Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The ice cubes come with white powder

We just bought this fridge from The Brick. It is a floor model with minor surface scratches. That is ok for us.

But when getting ice cubes from the ice despneser, all ice cubes are coated with some type of white powder as we found in the cup. Not usre what it is, we may need to cleaning up before use for any new fridge (the user manual is missing for this floor model).

One more thing is the light bulb is missing in the water despenser, where we can buy one?

Thanks in advance.

Hey there....
The white powder in your ice cubes is the water line to the dispencer,The water in the pipe forms a white layer after some time,almost like the kettle around the aliment,you just have to clean the pipe out,i normaly use some hot water with a bit of vinigar,just make sure you flush the system after wards and there you go....

Hope you get it right...

Wouter.

    My Stainless Steel LG is BRAND NEW but has white powder falling out of the ice maker dispenser. It cant be a build up of anything because it's brand new! So what is the white powder that continues to fall out? Yes, I have a brand new filter on it as well. (And I stopped using the ice maker weeks ago because the ice had a funny taste).

    Wouter, are you saying that I will constantly have to clean this line? I have only had my new refrigerator for about 4 weeks! It is quite upsetting to think I must do this every month for the life of the refrigerator. Hoping I misunderstand, Lol. Thank you for your comment.

Floating bits in Whirlpool fridge-freezer crushed ice water


Ice cubes freeze from the outside, so the center of the cube is the last to freeze. Ice is pure water, only H 2 O, so as the ice cube freezes, all of the dissolved minerals are pushed to the center. Near the end of the freezing, there isn't much water left in the center of the cube, so these minerals become very concentrated, and they form the "white stuff" – the technical name is precipitate. The hardness minerals that cause the "white stuff" are not toxic.
