Orange flakes like a thin scrapes of wax show up in ice and water

Refrig not used for a year. Now 2 new filters tried. Thin flakes of orange "stuff" in water and ice. House water is clear. Problem seems to be after the filter. What/where could this be happening?

There was water in the lines that evaporated and this is the residue that was left. If you gan get to the inlet, put some full strength white vinegar in it and let it soak for 10 - 30 minutes. This will soften and break loose the remaining deposits. Connect the water supply and flush well.

The inside coating has come off the inside of the ice maker . The white " flakes " is calcium deposits , sticking to the exposed cast metal , inside the ice maker , and sticking to the cubes , after water freezing in the mold . You need to replace the ice maker .

You may need to replace the water reservoir located behind the crisper. They are known to flake and cause the problem you describe. They are usually replaced with a coil of water line instead of one larger reservoir to stop the problem.

The water is overflowing from the freezer onto refrig shelf


Yes, let the unit thaw out, and replace that thin wire. it's called a drain heater, it simply keeps the water from freezing before it gets out the drain.

Ice Maker has some black stuff in water


check the ice-maker itself, it has a teflon coating (like a frying pan) that sometimes flakes off leaving little black flakes in the ice. if this is the case you have to change the ice-maker.
