Most of the times the solenoid is leaking (electric valve that lets water to the ice maker when it calls for it) and when the ice maker calls for water it' ll overflood.To make sure this is the problem , shut of the ice maker and next day look inside of it , if is water , the solenoid is leaking and has to be replaced , if not the problem is with the ice maker and has to be repair or replaced.

Sounds like this is a water level problem. Too much water is being released into ice tray, which raises the water level above the depth of each cube form, causing one big cube. You can adjust the water level.

you need to check the flapper in the door where the ice comes out,, if you take the ice bin out look down in the hole where the ice comes out,, if it is not sealing good it will let warm air come up the chute and melt the ice,, if it is sealing good,, then you need to check and see if the water fill tube( the one that goes into the icemake) is not froze up or has asomething blocking it

The ice in the ice tray becomes a solid block and has to be manually broken apart to get the dispenser working again. Tried changing the temperature on the front panel to no effect.


Good day,
Water leaking from the water fill valve when it should be off can overfill the ice maker cavity causing that, or the fill tube from the back of the machine going into the back of the ice maker has become dislodged.

Machine could be going into it's defrost cycle for too long, warming up the area around the tray causing the cubes to partially melt.

Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing


Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck

Ice Tray Freezes & ice builds up around internal workings of ice cube holder


Check and make sure you door seal is tight. Take a dollar bill and place it between the door jam and gasket, close the door and then pull the bill slowly out. It should be rather tight all the way around. So you will have to do several checks all the way around the door. If you have a bad spot call and have them either replace the gasket or adjust the door.The other thing you can do (I have found most if not all manufacturers require this) empty your ice maker once a week. The problem comes from your refer being a self defrost. There is a heater coil that gets as hot as a range element to defrost the evap coil. It is the defrost cycle that causes the ice to melt down a bit. And the defrost cycles every 12 to 24 hours causing the cubes on top to melt down some. So as your bucket fills whatever was on top melts a bit and by the time you are ready to use several layers may be melted causing them to stick together.

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?
