Remember: You should change the water filter at least once a year. If the filter is old and clogged it will cause water pressure and ice maker problems too. 🙂
If your water pressure seems low, or the ice maker is making hollow cubes, check this first:
The best way to check is pull out the refrig. turn off your water supply to the refrig. Take of the water line going to the refrig. water valve.
Get something to catch water in, like a small bucket or container, put the water line in that, then turn the water on.
If you get a good stream and good water pressure then its in the refrig. water valve or ice maker.
Lots of times i see low water pressure because people install those self piercing needle valves to the cold water line under the sink. Those clog up alot, because the hole that supplies water is so small.
Have a Good Day!

Appliances should last 10-20 years, but they do break now and then. Thats where we can help. Here at The Appliance Blog
Some people like Gas Ranges others Electric. I have owned both, and i enjoy both types. I dont have a favorite.
I do get alot of customers that have questions about the Broiling system.
Since the Broil has to stay on all the time when you Broil, the oven door should remain ajar, so the heat can escape, and keeps the thermostat from turning the broiler off.
Thats it for now.
Have a Good Evening!

2004 Kenmore Window Air Conditioner: bad oder coming out when unit is first turned on. Very Rare to see this happen! Smelled like a wet dog.
They did have a dog. 🙂 But other homes have Dogs and there is no problem with dog smell. The house did smell very odd. Like they over-fraganced it. I wouldnt say there was anything wrong with the A/C it was cooling good. Just told them to try vanilla extract to get rid of smell.
