Question about LG LRSC26980 Refrigerator
I have a 2 year old LRSC 26912SW with an annoying ice maker problem. The water filler tube fills the ice tray, but when the water stops flowing, the last bit of water runs under the tube and drips down behind the ice tray. Everything below gets coated in an ice blanket and I have to chip out a large ball of ice from the ledge under the ice maker about every 2 weeks.
Is there an easy remedy or modification for this problem? It seems there may be a redesigned ice maker available but don't know if it suits this issue. This has been a problem since the unit was new, but I just ignored it like a fool and there is no warranty now. LG just wants to send a serviceman to look at it.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
You may have a bad water valve. The valve has 2 sections, one for the water dispenser and the other for the ice maker. Check those connections in the back of the refrigerator. If everything is ok, replace the water valve.

My ice maker would not return to a level position after dumping out the ice. When the water turned on to refill the ice tray, it would run off the tilted ice tray and into the ice basket thus freezing all the ice cubes in the basket together. To remove the icemaker, there are two screws that hold the icemaker to the top of the freezer. Turn off the icemaker. Remove the left screw and loosen the right screw by removing the screw on the left. Slide the icemaker outward and it should come loose. Unplug the power connector from the icemaker to the freezer. The ice tray can be removed from the icemaker by gently pulling the tray to the right and the slot it goes into on the left side of the icemaker to the left. Once the tray is out of the assembly, inspect the round plastic shaft on the left side of the ice tray. Mine had two flat spots that were worn into the plastic from use. I used a dremel tool with a round barrel sanding disk at the tools lowest speed to remove the flat spots and decrease the overall diameter of the shaft which stopped the tray from sticking. Reassemble the ice tray in the icemaker.
