My ice is very cloudy and when we add water there is a lot of sediment in it. I have changed my filter in the refrigerator more often then stated and we still have the problem. Do we need to change the ice maker for some reason? Secondly, we have a water filter system in our house. Can we add the refrigerator to the line so it can help with cleaner water? Thank you!
ANSWER Hello Dani,
The only issue with the filtration system is water pressure. If you drop below the specified pressure for the water valve, it will cause ice maker production issues up to and including ice production stoppage. There are accessories available that can kick the water pressure back up. I would check the water pressure at the output of the filtration system and go from there in making my decision.
As far as changing the ice maker, I would be more likely to remove it and clean it out with hot white vinegar. The lines in the unit are the greater concern. Mineral deposits tend to stick inside the lines and of course mineral deposits stick to mineral deposits, so the longer you let it go, the more severe the issue will become. I would add an external filter GXRTDR in-line just before the water supply connects to the unit. These are cheaper than the on-board filters and are not hard to change. This would keep more of the sedimentation and mineral deposits out of the unit.
