Yes, slip a puddy knife or flat screw driver under the bottom edge and then twist and pull the trim out until it snaps free. There are two slots on the bottom that will easily accept a screw driver.

Our ice maker has rust on ice sometimes and can't understand why or how to fix


You would need to remove the ice storage bucket and dump the ice, check the corkscrew wire in the bucket for any signs of rust, some auger wires were chrome plated and not aluminum. If no rust there, remove the ice maker it's self and check the ice making mold for signs of rust. Replace all rusted parts found. Pleazer Appliance...

I have what appears to be a water leak of some kind in the freezer section near the ice making part of the freezer. You can tell because the freezer is building up ICE all around the bottom of the ICE...


Check to be sure your ICE door chute is closed or closing properly! I have encountered many of these units that have had the flap break off the mounting tabs inside the dispenser opening. If the flap appears to be intact, I would next guess that your ice maker timing is allowing the ice maker to over fill and spill water into the ice bucket.
You can confirm this problem by looking at the ice maker and seeing if the ice cubes in it are filled right up to the center bar that drives the cubes out of the mold.
Let me know if you have any more questions!
Thanks, BOB

How to get to the drain line on my Frigidaire side by side refrigerator model number MRS22WNGW7. Water keeps coming out of the freezer side onto the floor (front left side). I was told it could be a...


I just opened up the back of my Frigidaire Side by Side counter depth to find the drain hose was bent and collapsed coming right out of the bottom of the freezer and the pan was dry as a bone. It doesn't look like my drain hose has ever drained a drop of water. The freezer bottom is full of ice And the rust and chipping paint under the bottom of the freezer door along with the mysterious puddles of water every morning means the drain system definetely never worked. Frigidaire should be responsible for this. This, along with the ice maker rebuild I had to do,... after ice was spilling all through the fridge. I actually had warrantty left on that one and called customer support in India to find out I could make the repair myself. Yep I had to do it. Frigidaire you failed.

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.


when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

Rust


assuming that this is not stainless steel model, for that shouldnt be rusting. but that being said if you look closly at the underside of the facade surrounding hte dispensor youll see 2 little slits approx. an inch in from either side along the bottom, gently pry off with a screwdriver from theses points,( should twist off and lift up, to reinstall simply "hang " on top clips and snap back down into positon.
