When repackaging the failed electroniccontrol assembly in an antistatic bag,observe the previous INTRODUCTIONOVERVIEWThe primary objective of the IN-DOOR Ice Sys-tem is to increase the usable space in thefreezer compartment of the current freestand-ing side-by-side refrigerator/freezer.
5 The solu-tion is to relocate the ice maker, the ice con-tainer, and drive mechanism, and replace thiseye-level volume with a cantilever shelving sys-tem. The following description is intended torelate the changes that have been made fromthe current side-by-side ice & water dispenserconfiguration. The description is divided intothree categories: Ice Making, Ice Storage, &Ice MAKINGThe ice maker module and mold have not beenchanged from the current models. However,the location, mounting method, air delivery,water delivery, ice stripper, and ice level shutoffhave all been & MountingThe ice maker has been relocated to the topfront of the freezer liner, and has been rotated90 . Due to code requirements, the ice makerheater area is now protected by a plastic (PVC)mounting bracket. The bracket is attached tothe ice maker with three mounting screws, andis held in place by grooved tracks on eitherside of the freezer (1 of 3)Air DeliveryAir is delivered to the ice maker mold througha duct.
6 This duct hooks onto the rear air ductat the back of the liner, and is secured to thetop of the liner with two screws. The duct di-rects approximately 50% of the freezer air for-ward to the ice maker mold. The mountingbracket, mentioned in the previous section,also serves as an air director, and directs theair that is delivered by the duct, under the mold,and allows it to escape just under the ice Duct2-2 The water tube is made of polypropylene withan overmolded santoprene nozzle. Due to therigid nature of the polypropylene, this tube ismated to a more flexible polyethylene tube witha John Guest fitting high on the back change of material is necessary to pre-vent kinking when the tubing is attached to thewater DeliveryWater is delivered to the ice maker mold bymeans of a tube-within-a-tube design. A con-duit SYSTEM consisting of three separate pieces(liner fitting, conduit, back panel fitting) isfoamed into place in the conduit provides a pathway from thefreezer liner to the back panel.
7 The majority ofthis SYSTEM is routed above the refrigerator linerto prevent the water tubing from freezing. Thetubing that delivers the water is routed throughthe conduit, and is secured by snapping intoplace at the freezer liner fitting. Back Panel FittingJohnGuestFittingWaterTubeWater Nozzle2-3 Ice StripperThe ice stripper has been modified in order todirect ice into the new ice container. The maindifferences from the current stripper are: anincreased ramp, and a directing wall at the fillcup Level ShutoffThe mechanical shutoff arm on the older icemakers has been replaced with an electronicice level control SYSTEM . This SYSTEM is locatedon either side of the freezer liner and utilizesinfrared light technology to sense the level ofice in the door-mounted ice container. A manualshutoff option is still available on the right sideof the freezer liner.

The ice container is easily removed andreplaced on the door regardless of the ice container is removed by pressing arelease button on the right side and instructions are printed on the changes to the ice container consist ofa vertical rod ice auger, and a clear polycar-bonate upper section. The vertical orientationof the bin helps prevent stale ice areas, be-cause the ice is a first in first out systemwhich helps keep the ice fresher.

The cube/crushselector solenoid and its related linkage havebeen eliminated, and a drive shaft/spring-loaded coupling have been motor is now located on the freezer doorin a foamed-in-place enclosure under the dis-penser bubble area of the inner door motor is mounted to a plastic mountingbracket, which, in turn, is mounted to the en-closure with four mounting motor operates on 115 volts DC (115 voltsAC is delivered to the motor, where it is con-verted within the motor assembly to DC). Thisgives the motor a higher RPM than the earlierdispenser motors, and results in a faster icedelivery rate in both the cubed and ice is delivered by turning the motorin a clockwise direction, and cubed ice is de-livered when the motor turns in a counterclock-wise PlateAuger Coupling IceContainerReleaseButton IceAugerMotor2-5 Drive Shaft / CouplingThe drive shaft / coupling connects the motorto the ice container auger.
