Question about Refrigerators
Integrated Ice System has black particles on the ice when I use the button on the door. But if I open the door, pull the IIS (integrated ice system) out the ice has much less black particles on it. [a friend of mine made the assumption that this could be the minerals or something in the filtration system getting out, but neither of us are experts on the situation]

Icemakers=troublemakers. About 9 of 10 failures occur there first.
You didn't state whether the water supply is still present or the motor that drives the eject mechanism is still trying to turn.
Check your water supply at the rear of the unit to see if it is getting any, and change any filter through which the supply water flows.

Hello. Woobie here.
A new filter contains activated carbon, and, if your particles are dark, this is probably the problem. A new cartridge will have some loose material in it, and this flushes on through to the dispenser(s). The fix can be effected two ways: If the filter is new, remove it and dunk it in a pot of water several times, draining it between dunkings. This decants the loose materials and will alleviate the particulates. If the filter has been in a while, tha particulates will have mostly moved on through the system (and into your system!). Activated carbon is not harmful. If you fall somewhere in between the lengths described, decanting the filter may still provide some relief, again, depending on how long it has been in service. As a general rule, always dunk and decant a new filter prior to installation to keep the particulates to a minimum.

Well Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat. Please post comments for more help or information.........
