Title
(EN) ICE-MAKING ASSEMBLY AND REFRIGERATOR USING THE SAME
(FR) ENSEMBLE GÉNÉRATEUR DE GLACE ET RÉFRIGÉRATEUR UTILISANT CELUI-CI
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to an ice-making assembly for a refrigerator and a refrigerator including the same. According to the present invention, a freezing chamber door is provided with an ice-making assembly, and ice made by the ice-making assembly can be immediately drawn out to the outside by opening an exclusively used home-bar door. In addition, an ice-making case is coupled by a coupling means formed integrally with the freezing chamber door and the ice-making case without a coupling tool or operation. Moreover, according to the present invention, if a water bucket is installed to the ice-making case, a water supply hole of the lower end of the water bucket is opened by an opening and closing means, so that water in water bucket is automatically supplied to an ice tray. In addition, an ice-separating lever having a '⊂ ' shape is provided to simultaneously rotating a plurality of ice trays. Meanwhile, in the present invention, an ice bank cooperates with the home-bar door to be drawn out forward as the home-bar door is opened. According to the present invention, the use convenience of a refrigerator is improved.

La présente invention porte sur un ensemble générateur de glace d'un réfrigérateur et sur un réfrigérateur comprenant cet ensemble. Selon cette invention, une porte de chambre de congélation est pourvue d'un ensemble générateur de glace, et la glace générée par cet ensemble peut être immédiatement sortie lorsqu'on ouvre la porte du mini-bar utilisée exclusivement à cet effet. De plus, un casier générateur de glace est couplé par un moyen de couplage faisant partie intégrante de la porte de la chambre de congélation et du casier, et cela sans instrument de couplage ou opération correspondante. En outre, selon cette invention, si un réservoir d'eau est installé dans le casier générateur de glace, un trou d'amenée de l'eau situé dans l'extrémité inférieure du réservoir s'ouvre au moyen d'un dispositif d'ouverture et de fermeture de sorte que l'eau du réservoir soit automatiquement envoyée vers un bac à glace. De plus, un levier de séparation de la glace ayant une forme en '⊂ ' est conçu de façon à faire tourner simultanément plusieurs bacs à glace. En même temps, un bac à accumulation de glace coopère avec la porte du mini-bar de façon à être sorti vers l'avant lorsqu'on ouvre ladite porte. Cette invention permet ainsi d'améliorer la commodité d'utilisation d'un réfrigérateur.
