Question about LG LRSC26910 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have an LG refrigerator, but mine is a french drawer model with bottom drawer freezer. I have noticed that in each "batch," the icemaker makes significantly fewer cubes than the number of cavities that are in the icemaker. The cube size, however, is absolutely correct, and can be adjusted with a little electronic setting on the front of the icemaker.
So what I want to know is this: how are the little cavities that make each cube connected? It seems like water just doesn't flow fast enough from one cube cavity to the next, so the tray-filling switch cuts the water pressure off before the further-away cubes have time to fill up? But that doesn't make sense either, because then I would have eight very-tiny cubes, as water would eventually seep to other cavities before freezing. Instead, I have a few plump, full-size cubes, but definitely not the full capacity of the icemaker.
Find the water source for the ice maker(most are under the kitchen sink and are tapped off of the cold water line to the faucets) You need to either shut off the tap by turning it clockwise until it is closed. Then you need to disconnect the vinyl tubing from the valve. get a bucket and place it where it will catch the water from the tap. Gradually open the tap by turning it counterclockwise until water starts to come out of the valve. If you have a large enough bucket open the valve all of the way. If the stream of water does not change then the valve is bad and needs replacing. If the stream is nice and strong then the valve is ok. Turn the valve clockwise to close it, reattach the vinyl tubing and open the vale all of the way. This should improve the quanity of ice cubes. If not then there is a cripmp in the vinyl line between the tap and the solinoid valve on the back of the refrigerator.
