Possibly need to lower the temperature in the freezer. Take note how much water is dispenced into the trays when a batched is deposited. If not enough possibly check the water if it is not freezing. ie insulate the open pipe area.

My icemaker on LG refrigerator is making very few ice cubes


Hello,

If the ice maker is producing ice poorly, making small cubes or too few cubes then it means your ice maker is probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that is not cycling properly.

First, check the water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure it is having a good water flow. If the flow is poor, that means you will have to, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water in the ice maker.

Second, check the water-inlet valve. You will need to replace the water inlet valve if it has failed.

Third, check the freezer temperature. It should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

Lastly, check the ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.

The above is what you need to check on........

I hope this helps....

Take care.

Tip

Ice maker stopped working


When the ice bin fills up, it won't let the arm all the way down. The arm must go down for more ice to drop into bin. Sometimes an ice cube or two will get caught under the arm and prevent it from cycling. Continuing to use the ice maker will empty bin but no new ice is made. Clear any ice cubes from under the arm and the cycle will start again. My ice maker takes about twelve hours to fill after it has been emptied but ice from the door is available almost imediately.

Some one else reported the same problem...It just drops a few ice cubes a day 2 maybe 4 if we're lucky


The following assumes that the ice compartments are filling with water. Be sure you check that as the first step in diagnosing your problem.

The ice maker is controlled by a temperature sensor which determines when the 'dump' cycle begins. There is a heater in the small ice cube wells that furnishes heat when the dump cycle is initiated in order to make the ice cubes come out of the well.

If this heater is not working, you'll get the symptoms you describe. Possibly a few ice cubes will dump without the heater, but most will not and since the remaining ice is already frozen, another cycle won't occur until the cold ice is dumped, so all you get are those few cubes that just happened to dump without the help of the heater.

It's possible that the control thermostat is bad, not 'telling' the heater to come on, but in most cases, when the thermostat or anything in the control circuit goes bad, the ice maker will simply stop working.

Which brings us to the heating coils surrounding the ice cube compartments. It can be removed by reasonably skilled homeowner, but if you feel uncomfortable about taking the ice-making mechanism apart, best to leave it to a qualified repairman.

Hope this was helpful.

Ice maker not dumping as frequently and cubes freezing one large chunk


The first thing I would check is the cleanliness of the condenser coil under the fridge. Make sure the fan under there is running, and that the coil is clear of dust. The ice maker requires 15 degrees for a period of time before it will make ice and dump. If the temp in the freezer is colder than this, then it is likely the ice maker needs replaced. They can be replaced fairly easily with just a couple tools. (1/4" nut driver and a flat screw driver). There is a plug where it plugs into the freezer side wall, and a bent tube that supplies water to the tray. If not sure what to do, have a service tech look at it.

There are three common problems with icemakers:

There's no ice
Small or too few ice cubes
Specks in the cubes
Note: If your repair problem isn't listed, click here to email the RepairGuru. He will give you the help you need.


There's no ice If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:

  • It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:


    • If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.


    • If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.


    In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.


  • The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.


Small or too few ice cubes If the ice maker is producing ice poorly--making small cubes or too few cubes--you probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that isn't cycling properly. Check these:

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.


  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.


  • Check the freezer temperature. If should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


  • The ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.


Specks in the cubes If you find black or gray specks in your ice cubes, have a look at the ice cube tray. If the protective coating is peeling away, the most economical solution is to completely replace the ice maker.

Ice maker not working properly


Make sure the fill tube going directly into the icemaker is not touching the part that receives the water, if it is touching the water will spray all over and not go into the cavity
