"Problem solved!"

This is not a problem for us and the clumps are easily broken up with a knife. I tried to store it in the freezer but it just does work. It circulates the pump for 6 minutes. I buy sonic and Zaxby's ice by the bag. It's pretty exciting to have a gadget like this. I could already feel my blood boiling. Amount of ice- this unit make far more ice than our previous model.

Fluidmaster 12IM60 Final Thoughts

"It dis without a hitch."

This is not a problem for us and the clumps are easily broken up with a knife. Looking over the mixed reviews, I debated buying this. But we love it and I don't regret buying it. The self clean mode is especially helpful. I wasn't sure what to expect when I purchased this, but it actually works quite well. But, after a while, it too became an expensive habit. It's pretty exciting to have a gadget like this.

"I was not disappointed."

Each batch makes about a dozen cubes of ice or so, under 10 minutes. The self clean mode is especially helpful. Even with the price, I have to give this 5 out of 5. Before COVID, I would have people over all the time. It also has a function of self cleaning it. I am using vinegar and it works fine. The squeal would disappear during or slightly after the defrost cycle.

"Highly recommended!"

This time, the unit started to make ice within 15 minutes. The lights surrounding the button tell you the status of the ice maker. Let me do a cliffs notes then ill elaborate. This repeated consistently for about 3 cycles. My nephews were annoyed with me asking them to go to Sonic to get ice. You need to understand how these work. This is a good choice for skipping the run to the grocery store for a bag of ice.

"It makes ice very fast."

Now, as far as the ice maker goes- it has worked flawlessly for the past week. The setup instructions were straightforward and easy to follow. Not to mention the fridge ice maker has been repaired four times in seven years. I go through a ton of ice during the summer. Also, the ice maker isn't obnoxiously loud. But we love it and I don't regret buying it. The other deciding factor for me was the built in cleaning function.

They replaced the machine for free, and it is working well. It did everything a cigarette did, giving me something to do to relieve stress. You need to understand how these work.
