Unlikely that you can as it is probably snapped into place. Swab it with neat Hydrogen Peroxide. Leave 10 minutes and rinse off.

One of the most common problems with freezers is their tendency to build up a thick level of frost and ice that can disrupt performance. The ice can form on the hoses and cause the fan to freeze up. While you want the freezer to be cold, too much ice is not good for the freezer or the food inside it. There are multiple reasons a freezer could start to develop frost buildup.

Freezer Overstocked
Frost can build up in the freezer if there are too many items inside of it. Air cannot properly circulate around the freezer, so the areas with the sitting cold air can freeze the moisture. Frost continues to build up and accumulate, which then allows it to spread. If food is stocked up near the fan, cold air can't get past it, and the fan itself could develop frost to the point where it freezes and stops working entirely. This can be prevented by not overstocking the freezer and by evenly distributing food throughout.

Temperature Setting Too Low
The freezer should have a thermostat that regulates how cold it gets. If the temperature is set at too low of a setting, the freezer kicks into high gear, the air freezes outright and frost quickly builds up. Adjusting the thermostat to a higher temperature or level can counteract this problem, but you may need to de-thaw the freezer to eliminate the frost that has already built up inside.

Keeping the Fridge Door Open
Many people keep their fridge door open for extended periods of time while they examine the contents inside to see what they want to eat. This can contribute to frost buildup in the freezer, because the fridge is taking in a lot of warm air during this process and the fan pushes it up into the freezer. The moisture in that air is then quickly frozen, and ice can build up substantially as a result. The longer the fridge door is held open, the more likely this can occur, so the best solution is to only keep the fridge open for short intervals and then to not open the door again for a while.
Hope this tips will help you. : )

A refrigerator ice maker that freezes up can be caused by a frozen ice maker fill tube, faulty water inlet valve, too low freezer temperature setting, or a water filter that needs replacing.
Warning! Before attempting to work on any appliance, make sure that all power (electricity) and utilities (water and gas) have been turned off and/or disconnected on the appliance. Read more
First, locate the water supply to your ice maker and turn off the water supply via the shut off valve. You may want to have a bucket and towels on hand for any extra remaining water in the water supply line.

The fill tube and water supply line supplies water to your ice maker. The fill tube can be a separate part that connects to the water supply line and it enters from the back of your freezer and into your icemaker. You may need to remove your icemaker to see this tube and to check if it is frozen.
If the fill tube is frozen, you will need to thaw it out using hot water pored over the tube using a turkey baster, or else remove this part from your refrigerator and thaw it out in the sink. You can remove this part from behind your fridge by unscrewing a few screws and detaching the water supply line. Thaw in your sink and reattach.
Some methods suggest using a hairdryer to thaw out this part. Be careful when using this method as dripping water and electricity could lead to a possible electric shock. Also, exposure to long periods of heat could damage the fill tube part.

Replace the Water Filter

If you have a refrigerator water filter, check to see if it needs replacing or consider replacing it.

Reset the Freezer Temperature

Check the temperature setting on your freezer as it might be set too low. You may want to bump it up a degree or two.

Test the Water Inlet Valve

You may want to also test the water inlet valve. The water inlet valve controls the flow of water into the ice maker and is located in the rear of the refrigerator behind the back access panel. Sometimes this part can go bad and overfill the ice cube tray when it is not needed.
The water inlet valve also has a screen filter that can become clogged with sediment and minerals from hard water over time. Remove the water inlet vale from the refrigerator and use a flat head screw driver to remove the sediment screen from the part. Clean the filter screen using soap and warm water and replace. Reassemble all parts and test your ice maker.

The Igloo 100 series portable icemakers that are sold all over for about $100 have several minor issues. For ADD WATER light, there are 2 main ones. The water SENSOR is located at the top right of the unit. Remove the BACK cover with 6 screws on the bottom. Remove the TOP assy with 4 screws from inside the case. When the TOP is off, facing the unit from front, you see the small silver wire at the back right. Clean it AND the screw visible thru the hole in the plastic at the end of the sensor wire. The screw is the GROUND side of the sensor. This fixes many of the issues. But the SENSOR senses water FLOW, not water LEVEL. If the PUMP is not moving water, the sensor assumes you are OUT of water and turns on the ADD WATER light. The pump apparently burns out easily. Remove the PUMP wire connector from the CONTROL BOARD and check for continuity in the motor. Be sure your multimeter leads actually touch the connectors. The connection end is too small for most meters, so probe from the backside of the connector. If motor is good, check for 12vdc at the board side of the pump connector. Plug in, turn on. Should be 12vdc within 45 seconds. See, the water pump comes on first. When water is moving over the sensor, then the board will turn on the compressor and start freezing.

The other issue with not making ice is the crazy condenser coil is a PULL THROUGH. Air enters the machine through the bottom and exits the side. Should be the other way around, because the condenser coil easily stops up with lint and other debris in the air. This creates a high pressure condition for the compressor that will either shut the unit down or cook the compressor. Clean the entering air side of the coil with a brush and blow compressed air through from the fan side. to clean the inner portions of the coil.
