Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

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 called the ice cube mold? Thanks for your help!

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 .

Coating on maytag ice maker mold peeling & flaking


In this case you have to replace the entire ice maker since the mold section is not sold separately. If you shop carefully you can get the entire shebang for about 40 bucks on ebay.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood


Well, that all depends on the dimensions of, not only the wood, but also the woodchuck itself. There are many different kinds of woodchucks out there and they all very in the amounts of wood it would be able to chuck if woodchucks could chuck wood. So let's start with the woodchuck itself.
1.) Slimmer woodchuck would likely be able to chuck more wood over any given period of time while thicker (fatter) ones would lag behind the quantity of wood chucked, but they may be able to chuck it farther than their slimmer counterpart if that's any consolation.
2.) A smart woodchuck would certainly get more chucking done than one of lesser intelligence because it would be much less likely that a smart woodchuck would get distracted from none wood chucking activities and events.
3.) A friendly woodchuck would be more likely to chuck less wood than a grumpier woodchuck because the friendly woodchuck would want to help other's who were having trouble chucking wood while the grumpy woodchuck is only concerned with his own work.
Now we go over the qualities of the wood that is being chucked.
1.) If you have rather large pieces of wood, then the slimmer woodchuck may have more problems chucking it than the larger woodchuck and may, therefore, produce a lesser quantity of chucked wood.
2.) The length of the wood would affect all types of woodchucks because if all the pieces of wood are of perfect length, then the woodchucks can get good leverage to chuck the wood and increase the wood chucking production.
3.) The type of wood can also affect how well woodchucks chuck wood because lighter types, such as balsa, would be easier for woodchucks to chuck than would maple.
These are the main factors to seriously consider when trying to determine how much wood a woodchuck could chuck if woodchucks could chuck wood, but there are other details that could be taken into account such as, location of the wood chucking, weather conditions of the wood chucking, and the surrounding environment of said wood chucking.
I'm not sure how this relates to your Dell Latitude D410 PC Notebook, but I hope I helped!

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 whirlpool ice maker makes ice but it builds an ice dam and ice cicles on the back of the unit.


there might be a crack in the mold of the icemaker. you can unplug the fridge and take out the icemaker. there should be three 1/4" screws holding it in place. visually inspect the icemaker mold the see if its cracked or flaking. if it is, the icemaker needs replacing. hope this helps.

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.

Water flows out of the back of the ice tray


Hi
You need to check and make sure the fill tube is pointing down into the watercup. A clip would hold it down. Then if thats ok do you have flakes in the ice? If yes then replace the icemaker. If no then you need to check the mold to see if the teflon is peeling off the mold.

Ice Maker has some black stuff in water


check the ice-maker itself, it has a teflon coating (like a frying pan) that sometimes flakes off leaving little black flakes in the ice. if this is the case you have to change the ice-maker.
