I experienced a similar problem, nothing was taking the colour off - magic eraser, soft scrub, wd40. But nail polish remover (with acetone) did the trick! There's a faint colour spot still but only to me because I know it's there.

Your model has a harvest timer. After a set freeze time, the timer should operate a hot gas reversing valve that will slightly warm the freeze surface and cause the cubes to eject by gravity. The timer or coil on the hot gas valve can fail. The harvest cycle will also drain water that wasn't used in the last cycle and refill. It seems like waste but this ...

For anyone else who may have a similar problem and stumble upon this discussion. The problem that happened here also happened to me. The door on the refrigerator cabinet worked itself out of alignment over the years to the point that it had a tendency to open slightly over time. Pretty soon, the refrigerator compartment wasn't cooling off sufficiently ...
