A whole house filter is normally a terrible waste of money as why filter water to be used for flushing toilets?

Ans 2 - The first answer does not have relevance to the question.

Your refrigerator has it's own inline filter. -It appears that it's time to change it. -This is generally quite simple and the filter can be bought at any appliance parts store. Be sure to have the make, model and ser # when buying this (or any appliance parts )

How do you get freezer taste out of ice cubes?

you can let it sit out on the counter, or in the sink!! If that does not work then put it in the sink and put hot hot hot water in the sink and let it sit their for about 15 minutes!! Sometmes it may no be freezer taste if there is raw meat and fish in the freezer then this may be the problem the ouder of the meat and fish may be on the ice leaving an unpleasant smell and taste. So to overcome this, store the ice cube tray in a sealed container and store it in a sepaerate shelf on the top.

What should you do if your ice maker made lots of ice and then suddenly started only making a few ice cubes a day?

Answer

Check the water inlet tube at the ice maker. It is probably getting blocked!

Answer

Or the solenoid valve is going bad, or it is plugged right before it. In rare cases you could try a defrost of the freezer to see if there was a partially frozen tube.

How do you clean an automatic ice maker?

I'm not an expert, but this is how I "clean" my automatic ice maker. Sometimes it completely stops making ice, so I take the compartment out and let it thoroughly defrost and at the same time, unplug or shut off your freezer and let it set at least 2-3 hours. Plug it back in or turn the freezer back on after this time period and this should do the trick. If not, you may need to call a professional.

What would cause an ice maker to go out in a top freezer Whirlpool designer style if it was making ice three days ago?

They have to break sometime. The day it breaks has nothing to do with why it broke. Check your water line and make sure the unit itself hasn't worked loose from the power connector. If that doesn't do it, you can try emptying your freezer and letting it all thaw then seeing if that helps. Sometimes there can be an ice chunk keeping it from moving. Other than that, all you can do is replace it.

How do you hook up an ice machine?

I've changed the Ice maker and the wated controler on the back of the Frige.... But when I turn the Ice maker on nothing happens. It's been on several hours now and no water has filled the the resovoir. I am thinking that the device should rotate and will release water into the resovoior. Is this correct or should water flow in once it's hooked-up?

Can you make flavored ice in an ice maker?

I really like Coca-Cola. And we are doing a school project where we all have to make an invention. And I hate how whenever I go to Sonic, and I order my Cola, they always put ince in it. And if I put it in my frigde, or even just leave it out, the ice melts, and then the flavor of my Cola is all watery because the ice melted. So what I am doing, is making an invention that can make your drink, into the ice cubes so that even after the cubes melt, it still tastes like my Coke. So I need to know one thing before I pour a cup of Coca-Cola into my ice machine, I need to know, will this mess up my ice-maker? My mom and I are thinking that the sugar in the Cola might clog up the Ice Machine. PLEASE! Help me.

If you search for flavored ice maker in Google Patents you will find a patent for "Flavored Ice Maker Cartridge" . So, a patent for what you're trying to do has been issued.

If you pour Coke into your ice maker, you'll need to make sure the water to your ice maker is turned off. Once the ice maker has emptied of ice you can pour the Coke into the ice maker. Once the Coke is frozen, the ice maker will automatically empty. Then you can keep pouring Coke or whatever liquid you want into the ice maker every time it has harvested the ice.

Once you've turned water back on to the ice maker for normal operation, you'll probably be having Coke flavored ice for a while, but other than that you shouldn't have any problems.

How do you clean the water filter on your ice maker?

It is easier just to replace the filter. Most just unscrew and the replacement screws back on.

Water filters generally should be changed every 6 months on average... Cleaning them is usually not an option. They're not incredibly expensive and they make a world of a difference in terms of adding to the longevity of your ice maker. You can find a good selection of them here: http://www.icemachinesplus.com/water-filter-store .

Ice machine does not make ice?

No, Ice machines don't make ice.They simply pass ice through the machine and into your glass. To refill an ice machine, you put in cubes that are already made. Ice machines can also crush cubes but once again, they are already in the machine and made.
