Ive tried so many anti-freeze lubricants but still the internal gears get frozen up with ice --- suggestions ??
Why is water getting into the gear box in the first place?
Is this frig made by LG by some chance? There is a problem with that on the LG frig made for Sears. Had the same problem and ended up replacing the entire ice maker, but there is still a minor water leak related to it somewhere. The fill tube for the ice maker is part of the problem, in my opinion.
You might also be experiencing a freezing problem in the frig in the crisper drawer.
