SOURCE: Samsung Ice Maker

There is no adjustment for the water level. 9 times out of 10 this problem is with the electric water valve itself. It is not opening all the way, and since the amount of water that is allowed into the ice maker is on a time control, the tray is not filling properly. A new water valve should fix the problem. Not very difficult to install. Shouldn't cost more than $25.00 from an appliance parts store. Good luck, dfink

SOURCE: My icemaker is not working. Water not filling tray

Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

SOURCE: ice maker not ejecting ice and then tries to fill tray and leaks

The Ice Maker Tray had a small plastic piece break off. This piece aids the tray in bending to dislodge the ice from the tray. Bosch does not just sell the tray, you will have to buy the whole ice maker assembly. You will need to order Part # 0422 from Bosch. I was not very happy about having to spend $112.00 for this whole assembly when all I really needed was a simple ice cube tray. 
Save the $112 and remove the ice maker. Buy Ice at the grocery store.

How to fix lower freezer, the water dispenses too much into ice cube tray so it overflows into ice bin...

There is an adjustment on your icemaker that controls the amount of water that enters the tray during the fill cycle. Find it and turn it counterclockwise to lessen the water in tray so it does not overflow.

Or, check to make sure that the fill solenoid is shutting down properly (could be sticking)- if not excessive water will enter the tray with same result.

Our ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why?

Your icemaker is not getting enough water to adequatly fill the tray. Before you adjust it, check the status of the refrigerator's waterfilter. If it's old and clogged replace. Next, wait for the tray to fill, and check the level water before it has a chance to freeze. (or take the frozen tray out and allow to thaw). The tray should be about 75% or more full of water. If not, there is an adjustment that can be made to extend the amount of time the solenoid stays open (which means more time for the water to fill the trays). Good luck!

Ice tray over filling causing ice to stick together, is there an adjustment for fill time?

I just replaced the icemaker in my Kenmore Refrigerator with the WR30X10093 Kit that fits many other models of refrigerators also. The water slightly overfills the ice tray and freezes the cubes together...

Congratulations, you have very good water pressure. I am not aware of any adjustment for the time the fill solenoid opens. The easiest thing I can suggest is to adjust the water flow with the supply valve. If you have the typical saddle valve, it has quite a taper to the piercing needle, and you could possibly use that to reduce the water flow, thus the volume of the fill. A little trial and error will be needed to find the right number of turns for the valve to be opened. I also recommend a water filter in the line to reduce contaminants, which makes the ice taste better. The filter should be replaced every 6-months or so depending on the amount of impurities.

Our ice machine does not make full ice cubes. they are small and not complete, they are full of holes.

The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

Ice Maker Overfills With Water

Ice maker has adjustment on right side of power head. If ice maker is inside on upper left, you can remove white cover from it and the adjusting screw in on right. Turning counter-clockwise will decrease fill by 1/2 to 3/4 of ounce. Sounds like a small amount, but ice make only uses 4 ounces per fill. If this does not fix, try replacing fill valve. If ice maker ice bin is in the freezer door, you have to remove cover to ice maker in the top of freezer. Ice maker is screwed into top of freezer and need to be removed to take off cover to adjuster screw. same procedure for reducing water flow time as above.

Amana ice make problem

there is a screw adjustment that accounts for the variations in water pressure among various installations. Without one, problems such as yours will be widespread. Pry open the plastic cover over the icemaker. Look for a screw that has markings and/or arrows near it. I believe that turning the screw counterclockwise will decrease the amount of water allowed in. Experiment with each turn direction as necessary. You should see the amount of water fill with a flashlight. A proper fill should be about 3/4 to 7/8 filled. Never fill 100%. The cube ejectors may break then.

Ice maker

the first problem is solved by reducing the amount of water that pours into the ice tray. the ice maker should have an adjustment for this. pry off the cover and look for a screw adjustment. they usually adjust volume by cw is more and ccw is less water. the last problem "melting ice" is related to the first. one way that I know how these work is a complete cycle time adjustment. the final step of dispensing is to turn on a low wattage heater to help pop the cubes out. now if the timer is running too slow, not only does too much water come in, but the heater is turned on for too long and causing "melting ice". Imagine a clock running with various events triggered by the clock's rotating switch that turns on certain components at the proper time and leaves them on for a finite time. your clock may be too slow.
