    What about taking out ice on shabbos from an automatic ice maker? It refills itself when it senses that there isn’t enough ice?

    What exactly is the tzorech to have ice? Can’t drink coke without ice? Need ice in the vodka?

    tzorech as in you don’t have any whereas non tzorech means you have already but there is cheshash that you may need more for shabbos (for a simcha) ect.

    tzorech= if you have a guest and don’t have any cold drink
    if any member of your family cannot drink warm water
    you might be VERY chassidishe but don’t be frum (BEHIDUR) on somebody else

    Rabbi Greenglass O”H, whom the Rebbe gave instructions to write a KITZUR HILCHOS DINIM, told me personally that it is permitted 100% to make ice cubes on Shabbos.
