Ice Cube Question

Tue Apr 08, 2003 7:18 am

OK, here is a really trivial question, but it puzzles me nonetheless; about 40% of the time, my refridgerator freezer will produce an ice cube with a "spike" protruding from the top about 3/4".
It is quite thin, about as thick as a car key, but round in cross section. What does this? Something in the water? Airflow in the freezer? Aliens? If anyone has a theory, I'd like to hear it.

Check your manual on the unit. Depending on the make and model, there is a setting that can be manually adjusted to make the crater bigger or smaller. Our sub-zero has this feature and it is set at the factory recommended setting. This standard setting takes into account the different water qualities available to a given household. The instructions should give you a detailed info as to what your ice maker should be set considering your locale.

Why when you put table salt on an ice cube and hold it against your skin does it burn you? Try it if you don't believe me..

I believe the occurance you mentioned is caused by aliens!!

Techrep, I believe you, a kid at my school did something similar to that but on a much larger scale burning some kids back really bad. Kid nearly got expelled and has abuse charges or something facing him. Not very smart.
