Q:Can it be hooked up to a water supply?

Answer This Question

A:  The ice maker does not have any connections for a water supply. It comes with a one gallon reservoir only.

by|Jul 6, 2018

    A:  No, you have to pour water into its reservoir to make it run and make ice. Not a commercial icemaker.

    by|Jul 6, 2018

      A:  No, it can not.

      by|Jul 6, 2018

        A:  No.

        by|Jul 17, 2018

          A:  Good afternoon Primosch1229, No, it cannot be hooked up to a water supply. It is a freestanding ice maker and should be used according to the provided instructions. If you have further questions, please reach out to our technical support team at 800-968-9853. Thank you,

            A:  These ice cubes are round cylindrical with hole in the middle not completely through sometimes.

            by|Jun 22, 2018

              A:  Ice is shaped like a cylinder with a hole running thru the center of the cylinder. You get to choose the size of the ice cylinder. Small, medium, large. I like the large.

              by|Jul 26, 2018

                A:  Oval shape. Excellent product. Aaaaa

                by|Jun 21, 2018

                    A:  They are round like small pecans with hole in the center. Makes cooling drinks quick. Love the machine

                        A:  We had it set up on the island in our kitchen during the time we required it. It was the middle of the CA desert summer. I didn't really notice it adding to the room temp, but it is a large kitchen.

                        by|Jun 24, 2018

                        A:  No, not that I notice. I usually run the ceiling fan while the unit is on since it has and air intake with a fan inside.

                        by|Jun 20, 2018

                          A:  It must not. I've never given it a thought. I'm guessing no more than other small appliances. They all (toasters, coffee makers, blenders) add some heat, but I believe it's negligible.

                          by|Jun 19, 2018

                            A:  It does put out some heat via the side exhaust. Side vent reminds me of about the same heat dispersion as a computer tower. Not a whole lot but noticeable if you are right next to it. It also helps to remove the outer cover and blow it out as it will start to accumulate dust and lint and this will cause it to not vent properly and get hot. Had to do this about a year after purchase. Well worth it though. Great machine.

                            by|Jun 20, 2018

                              A:  I have had mine for quite a while now and I run it every weekend for extended periods...I have never noticed any significant heat output. Not around the machine or anywhere else in my kitchen. I hope that helps.

                              by|Jun 21, 2018

                                A:  No

                                by|Jul 6, 2018

                                  A:  Very little heat, but it does need about 4 inches of ventilation room on the sides to make it more efficient.

                                    A:  You just add water. This is what makes it so convenient. You are not limited to setting it up nearest to a water line. Ours is in the opposite end of the kitchen.

                                        A:  No hook up at all. Just add the water!!!!

                                        by|Apr 5, 2018

                                          A:  No. You add the water to a reservoir. The basket holds the made ice over that reservoir so any melted ice goes back in. Very resourceful.

                                            A:  No, you just add water to the reservoir.

                                              A:  You just add water. We use filters water. Unit must be cleaned pretty regularly. Works well and makes enough ice for a small family. We use ours at the bar on our patio.

                                              by|Apr 5, 2018

                                                A:  You add water to a reservoir below the ice basket. There is no way to hook the unit to a water supply.

                                                  A:  No hook-up is needed. Just add about a half gallon of water at a time and let it go, emptying the basket inside periodically. It will light up when the water reserve gets low, at that point you just want to turn the machine off, add more water, then turn it back on. Back to making ice.

                                                    First of all, Home Depot shows the dimensions of the BOX above. Very unhelpful. The CORRECT dimensions of the ICE103 per the Igloo manual are as follows: 11.7" wide x 14.5" high x 14.9" deep. I like this ice maker. While I have not owned it long, it has worked well and makes large size ice cubes every 10 minutes even though the manual specifies every 13 minutes on the large setting. That is more than enough ice for a big party. A major consideration for me to buy it from Home Depot is their Home Depot credit card return policy. They state the buyer has one year hassle free returns for Home Depot credit card purchases. When you consider the possibility of getting a defective ice maker before the one year warranty is up, the manufacturer requires you must ship it back to them. The cost of shipping makes warranty repair within the first year very costly. Being able to take the defective unit back to a Home Depot store in the first year for a refund makes buying with a Home Depot credit card a no-brainer.

                                                      Igloo freestanding ice maker
                                                      We live in an area of West Texas where the water from the spigot is high in mineral content, not palatable and not good for making ice in an automatic ice maker of a refrigerator unless there is an R.O. system in place, which we do not have. We have always bought bottled water for ice and drinking. Our family has had its' biggest fights over who did NOT fill up the ice trays when we were sitting down for a meal. We have gone through three freestanding ice makers in the last three and a half years that have simply broke & just stopped making ice. I don't know if we demand a lot of the product or maybe it's because the others were made in china...this one is made in Canada. At this point in time this Igloo is doing a great job of making ice, day and night, 24/7...my hope is that it will continue to perform as well as it has for the last two months that we have had it.... as it gets real hot out here in Texas. Our family fights have melted away since we have gotten a free standing ice maker.

                                                      So far; so GOOD!
                                                      This is the 3rd portable icemake we have bought; (not of this kind) Our first one lasted about 3-4 years; paid, 299$ (plus S&H) but was bulky and quite nosiey and the lid would slam down on your hand! The 2nd one only lasted a year. I won it on a EBAY for 100$ Both of those had issues with turning off and had to be restarted freg. Both also had "touch" panel controls; which were terrible! This machine has real buttons you can tell you have pushed ! So far, no issue with this machine and the best thing is it is very quite! It makes nice ice fast and they seem much more solid than the machines we have had in the past and don't melt as fast. They stay frozen longer in the container itself, which seems to be better insulated. You will of course have to put some up in a zip-loc bag to keep up with a party;(which we had to do with the others also) but for just my husband and I this keeps up with our needs very well. The best advice I can give anyone out there looking for a ice machine is to use filtered water when you get one; I do believe that is what shorten the life of our others. We now have a different filter on our pump house and on the faucet at our sink where we fill up water jugs to put in the ice machine. I also bought the extended warrity for 25$. I will let you know if I every need it and if there is any hassle with a return. this is the first time ever buying anything from HD and we shall see.
