      Excellent Little Icemaker

      Posted

      Great for a backup ice maker. I bought a new Whirlpool refrigerator with their new design ice maker located in the door. My old Whirlpool produced enough ice that we never ran out, even after using it to fill a small cooler for drinks. Turns out the new ice maker is smaller than the old models, with much reduced ice output; completely inadequate even for our two person household. I bought this NewAir to make up for the shortcomings of the Whirlpool. I found that I need to run the NewAir about once a week to fill up the in-door container of the Whirlpool, to meet our modest ice usage. I use the large cube setting which produces cubes about every eleven minutes. It produces enough ice to fill the in-door ice bucket in just a few hours. I wasn't sure I wanted the red, but the color has grown on me. The NewAir is compact, and it looks nice, sitting on the counter right next to our refrigerator. I just plug it in once a week to replenish our ice, to be dispensed through the refrigerator door, then unplug and dump any remaining water in our kitchen sink. Works great. I just have to break up the ice after a few minutes, because it's a bit wet when I dump it into the refrigerator ice bin. I read reviews on many different portable ice makers and most of them seemed to have rather high failure rates. The NewAir seemed to have pretty good reliability, so that was a major factor in choosing it. I've had mine over a month, and so far it works fine.

      Automatic stop making ice does not work

      I am hoping I can return this. The machine at the beginning was disappointing as the size of the ice cubes S, M, L were all the same. Still I used it for the past month thinking it had to break in. It's worse now. The ice keep producing though the basket is full. It's producing ice and backing up what makes the ice. I expected so much more and this has been a mistake. I'm hoping Best Buy does the right thing and I can be refunded. $260 waste. I wish I didn't have to say all of this but it's true.

      We are renting and the house had an old fridge. The ice maker was less than ideal. So I bought this and could not be happier. There are 4 of us and we use a lot of ice. This keeps up with us. Also I like that I can use filtered water for the ice. You just pour it in the bottom and in a few minutes ice is ready. We simply transfer it to the fridge and once we have filled up the fridge bin we turn it off until we start to get low.

      I purchased this ice maker for our office which is about 30 people. It consistently makes ice on it's own, and is always full. Occasionally you have to move the ice around and make room for the new ice. If you don't do this, it stops making ice, but that's only because it senses that it's full. Overall this is a machine used by a lot of people, and withstands the use with no problems what so ever.

      I had the machine a little over a year and the metal inside that would create the ice started to rust! Called the company and they wanted me to pay 50 dollars for a replacement (that I would have to replace on my own). It would constantly leak from the bottom of the machine, and very difficult to clean the inside of the reservoir.

      Wonderful icemaker for someone who needs more

      I had a fridge with an icemaker and loved it. I moved to an apartment with a furnished fridge, no icemaker. So I bought this because the reviews on it were so good. I love it too. I get a little low on ice and I just turn it on and have ice very quickly. It takes up a little space, but I have plenty where I am. Fast and efficient.

      Bought this because we don't have an icemaker in the fridge and we use ice cube trays. Ice cube trays take up room that I can use to store other foods so we purchased this stand alone icemaker. Good: Ice produced fast. Compact machine can be used for tailgating out of a van. Bad: Does not keep ice frozen so transferring to freezer the ice tends to stick together after 30 minutes.

      I like idea of having fresh ice all the time when I want ice. I have had the device for a few weeks now and the only problem I seem to be having now is the ice seems to be wet all the time and it sticks together. I have to do more checking on the device itself to see if there is something causing this or if it is just defective. Other than that, this is really a nice machine.
