Is it specks ? If so , then the coating from the ice mold is disintegrating . Replace the icemaker . If the water color is brownish yellow , then I would suggest Home Depot for a filter which mounts to the wall or under cabinet ( about 50-60.00 ) with removeable cartridges . Would not recommend filter where you cut the line and install on both ends (10.00) .

My PT Model IM-600 US ice maker makes cubes but continues to freeze on the ouside of the cube tray blo th cubes from falling into the bucketwhat is wrong.


cubes set too large
Adjusting the Ice Cube Size: 1. Press and hold the "Adjust" button for approximately 3 seconds until the Green Indicator starts blinking, release the button. The unit is now in Ice Adjustment mode. 2a. Press the "CLEAN" button to decrease ice cube size. The Red Indicator will flash as you lower in size and will blink when you have reached the smallest possible setting. 2b. Press the "MODE" button to increase ice cube size. The Yellow Indicator will flash as you increase the size and will blink when you reached the largest possible setting. After 10 seconds without any operation, the unit will return to the previous mode. NOTE: • During the ice adjustment mode, if the "ICE FULL", "ICE MAKING" and "ICE HARVEST" LED's all blink simultaneously, this means setting is at the regular (middle) size. • When the machine is in the cleaning stage or ice full stage, the ice size cannot be adjusted.

The water from our water softener is clear but when i put in the microwave to heat it it becomes a brownish color the same when we freeze it for ice cubes this just started this wk


Most water softeners take out only "trace" amounts of iron or manganese. They are designed to remove calcium carbonate or other similar material in solution. Have your water tested for specific mineral content and get the right softener for that problem.

My automatic ice maker has produced hollow cubes, foul tasting cubes and now they just made cubes with a green color in the middle. What's up?


Hollow cubes usually caused by lack of enough water during fill. My guess is green is mold buildup. Check house water supply to refrigerator. Sometimes the little shut off valves for the refrigerator block up and need cleaned or replaced. Once you get proper size cubes, if taste/ color problem persists they sell small in line filters you can add in the water line to the refrigerator.(about $25.)

How do i get clean ice cubes from frigidare?


In order to get as clean an ice cube as possible, it all depends on the quality of the water that goes into the ice maker. If you have a water softener, your cubes will always be a bit cloudy, since the added salt slows down the freezing slightly and thus the cubes get cloudy.

That said, there are a few things you can do to improve your water. Adding a whole house water filter with a sediment charcoal filter, will remove the impurities and help to improve the overall taste. Then add an inline charcoal filter on the water line into the fridge. That will filter your water a bit more and help further improve the clarity and taste of the cubes.

Beyond that, you might want to look into a reverse osmosis system to really get the best possible tasting water you can.

The old adage of "garbage in, garbage out" is a good analagy for water quality issues, so you need to figure out what's in your water in order to take the steps to treat your water for the best possible results.

I recall that Sears offers free water testing (to help sell water softeners) so that's an option, as well as getting a home water test you can perform yourself.

Hope that helps you with your situation. Best regards!

Ice cube shape


hoshizakis make ice cubes depending on the amount of water in the sump. if you are starving for water the sump only partially fills in the fill time allowed . then it makes ice until the water is used up and the float switch drops and the cubes are little slices. you can adjust the size of cubes you want by raising or lowering the float assembley in the sump. if its to low the water rises and the float rises and tells the machine you happy with little slices. if you raise it up to max height you can max fill before float satisfies and max ice cubes. But if you are starving for water the time to fill will run out before the sump fills and cubes will be small no matter where you set the floats assembly. water starving can be due to crud in the water line, to small a water line, most hoshizes take a half inch line ,or a clogged water filter. if you suspect a filter take it out . if fill is drastically improved you need a new filter. be aware that starving for water on a hoshizaki will eventually lead to broken evap plates. big time expensive.good luck. i put in a new machine ruined by starving water and the new one made little chips of ice real quick. i finally pulled the filter out and voila! big cubes and great production.

Yellow haze


Hi...the yellow haze is probably the blue filter is burnt and needs replaced. This is very common in Zeniths. There are 3 color filters in the Zeniths blue (pinkish in color), green (grayish in color) and the red (it is red). The #1 problem in this TV is the blue filter is burnt and it is an easy fix. It could also be the LCD cube is bad. I would try the blue filter replacement first. It will probably do the trick.

Ice maker quit making ice


your refrig has a built in bypass in the filter housing so yes it will work with out a filter in place. if you have not replaced your filter in the last 6 months that is likely the problem. Hollow cubes are usually a sign of not enough water getting into the icemaker then it cycles too fast and harvests hollow cubes.

when the hollow cubes fall into your bucket they bust and put water in with your cubes freezing them together. so by solving your water supply problem you'll solve most of your icemaking issues..
