I have a built in Mermaid icemaker, which has been working well. I have an auxiliary fan mounted in the cabinet which keeps it running cool and I keep the condenser clean.
I went to get ice today and most of the ice in the bin was melted and the unit was not cold. So I turned off the icemaker and checked that nothing was falling off and that it had power.
When I turn the unit on, the compressor
starts up, then after about 2 seconds, it shudders and turns off. After a time delay, this repeats. This just started today. So, the icemaker does not get cold any more.
I have another icemaker on the same circuit that runs just fine.
What is the problem?
