Bosch Informative - Hard to remove ice maker bin
I have found numerous reports of it being extremely hard to pull directly out the ice maker bin. You pull so hard that it almost pulls the machine forward that is the entire refrigator.
I found that after getting it out for the first time you should alter the ice bin by filing 2 very small tabs on the top rail of the bin. These 2 tabs are 3 3/4 of an inch from the back of the end of top rail and are in size to match -- these 2 dashes. This stops the tabs from catching as they are supposed to do on upper tabs, that is the cavity that the ice bin slides into. . The tabs are white and the upper catch which is not attached to the bin are white as well. Only file off the -- tabs on the bin!!!
Life is so simple now in order to clean or clear frozen ice cubes that form a blockage. Don't worry about the ice bin falling out as it sits firmly in place after those tabs are removed.
Why do people with no experience in design flaws have to solve or alter the Bosch machine it should be up to BOSCH!
