Sense detected a device a while back that I think is the ice maker in my fridge. I’m not sure how I can confirm this.
Oddly, this device has been on for almost 6 hours straight now. It’s never been on for this long before, normally under 1 hour.
Here’s the plot since April 1:
We were out of town 3-5 April and home very little this weekend, so perhaps that makes sense for an ice maker.
Here’s the plot starting Sunday evening:
On Monday, we had a tech out to replace the temperature sensor on the fridge side because the fridge was freezing. We unplugged the fridge from roughly 10-3 (probably the gap between the 2 spikes that day on the graph).
This is the start of the current stretch of being on:
The rest is pretty flat
When I noticed it has been “on” for so long, I inspected the ice maker to see if I could see a problem. I don’t know how/if it explains the device being on for so long in Sense, but I did find that being unplugged for so long allowed the ice to defrost enough that a dam of ice cubes had formed around and out of reach of the blades that spin the ice into the chute. I used a fork to break these up so hopefully that corrects that problem. Even so, the device I have labeled ice maker in Sense remains on for now.
Any ideas how I can confirm what this device is? Does this look like other ice makers the community has seen? (I have a Samsung side by side, but I’m guessing the signatures are similar enough).
This is the “normal” run before this long stretch of being on:
