How Room Temperature Effects Ice Production

Is the room temperature hotter than normal?

If the room's temperatures exceeds more than 90F (32C), typically ice production will be reduced. The ice bin is not refrigerated, and some melting will occur. The amount of melting varies with room temperature.  

Are there clumps of ice in the bin?

If ice is not used regularly, it will melt and form clumps. Break the clumps with the ice scoop provided. The ice bin is not refrigerated, and some melting will occur. The amount of melting varies with room temperature.  

NOTE: As the room and water temperatures vary, so will the amount of ice produced and stored. This means that higher operating temperatures result in reduced ice production.
