Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator
Same as http://www.fixya.com/support/t154327-inoperative_ice_maker Same relatively new LG model LFX25960ST, ice maker PN 5989JB0001A. Is there a break down or drawing to help me get to the water supply line and thaw, if that is indeed the problem? Issue started after removing a frozen, jammed accumulation of cubes above and in trays. I thawed with warm water. Certainly didn't break anything mechanical that I could tell - fingers cycled fine afterwards. Could I have gotten water in something? I'd assume such an area is relatively water proof - it's a fridge, not a DVD player! :o) But then again, something is wrong and not obvious to me! I'll hold the cube size selector to confirm ejector finger operation to ensure problem isn't greater than I expect. Thank you for any assistance.
I have the same problem.
Ice in the gears.
Splash from opening and closing the door when liquid water is present seems to be the logical problem.
I had cleared the ice before, thoroughly dried the icemaker and reinstalled it. It worked until I adjusted the icemaker to make large cubes.
I will reinstall it and see how long it last. I will also complain to Sear about the short life of this device.

I have a problem with the same ice maker. I elected to remove and disassemble unit. What I found was ice build up under the arm mechanism. I thawed it and reinstalled the unit.
I suspect unfrozen water gets sloshed around and is able to enter the unit. If it happens again I'm going to try to find the entry points and seal them.
Pretty bad design flaw if you ask me. LG are you listening?

I am a service tech and see this problem often , whats happning is every time you open the left door when water has not frozen. the water splashes into the icemaker and freezes, the only fixto the prolem i have found is to replace icemaker, i have found if you try to thaw out you might get one tray of ice out. thanks

The description says you have an LG fridge? I may need the entire model # from the sticker inside the fridge to tell for sure, but there is a motor behind the dispenser controls that opens the door. Let me know if you need more help. Also, you can view parts and diagrams at http://www.appliancepartspros.com/.
