  • Publication number: 20060131324
    Abstract: A refrigerator including a dispenser casing on which an ice discharge opening is formed and an opening/closing member placed in the dispenser casing for opening/closing the ice discharge opening. The dispenser also includes a lever member connected with the opening/closing member for making the opening/closing member rotate toward an open position; a damper member operated by the opening/closing member for controlling the closing speed of the opening/closing member when the opening/closing member rotates toward a close position; and a lever return member disposed between the dispenser casing and the lever member, the lever return member returning the lever member to an initial position independent of the closing speed of the opening/closing member. Thus, the return speeds of the opening/closing member and the lever member operate independent of each other.

  • Patent number: 6003734
    Abstract: A refrigerator has a cold water storage vessel mounted on an interior side of a door of the refrigerator. The vessel has a valve for opening and closing a water outlet thereof. A manually actuable lever mounted on the door is actuable by a user to discharge water. By actuating the lever, a magnetic force causes the valve to open. The magnetic force can be imposed by a first permanent magnet which is caused to approach a second permanent magnet disposed on the valve to repel the second magnet and thereby open the valve. Alternatively, a permanent magnet disposed on the valve can be repelled by a magnetic force of a stationary electromagnet which is energized by actuation of the lever.
