sorry I had to break off and go away yesterday. Just back now. I will go and try to collate all the info you ask for
Model Number GC2225GEKB
Serial Number 10766145GE
Date purchased 21 September 2005
Side by side refrigerator
Because the ice hopper was always topped up I did not notice the ice maker was not producing until it began to struggle to dispense ice and the shapes were unfamiliar.
It may be that it is totally unrelated to the drawer freezing everything in it
but unfortuneately I cannot remember when the drawer went funny probably around christmas.
the ice problem may have been around for longer because we tend not to use much as it gets colder in the year.
Thank you very much for all that. It seems logical that it is the answer!!
It's just that you forget about defrosting when you have aa frost free unit!
But I did wonder myself if the pipe to the ice maker might have an ica blockage.
I think that I will now go and empty the freezer now into a cool box and start the process off.
Thank you again.
I am very happy with your service so far. it has been my fault that I had to go away for Saturday night and I realise that you have much work to do.
If I 'rate to finish' does that cut us off altogether?
I defrosted the unit last night and left it for 3 hours but the ice maker still is not working
It was funny that there did not seem to be any standing water when it was defrosted!
The fridge is humming away nicely and the freezer cabinet is at -25C according to my thermometer. The drawer feels as if it is at a more normal temperature.
all the best
I think that you may have got it again! However I wouldn't be competent at fixing/fitting anything in the fridge! For years I paid an insurance and then only stopped it last year when I realised the fridge was too old for it to make sense. I think perhaps we will have to live without the ice and eventually replace the firdge.
Thank you very much for your attention and for the help.
I have filled the hopper with ice from iceland and it all dispenses and crushes so I think that this will be my best solution.
Thank you very much for all your help
have a nice day
