    Default U-Line WCM98 ice maker is cooling but not freezing

    Model Number: WCM98
    Brand: other
    Age: 1-5 years

    Got an U-Line ice maker from a cousin who was getting rid of it because it was not freezing. I plugged it up and let it run all day but it only get cool inside. The inside top of the ice maker does have ice accumulate on it and the inside sides get to about 42F to 50F. The total temperature inside stays at around 45F. I cleaned the coils (they were dusty) but the inside temp will not go any lower. If you need anymore information just let me know and I will gladly provide. Thanks in advance for any advice that you can give me.

    Sounds like low refrigerant. Compressor running continuously?

    It does, the whole thing runs non-stop. I thought that it could be low on refrigerant but I am just starting to learning how to diagnose and fix refrigerators and wanted to ask someone who knows a bit more about them.

    The only way to tell for sure is by connecting a set of refrigeration gauges to the system but that's what it sounds like.
