Try setting the freeze temperature down to the initial setting selection. Your freezer is getting to cold. Hope this helps.

Woodchuck told someone that the flakes coming out of their ice could be the ice mold coming apart. That's the problem I have. Pieces of that mold are flaking off. Do I have to replace that part? What is it...


Replace the complete ice maker . Less hassle and maybe $ 125. total . Only 2 or 3 screws hold the ice maker in place . If you have a side by side , buy the kit for your model . Usually kits are less expensive than buying the ice maker by itself , even though you only use the ice maker out of the kit .

Black specks in ice


2 things can cause this. The coating on the inside of ice maker is coming off which is rare, or the inlet valves rubber o-rings are coming apart, this usually occurs when the ice maker has been off for a while. You should be able to see if the ice maker is flaking off or not. The repair is to replace the part.

Ice from my ice maker has black specs and white flaky stuff in it.


The black specs are probably pieces of the icemaker mold coming off white stuff is probably calcium deposits. The only way to rectify this is to replace the icemaker.

Our Whirlpool Refrig GD25DFXFW02 is working fine our problem is the ice maker , the cubes contain white flakes, is there a coating on the ice maker that could be chipping off> We have changed the filter...


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 .

My ice maker produces ice with white flakes in it, and slowly.


If you also get the flakes with the water from the water dispenser it could be the water chiller reservoir behind the crisper in the fridge. If it's just the ice maker the non stick surface in the ice mold may be coming loose.

Undissolved minerals can appear when ice cubes are added to chilled drinking water. Freezing tap water causes dissolved minerals to solidify and scatter, giving a cloudy appearance. When ice cubes melt, any undissolved minerals settle to the bottom. These mineral compounds in our drinking water are naturally occurring and safe.
Sometimes we see black particles which can be the non-stick surface of the ice mold flaking off.
