In regard to a clogged ice maker, one major sign your ice maker is clogged is if there is leaking around the ice maker portion of the beverage machine. An easy way to diagnose if the issue is stemming from a buildup of ice is to snake a copper wire through the drains. Using the copper wire, you will feel the buildup of ice in the machine. You can unclog the ice which is causing the leak using the wire. The water will flush out starting with a substantially steady flow then will dwindle as the drain unclogs. When all of the water is flushed, your ice maker has been successfully unclogged! By unclogging your ice maker, carbonation will be improved and your machine will operate more smoothly.
