Question about Kenmore 54622 / 54624 Side by Side Refrigerator
H-m-m-m. Well, I'm not a chemist or a physics oriented person. My guess is that the air is trapped inside the cube as the ice forms. If there is a fan blowing cold(frigid) air over the cubes in question, it would make sense that the water in the tray would freeze at the coldest point first; that would be the top of the cube as opposed to the point farthest away or the bottom. The temperature of the water would uniform when the water enters the tray but would change in layers (top to bottom) as the cold air draws the heat out of the water (top) and the rest of the tray draws the heat away causing the ice to form through condensation. since the freezing process would occur faster at the top, any air trapped would condense allowing the rest of the water to freeze. Sort of like bubbles under a sheet of ice on a frozen pond. Solution? Are you manually filling the trays or is this an automatic process? If manual, try filling the trays with warm water and check them the next morning. Warm water is supposed to condense faster than cold. You mentioned changing the filter. Is it charcoal? It shouldn't make a difference but the new filter needs to have some water sent through it prior to installing it in the line to remove any loose particles that would end up in your ice. Other than that, adjusting the freezer to a colder temperature is about the only remaining option. Hope this helps. rix20601
