Nice little ice maker - for a while
on July 19, 2011
First things first, this is not a high capapcity ice maker. If you are counting on this for enough ice for a party (especially here in Texas) you underestimate the amount of ice you need. That being said. It makes about 12-14 pounds of ice in a day, so if we are having a party we capture a couple of bags of cubes ahead of time. The only slight complaint is that you have to occasionally defrost, I understand that is the tradeoff for not having to deal with installing a drain. For daily use, this definitely stays ahead of the family.
After a little more than a year (factory warranty) the compressor on this unite completely died. While it was working, it was great but 14 months and I am back to the drawing board.
