The ice from my ice maker has small particles in it that look like flecks of paint or metal. I have stainless bottom freezer Kenmore with ice/water in door.


To assist ice from popping out of the frozen mold of the icemaker it is coated with nonstick teflon,just like the teflon on your cookware.That teflon is flaking off of the icemaker mold and the icemaker must be replaced.All you need to do to replace it unscrew it from the side freezer wall,unplug it and instatll new one. The part number is 4317943 you could purchase it at your local appliance parts store on online at;

I have a whirlpool gold and the ice maker keeps overflowing water and freezes all over the freezer-**** the water will not shut off?

That is almost correct, but first you need to make sure that the ice maker itself is ok. Look into it and feel it with your hand, if any of the greyish green teflon coating is chipped, cracked, or peeling, the ice maker will need to be replaced. If not, then you need a new water inlet valve assembly. You can order this part at, Reliable Parts, using your model number. For guided instruction on how to perform your repair, please reply.

Thanks, Repairman45

Ice maker suddenly stopped working, KSRP25FN

If you look in the ice tray and see that the grey teflon coating has worn off, you will need to replace the ice maker. When the teflon coating wears off ic causes the ice to stick instead of sliding out easily. This snaps the drive gear on the module, which ruins the ice maker. Very easy to replace, you can order it at this link,

I just fixed the same problem on a Maytag icemaker.... the aluminum ice tray had corroded (in 5 years!) so bad it had cracked the teflon coating. I took the icemaker out ( 3 screws, 1 electrical connector) and the thing would leak water sitting on the counter.

Whirlpool refrigerator model # ED22PE

The ice coating usually means that your door was left slightly open. Did the ice maker work after you cleaned up the ice?
