So, here's one for y'all. I have a Kenmore Model 106.8580210. It has the simple sort of ice maker, just a collection tray (no through-the-door stuff).
I came home to find my refrigerator had been off for a couple days and had warmed up completely.
Investigation determined my AC unit, which is on the same circuit (don't ask), tripped the breaker and caused the outage.
After it cooling down, I noticed it wasn't making ice. So, after reading a few threads, I poured some water into the ice maker to verify that IM itself was working. Sure enough, some hours later I had a batch of perfect ice cubes.
At this point I concluded the feed line may be frozen, so I prepared to buy a turkey baster to try to melt it with hot water. Before I did so, however, I noticed the thing had actually made a second
batch of ice!
"Problem solved", I thought.
Not so. Since then, it's been several days, and production has totaled maybe 4 or 5 batches. Usually the whole tray would be full by now.
I thought maybe the feed line was partially frozen, but this would seem (I would think) to lead to smaller ice cubes, rather than slower production.
What do y'all think I should do?
