IMPORTANT
Small ice cubes or ice chips jamming
in the
ice maker may be a sign that your water filter
needs changing,
tf you have a side mounted
ice
maker you may also experience
hollow cubes
-- partially frozen cubes with water inside. When
these cubes are harvested
they break open and
spill water over the other ice cubes
in the ice
container,
forming a solid mass of ice. As the
water filter nears the end of its useful life and
becomes
clogged with particles,
less water is
delivered to the ice maker during each cycle.
The ice maker can't fill every cube in the ice
maker mold, leading to small cubes or chips that
can get caught between
the ice ejector
blades
and the stripper.
Remember,
if your ice maker
is jamming
with small ice cubes or it's been six
months or longer since you last changed your
water filter
-
replace the water filter with a new
one. Poor quality household
water may require
the filter to be changed
more frequently.
