Whirlpool refrigerator question

We just purchased a Whirlpool refrigerator, bottom freezer with ice dispenser in the refrigerator door. We too are getting little bits of styrofoam in our ice. I see a repair idea when the ice maker is in the freezer. Amy suggestions when the ice maker is in the fridge? Also we are still in our original 30 day warranty, should I call store instead of trying to fix ourselves? Thx

I would be surprised if anybody said to fix yourself being under warranty, have you tried flushing large amounts of water to clear?

This is a common problem. More than likely the styrofoam ductwork has either become damaged or was damaged in manufacturing. You may have to push for a new fridge as other members did not have much luck trying to stop the flying styrofoam bits.

Either way..... call for service now.

Styrofoam

Thank you all for your answers. After multiple ice dispenses, we seem to have gotten rid of the bits.

You are lucky. Others were not as lucky.
One good thing.... the styrofoam is inert. I seriously doubt a few specs of it are harmful.
