【0030】〔実施例 9〕また、図11は、本発明のさらに他の実施例に係る自動製氷機付き冷蔵庫の製氷皿の断面図である。 Further EXAMPLE 9, FIG. 11 is a cross-sectional view of the ice tray with automatic ice maker refrigerator according to still another embodiment of the present invention. 図中、図10と同一符号のものは先の実施例と同等部であるから、その説明を省略する。 In the figure, since 10 of the same reference numerals as those are the previous embodiment the same portions, and description thereof is omitted. 本実施例も図10の例と同様、水受けの幅が広いときのヒレ形状に関するものである。 This embodiment is also similar to the example of FIG. 10 relates to the fin shape when the width of the receiving water is wide. 図11に示す製氷皿11Bでは、製氷皿11Bの外周に沿う上方に延びる水飛び防止板10A´のヒレ22A´を垂直線に対し鈍角に、水受け21の間に直立して設けた水飛び防止板10Bのヒレ22BをT字形に形成している。 In ice tray 11B shown in FIG. 11, the fin 22A' water skip preventing plate 10A' extends upwardly along the outer periphery of the ice tray 11B at an obtuse angle relative to the vertical line, splashing provided upright between the water receiving 21 the fins 22B of the baffle plate 10B is formed into a T-shape.

【0031】このようにヒレを垂直線にたいして鈍角にするのは、互いに向いあう水飛び防止板のヒレの間隔を大きくして、離氷時に氷がヒレにひっかかること無く貯氷箱13に落ちるようにできる効果かある。 [0031] is to an obtuse angle relative to this way fin a vertical line, by increasing the distance between the fins of prevention plate water splashing each other facing each other, as ice at the time of the ice removal fall in ice storage box 13 without caught in fin there you can effect. また、これまでの実施例において、水飛び防止板10a(10A) Further, in the previous Examples, the water-skipping prevention plate 10a (10A)
は水飛び防止板10b(10B)よりも高さをを低くしているが、これも互いに対向する水飛び防止板10a、 Preventing plate 10a is being lowered height than the water skip preventing plate 10b (10B), which also splashing facing each other,
10bの間隔を大きく取るようにして、離氷時の氷の落下を容易にするためである。 So as to obtain a large 10b intervals, in order to facilitate the dropping of the ice during an ice removal.

【0032】〔実施例 10〕また、図12は、本発明のさらに他の実施例に係る自動製氷機付き冷蔵庫の製氷皿の断面図である。 Further Example 10, Figure 12 is a cross-sectional view of the ice tray with automatic ice maker refrigerator according to still another embodiment of the present invention. 図中、図11と同一符号のものは先の実施例と同等部である。 In the figure, 11 and of the same code is the previous embodiment the same portion. 図12に示す製氷皿11C Ice tray 11C shown in FIG. 12
は、水受け21の間の水飛び防止板を無くしたものである。 Is to eliminate the water skip preventing plate between the water receiving 21. 図8に示した実施例のように、製氷室8B内にダクトを設けるときには、このダクトが製氷皿11内の水の製氷室外への飛散を防止する効果を有するので、水飛び防止板10b(10B)は図12に示すように無くとも良い。 As in the embodiment shown in FIG. 8, when providing a duct in the ice making chamber 8B, since the duct has the effect of preventing the scattering of the ice making outdoor water in the ice tray 11, the water skip preventing plate 10b ( 10B) it may even not shown in FIG. 12.

【0033】〔実施例 11〕図13は、製氷皿の回転中心を説明する製氷皿の断面図である。 [0033] Example 11 FIG. 13 is a cross-sectional view of the ice tray to explain the rotational center of the ice tray. 図中、図3と同一符号のものは先の実施例と同等部であるから、その説明を省略する。 In the figure, since Fig. 3 and of the same code is the previous embodiment the same portions, and description thereof is omitted. 図13において、36は、製氷終了後の離氷時の製氷皿11の回転中心を示している。 13, 36 indicates the center of rotation of the ice tray 11 when ice removing after ice completion. 従来の製氷皿には水飛び防止板は取り付けられていなかったが、 The conventional ice tray but water-skipping prevention plate was not attached,
水飛び防止板10a,10bを取り付けた製氷皿11では、水飛び防止板10a,10bの部分が製氷皿11の上部にとびだし、従来の製氷皿の回転中心37では製氷皿の回転半径が大きくなる。 Water skip preventing plate 10a, the ice tray 11 fitted with 10b, water-skipping prevention plate 10a, the portion of 10b jumped to the top of the ice tray 11, the rotation radius increases the rotational center 37 in the ice tray of the conventional ice tray . この回転半径を小さくして製氷機をできるだけ小形化するためには、製氷皿11の回転中心の決定には水飛び防止板10a,10bを考慮する必要がある。 In order for this rotation radius smaller as much as possible miniaturized ice maker, the determination of the rotational center of the ice tray 11 it is necessary to consider water skipping prevention plates 10a, a 10b. すなわち、水飛び防止板を取り付けたときの製氷皿回転中心36は、製氷皿11の水受け21 That is, the ice tray rotation center 36 when fitted with a water-skipping prevention plate receives water ice tray 11 21
の外端および水飛び防止板の先端を最小の半径の円弧内に含まれるような円弧の中心にすると良い。 The good the distal end of the outer end and the water skip preventing plate to the center of the arc, as contained in the minimum radius of the arc.

【0034】なお、図示しないが、製氷室の冷気取り入れ口部にファンを取り付けることにより、製氷室内への冷気の取り込みを向上させて製氷時間を短縮させることが可能である。 [0034] Although not shown, by mounting the fan to the cold air inlet portion of the ice making chamber, it is possible to shorten the ice making time to improve the cold air incorporation to the ice compartment. また、貯氷箱が冷凍室扉に取り付けられているので、冷凍室扉の貯氷箱部に小扉を取り付けることにより、冷凍室の扉を開けること無く氷の取り出しが可能となる。 Further, since the ice storage box is attached to the freezer compartment door, by mounting the small door ice box portion of the freezing chamber door, it is possible to take out the without the ice to open the door of the freezer compartment.
