Ice Cube Size adjustment LG SXS Refrigerator. Model GR-L-207 DVZA
I have the above fridge and now find the ice cubes it is producing are too big in size for the worm mechanism to transport them drop down to the hopper.
Can anyone advise how I can adjust/reduce the water content to the ice-making moulds to correct size to operate efficiently. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like this is a water level problem. Too much water is being released into ice tray, which raises the water level above the depth of each cube form, causing one big cube. You can adjust the water level.

With out the full model number it is hard to say. Most 106 model referigators have a modular ice maker. If you take the cover off of the front of the ice maker and look on the right hand side of the motor module you will notice a small plastic adjustment screw. If you turn this screw you can adjust your water fill time to the ice maker.
If you pull out your ice bucket and look on the bottom you will see a long
brass colored rod. Now, if you look inside your freezer section. you
will see the slot the rod enters each and every time you insert your ice maker
bucket. In the down position (normal) it produces crushed ice,
When you switch the lever in the front for ice cubes, there is a plunger
that lifts the rod and produces the combination that only allows ice
cubes to come out. I would first check the plunger behind the panel and
see if it is free.If it is not free it can cause the ice to be crushed...
Hello there Normally You can't change the shape. or the size of the ice that is produced s It's determined by the manufacturer of the ice maker. but if you have the adjustment feature on your icemaker than pull the front cover off of the icemaker ande their will be a round adjustment wheel with different letters along the side these represent the different sizes of the ice that can be produced their should also be a diagram on the inside ov the cover that you just took off that will help explain the different settings ok I hope that this is very helpfull for you.

The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is
acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3
seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is
not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order
to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied
to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water
to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount
of water fills the ice tray.

You have a solenoid switch which switches the
dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working
or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to
observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the
Ice cube tray needs to be replaced if you are referring to the ice bucket area freezing all up. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks
