Turn the tray upside down and run warm water on the bottom of the tray for a few seconds. It will loosen the ice cube without noticeably melting it. Put your hand under the tray to catch the cube in case it falls out. If it doesn’t fall out, you should be able to easily pop it out. And try not to run out of batteries in the fridge.
@blaineg It is a Fridgidaire, but it is older, as it came with the house. I doubt that the plastic bag was original equipment and if it was it was an extra cost option!
I know at least two people who had bad water damage from the pipes leaking that lead to the ice maker, hence my hesitancy (not to mention the ice cream). I turned off the supply line in the basement for ours. But if you like them, that is fine with me. Virtually every refrigerator I see in homes has one.
1a. i. Open refrigerator and select one of the many batteries properly stored therein.
ii. Utilize said battery for whatever blunt force is necessary to release recalcitrant ice cube.
iii. Deposit ice cube in desired beverage receptacle.
iv. Exercise proper battery storage responsibility and replace multi-function battery in designated refrigerator compartment or area.
v. Congratulate yourself on your MacGyver-like savvy while enjoying your pleasantly chillier beverage.
Ice tray, HA HA HA HA thats funny, these new inventions called refrigerators tend to have Ice makers in them, heck they even sell ice making machines, or if your really in a pinch and live in a state with snow go out side and grab some, just not the yellow, its not lemon flavored, your welcome. Otherwise, when I am in the RV I have aluminium ice trays or I buy bagged ice, don’t microwave the aluminium.
