      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Ice maker

Recommended Posts

The ice maker in our freezer quite making ice the other day. There is a infered sensor the shuts it off you open the door or the ice bucket is full which I suspect isnt working. There is a red light below the infered sensor that blinks all the time. Is that light supose to blink when the sensor is working or not?

I.m guessing you have either a Whirlpool or KitcheAide Ref. with the laser optics. Usually it's not the optics that go bad. It usually 1 of 2 things:

1. Black supply tube for ice maker in freezer freezes up, usually because filter needs to be changed and water flow is too slow.

2. The ice maker itself goes bad.

I would start by checking that supply tube and seeing if it is frozen, if so, unfreeze with hair dryer is the easiest way to do it. If that's not the case, probably has bad ice maker.

Yes it is a Whirlpool. I think it gets water because the little trays where it makes ice are full and frozen.. I just wont eject them into the container on the door.

I have had the same issue with my freezer/fridge. The water filter in the refridge frezzes up. Then the ice maker cannot get water. I had a bad board for the unit and they had to put a new one in the fridge. One can raise the temp in the fridge to a bit warmer so the water flows to the ice maker.

Put a thermometer if the fridge and see what the temp is by the water filter and also each self.

I found some more diagnostic info on the web and according to that both the infered sensor and the ice maker are bad. I have a hard time beliving both went bad at the same time. The sensor is $65 and the ice maker is $85. Not sure what im going to do with it. Might just buy a new one and be done with it!

I would just get the I/M. I've repaired lots of those units and it's usually just the I/M. When you replace I/M, unplug the fridge for a couple minutes and the optics boards will reset, they are just little computer boards. I'd be very surprised if both things were wrong.
