I had a problem with the ice maker, the ice tray was warp and was replaced with a different one. Now this tray does not hold the same amount of water as the old one so it spills in the the ice bucket and causes blocks of ice. Now the repair company said this is the only tray they produce samsang and do not produce the old tray, now they are telling me I have to replace the whole ice maker for over $400!!!. How do I find a old tray that would work? Also is there a way to adjust the water for the tray?

The ice tray warps after so many years and is no longer level. Replace ice tray for $3.05 from RepairClinic.com Item #1266779 ...From what I can see this Item is the same for for all LSC #######TT refrig.icemakers. Another solution I found was to adjust the flow amount into the tray. The only screw that might have worked for this did not turn.
this is a easy job . the ice mker will change out with no changes . maytag uses this same unit and is very common . 3 mounting screws and the wire harnes is a plug in / no spec wiring needed .. mm hope this helps . feed back pls .
when ice maker goes into harvest the unit stall on the ice /the heater comes on and when tray is warm the ice moves out on the stripper . . i would think the tray is loosing its coating and the ice does't release and the heater stayes on too long . may have to replace the mold or ice maker .. ****
I had the same problem and would "temporarily" fix it by opening the front plastic cover (remove the 4 screws) and CAREFULLY remove the front - sometimes all the plastic gears will fly off but you can get them back because they only fit one way. Once the gears are off, you can reset the tray back to its fill position. Fit the gears back into place. Replace the front cover and it worked like a champ for a couple of weeks when I'd have to do it all over again. I finally got tired of it and ordered a new unit through ebay. Easy to replace BUT now the water won't come on to fill the tray!!!! UGH Hope this helps
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
The icemaker relies on the motor to twist the ice tray about 120 degrees or so the dump the ice out of the tray. In order to get the ice to separate from the tray the force of the motor actually torques the tray against the rear plastic support (much like you would twist an old fashioned ice tray that you fill up by hand). Anyway, this puts a lot of force on the plastic elements that support the tray and they break after time. Once the plastic support breaks in the back there is nothing to get the ice out of the tray and each subsequent filling of the ice tray results in water spilling all over the ice bin and eventually leaking out the front of the refrigerator. You can order the part and fix it yourself (the part is DA61-00244A and is available from a number of websites. Total cost about $16 with shipping.
