the ice is tubular - it freezes on these "fingers" then heats it just enough for the ice to fall off - making hollow tubes

Answer: 
There is a sensor on the inside of the unit, that indicates when the tray is full then dumps. Make sure you don't have the sensor covered. If you keep your ice scoop in the unit, try taking it out.

Answer: 
It has small medium and large cubes. It is not crushed - but I understand that crushed ice is colder than most ice cubes - this shape of ice and size is probably a middle ground between the "sonic" ice and the cubes you would make in a regular freezer.

Answer: 
Yes. If the unit fills up with ice and you don't dump it, it will shut off. The ice will melt, going back into the tank. When you hit the start button again it will reuse the same water.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 124 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very usefull, since the fridge could not keep up with 5 people daily. This has been a valued purchase and has proven itself useful in a variety of parties. I have people in my household and the fridge ice maker could not keep up with the demand. Especially with guests almost daily to boot. This standalone ice maker just keep chugging out ice cubes all day and night. We just need to keep it fed with water. Shure it does not keep the ice cold for long periods. but as I said we use ice constantly in my house so this is not a problem. If you need to keep the ice you have to remove it and place it in a freezer. Sometimes I do keep some zip lock bags full for use in a cooler, no need to buy ice for a trip out to the beach. Money saver. August 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2 Defective Units/Want Order again Have purchased 3 of these now. The first one was good. Quiet. Ice tasted well. No problems. Needed another. The second was loud, had a horrible smell when it was running. Even gave it a few days for the smell to go away. It did not. The ice had a metallic taste. I returned it. Got another. It was quiet, like the first, didn't smell bad, but it leaked. Returning yet again. Will order a different brand now. October 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Ice Maker This is my second purchase of an Ice maker, the first one that I purchased was way too small, it actually made ice quite fast but you almost had to be standing there to empty it or it would cut off. After learning about the features of Ice makers, I found this one online at Home Depot and liked the reviews, very happy that I purchased it. It is a quality machine, very quiet, holds 4.5 lbs of ice cubes before shutting off, I believe that the first one would hold 1.5 lbs of cubes, not very much, so you can make a bunch of ice with minimal effort. It is also a very nice looking machine. I found that putting the finished cubes in gallon bags before putting them in the freezer is much better than just dumping them into the freezer, the cubes are wet when coming out of the tray into the storage area so if they are in the bags, after freezing you can break them apart before transferring them to your ice storage area instead of having a clump of ice cubes to break apart. Overall, a very good purchase. One other thing that helps is to let the machine cycle a few times with the cubes dropping back into the water before putting the catch tray back in, this allows the water to get much colder and the cubes to be much harder and larger.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Used all summer Love the machine and have used it all summer. Only thing I noticed is one of the water level probes is rusting and leaves some rust particles in the the water sump. September 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product works I decided to try this unit after reading the online reviews and doing online research comparing the user reviews and ratings services. Its only been about a month or so of daily icemaking but it is chugging right along. I make several batches each day and freeze the cubes in gallon plastic storage bags. One or two solid whack on the 2" wooden cutting board separates the cubes for putting into refrigerator/freezer ice tray for serving. I had previously brought from a different manufacturer but the item was malfunctioning on arrival and refused to make ice cubes. Decided to try this unit - it is meeting or exceeding my expectations so far. February 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome ice maker, but was delivered dented Very nice ice maker, though was dented in delivery. Great features, easy to use. Ice drops sort of louder, my dogs bark at it, but I really doubt any ice maker is quieter. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ice maker does it's job! As though this needed yet another positive review. This ice maker ROCKS! I did a lot of research before I bought this model and this one came out on top everytime. We have a new LG Double French Door refrigerator w/ice in the door. It only produces 20 cubes of ice in a 24 hour period! We HAD to supplement it. This does exactly what it says it will and really does make ice in under 10 minutes! I just bag it after it comes out and stick it in the freezer. The machine is not a freezer, so the ice will melt if left in the machine too long. BUT, if it does melt, the water just goes back into the machine to make ice for the next batch. Buy it! You won't regret it! January 10, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Little Machine Can't say enough good things about this ice maker. Have had it for over a month now. Own a small restaurant and have needed to buy ice by the bag at great cost. Since the day I received it, this little wonder has been cranking out ice at an amazing rate. Now we need another freezer. It is compact, efficient and quiet (for an ice maker) I don't understand the problem that some have, all you need to do is follow the directions and use good water and soon you will have more great tasting ice than you know what to do with. At the rate is is going it will more than pay for itself in another couple of months. I highly recommend this machine for anyone that needs a lot of ice. May 22, 2013
