An Ice Cube Question

Fri Jan 09, 2004 5:24 pm

One of my buddies (yeah, you know who) has a cool fridge (ha, ha) that has a built-in ice cube distributor. I could not take it apart to observe the inner workings of the device, so how does the thing work ?

Either there is a water cable connected to it or there is a containter inside that you fill up. Then it is freezed (what a surprise!) inside the door, and when you push the button to get ice, you will get ice!

The ice maker signals a watervalve to permit water to flow into the tray.
When the water tray thermostat senses that the tray has reached a certain temperature, it signals the ice maker to begin ejecting the cubes.

There is another version at this link: http://www.forr25.com/steve/joke/icemaker.html

....Adding to ProSimTec, after the cubes are in the "holding tray" and you press the button to get ice, a large corkscrew device like a wine bottle opener (Only bigger) carries the ice to the chute where it is either crushed if you want to sent directly out to a cup or whatever drinking apparatus you have. At least that's how they are in the USA.

Hey, Speedbird Heavy (777236ER), we cannot get married, as UTA is already engaged to a girl, and secondly, I woud never marry someone having a beard (or able to have one).

Anyway, I am not the one he reffers to, as I don't have that feature in my fridge.
