Ŷ Beverages and foods should not be quick-chilled in the

Ŷ To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass, put
the glass close to, but not touching, the dispenser
opening.
Ŷ Some crushed ice may be dispensed even though you
selected CUBED ICE. This happens occasionally when
a few cubes accidentally get directed to the crusher.
Ŷ After crushed ice is dispensed, some water may drip
from the chute.
Ŷ Sometimes a small mound of snow will form on the
door in the ice chute. This condition is normal and
usually occurs when you have dispensed crushed ice
repeatedly. The snow will eventually evaporate.
