One Ice cube gets stuck
Model Number: KSRG25FKBT05 Brand:
Kitchen Aid Age:
5 - 10 years
I recently replaced my compressor motor relay as it had burned out. However, another problem I'm having is that one ice cube always gets stuck in the right most portion of the arm stripper after the rake dislodges it from tray. It wedges into the "V" and gets stuck then freezes there. Has anyone else had this issue and know what the problem might be? This same problem was occuring before I replace the compressor relay. This fridge is right at 10 years old. Not sure if it's a weak ice cube tray motor problem or what....otherwise it seems to make ice fine and goes through the cycle (until the one cube gets stuck and blocks the rake). The remaining cubes get dumped into the bin correctly. This is the side the water fill tube is on and is opposite the motor at the far end of the tray. It's on the right side when standing in front looking into the freezer. Years ago when we first bought the fridge we had a problem with the water fill line freezing up and a service repair tech put about 1.5" of tape over the right hand side of the air deflector shoot so it wouldn't blow directlyl on the line. It worked fine for years so I don't think that has anything to do with the one cube getting stuck. Any ideas on this? Has anyone seen this before? Common issue?
