Hi: First off make sure the fridge is level. Is It too high in front? Making the rear of the icemaker overflow and jam? Also make sure the freezer section is a zero degrees, not just frozen. Ice cream should be rock hard. I hope this helps you avoid calling service. Thank You, Jeff

SOURCE: ice maker does not make much ice
Hi and welcome to FixYa. When an icemaker still makes ice but in a reduced capacity it is usually the result of other problems.
Either there is ice build up on the evaproator coils due a defrosting problem that you do not see or the evaporator fan motor is not running fast enough.
Here is a way to find out. Unplug the unit and use a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for at least 2 hours. This is a manual external defrosting that will rid the evaproator coils of any ice build up.
Plug the unit back in. Over the next 30 hours check to see if your ice made result is much more than before the manual defrost.
If this improves your ice made result then you probably have a defrosting problem with your unit.
You did not say if the cubes were smaller or not so I have to assume the cubes currently are normal in size and that water flow and ice maker fill timing are fine.
