My ice maker fills with water. The water freezes completely. The heating element beneath the ice tray gets hot. The Ice cubes never eject. Problem began about a week ago. I have removed the ice maker, thawed it out to remove the cubes. re-installed the ice maker Same results.
It sounds like you are in need of a motor module for your icemaker. This is the motor and gear that drives the icemaker prongs. The part number is W10190935 The price is $77.59 and $6.00 shipping I can have one of these at your door in 1-2 days, so let me know if you need one. We take Visa Mastercard and Discover.

Replace your water valve part # WR57x10032, from what you have listed above you have a bleeding water valve allow water to enter the ice maker mold. The valve is not closing completely. This part show fix this issue for you.
The water and ice maker are two seperate water control valves built onto the same. Your water control valve for the ice maker may be defective and require that you change the set. Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If the ice maker dumps the ice into ice bin and then does not refill then this points to the water control valve. If the ice maker does nothing after water freezes then the problem is the ice maker. Send me a model number and I will look up the part numbers for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze
Is the ice maker itself filling normally, meaning where the cubes are made gets enough water to cover the complete area or just a few slots? If not then check the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker to make sure no ice has formed blocking the water from coming in. Now if ice production in general has slowed, going from every 45 minutes or so to like every 6 hours, then your machine more than likely isn't getting cold enough. The ice maker requires the temperature be at least 10 degrees F or below for it to function properly.
you mean the coil beneath the ice cube maker tray?? yes that gets hot every time the ice maker gets ready to eject the ice. it heats the metal tray a little so it melts a thin layer of ice to allow it to release from the tray easily.. now if it is staying hot all the time then the ice maker head, or if thats not available the entire ice maker can be replaced.. hope this helps, best of luck, ttfn
You have to close the water supply tap from the source a little. This will decrease the volume of water being pumped into the ice maker. If this doen't work then you need to replace the solenoid valve that feed the water to the ice maker.
Each mold tray has a heating element that is turned on to free the ice cubes from the mold tray and allow them to fall into the ice bucket when the tray is rotated into harvest position. Sounds like that is not being turned on... or is defective..
Do you mean the ice cubes are too large to be individual cubes and come out as a lump? The water is filled by a timed fill so if the fill solenoid stays open a little and drips water into the cube tray it will have more water than normal.
I guess I'm not sure if you mean the ice cubes are stuck together in the tray or are they sticking together in the holding bin area?
