Question about Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
The reason this happens is because if the ice sits there too long it starts to merge together into one big clump. My old refrigerator also had a slight leak that would cause a drip right along the back of the cube holder, so that there would always be an icicle there. I had it serviced a couple of times and had them reduce the flow of water into the icemaker and that helped, but it would still happen to some extent. The only thing that would really work was pulling the box out a bit, using my hand to remove the icicle that formed, and then shifting all the ice around the back so that it wouldn't stick. Doing this *every* night was the only thing that worked.
My new refrigerator has the cube box right on the door when you open it so this is less of a problem. But old ice still tends to stick to itself and I will empty out the box every month or so to make sure all the ice is fresh and not sticking.
What you tried sounds like a neat idea, but I suspect it won't work. And the cubes might start to taste a little funny. The hard way is the only thing I know works for sure.
