This is most likely due to a flow problem.
Check the tapper valve (where the tubing starts off the water main)
Many times this can be blockd with sedimentt - especially if it is installed improperly at the bottom of the tubing)
Please accept this answer to clear it from the work queue, and re-post if necessary including the problem you are experiencing - ie. slow freeze time, small cubes, hollow cubes, not all cube slots filling with water etc.

Thanks :D

Magic Chef refrigerator model CTF1923. erratic ice production

As long as your freezer temperature is at 0 you should have steady ice production. If you have to jumper the ice maker to get it to harvest then you most likely have a bad thermostat. That coupled with the leak issue really warrants just replacing the entire ice maker.
Be sure to ask for pricing on both the ice maker by itself as well as the complete kit. You may be surprised to find that the entire kit (including a new valve, line and bucket) will cost lest than just the ice maker by itself.
Good luck!

Ice Maker Stopped Working

On my three MC refrigerators over the last 30 years, this almost always meant the pipe that lets water into the icemaker is frozen. Sometimes it gets blocked (especially peas or corn). If it's frozen, use hot water and a turkey-baster type "sprayer". Do not use boiling water. If the freezer has been really active, you could have the plastic pipe in the back partly frozen, too. Be sure to shut off the water and be very very careful when moving the fridge. Some installers don't leave enough copper tubing to allow the fridge to be pulled all the way out. If the tubing gets crimped or broken, it's time to call a plumber.

The freeze-up pretty much always happened when the freezer was set too cold for the amount of food in it. When my kids were teenagers I had to unfreeze the line 2 or three times a year.

Magic Chef Side by Side MOdel RC224RDA

I have the same problem. It turned out to be a problem with the doors. When my kids go to get a snack and close the fridge door (read slam the door) the air pressure pops the seal open on the freezer door causing the ice cubes to begin melting. The bottom items stay frozen (warm air rises). It took me a long time to work this out.
Remove the ice maker tray. Remove the ice blob, being careful to put the u-shaped wire ice-level sensing wire thing, in the up position or the system will dump ice and water all over the freezer. Put all back clean and dry and buy a velcro adhesive strip and install it on top of the freezer door to prevent the door from always blowing open.
Hope this helps

Ice maker

Hollow ice is a sign that the icemaker is not getting enough water.
You will want to make sure there is enough water coming to the fridge and any filters in the system are clean.
If you need help checking it, please post the complete model number from the fridge and I can help you more.
