Re: Galaxy 24.5 side by side Ice maker problem
This is Going to take some study on my part. I have never seen a Galaxy Fridge. In the mean time, Try taking the entire Ice maker out of the Freezer and study it closely to see where the Plug might fit. This is basically what I would be doing. I will be back if I can find a definate answer for you.

The ice maker has a pin plug in the back of most model
refrigerators. Disconnect there if nothing works to turn it off. What is the
model number of your refrigerator? Does the ice maker have a shut off arm that
turns the ice maker off, switch or does your model refrigerator have an
electronic eye that turns the ice maker off? Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze
Sounds like you have a bad water valve. It will have a dual water valve on the back where the water connects to the unit. You can take the wire plugs and swap them around. Then push the water in the door leaver. hold it for around 4 sec. Then see if the ice tray has water in it. If it does, you have a bad valve. If not you ice make is bad, turned off or the freezer is not cold enough to operate. ( It has to be 5degrees or lower before the ice maker will try to operate)
Please rate this solution if it helps. Thanks
When the ice maker calls for water it'll be filling for about 7 seconds if is more the ice maker inside control board is bad , but if there's water in the ice maker all the timeeven after or before it calls for water it means that the water valve (solenoid) that supplies water to the ice maker is leaking and you have to replace it.
This should fill up automatically. It takes 24 hours to have that basket full of ice cubes it might take longer depends on conditions. The arm inside is what controls the ice maker, make sure it's facing downward. Give it a change. You can take out the basket also to inspect problems. If you don't see what you any ice cubes in 24 hours then have that service. Or you can do it yourself if you want.
check the temp inside the frezeer it should be 0 degrees at all times if is higher then that then lower temps and clean condenser coils . if it is zero then repl entire ice maker the thermostat inside ice maker is not closing when it should and in return takes longer to cycle ice.
Take the ice container out of the freezer, there is a metal rod that sticks out behind the ice container, You should be able to move this up and down to open a flap inside front of container to allow whole cubes to get through. In rear of freezer there is a hole that this rod sticks into. You will see a plastic square shaped actuator hanging down. It sould be completely down, and you should be able to move it up and down easily with your finger. If not then it is either frozen or it has failed. If it seems to be hanging about half way down, take a hair dryer and warm it enough that you can move it up and down. Once it is all the way down, reinstall ice container and try for cubed ice again.
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.
