Re: LG wont dispence ice
sounds like you have ice in the ice bucket. it's most likely that the ice paddle is jammed or broken. check around the ice door and paddle for anything visibly broken as well. you may have to replace the ice paddle.

Pull the machine out and remove the lower back cover. Locate the water valve. With the water turned on and connected remove the 5/16" water line (the bigger one) and then have someone else press the water in the door. If the cylinoid is operating correctly it should spray water out. If it is not operating properly it should at least hum and vibrate. If that does not occur your problem lies elsewhere. As far as the smaller line (1/4") you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve. You can do this by getting a jumper wire, removing the cover of icemaker, which you jsut grab and pull off, and using the jumper wire insert one end of the wire into the cirle marked m and the other in the cicle marked n. Leave there until you hear a click and sometimes see a little spark behind the modular head wheel. Also if you see ice in the maker that hasn't dumper and the teeth of the icemaker are facing any direction other than two o clock position, the icemaker is bad. Also check the fill tube to be sure the no ice is blocking water from coming in.
Fixing the ice cubes tray is quite simple, all you need to do is to hold the ice tray by the edge and gently slide it into the ice tray position. Pull out the drawer and place the ice tray into the freezer.
To make ice cubes, fill the ice tray to the water level and place it in the freezer.
Hope this helped.
All the best
In almost all cases, that problem is due to the dual water valve located at the bottom rear of the machine. It is not repairable and must be replaced.
Assuming the freezer is staying at it's normal temperature, when the ice maker fills, the water valve described above does not shut off completely after a normal fill, causing water to dribble down the fill chute freezing the cubes together.
Very common problem, and changing the valve is not difficult, and most appliance parts houses carry them.
Good day, That should be the water fill valve in the bottom back of the machine. It is not shutting down completely, after performing each cycle. This is due to a diaphragm in the valve having gone bad. The only solution is to replace the complete valve assembly. A fairly easy nuts and bolts job.
Before trying to dispense however, remove the bucket, and dump the ice. Forcing the auger drive motor can cause further damage.
The icemaker only harvests / drops once the icemaker get to a temperature of Approx 15 Degrees.
Most manufactures Icemakers make approx 70 icecubes in a 24 period .
This can depend upon ambeint temp, use of product [opening closing of doors.
You will need to make sure the your condenser coil under the unit is clean.
Before cleaning disconnect power to unit first.
Air flow curculation in freezer can effect production also . too much food can restricting air flow, to little in freezer can effect ice production too .
