Built-In Ice Cube Flashing, No Alarm Chiming


  • Water valve energized longer than 35 seconds
  • Ice maker disabled
  • High or low water pressure
  • Failed water valve

Core Issue:

  • Why is there a single ice cube flashing on the digital display?
  • What does a flashing ice cube on the digital display mean?
  • Why is the ice maker not working when an ice cube is flashing on the digital display?
  • Error code, wrench service icon flashing, single ice cube icon flashing, no alarm chiming

Steps to Verify Issue:

  1. Verify no additional service messages, icons, or error codes appear.
    • If the water filter icon appears, replace. Refer to the product use and care guide for further information.
  2. Confirm there are no recent plumbing or water pressure issues in the home.
  3. Ensure the water supply source is turned on.
  4. If installed, ensure the inline water filter is not expired.
  5. Ensure there are no obstructions or jammed ice cubes in the ice maker assembly.
  6. Hold the Alarm key momentarily. The display will read CFC (Clear Fault Codes).
  7. If the cube continues to flash, hold the Max Ice and Ice Maker keys together for five seconds.
  8. Verify ice cube icon is no longer flashing.
