Well, yeah, I do that. Then I have more stuff to look through when I check for the good stuff that sometimes accidentally goes to the spam folder.

Besides, it shouldn't be my job to deal with it. There are standards on the internet about this sort of thing. I think verifying email addresses was one of the things mandated in the US anti-spam legislation.

They don't have an unsubscribe link down at the bottom? Sometimes they hide them in tiny print or light colors you can barely see. I've never had to use a password when I use the unsubscribe feature. There is a doctor that keeps using my e-mail addy to sign up for continuing education, job offerings, etc. It stopped for a while after I did some sleuthing and process of elimination based on the types of e-mails I was getting and blast (literally and figuratively) e-mailed 3 docs about using other people's e-mails, but I've noticed it's starting to creep back again occasionally.

Oh, just remembered, I did have 1 I couldn't get unsubscribed from. I looked up the company, got the VP of something'd addy and e-mailed him. Told him I wasn't the one that signed up for his company's e-mail and that I was going to report his company as a spammer to my ISP if he didn't get me removed PROMPTLY. Got a reply back from him that he would see it was taken care of and they stopped. So, you might try that if there's no unsubscribe.

What is the cost of repairing the drawer? Perhaps you should go with that and just turn off the tap to the ice maker. I had one in a new fridge but we finally disconnected it. The water supply was yechy, not so much for the ice maker but for the water spout tap thingy in the door. The filter had to be constantly changed it. Made the water smell bad and I was afraid it would affect the ice as well. Never missed it. Just filled our trays the old fashioned way.

So you perhaps have a choice, repair costs and no ice maker. Or cost of shopping and chance of needing reno's to the cupboard again. Just sayin'
I'd agree with the above, Dawg. That's a fairly new, very expensive fridge!

When we got our new fridge, we disconnected and removed the ice maker for several reasons. We found the perfect solution for producing all the ice we could ever want, with a portable ice maker we keep in the garage. We use bottled water for it, and fill an ice container in the freezer drawer for easy access. Check them out..

Petty Vents

Thanks guys. The repair people are supposed to call me Monday. I'll see what it costs to reattach the freezer door. They're out of town, and I'm cheap, so if repairs are more than $500, I may dump the Maytag. We've never liked it that much anyway, it spits ice cubes on the floor (thankfully Beagle's water dish is nearby), and I find the bottom freezer drawer to be a pain.

A separate icemaker is a good idea, Kay. I usually don't have room in the freezer for trays, and I use the filtered water for the coffee maker.

I know you'd be very happy with a portable ice machine Dawg, no matter what you decide to do. I love that I have more room for food in my freezer, rather than a machine, and more ice than I need stored there.
Here's my ice container I use, that I fill from the portable machine.

Ice maker removal

To remove the ice maker completely. remove the 2 screws holding to the side of the freezer, then unplug it. When we got our new refrigerator, I asked the installer to remove the ice maker. He told me he could not because it was wired in. BS!

Knock on wood, we've never had issues with any automatic ice maker; we've had three different refrigerators with them over the decades. This last one, in the LG, doesn't interact with the freezer drawer at all. Instead, it has a small unit installed in one of the refrigerator doors, where the dispenser for water/ice is located. All I lost was a bit of depth space to the in-door bins. Still, they're big enough to accommodate jelly jars and such. That ice maker set-up is a big reason why we bought the LG...which ended up with its own set of issues. *sigh*

*******************************

I'd been battling a persistent headache the last few days. Nothing serious, just an annoyance. Still, never felt like doing anything or even playing in my online playgrounds. Thankfully, today has been headache free from the start. I think it's been too much excitement with the playoff baseball games.

Glad you're feeling better, CG. I had an almost constant headache a couple weeks ago when I had that cold. I know how miserable it is. Makes it hard to do anything. Take care.

Why do people think they will be masterchefs with out knowing the basic??
I been trying to help some one learn how to cook, well the person doesnt want to know the basic but just jump into hard things, things that even I after 37 years of cooking have problem with and my friend the chef says is not for beginners.
And now the person is going around saying I am bad teacher.. *sigh* I honestly want to give up..

Oh well nothing a little whisky and dark chocolate cant cure... or should I go for the German plum brandy?

Your experience reminds me of my grandson. He expects that when he does something the first time it will be perfect and just as he envisioned it. I keep trying to get him to accept that you have to learn the method then PRACTICE. But he's not quite ten years old yet so he will learn. There's no excuse for adults. Many people don't want to put in the work to develop a skill.
