runs but doesn't make any ice, a bad electronic control board, failed water supply, broken recirculation pump, sealed system failure or broken cutting grid could be causing the problem.
A faulty electronic control board can prevent the ice maker from making any ice. A power surge through the electrical supply line to the ice maker can lock up the control board, so reset the control board by unplugging the ice maker for one minute, then restoring electrical power.
If the ice maker doesn't start making ice, check the evaporator plate. If the evaporator plate is dry and the water reservoir is full, then the recirculation pump is likely bad. If the reservoir is empty, check the water supply going to the ice maker. To check the water supply, unplug the ice maker and shut off the water supply cut-off valve. Disconnect the water supply line from the ice maker and place the end of the water supply line in a container. Briefly open the water supply cut-off valve and check for water flow from the end of the water supply line. If no water flows through the end of the supply line, have a plumber fix the water supply going to the ice maker. If water does flow through the supply line, you'll likely need to replace the water inlet valve because it's not opening to allow water to flow into the reservoir.
If the water reservoir and is full and water flows over the evaporator plate but doesn't freeze, then a failed condenser fan, bad compressor or lack of refrigerant could be preventing the evaporator plate from getting cold and freezing the water. Replace the condenser fan if it doesn't run when activated. If the condenser fan runs, you'll need to have a service technician diagnose and repair the sealed system, which includes the compressor and connecting tubes that carry refrigerant. The sealed system should only be repaired by a service technician because the repair involves the recovery and recharge of refrigerant, which is tightly regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
If water freezes on the evaporator plate but the slab of ice sticks on top of the cutting grid and doesn't get cut into cubes and drop down into the bin, then you may need to replace the cutting grid if its grid wires don't heat up when activated.
Haier freestanding ice maker common repair parts
Transformer. The transformer converts 120 volt AC power to low-voltage DC power. The low voltage DC power is used to heat the cutting grid wires that cut the slab of ice into cubes.
Water inlet valve. The water valve fills the water reservoir during the ice-making process to replenish the water that freezes to form the slab of ice on the evaporator plate.
Switch assembly. The switch assembly houses the selection buttons on the control panel. The switch assembly is connected to the electronic control board through a wire harness.
Cleaning solution. Ice maker cleaning solution removes mineral deposits from the evaporator plate and water tubes. Use ice maker cleaning solution when you run the cleaning cycle on your ice maker.
