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= 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.
