This happens when the ice maker does not get the correct amount of water . Replace the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig , where the wall waterline connects to , on the fridge .

Sometimes ice melts in ice maker. Water drips down and refreezes.


There is a heater built into the ice maker bottom to help release ice cubes from the machine. Under normal conditions the heater only come on when the ice maker starts to run and then jambs against the frozen cubes. When it stalls and jambs against the frozen ice cubes, the heater comes on to melt the cubes enough. I think you have a defective ice maker and the heater is coming on to much or at the wrong time, Since your temps go back to normal with the ice maker turned off, I am almost sure thats your problem.

Intermittant ice making


When you see this happen can you feel the bottom of the ice maker to see if hot? What is the correct model number? I am trying to understand if it is the ice maker heating element is stuck on while heating the ice maker to release the cubes or if the water control valve is allowing the water to come in through the fill tube like a leaking faucet. Thanks, John Tripp Appliance 911

My LG refrigerator will not produce ice cubes, only crushed ice.


Hi,
Ice maker makes crushed ice.
1)For every 6 moths or 1 year you have to replace the filter.The decreased flow is caused due to filter problem.You said you cleaned the filter and the problem still persist.
2)Check the valve see the below picture how ice dispense parts interconnected.Thepat no 15 the valve which will be blocked by ice or dust you have to remove it.Can you see the valve 22 will connected down of water tub.SO check the valve is not frozen.

Simple if the valve decreased flow or crushed cubes means there is some block.May be due to dust or frozen ice.

Note:Just switch of the switch for 8 hours or more and let the frozen ice melts on the valve.Please see to it all the frost melts fully.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Ice is dumped before totally frozen.


Sounds like a water valve problem. The hollow ice cubes are the giveaway. This means not enough water. only things it can be is the ice maker is not turning on the water valve long enough or the water valve is restricted or the water valve has been leaking and has frozen the fill tube. and is only leting out a small amount of water in this case as well you will still need a new water valve.

start with water valve and if that does not solve the problem you will need to replace the ice maker.

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.

Ice cubes are frozen but will not eject into the ice bin.


Use a hair blow dryer to warm up the frozen cubes and get them out of there. Then while the ice cube forming tray is empty dry it off and spray it with PAM cooking spray or another cooking spray similar to it.

Ice maker is making hollow ice cubes, some only half frozen


Most ice makers have an adjustment screw to control the cube size. Its usually hidden behind a plastic panel on the front of the ice maker. A quarter turn either way and some trial and error testing should get you pointed in the right direction to your ideal ice cube.

You might have a frozen line. Also and this seems more important to you its prob to cold, Trust me to cold of a refrig will cause hollow ice cubes first leading to a frozen line. Clean your coils, if you have another refrig empty out into that, unplug it leave doors open a couple days. If you can get to water line use a hair dryer from a distance defrost line, turn down freezer half knotch 1 full one at maximum. should fix issues, especially if filter already changed. If this all check prob a clogged line, not just frozen.
