Ice Maker Maintenance Tips

Keep the Ice Cube Bin Smelling Fresh

Over time, the ice cube bin can absorb difficult-to-remove odors from the freezer. We recommend that you replace the bin every 2 to 3 years--whenever it seems to be retaining objectionable odors and transferring them to the ice cubes. can help find your correct ice maker bin.

Water filter replacement

We recommend that you replace your ice maker water filter twice a year.

Old cubes in the ice bin

To help keep your ice tasting its best, empty out the ice and wash the ice bin every 2 to 3 months. Also try to keep the foods in your refrigerator covered, because the ice cubes absorb many odors and tastes (baby formula, onion, and so on).

Cubes too small

If the cubes coming from your icemaker are too small, it may be time to replace the water filter. Or the shut-off water-supply valve may be clogged. Check the water-supply valve first, to see if there is an obstruction. If the cubes are still small when you're sure that the water supply is good, try replacing the water filter.
