Bosch Ice Maker Repair Service – Appliance Repair Medic
With all of the recent technological advances in the world, it was only a matter of time before some of these electronics made their way into your appliances. Most Bosch ice makers and refrigerators have small computers inside them. These are not high-tech computers that can connect to the internet, or print out business documents. They are supposed to help, but we all know how computers can get sometimes. You just want some ice. Why does a computer have to interfere with something as simple as ice? There are many things that could be causing your Bosch ice maker to stop working, and unfortunately one of them could be that tiny little computer. Some common problems in Bosch Icemaker:
Freezer Temperature is Above 10 Degrees
If the ice maker is not working check the temperature of the freezer. If the freezer temperature is above 10 degrees F. (-12C) the ice maker will not work properly. It functions best when the freezer temperature is set between 0 and five degrees F. (-18 to -15C). If the freezer temp is too high make sure the condenser coil is clean and the condenser fan is working to cool the condenser and compressor. Check the evaporator coil for frost. If too much frost is built up the air can’t circulate thru the coil and you will need to check the defrost components for a failure. Call us today to repair your Bosch ice maker.
Water Inlet Valve
If the refrigerator ice maker is not working the water inlet valve might be defective. The water inlet valve is an electro-mechanical valve. The coil can show good continuity and still not let the water thru. Call us today to repair your Bosch ice maker.
Low Water Pressure from House Supply
If the ice maker is not working the water pressure in the house might be too low. The water inlet valve which supplies water to the ice maker is designed to work with a minimum of 20 psi of water pressure. Call us today to repair your Bosch ice maker.
If the refrigerator ice maker is not working, the door switch might be defective. When the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice maker and dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn’t have continuity it should be replaced.

If the refrigerator ice maker is not working the water filter might be clogged. Try changing the water filter. Call us today to repair your Bosch ice maker. Call us today to repair your Bosch ice maker.
