My refrigerator in-door ice maker jams up with ice. Some ice cubes are connected together. Maybe the freezer bins are overflowing. Does a defective timer at the end of the ice maker cause this?

We have one also. We put the ice in a bag and whack it in the sink to break up -- or simply toss. Make sure that the ice bucket in the door is not dirty, a beam is sent across it to sense ice level and turn the maker on/off. Also clean sensors either side of the door inside with soap and water. make sure it is dry.

Machine has stopped working and is in alarm

Possibly a stuck or defective ice level switch in the ice bin. It's supposed to cease the ice making when the bin gets full and then return the ice making components back on when the ice level drops to a certain level. Should be an easy fix if the switch is bad. The wires have push connectors on them.

I have a Scotsman Cm3 which will not stop making ice. When I come back to work in the moring and open the door, ice falls all over the floor. Is there a way I can fix this?

Is the ice building up into the ice head enough to break the beam on the bin sensor. if so replace the sensors. if ice is not up far enough shut machine off remove plastic grid reach in and down to where bin sensors are and watch to see if light blinks on and off if so they are good. next step check the bin there should be a white ice deflector with 3 thumb screws in the top of it make sure this deflector is mounted so it makes the ice build up high enough to cause ice to reach bin sensor. if the sensor is not seeing ice then it will let the machine keep making ice. If this is all working good then replace the service controller but make sure you look on the back to set the right model program for your machine.

Water keeps overflowing over the ice making coils

Do you mean that it is overflowing the sump tray into the bin? If so there are two things to check. First make sure the unit is level. Second their is a simple water float valve much like an old toilet float that keeps the sump full. Turn the machine off and make sure that the float will stop the water flow 100% when the sump water level is just over the bottom of the water pump impeller. If the float will not stop the water flow either the water pressure is too high or the float valve is bad and has to be replaced. In general water pressure should be between 20-40 psi.

Ice maker is overflowing

Older icemakers have a bar that drops from above your ice bin; once the bin is full the bar is raised and trips turning the ice maker off so that it won't dump. If your's is this style, try manually pushing the free end of the bar upward so that it locks in the upward position. Newer ice makers with the ice bin in the door have a small panel that moves to the open position when the door opens and closes when the door closes. Mine also includes an optical sensor that is visible when this panel is in the closed position. Try placing a non-clear tape over the optical sensor (don't know if that will work or not but worth a shot). If effective in stopping the ice flow then call a repairman. If none of this works, turn off the water supply coming out of the wall to your freezer.

The automatic ice machine does not make ice. the water dispensor works.

check if the icemaker is switched on.And place the ice bin correctly.If it is not placed properly it will not function.Check the ice cube level arm(microswitch) or the ice sensor(in some models to detect the ice cubel level) not blocked.Check the user manual if is there any self test mode of the icemaker.

AMANA ARB2257C ice maker makes noise/doesn't eject cubes into bin

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

GE Monogram Ice Maker makes ice, unit doesn't cool enough

This model Icemaker makes ice by flowing water across a freeze plate. It is located in the top of the unit behind the white cover directly below the ON/OFF/CLEAN switches. After freezing a sheet of ice it releases and slides to the cutting grid. It then drops into the ice bin and begins to melt and the whole process starts over again. The level of ice in the bin is controlled by the high level sensor on the right side of the ice bin. It is a whit tube with two wires coming out of the top. Without this sensor it can overrun the bin capacity. Bottom line this unit does not freeze ice, it only holds it like cooler does.

Free standing 25lbs ice machine

It sounds as though the bin therrmisotr is defectice, which as you stated the unit is not sensing the temperature and just continues making ice.

The second issue would appeare to be a drain issue, it should be a gravity drain into either an open drain or a sealed pump.
