How to Turn the Freestanding Ice Maker On

How to Turn the Ice Maker On or Off for your Jenn-Air Refrigerator

Here are the instructions for turning your ice maker on or off. There are many types of ice makers; if your ice maker is not shown below, please reference your Owner's Manual for additional information. 

NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. As ice is made, the ice cubes will fill the ice storage bin, and the ice cubes will raise the wire shutoff arm to the OFF (arm up) position. Do not force the wire to shut off the arm up or down.

Why you Should Turn Your Ice Maker off

Turn the ice maker off if the water supply is not connected to the water supply line.  

If the Ice Maker remains on and not connected to the water supply, the following could potentially happen:

  • Ice Maker will continue to try to make ice, which causes a buzzing sound. 
  • Cause the refrigerator section is too cold.
  • Food in crisper drawers to freeze.
