For refrigerators with ice maker options, Johnson Electric provides DC gear motor technologies for a wide range of ice making and ice dispensing requirements. For indoor or in compartment ice dispensing, Johnson Electric’s technology platforms include high torque gearmotors that overcome a number of common error modes, including insufficient torque to clear ice jams or blockages.
Global industry leaders in home appliance design choose Johnson Electric for their motion application needs. Home appliances continue to offer more and more features and options to the residential user. Through-the-door ice dispensing is one example. Refrigerator door dispensing includes both ice cubes and crushed ice. The through-the-door ice delivery options require that cubed ice move from the storage bin either to a crusher to be dispensed as crushed ice or to bypass the crusher and be delivered to the user’s glass as ice cubes. The gear motor driven auger provides seamless delivery of ice options to the home owner.
