check that the ice maker is not jammed with frozen ice
dont force the tines on the tray to turn . lightly geared clock.
can you hear the little clock motor running quietly wirrs
is the water running out the front ok
is the water frozen before the tray ,defroster issue then
hit it with a hair dryier for a few mins an see what it does when u close it .
Is water getting into ice tray? If not, check the water line feeding unit. If that is ok then check the solenoid that controls water flow into tray.
If water is frozen in tray then anomaly is caused by the mechanics of ice maker. If the ice melt mechanism does work the ice will stay stuck in there. Caused by broken heater element in ice maker or a defective thermostat in ice maker that turns the heater element on. Or it could be a defective motor in the cam that sets up the sequence of events.
Easiest fix is to just replace entire unit from ebay for about 40 bucks.
Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If the ice maker dumps the frozen cubes , but doesn't refill with water , you should replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , where the wall water line connects to . If the Ice maker does not eject the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker .
Also , check the ice maker fill tube , from the back wall inside the freezer , to the ice maker fill cup , to see if it's frozen . If so , you will need to remove it , and clean the ice out . This would be caused by a " seeping " bad water valve also .
Check the coils under the refrig , to make sure they are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp above 5 degrees , which is the temperature which the ice maker needs to operate properly .
Check to make sure your line to the maker is not frozen. See if there is a little black rubber hose hanging/leading to the maker device. It will usually be about an inch long or so. Try bending/flexing it. If it's rigid, then more than likely the line is frozen. Just take out the good old blowdrying and blow on high heat for a few minutes until you see water slowing dripping out of the tube. Eventually, you should see a frozen ice core sliding out of the tube. Then, wait for a couple hours and check if there any new ice.
Use a hair blow dryer to warm up the frozen cubes and get them out of there. Then while the ice cube forming tray is empty dry it off and spray it with PAM cooking spray or another cooking spray similar to it.
Hello, Check the water fill tube to see if it may be frozen. It's a tube about 3/8" wide that hangs over the tray. Squeeze the tube and if it is hard, it"s frozen, if it is soft, you have another problem. If it's hard, take a hair dryer and thaw out the tube and you ice maker should be fixed. I hope this helps.

Clear the Ice tray by pressing the button under the ice maker. The problem is that the ice is in the first couple of slots is not dumping and the tray tries to fill again and over flows. I pressed the button and cleared the tray of ice (This will tilt the tray and twist it to empty it) that was re-frozen several times without dumping. My ice maker works perfectly after I did the above. I think the problem arises if the door did not close completely. I stopped hanging the dish cloth on the door and on my LG Dish wisher. I hope this helps
Hello. Yes, that is the correct position for the icemaker feeler arm. The updated icemaker has a longer feeler arm that hangs down a little more (thereby shutting off sooner when the ice piles up not so high).
Your water leak onto your food is from water spilling out of the front left corner of the ice tray during fill. This has also been updated with a plastic lip that keeps the water from sloshing out when filling up.
The photo shows that your ice tray appears to be unlevel and drooping in the front left corner. This happens with flex tray icemakers over time. The icetray does not fully flex back to its level posiiton. I do not feel you need to replace the entire icemaker. Repalcing just the ice tray should fix your issue.
I also have this problem. The ice that was hanging, when looking in the freezer was the right side ice. I just releveled the frig or increased the height of the side that was hanging causing the water to level. It has cut down on the amount of ice or times the ice hangs.
