To all cusomers out there, im writing to let you no i did houres of reserch and looked and read over 173 units and reviews,, im a perfecional review writer on small appliances only, this gorgoues frigidaire efic117-sscopper-com stainless steel ice maker, 26lb per day, copper stainless i bought on august 2o, 2022 with a the 5 year warrenty that is a must have ins on this ice maker. So you will have i year factory warrenty then after that the 5 year kicks in so you will have peace and mined this unit is covered from a-z on all parts for 6 years >except wear and tear. Take good care of this baby its not hard even though its not self cleaned i belive thats a plus self cleaning machines is one more thing you have to worry about that just may default don’t need it. Its so easy to keep clean i bought these there great > small household cleaning brushes, 8pk-in-1$12.00 deep detail crevice cleaner brush set-micro scrub cleaner tool,tiny cleaning brush for window door track groove small space holes corner gap cap bottle keyboard they work great to get into all corners and i use a spray bottle on stream to rince the whole machine. Now this is a must if you use reg tap water guess what your machine will start to make loud noices and just stop working why? > tap water has all kinds of junk in it that we dont see number one calsium and tons of other bad things in our tap water you will never see, the only water that should go in this machine to get a long heathly life out of it > is filtered water thats it and at room temp never cold for $53 cents a gal i get mine at walmart you listen to me you will not have no issues unless you get a defaulty machine it happines. Very very important when you do recieve your great ice maker, the maual says wait 2 houres before using no wait 2 days > 48 houres is not going to kill you, this lets all the oil and refrigerant or freon to settle in to the moter and all other compartments it needs to go. Please trust me. If you need ice that bad ask a niebor or run and buy a bag > let it rest for 48 houres…. And this is a must always keep the ice maker on a stabile and level space. See all these people that right neg- about the machine like one they sent her a machine that did’t have a large and small button for the ice i think thats bull if so why didn’t she use her 30 day return policy you meen she didn’t no there was no large and small ice buttons for a month come on give me a break, this is a very good machine and investment if you listen to me i wouldn;t be telling you all this, i want you to be happy with your purchace and have no issues all the neg_ nacys that right there foolish reviews didn’t do there reserch like i have another one if you think this machines for a family of 3 or more move on. Peple who don’t read up and do there reserch this is why they end up were they do. I put over 60 houres yes 60 houres of reserch all different models > and i came up with frigerdare for my choice they been around for over 100 + even that i new that i still reserch over 170 different models. And the copper is absalutly gourgoes with my granit and kicthen i love it i will be back once i get my pics to show you all what a great machine this is. Oooo i forgot when you done useing your machine after your done always take the plug out, you just added another 8 months to its life:) remember all im telleing you copy this review so you have it on hand if you listen to me and do all i say you will be one happy camper. One more thing this is how i use it remember (>filtered > remember unplug after every use/and ant time you clean it very inportant! Take care everybody i really hope i help alot of people make the right choice and to all the neg_ nacys do your reserch ! 🙂 sincenry & honestly mr vincent a amazon prime member shopper. Again good luch with you gouroues new frigerdare family.:) o one inporten thing you should keep on hand to always have your ice baby clean just like your central a/c theres filters to keep coiles clean this dont have that so keep a can of air in a can so when you see a build up on the coils you can blow the ccoils and the inside of the moter clean all the time very inportant , to maintain your ice machine and keep it healthy because build up and you dont clean it makes the machine run harder and will over heat it. Very very inportant i think i gave you all the best advise you will get on keepping your baby nice and strong witha long life spand. And i forgot lol this machine is not very loud it sounds like my dishwasher is running thats not bad..all these neg- nacys be gone . Again enjoy because i am and good luck to you and you new frigerdare ice maker, 1 of the top of the line.
I use the machine to make ice daily for my water bottle. I can only drink if very cold and no room in freezer for ice. The cubes are cute with the hole. Funny part is my dog
loves to play with them. What i dont like is if i keep them in the freezer in a container, next time they are one hard block. They always melt a tiny bit, enough to stick. Wish i knew how to stop that.
Also wondering if i can make ice with juice or soda?
We have had this ice maker for over 3 months now, and it works great! You do have to keep track of when the ice basket fills so you can get the ice into a freezer. Please do not buy the ice maker cleaner that amazon pushes with this unit! I just went to clean the ice maker, got the cleaner out, the cleaner says to follow the instructions on your ice maker! Well, the ice maker says to empty the water by removing the drain plug, and wipe the inside down with vinegar and water on a soft cloth, and then rinse it with a damp cloth. Soooooooo, the $29 for the ice maker cleaner is completely wasted! Don’t want to ruin the ice maker by using it!
Our fridge ice maker stopped working years ago. Buying this was (likely) cheaper than a repair visit. Makes plenty of ice, relatively quiet, no energy wasted when we have enough ice. ‘footprint’ is about the size of a toaster oven or small microwave.
Re: durability, we’ll see. I’ll be happy if we get 5yrs of life out of it.
This is the best purchase i’ve made. Doesn’t take up a lot of counter space, super quick and easy to use.
Great for the price! Produces enough for a family of 4. Easy set up and use. Have used this machine for the past 9 months with no issues.
This is a great ice machine – fits on the counter top –
After talking to a relative who had this item, i ordered it and it works great
This product is very good! My family’s ice machine in the fridge stopped working and this was a great replacement. It can get a little loud but nothing that annoys me. Definently recommend!
I love this icemaker! It’s stylish and produces ice super fast! Would definitely recommend.
This little appliance puts off a lot of heat. Running it for an hour raised the room’s temp by about 4 degrees.
How it works
for efficiency, it needs to make a few batches of ice and fill the basket. Water flows over metal fingers until the ice forms. Then it shifts and the cubes drop before a little pusher gate nudges it into basket. There’s a slight ‘clunk’ sound when the ice drops and again when it hits the basket.
It takes forever if you scoop the ice as it releases bc the reservoir gets warm when you open the lid. The first batch or two of ice sits in the basket melting and dripping back into the water reservoir. The water cools and more cold air accumulates in the unit as it runs. It takes a while to get going.
The ice is kind of soft and will melt as it sits in the basket. I let it make a basket full and the transfer the ice into a container in the freezer.
it took about 15 minutes to freeze the first batch and then worked a little better as the water became cooler. The small ice was just too melty and not worth making. The larger pieces were okay, but they also melted easily since there is a partial tunnel in each piece of ice. It cools drinks fine, but i had to use more ice to compensate.
for the price, it’s pretty okay. Mine arrived with a tiny dent in the surface. There’s a small rubber stopper on the bottom of the machine. It’s kind of awkward to empty any excess water and the stopper feels finnicky. Upgrading to a better machine would be 3 or 4 times the price.
This is perfect if you want to save freezer space from ice trays. There is some noise level, but not overbearing. It has a cleaning setting which keeps the ice fresh, clean and unit free of mold or mildew formation. Love the red stainless color too!! The cubes do melt pretty quickly though. There’s no setting to keep ice super frozen.
I’m an apartment dweller now. They do not put icemakers in apartment fridges now because of too many problems. Sooo, this does the job! I fill up 2 1-gallon bags and refill as needed. Or, if you use ice regularly/daily then you can keep it in the maker and it will keep making it.
Indicator lights tell you when water is low or basket is full.
Love this machine, my freezer ice tasted awful, use purified water in the ice machine, beverages taste great now.
Makes ice fast. Had a weird taste at first but that went away the more water that went through it. So far it has worked very well. Our ice maker in fridge broke. Using this instead of filling up ice trays. I fill up freezer bags with ice. Gonna make up extra bags for camping. It is a wet ice. But freezes harder once put in bags in freezer. Shipped fast with no problems.
Update: have had it a month. Been working well. Still makes ice but the power button is flashing green continuously when i power off. No ice is stuck in it. Any ideas why? I have unplugged it to see if it would reset but still flashes green. Still makes ice and works good though.
This works fine but you really have to stay on top of it because the ice bin will fill pretty fast and it will quit making ice once it does.
Other than that it pumps out the ice at a good clip, one of the reasons you have to stay on top of it.
It is a noisy devil, which can be good or bad. I always know when it is full because i dont here it making ice when it auto shut off.
Love this little machine. Worked great. A little noisy when ice falls. I wish the water reservoir had a filter option. It would improve the taste of the ice.
It’s not bad but i for some reason expected the ice to stay. The ice has to be removed and placed in the freezer.
So far so good. Item arrived damaged (see photo). Plugged in, seems to work fine; just wanted to document the shipping damage incase that some how effects the operation
Works fine for what it is. The first one or two batches the ice is smaller, and by the 3rd round they are consistent and reasonably sized on the large setting. Takes about 9-10 minutes per round.
Low enough power to be used with a portable battery such as jackery. The average draw on large setting was about 90w for about 9 minutes. Briefly jumps to 125w for about 30 seconds when it’s dropping the current round, shoveling the cubes into the ice tray, and refilling the water.
