Change the ice maker. The contacts are burnt on it causing the overflow. One day they will fry together and flood the kitchen.

Frigidaire side by side with ice maker .. ice maker jams and quits making ice


Hi,
Hollow ice cubes are a result of lack of water to ice maker. This can be caused by lack of water pressure (clogged filter, bad water valve, obstructed fill tube, etc..) you will need to find the cause to correct this hollow ice cube issue. The ice maker should take on 5.5 oz of water when it cycles (2/3 cup). Mot of the time its a water supply issue and the line could be kinked behind the unit as it was rolled back into place.

Good Luck

Ice is dumped before totally frozen.


Sounds like a water valve problem. The hollow ice cubes are the giveaway. This means not enough water. only things it can be is the ice maker is not turning on the water valve long enough or the water valve is restricted or the water valve has been leaking and has frozen the fill tube. and is only leting out a small amount of water in this case as well you will still need a new water valve.

start with water valve and if that does not solve the problem you will need to replace the ice maker.

Ice maker is not dumping solid ice. Half moons are still unfrozen in the middle


You need to replace the water inlet valve behind the refrig where the wall water line connects to on the refrig . This is caused by not enough water going into icemaker . Called " hollow cubes " condition .

Hollow ice cubes. Ocassional clunk sound and


Hollow cubes indicate the water inlet valve is defective ( not letting enough water into the ice maker ) . Replace the valve behind the refrig ( the piece the wall water lne connects to on the refrig ) . Do not try adjusting the water on the ice maker itself , even if someone else suggests it , as this adjustment is factory preset .

Icemake rarely dumps ice and when it does they are small cubes


There has to be a restriction in the water supply line from your saddle valve, ( shut off valve on the cold water line ) to the water valve. It can be in the category of, the hole in the water supply line is getting calcium build up or to small of piercing, or it can be a kink in the water line, or even the white fill tube at the icemaker is closing up with ice. 99% sure you will find the problem in one of those areas.

Ice maker overfilling


When your ice maker rolls around in the harvest mode, near the end it comes into contact with a copper plate mounted on the inside of the main drive wheel so that the water valve can fill the ice mold for 7.5 secs. This tiny piece of copper gets all burnt to hell from the arcing and can cause everythang from overfill to no fill.Remove the main drive gear and clean that copper. Or just bust a move and buy another IM.

Water in ice cubes


Hollow ice is usually caused by low water pressure. There is a mesh strainer in the water inlet valve where the water supply is connected. Make sure it's clean and that you have enough pressure. The pressure at the water dispenser may give you an indication of the pressure.

Ice maker quit making ice


your refrig has a built in bypass in the filter housing so yes it will work with out a filter in place. if you have not replaced your filter in the last 6 months that is likely the problem. Hollow cubes are usually a sign of not enough water getting into the icemaker then it cycles too fast and harvests hollow cubes.

when the hollow cubes fall into your bucket they bust and put water in with your cubes freezing them together. so by solving your water supply problem you'll solve most of your icemaking issues..
