Our Bosch b26ft70sns fridge ice maker is full of ice and has stopped working. I need to figure out how to remove the ice maker and thaw it out. Please advise
If I can be more clear its the actual ice trays that are full of ice and are not rotating. The ice storage box can be removed for access to the ice maker .
The screw was removed by the last service guy and not replaced. It doesn't secure the unit to the wall. It hangs on two short plastic ledges.
There is something behind the ice tray mechanism that is keeping it from coming forward more than two inches. Can't see back there to know what it is.
The screw on the left has been gone for two years. It obviously does nothing. No tabs. I have had my head in the fridge for two days looking for anything that might loosen this ice maker. I need to get information on what is behind the ice maker that is securing it.
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
I can wait to see if someone comes up with an answer. I have checked on You Tube but there is nothing there. Must be a tough nut to crack
Thank you for your continued patience. We will continue the search for a Professional for you.
There is a screw on the face plate that holds the ice maker in place. That is removed. It looks like there was a screw on the left side that is long gone. There are plastic brackets on the top that hold the ice maker in place. Once the ice maker has been moved forward about two inches the ice maker drops down slightly off the brackets. Then something in the back is holding the unit from moving forward. Its not solid and can be moved a bit but I'm worried about snapping some plastic if I pull too hard. This is the second ice maker in this fridge. I have no idea if its after market.
