Question about LG Refrigeration 27 cu. ft. Space Plus Side by Side Refrigerator - LSC27950
My ice maker has stopped making ice- or very little. I cleaned the shoot out dried it up and checked the back line for water. All is OK ? The ice is slow in making and does not eject. the blades are at 4 o'clock. how do I rotate the ejector blades back to two o'clock? Can I test all the componenents of the ice makes -motor, valve, heater-thermostat with a volt meter? what are the values?

icemakers work on a timed cycle and a timed fill. pressing the reset switch i would say solved your problem. I would switch the valves back to the way they were. The valve for the ice is smaller then the door water because the icemaker takes a small amount of water to fill. Good luck

Our water has been working fine.
Our problem is that the feeler arm gets stuck in "up" position, therefore, it doesn't make ice even when the bucket is empty. Someone had suggested the arm may be freezing in place. That seemed to be an accurate diagnosis since every time we turned the ice machine off and gave it time to defrost, the arm would lower to the down position. Subsequently, when we turned the ice machine on, it would freeze in the up position. As I looked closely, I could see some water seeping through the box that houses the feeler arm. I could see where the water could be freezing the arm up.
I didn't have the time to deal with the issue for awhile--over a month (not too big of an issue during the winter months when we're not needing that many ice cubes!). Then just a couple of days ago, I decided to check into the problem again. The box that houses the feeler arm seemed to have dried out a bit since I didn't see any water. Just to be sure, I used a hot hair dryer on it for a few minutes (directing it into the cracks) to dry it out. So far so good! The feeler arm stayed down when we started up the machine and has made a full bucket of ice without freezing up. I hope it lasts.
This may not address the root of the problem: water getting into the feeler arm box.

Yes this is the cause. You can try pulling it down into position. If it will not move or if it moves but the icemaker still does not work then the entire icemaker will need replaced. Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Is there water filing the ice tray? Make sure the tray is engaged and the full lever (wire on mine) is not locked in the raised position cancelling the ice maker. There is the posibility of the timer motor being at faullt. Listen for it's functioning. If the ice bin has frozen water in it, the timing is off and the water is not filling the tray properly .

SOURCE: ice maker does not make much ice
Hi and welcome to FixYa. When an icemaker still makes ice but in a reduced capacity it is usually the result of other problems.
Either there is ice build up on the evaproator coils due a defrosting problem that you do not see or the evaporator fan motor is not running fast enough.
Here is a way to find out. Unplug the unit and use a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for at least 2 hours. This is a manual external defrosting that will rid the evaproator coils of any ice build up.
Plug the unit back in. Over the next 30 hours check to see if your ice made result is much more than before the manual defrost.
If this improves your ice made result then you probably have a defrosting problem with your unit.
You did not say if the cubes were smaller or not so I have to assume the cubes currently are normal in size and that water flow and ice maker fill timing are fine.
