My Refrigerator Won't Freeze My Ice

Save

Under ideal circumstances, the freezer section of your refrigerator is cold enough to freeze water. If your freezer does not create ice, it could be caused by one of several frequently reported issues. Troubleshooting your fridge's temperature settings will attempt to relieve the most common problems and return the appliance to normal operation. This task will take about 15 minutes.

  • Place ice-cube trays inside the freezer section, if your fridge does not have its own ice maker; refrigerators are usually only around 37 degrees Fahrenheit and are not cold enough to freeze water.

  • Verify that the freezer's temperature is set correctly. Make cooler by turning the dial inside the freezer section to a higher setting. Adjust the temperature to 0 degrees Fahrenheit, if your refrigerator has digital temperature controls.

  • Confirm that the freezer door can close properly. A full freezer can cause food items to push the door open and allow cool air to escape. Reduce the amount of food in your freezer if it too full to close. A tightly closed freezer door results in the best ice-making temperatures.

  • Inspect the rubber gaskets surrounding the freezer door for signs of corrosion or damage. Cracked or broken gaskets can allow air to escape as though the door were open and reduce ice-making efficiency. Contact your local appliance dealer for advice on repairing your gaskets.

  • Contact the manufacturer if your freezer remains too warm for ice production, as there may be a more serious technical fault preventing your freezer from working properly.
