Nice, quick and reliable for about 15 months.

I bought this machine a year and a half ago. It has made ice like a champ, ever six minutes, spitting out perfectly sized cube, in my choice of sizes. Today I noticed it had stopped working. Water level were fine, motor runs, just won't fill and won't freeze. The biggest problem seems to be that there is a large amount of calcium build up. I have a lot minerals in my water so this isn't unusual. Even though I always use filtered water, it's hard to remove it all, and after 14 1/2 months, it's done.
This was a great machine. I think it might have lasted me longer had I turned it off now and then, and maybe checked it more often for the mineral buildup. But it's a great machine and I cannot complain about how well it has worked. I wish it had lasted longer but I take at least a good part of the blame.
Because there is no way to find out how to do maintenance on this machine and there is no manufacturer website that offers even a manual, I have dropped my rating to 3 stars. The was a good machine while it lasted but there is no way to clean the filter that I can see, there are no manuals available online that I can find.
