This portable icemaker uses a fully automatic control system, with an advanced microcomputer for easy and convenient ice-making. Making ice is simple and fast. Just add water, plug into an outlet, and press the ON button. You can select one of the two ice cube sizes with the touch of a button. When first turning on the unit or during icemaking cycles, the compressor will stay idle for 3 minutes, while energizing.

There are warning indicators that alert you to fill the water when the reservoir is empty and to remove ice when the storage basket is full. The icemaker also has built-in safeguards that can limit accidental damage, automatically shutting down the system when necessary.

Please read carefully.

  1. The incline angle of the icemaker cabinet should not exceed 45˚ during transportation or use. Do not turn the icemaker upside down.
    Doing so could cause the compressor or refrigerating system to operate incorrectly. When the icemaker is moved or transported, please allow time for the fluids in the compressor to settle. Before using the icemaker for the first time, please wait 2 hours after the unit has been leveled and positioned in its proper place.
  2. Please ensure the icemaker is level and on a stable table or platform
    to avoid malfunction.
  3. The machine must be placed on a dry and level surface with sufficient ventilation, far from heat sources such as ovens, heaters, and corrosive gases. Leave an 8-inch clearance on all sides of the icemaker for proper ventilation.
  4. Do not fill the water reservoir with hot water. This may damage the icemaker. It is best to fill the water reservoir with water at room temperature or lower.

The ice-making cycle starts with water being pumped into the Water Tray situated below the Evaporator Fingers. Over the next 8 – 13 minutes ice forms on the Evaporator Fingers. Once this has been completed, the Ice Tray will tilt backward and the remaining water in the Ice Tray will be drained back into the Water Reservoir. The ice cubes are then dropped from the Evaporator Fingers and pushed forward into the Ice Basket by the Ice Shovel. The Ice Tray will automatically move back into position under the Evaporator Fingers and start the next cycle.
  8. The ‘Ice Full’ LED light will light up when the ice basket is full and the Ice Maker will stop the ice-making cycle automatically. Gently remove the ice from the Ice Basket with the Ice Scoop.

FAQs Regarding Frigidaire EFIC113 Retro Ice Maker

Can I always leave my Frigidaire ice maker on?

If you want ice, you must always keep it plugged in and running. The ice will melt and the water will return to the reservoir if the machine is turned off. This requires continuous use, just like your refrigerator or freezer.

How long does it take to manufacture ice with a new Frigidaire ice maker?

The ice maker may create ice in less than 24 hours after the refrigerator is installed and has cooled for several hours. The ice bin will be topped off by the ice maker from the back. To move the ice forward in the bin, you must dispense some ice.

Why isn’t the ice coming out of my Frigidaire countertop ice maker?

The water supply line may be obstructed if your ice maker has the appropriate amount of water but isn’t producing ice. If you haven’t cleaned the machine in a while, this could develop over time, especially if you have hard water, which can cause mineral accumulation.

Why does the ice maker not start working after 24 hours?

The ice machine and refrigerator need to be at the right temperature. The icemaker itself may require 24 hours to become cold enough to produce ice if it has just been installed. Before a cycle can start, the icemaker mould needs to reach 16 degrees Fahrenheit.

When not in use, should you switch off the ice maker?

We advise turning off the water supply to the refrigerator and turning off the icemaker if you won’t be using your icemaker for a while (for a trip, storage, etc.). Make sure the icemaker is off if you switch off the water supply.

Will the ice machine turn off on its own?

The majority of ice makers are built to turn off automatically when the bucket is full and to turn back on when additional ice is required. Make sure the bucket and any shelf components are in the right positions if ice overflows and the appliance does not momentarily shut off.

Why does my Frigidaire ice maker generate ice so slowly?

Incorrect temperature setting, having too much or too little food within, and a clogged water line or filter are the main causes of a slow ice maker inside of a freezer.

How frequently should I have my Frigidaire ice maker produce ice?

Depending on usage, the ice maker should generate 2 to 3 pounds of ice every 24 hours. There should be about 4 pounds of ice in the ice bin. The water filter might be clogged or past due for replacement if this isn’t happening.

Can my ice machine be sped up?

Lower the freezer’s temperature to make the ice tray’s water freeze more quickly, which causes the thermostat to warm up and melt the ice, which restarts the cycle. The ice maker’s life cycle is complete! Simply reduce the freezer’s temperature by 3-5 degrees to make your ice machine operate more quickly.

Does the ice maker’s room temperature matter?

An ice maker will have to work harder to produce ice in a room with higher temperatures; in fact, an overheated room may be the reason your ice maker isn’t producing any.
