How to Troubleshoot an Emerson Ice Maker

The Emerson ice maker is a portable unit designed for use in recreational or marine vehicles as well as for any function when a steady supply of ice is desired. The unit includes an ice scoop, water drain cup, control panel, ice basket, ice size selector, full indicator and automatic shut-off. Sold online and in many appliance or culinary supply stores, the ice maker is simple to use and should function well under most circumstances. Problems that do arise may be resolved through some troubleshooting efforts.

Step 1

Connect the power cord on the Emerson ice maker to a grounded, three-prong outlet if the ice maker will not operate. Replace or reset the circuit breaker or fuse as necessary.

Step 2

Turn the power to the ice maker off and add cold water to the "Level" mark if the "Add Water" light is illuminated. Wait three minutes and then restore power.

Step 3

Remove some of the ice from the bucket if the "Ice Full" light is illuminated.

Step 4

Turn off the power and wait for some of the ice to melt if ice is sticking together. Wait at least three minutes before restoring power. Select the small ice cube size and use water between 45 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit for the best results.

Step 5

Empty the water tank and refill with water between 45 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit if no ice is being produced but there is power to the unit. Use only in settings with ambient temperatures below 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
