Your hollow cubes tells me your ice-mkr is not receiving enough water. first check water supply. does your refrig. have a water filter? also you could have a bad/restricted water valve.

Why does Ice in ice maker sticks together, forms clumps. Jams, then kicks latch open


I'm pretty sure there's an owners manual section on adjusting the ICE-MAKER's fill level... (url @ bottom)

Every-other caution SEZ
"Thou shalt not RESET more often than 24 hours"

Over-filling can cause the cubes to be strongly connected... and cause clumping issues in the bin...

Also look to see that the cubes are not hollow... that is a different adjustment.

Make small adjustments... you will be happy...

Big (evidently FREQUENT) adjustment can cause more trouble than inviting the Samsonite gorilla in to SERVICE your appliance...

My ice maker is frosting up. Why is this and what can I do?


Hello,

There can be a number of reasons from an unlevel icemaker (I like to adjust to lean a little towards the wall or backside) to high water pressure, bad fill tube, or low water pressure (low fill).

The most common is making hollow cubes that break open and the water freezes up the rest of the cubes in the bin. In that case you will have lots of shards or hollow cubes.

This is caused most often by a low fill but can be because of a bad icemaker thermostat.

The thermostat is located in the front end and most icemakers fill starting in the rear. If it is not filling all the way to the front where the thermostat is located it cycles before the cubes are fully frozen putting water in the bin that settles in the bottom.

That is most often due to a tap valve or icemaker outlet faucet that is getting plugged up.

Turn it off and after the cubes are frozen check to make sure it is filling all the way to the head end where the motor is located. You should have ice in all the sections.
But if otherwise,


Usually when that happens it means you have an air leak in your ice door flapper, get a flashlight and shine it down in the ice maker chute, if you see light on the other light, you will need a new ice dispenser door.

Hope this helpout.....

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but


Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

My GE Profile refrig ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why would this happen?


Not enough water is being pumped into the icemaker. The water pressure in the water line coming into the refrigerator may be too low, perhaps due to a blockage somewhere.

Move the refrigerator enough to get behind it. Turn off the water at the small valve which connects the water line from the house plumbing to the tube going into the refrigerator. Get a bucket. Remove the refrigerator water line from the on-off valve (there should be a compresson nut holding it on). Point the incoming water line into the bucket and open the valve. Do you have a good flow of water? If so, either there is a blockage in the tubing within the refrigerator or the water valve at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator is malfunctioning.

Ice frozen together


you can adjust the amount of water by popping the front white cover off the icemaker and adjusting a screw . depending on the model the screw will be a flat head on the side of the icemaker or a phillips screw on the front of the icemaker.

Ice maker quit making ice


your refrig has a built in bypass in the filter housing so yes it will work with out a filter in place. if you have not replaced your filter in the last 6 months that is likely the problem. Hollow cubes are usually a sign of not enough water getting into the icemaker then it cycles too fast and harvests hollow cubes.

when the hollow cubes fall into your bucket they bust and put water in with your cubes freezing them together. so by solving your water supply problem you'll solve most of your icemaking issues..

Ice Maker problem


Problem is either that the water is spilling over when the ice tray fills or the ice shut flap is not closing correctly allowing warm air to enter the ice bin. Regards Advisor

My ice freezes together!


Do you mean the ice cubes are too large to be individual cubes and come out as a lump? The water is filled by a timed fill so if the fill solenoid stays open a little and drips water into the cube tray it will have more water than normal. I guess I'm not sure if you mean the ice cubes are stuck together in the tray or are they sticking together in the holding bin area?
