the fricking half moon ice cube? WTF, it conforms to the inside of the glass and wont let the liquid out and you tip the glass even higher and then it comes splashing out. #$^%^%&^*'er.

I bet is was the same jackoff that invented the flat roof. BASTERDS!

It was an engineer, he designed it because it is the best shape to not clog up your ice maker. that is, unless you want to shell out 2000 for a pro grade icemaker.

Uh, not to put too fine a point on it, but I believe it is your ice dispenser that has a crushed ice setting...

+1

Engineers make stuff which is best from an engineering perspective but they like to neglect user friendliness.

Im training to neglect user friendliness

DrFrige here with more information than you can really give a shit about.

The half moon design is due to having an ice tray that can fill like a tub with NO HOLES underneath and then have fingers to swoop around and push them out. Now another manufacturer "Mid-South" came up with a slight design change that makes the flat curved side of the cube in a semi circle that prevents that kind of stuff which you dont like.

If you can come up with a better design... You will be a rich man. One manufacturer other than Mid South is Whirlpool and they pretty much have 90% of the market. They make them for Amana, Maytag, Kitchen Aid, Traulsen, yadda yadda yadda.

I hear your complaint at least twice a week... trust me You are NOT alone

Brand?

Chances are that if it is GE and makes those round ice cubes that push up, the pushrod in the middle of the icemaker has a seal that my be bad. that causes a clacier. If it is the one that makes the 1/2 moon cubes, take the white square cover off the front and you will see a water adjustment screw. It is labeled with a '+' and '-' turn it ONLY 1/2 A TURN towards the '-' then wait a few cycles. You may be getting too much water.


If you notice black flakes in the ice as well as the glacier... you are screwed... get a new icemaker. Let me know if it is the case. I may be able to direct you to a supplier that will sell the icemaker at wholesale so you dont have to pay 150.00. for a new one.

We have a Maytag fridge but our house is too backward and doesnt have a water thingy behind the fridge so we didnt get a diispenser.
