This sounds like a thermostat in the ice maker has failed. Unfortunately, LG provides no replacement parts for the ice maker. They say to just replace the assembly, so there is no alternative other than ice maker replacement. Here is the ice maker to order.

SOURCE: Ice tray sometimes stuck when dumping off ice

Your icemaker tray has an update for the water flowing over the tray.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to get it replaced.  Also, the tray is twisted because it binds itself against the hinge pin on the left side.  To stop this, spray some cooking spray oil in the left hinge pin and it should unbind itself and return to normal.

If you look underneath the icemaker module, you should see a reset or test button. Press it once and it should do a complete cycle. Once activated, the icemake normally continues on from there. If no action takes place when you have pressed the test button then replace the module.(a little complex to repair at component level as there are many variables ie. sensors: drive motors:limit forward and back etc.).

SOURCE: Ice tray sometimes stuck when dumping off ice

I am an attorney near Philadelphia who is considering initiating a class action against LG related to the defective design of their ice maker. I have clients in different states who have had problems that LG fixed, but the problems re-occurred after the warranty expired. I've been advised by mechanics that leaks are inevitable based on the design. Apparently this is a design that LG had used years ago but had discontinued for a while because of leak problems. I'm usually on the defense side of product liability cases, but this seems to be a common defect. If you are interesed in such a suit, feel free to contact me at corrlaw@verizon.net. Law Office of John A. Corr, (610) 482-4237.

SOURCE: Ice Maker Dumping Water into Collection Tray.

Not to plug any company but... if you get Sears to fix it ask them for a Master Protection Agreement on it, that "Warranty" will cover most everything like that where the typical warranties don't. Just a thought if you don't want to "eat getting it fixed" ever again. Thanks for the post to others, it really helps if people know not to wait on such issues.

Why doesn't my ice maker dump the ice out into the ice bin?


several reasons. 1) the ice level sensor bar is pushed up. 2) the motor may have accumulated ice inside it causing it to stop turning. 3) Ice tray thermostat may be bad not heating the tray just prior to dumping.

Does dump valve shut off after making ice

Why does water not shut off after making ice


Is the bin drain line and dump drain line tied together. If so then it is melting ice from the bin. now when ice machine starts up it will dump the old water in sump tray so it will be fresh water during new freeze cycle.

Ice maker problem


Clear the Ice tray by pressing the button under the ice maker. The problem is that the ice is in the first couple of slots is not dumping and the tray tries to fill again and over flows. I pressed the button and cleared the tray of ice (This will tilt the tray and twist it to empty it) that was re-frozen several times without dumping. My ice maker works perfectly after I did the above. I think the problem arises if the door did not close completely. I stopped hanging the dish cloth on the door and on my LG Dish wisher. I hope this helps

If you pop the front cover off the ice maker you will find a screw with a plus and minus on it. Adjust it and that will cut the water fill down and should solve the overfill problem.If the ice is not dumping spray the tray with Pam and that should solve the dump problem.

Ice tray sometimes stuck when dumping off ice


I had the same problem. I did the following and it now works great. The ice tray has a square tab on the rear leftside. As the tray rotates to dump the ice, the tab runs on a curved section of the the ice maker frame. The curved section becomes rough with use and causes the tray to stick when it is returning to the fill position. I carefully sanded the curved section of the frame to smooth it out. No problems since.
One does have to dismantle the ice maker to effect this repair.
