LG ice maker, fill tube leaking behind ice tray

Please Help!
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.

SOURCE: My icemaker fills the tray but when the water

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.

How do I stop my ice maker water filler hose from freezing - which stops water from filling the tray?


This problem is caused by a defective water control valve that does not stop leaking water like a dripping faucet. This causes water to freeze in the water fill tube thus blocking fill of ice tray. Replace water control valve.

Make sure the unit is not all iced up, try to defrost it and then retry, turn off the ice maker and water supply before defrosting. Put a thermoter in the freezer to check temp.

LG Fridge-Tube where water dispenses in ice tray is frozen solid


I think that the solenoid valve that supplies water to the ice maker is leaking ,it is located in the back of the refrigerator where you see a copper pipe or plasticpipe thatfeeds water to the refrigerator. Shut the water off and the power and take it out and replace it .

Faulty ice maker


Hello. Yes, that is the correct position for the icemaker feeler arm. The updated icemaker has a longer feeler arm that hangs down a little more (thereby shutting off sooner when the ice piles up not so high).

Your water leak onto your food is from water spilling out of the front left corner of the ice tray during fill. This has also been updated with a plastic lip that keeps the water from sloshing out when filling up.

The photo shows that your ice tray appears to be unlevel and drooping in the front left corner. This happens with flex tray icemakers over time. The icetray does not fully flex back to its level posiiton. I do not feel you need to replace the entire icemaker. Repalcing just the ice tray should fix your issue.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Ice maker not dispensing ice


It is possible that the water valve behind the refrigerator is either defective or the wire connection is loose.  Also check the fill tube where the water comes in and see if there is ice blocking the fill tube.  Since it's under warranty, have it serviced by the LG warranty to resolve this issue.

Lg side by side Ice maker not filling all of the tray/dripping


You may have a restriction in the icemaker.  Remove the icemaker and make sure that there is no ice buildup other than in the cube slots.  Also make sure that the fill tube is clear of any ice obstruction.

LG LRSC 26923TT Side by Side Refrigerator Problem with ice maker


We have the same problem with the ice cube tray. Repairman said the tray must be replaced every year as continual bending warps it out of shape. Replace every year and your problem is solved.
