Kelly's Korner - Ice, Ice, Baby

Hey, All!

Well, summer has arrived here with temperatures in the high 80's and 90's - I was raised on the Oregon coast where even if the sun has broken through the fog, temps don't get that high, so I don't do well when it's hot.

So I was at the store buying yet another bag or two of ice and thought, "Ya know, my refrigerator has a hook-up for an icemaker, why don't I have one?  It's not like I don't know where to get one!"  Then gave myself the V8 head slap.

If your refrigerator does not have an icemaker, many of them are equipped to have one added on.  If so, there are kits available that have what you need to get it hooked up.

First, give W L May a call with your model number and we can let you know if there is a kit available for your fridge.  These kits come with the icemaker, water valve and tubing, ice bucket, the fittings necessary to install it, AND instructions.  You may have to purchase an additional kit (which we have, also!) to run a waterline from your nearest water source to the refrigerator.  Or, if you are not at all mechanically inclined, call your favorite appliance technician to install it for you.

If you already have an icemaker in your refrigerator now may be a good time to change your water filter so those cubes are perfect your needs.  Periodic dumping of the ice (especially if the cubes have been in there awhile) and cleaning of the icebucket are recommended, too.  And if there are any issues with your icemaker, give your tech a call.

When you think of the time and money spent on getting bags of ice, the room taken up in your freezer and the agony of running out just as you are making your favorite cool beverage, it will be well worth your time.  I know I will be getting mine real soon!!!!

Have a great week and stay cool!
