Got a call from a client about a problem with icemaker on AMANA SxS fridge. I think this is a fridge made by DAEWOO. Client lives quite far away and I want to go there well prepaired. Complaint is that when he forces a harvest the tray turnes 180 degrees put does not release the ice cubes.I am familiar with regalur AMANA ice makers' regular or modular type but know very little about flextray machines.
My logic however says that when it turns the tray 180 degrees some pin on the mold must hit the body while the motor is still turning or the mold must hit a stopper on the body and cause the flexing of the tray to release the cubes. Are there any repair procedures for these machine or is it better to replace the whole unit. Any help appreciated.

How old is this? It's not an old Admiral is it? If so, the flex tray will get mineral deposits in them, which makes the cubes stick to the tray and the fix is to replace the tray

Not finding much info on this model


btw please do not add spaces in your model number. Not only will this thread not show up when others search the site for info on this model, but it is also a pita when trying to find info to help you as it makes copying and pasting the info into search engines unnecessarily difficult. Thanks

answer my simple question, what causes the tray to flex and release the ice. Is it a stopper-pin on the tray or body of the icemaker or some microswitch. Will try to add some pictures my customer sent me(not very good quality) Thanks MichaelAttached File  Mobogenie_20141017_184958.jpg   97.79KB   0 downloadsAttached File  Mobogenie_20141017_185033.jpg   96.21KB   0 downloadsAttached File  Mobogenie_20141017_185048.jpg   89.71KB   0 downloads
