This makes ice very well which is a good thing,,,,, obviously. This is a little freezer with a typical ice maker like you would have in your home freezer mounted inside and an ice bucket, again like you would see in a regular freezer. It makes the half moon shaped cubes pretty quickly, we will see how it holds up to summer ice use around here, which can be pretty substantial.
As far as installation, it's easy enough. Water supply close to the unit just like a typical freezer, then toss the rubbish plastic line and fittings that come packaged with it and go get a braided flexible hook up line made especially for connecting ice makers to plumbing and there you go. No worries about cheap fittings breaking, no need to tighten the fitting like crazy since the hook up lines use rubber sealing washers in them. Fluidmaster 12IM72 Ice Maker Connector, Braided Stainless Steel - 1/4" Compression Thread x 1/4" Compression Thread, 6 Ft. (72") Length Something like this is perfect.
Now on to the negatives. The unit arrived nicely packaged and undamaged, it is a nice enough looking addition to the kitchen. I plumbed it and plugged it in and it started right up. It probably made it's first set of cubes in half an hour and continued right along for the rest of the day. It made a rattling sound when the compressor would start once early on but it didn't do it again the first day. The next morning, it had made about half a bucket of ice and no more. I noticed the bail handle, the wire inside that is the automatic shutoff switch, wasn't all the way down and there was o no ice holding it up. Looking closer, there was a chip of ice under the dumping arm stopping it from completing it's cycle. I picked the ice out and it continued on. It did this once in a while for no apparent reason.
The rattling noise returned the next day when the compressor would start. It was inside the compressor housing like one of the internal rubber mounts was broken. It would rattle very loudly for several seconds up to maybe 10 seconds. This didn't affect it's operation, but it had to go back. Amazon quickly shipped out a replacement and they couldn't have handled it better.
The second one arrived and was visually similar except this one has an adjustment knob on the front panel for adjusting the temperature. Also, this one pulled air in the front grille where the other one pushed air out. This one went right in and made ice just as well as the other one. It never has had the problem with the chips of ice blocking the mechanism and stopping ice production.
The first unit, besides the rattling, was acceptably quiet. The second one has a fan that sounded pretty much like a microwave running. You could hear it several rooms away and in the kitchen, living room or dining room it was very annoying, it certainly wasn't going to be acceptable the way it was. I removed the fan assembly and replaced it with these fans. AC Infinity AIRPLATE S5, Quiet Cooling Fan System 8" with Speed Control, for Home Theater AV Cabinets I ended up taking the fans out of the plate they came in and using just the fans mounted inside the lower cabinet close to the condenser. They are almost silent, you have to put your ear down by the intake to hear them. I used these fans as the ice maker is built in along with a drink cooler and these fans run continuously, moving air through the cabinet all the time. Since you can't hear them it is a great solution.
The ice maker is working perfectly so far and I expect no issues using the fans as a replacement. The two units I received were identical looking except for the temperature control on the second one, but they are completely different, mechanically. Different condenser, looks like a different compressor and definitely a different fan. Who knows why this is the case, I'm assuming there are lots of places in China building cheap refrigeration units and this company just assembles the pieces.
So if you don't mind spending some time fiddling with this, or, swapping them out until you win the chinese quality control lottery, then this is a fine machine for the price. Time will tell if it continues to serve us well.
I purchased this item because the ice maker in our fridge just couldn't keep up with the demand for ice this HOT summer. The item arrived on time and I had it hooked up and running in just a few minutes. Immediately it began to make ice and lots of it! We are able to use all the ice we want and are still able to bag half it's daily out put and put it in the freezer. It does however come with a cheap plastic water supply tube which I did not use. I chose to go with a copper tube. Can't say enough about the performance of this appliance. I will mention that there is a wide range of prices on this model so shop for the bargain. The one I chose was $268 dollars. I am elated!!!
I'm a fan of Amzn but not of this ice maker. Got it really fast but when I opened it I didn't have a very good impression. The top of the unit was dirty and smudged, almost like someone used a dirty rag to give it a once over. Still, I was not ready to say no before even trying it out.
Plugged it in and got it hooked up to the water line. The unit and directions warn that you must use a plumber to get this hooked up or else. I don't know about everyone but I can't afford to spend another hundred dollars just to get this connected to the waterline. I ventured for myself and seemed to get it connected ok or so I thought. Turned on the water and sure enough, the connection came loose and I had to deal with a minor flood. No problem I tried it again and triple taped it with waterproofing tape. Seemed to hold ok.
Ran the unit for a couple of hours and the ice gradually got larger (first few pieces were small ice chips). Kept it going for 6 hours and finally got maybe 10 pieces of full sized ice bullets. Not sure what the deal was. Ran it overnight and by the next day I got maybe one pound of ice. I called the manufacturer and was given a really circular explanation that made very little sense and if I wanted more I would have to run it for longer...much longer. Ok, so much for that. Just for the fun of it, I ran it for 2 days straight. 1) I got 3 pounds of ice in 48 hrs! and 2) The unit made a loud grinding noise and promptly stopped producing ice.
Seems like a really poorly manufactured item that really doesn't make an acceptable amount of ice, unless you are willing to wait (forever). So I spent the next 15 mins unhooking everything and putting it back in the box, printing out the return label.
