ok i did that but it didn't start running
hold in on the light switch and hold it over longer please
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
the switch that i'm hitting is at the back of the freezer...on/off, behind the icemaker....is that right?
its on the icemaker head itself
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
okay that's what i did.....i turned the switch to the on position....then there's like an arm near it...i pushed that back....nothing happened
where are the ejector fingers that push the ice out pointing
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i'm not sure i know which are the ejector fingers....can you describe them?
the fingers in the tray of the icemaker or rack if you want to call it take
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i'm sorry i'm having trouble understanding....are they near the front of the tray...like right where the ice gets pushed out...or are they in the back of the tray where the ice falls into the tray?
they are in the tray and they are the ones that push the ice out of the tray
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
ok what direction are they pointing? toward the left if that's what you mean
