Question about Refrigerators
Why does Ice maker in bottom freezer keeps getting clogged with small cubes, then quits dropping ice. HELP
Posted by Anonymous on
There's a temperature sensor that turns on the heat element long enough for the ice maker to dump the ice. If it fails it will stop dumping ice.

Ice has bad odor and taste.
1• Ice has picked up odor or
flavor from strong food stored
in refrigerator or freezer.
2• Water running to ice maker
has poor taste or odor.
3• Ice not used frequently enough.
4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
produce fresh supply.
5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying

Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck
