Ice Maker problem

Ice maker appears to over-fill, making ice cubes too large and not duping properly. Is there an adjustment to make smaller ice cubes?

Remove the cover on the frount of the icemaker and on the right side of the module there is a little and i mean little white adjusting screw, turn it clockwise 1/2 half of a turn clockwise and this is what adjusts the fill time of the ice maker, you may need to adjest back and forth to get the desired size of cubes but do not go more that one complet turn of the screw to get the size
if you can not get it by doing this then the frount module will ned to be replaced

Water leaking than freezing on floor of lower draw under ice maker in subzero 700tf freezer


If cubes are very large the ice maker may be overfilling and need the fill adjusted to allow less water into the maker. Otherwise check the fill tube (runs from the back wall to ice maker) for loose connections or cracked tubing. (In this instance the cubes would be smaller than usual.) If neither of these is the source, then look up to the highest point of ice (water flows downhill) for the origin. Suspect a stopped up defrost drain. Thaw and clear ice, then clear drain tube (DO NOT use a wire for this) with warm water and a turkey baster. Once water is flowing through tube and into drain pan under the unit the problem should be solved.

Ice maker over fills with water


pull the front cover off the ice-maker its self and you will see an adjusting screw on the L/H side. This is where you adjust the size of your cubes. Make the cubes smaller.

Icemaker not making ice cubes.


Amana SXD22S2W refrigerators are made by Whirlpool and what you have happening is common with a couple possibilities. Most likely the W10245167 Water Inlet Valve is not shutting off after the fill time of about 7.5 seconds. If this is happening the water will slowly fill the ice maker tray above the lever that it should and causes the ice to connect together on the top thus not allowing the cubes to be harvested because they are basically welded together as a whole piece. And the other possibility is the ice maker itself is needing an adjustment of the water flow time. Below I will post a Icemaker Repair video telling how to adjust the time and other things to look for. This is possible but most times not always the case. Adjusting the flow time is delicate and a little change can cause too much or not enough water. Lets watch the icemaker a little closer and see if there is ice freezing up in the fill tube behind the ice maker. You have seen the leaky faucets before and an old W10245167 Water Inlet Valve can do just that making a mess inside your freezer and ice maker if leaking. Here is a Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting PDF You can find this info on this page HERE You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these documents. The Adobe Acrobat Reader is available as a free download. I will be here should you have any questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Large mass of ice cubes frozen together in tray, most likely from leaky ice maker. Can this be fixed without purchasing a new ice maker.


have you checked it when it's filling to see if it's overflowing or the heater on the ice maker might not be shutting off and melting some of the cubes but you have to check,also it could be the water valve,see if there's an adjustment on the ice maker,look in your book,some of them have an adjustment,try to adjust it so less water is coming into the ice maker but to answer your question you might need a new ice maker or a water valve,the only way to tell is to watch it when it fills to see what's happening,you can pop off the cover to the ice maker and jump it out with a piece of wire,in the bottom right hand corner you'll see two holes close together,t and h stick the jumper wire in those two holes and the ice maker will start up,watch it until it fills,if it overflows try the screw to let less water into it,if that doesn't work then it's gonna be the water valve letting to much water come into the valve

Check to be sure your ICE door chute is closed or closing properly! I have encountered many of these units that have had the flap break off the mounting tabs inside the dispenser opening. If the flap appears to be intact, I would next guess that your ice maker timing is allowing the ice maker to over fill and spill water into the ice bucket.
You can confirm this problem by looking at the ice maker and seeing if the ice cubes in it are filled right up to the center bar that drives the cubes out of the mold.
Let me know if you have any more questions!
Thanks, BOB

It sounds like you have too large a fill of water in the ice maker. If you remove the ice maker there is a fill adjustment screw under the cover of the ice maker.( the only way to get the cover off is to remove the ice maker)
Very small plastic screw head of about 1/8 inch or less. Ice maker controls water valve by time fill. Believe there is one turn adjustment total available. You might want to put a small hole in the cover before you reinstall it to adjust screw the next time without removing ice maker, believe it will be side facing out. Lastly I think you turn adjustment screw in to decrease and out to increase time of fill.
Suggest leaving a towel on the floor for awhile until you have solved problem.
Next thing to try would be a different ice maker, or if normal sized ice is melting and refreezing in the bin, you have a cooling or thermostat problem .

Good luck

The cubes are hollow and keep get stuck when they try dispence


The cubes are hollow? Means not enough water coming in on the fill cycle to fill the metal ice tray (netal form, see solution #2). There should be an adjustment under the end cover, looks like a screw with a spring around it. Look inside the cover and see if the directions are there for adjusting it properly.

Too much water in amana bottom freezer ice maker


Try closing the valve partially on the incoming water to the icemaker. Close it to a trickle. Water is fed to the icemaker by a short timer. Too much water pressure means too much water. If this helps it but not solve it, get the spec sheet for the icemaker and adjust to make cubes smaller. This shortens the timer. If no joy, you may need to replace icemaker module.

LG ICE MAKER


Be sure that the fill tube is getting into the ice maker and that the ice maker is not blocked with ice.  If everything seems ok, you may have a leaking water valve which causes it to constantly drip water into the ice maker causing the block of ice.
