Is this an ice tray? Are you saying the ice maker is the problem?


The tray is the water catcher under the fins in the top back of fridge.

Why would there be ice in it?

Good question. Mine freezes up occasionally too. I turn down the temp in fridge and it helps. also tried adjusting the thermo slide on the fin, still got ice. I keep an eye on it and take it out to dump the ice out when it freezes over.

Ice in it means that the drain line out the back is clogged and the water stays in the tray. The TEMP of the fins is 10 degrees colder than the refer. So, if your refer temp is 36 degrees, the fins are 24 to 26 degrees which is freezing. So, the water does NOT drain and then it freezes. Norcold refers have a "defroster" circuit for the refer, NOT the freezer. That means if the refer is left ON for more than 48 hours, the refer shuts down for a few hours and this allows any Ice/frost on the evap fins to melt and then drain into the catch pan. If left ON this cycle will repeat every 48 to 54 hours. If you do NOT want this cycle to operate, all you have to do is turn the refer Off and then back on once a day. NOW, the usual cause of a Evap drain tube clogged is there is a small plastic check valve on the end of the hose going into the burner mounted drain cup. You just remove the check valve and clean it out and reinstall. Doug
