Owners Manual is available online at:
If ice is getting stuck in the mold, it usually can be removed using a plastic (not metal) tool to eject it. Sometimes using a cooking spray like PAM (very lightly) on the ice mold can reduce the tendency for the cubes to stick. If you are still having a problem, write back. -- SWT

Ice maker not making ice

Check and see if a cubes or cubes are stuck in the ejection fingers. If the ice mold is full try cleaning the bottom coils. If the ice mold is empty check the water valve solenoid. Most times both the ice maker and water valve gets replaced at the same time. Nothing inside the ice box controls the ice maker. It does it all itself all it needs is for their to be 35f in the freezer or better.

Ice cubes won't eject

if they will not eject . then i would think the mold & or heater have failed . it works like this . it fills / it freezes/ ( the freezer must be 15 deg or lower for ice mker to cycle . ( cck the tempt ) and if ok then the thermo cycles the ice mker . during the harvest cycle the mold heater comes on and warms the mold and releases the ice. the hands move the ice out . .. so if cold enough the ice mker is bad. cheaper to repl ice mker than repair it . in most cases . mm hope this helped feed back pls ..

Hello. Turn off the water to the ice maker. Remove the ice cubes, use a blow dryer to dry the mold and then spray the mold with PAM cooking spray. Let that dry and then turn the water to the ice maker back on. Joe

I usually replace icemakers as a unit. It sounds like the mold heater is out. The system cycles like this: Fill, freeze, mold heat, eject, and start over. The mold heater not working will prevent ejection.

Shot Mold Heater?

The mold heater comes on shortly before the ice is dispensed. It warms up the mold so that the ice releases. The heater, if not working could cause the water to overflow as the ice can not be ejected if the heater does not work. That woud make the appearance that the ice melted and refroze.

Ice Maker Infrared light doesn't light

Each mold tray has a heating element that is turned on to free the ice cubes from the mold tray and allow them to fall into the ice bucket when the tray is rotated into harvest position. Sounds like that is not being turned on... or is defective..
