  1. Just bought a Serntern Ice maker. Love it already. Ice is hard and doesn’t’ melt quickly. I’d like to order a replacement silicone plau and replacement screw on cap for the drain, in advance of needing them. However, the Customer Service website listed on the manual (service@senternbrand.com)does not go to customer service. It goes to an array of random icemaker sites, etc. How can I get in touch with their parts dept.? There is not a parts list in the manual, either.

    • Please try contacting the seller via Amazon.com or ask the Amazon customer support team. We only review the products. Thanks.

  2. Just purchased theSentern ice maker. It had a small scratch just below the view window But I started the clean before use process & had mild cleaning solution in both sides, when I unplugged drain to empty, the ice basket side drained but the main water tank did not. Any ideas on why it isn’t draining?

      • Yes, I had the same issue. It has to be plugged in. Also, make sure it is on stand by mode. The instruction manual gives conflicting info. On page 7, you are directed to unplug the unit and remove the drain cap. On the bottom of page 9, it says the machine should be in stand by mode…in other words, it should be plugged in to be in stand by mode…this worked to get the main water to empty.
