Remove the lower screw on the ice maker and lift it up to remove. Then unplug the unit form the wall. Here is the new ice maker if you need to order it.

Be sure that the fill tube is getting into the ice maker and that the ice maker is not blocked with ice.  If everything seems ok, you may have a leaking water valve which causes it to constantly drip water into the ice maker causing the block of ice.

SOURCE: LG Refrigerator - I need to remove the ice disp.

The dispenser cover snaps off. Look at the bottom corners of the dispenser faceplate and you may see small slots to put a small flat bladed screwdriver inside to help pry the faceplate off. This faceplate snaps on very tightly so it may seem like there are screws holding it in place, but it only snaps in.

Once you have the faceplate off the rest will be easy as you can see what you are doing and what you have to remove.

Note, if you are replacing the funnel you need to know that this part has been updated as of OCT 2005 (stronger clips to hold it in place) and it will not snap into the older funnel frame (the part it attaches to).

If the serial number for your model starts with 510KR or lower, then you will also need the updated funnel frame part number 3210JA0006S.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

I was able to order the ice tray myself and install it in the fridge - it's not hard. I ordered from one of the parts sellers linked to at the LG website, not those listed in other posts here.

Here's how to replace the tray:

You need to remove the tray dumping mechanism to do this.

  1. Remove the ice bin, set it aside (don't forget to deal with the ice melt).
  2. Turn the ice maker off (LG says to unplug the fridge, I didn't).
  3. On the left hand side of the ice tray dumping mechanism there is a screw helping to keep the entire thing suspended from the ceiling of the freezer. Remove that screw- don't worry, the mechanism will stay put for now.
  4. The dumping mechanism can now slide forward- note that you can't completely remove it from the freezer yet, but slide it forward and it will no longer be suspended from the ceiling. Don't let it drop or hang.
  5. You need to disconnect its power supply now. On the left hand side you should see a small bundle of wires coming from the back of the freezer to the dumping mechanism. It connects to the dumping mechanism's set of wires with a pair of white plugs. Pull these plugs apart. You may need to pry the catch on these plugs apart while you pull.
  6. Now you can take the dumping mechanism out of the freezer (and close your freezer).
  7. To remove the ice tray you need to slide the housing that contains the rotating motor out of the housing. This is on the right side of the mechanism. If you have trouble identifying it look at the underside of the entire thing and you'll see a small "test" button. That button is on the motor.
  8. To remove the motor you'll see two catches on the right side- you'll need to pull these catches out without breaking anything. You'll be able to slide the motor down and out when you get it right.
  9. Sliding the motor out lets you get the old ice tray out now. There is probably a set of white wires routed through a little catch on the old ice tray that you'll need to free.
  10. Put the new ice tray back on the motor. You'll need to get the left side secured at the same time you get the motor housing in its catches of the dumping mechanism.
  11. Reroute those white wires back on the new ice tray.
  12. Reconnect the electric wires to the housing.
  13. Slide the entire dumping housing back onto the ceiling of the freezer and screw in on the left side.
That's it. You can press that test button on the underside of the motor. This will dump the tray and immediately refill it with water so you can observe if everything is working.

How can I lower water pressure on my lg refrigerator ice maker


If water is splashing out it is not the pressure if the ice maker is the twist tray type. The tray is distorted and needs to be fixed. remove the icemaker 1 screw and one connector, very carefully remove the sensor on the bottom of the tray, remove the tray and place it in hot water, so that you can twist the left front up a bit about 1/4 inch then put in cold water to retain the bend. Try a cycle this should cure the splashing out. issue.

Super easy fix. Pull out the Ice Maker. Two screws at the top, one ground screw at the bottom. remove plug. Once Ice Maker is out remove the white cover. Again two screws. Check to see if there is ice blocking the control arm. That has been the problem on most of these. Remove Ice, reinstall and enjoy the ice.

My lfx25950 is not making ice


Most likely your water control valve is defective on the side for the ice maker. There are times that there is a slow leak and water freezes in the fill tube that fills the ice maker. That can be fixed by defrosting the fill tube with a hair dryer until the water valve is replaced. The next like ly problem would be a defective ice maker and sometimes there are problems getting parts for the LG brand. Do this, fill the ice maker with tap water turn on and let freeze. If it drops the ice the ne dual water control valve needs replaced. If it does nothing then the ice maker is the problem. I will be back soon with part numbers and where to find the parts you need. Try the test and if I am helpful please rate my solution, Thanks, Sea breeze
