My ice maker has started giving me some hollow ice cubes.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is about 4 to 5 years old. It has the watersupply on the inside of the fridge that is the drinking water spout.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Never. I need experience.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I can look for the original papers to give the exact model.

Hollow cubes are cause when the water supply is reduced to the refigerator. It could be a blocked water filter of the shutoff valve in the house. How is the flow at the watersupply inside the refrig? Turn off the water to the refrig tightly and then open all the way. Does the waterflow get better?
