Good day,
In almost all cases, that problem is due to the dual water valve located at the bottom rear of the machine. It is not repairable and must be replaced.
Assuming the freezer is staying at it's normal temperature, when the ice maker fills, the water valve described above does not shut off completely after a normal fill, causing water to dribble down the fill chute freezing the cubes together.

Very common problem, and changing the valve is not difficult, and most appliance parts houses carry them.

R water fill keeps dripping after tray is full causing icecubes to freeze in box and arm will not turn to dispence ice


Good day,
That should be the water fill valve in the bottom back of the machine.
It is not shutting down completely, after performing each cycle.
This is due to a diaphragm in the valve having gone bad.
The only solution is to replace the complete valve assembly.
A fairly easy nuts and bolts job.

Before trying to dispense however, remove the bucket, and dump the ice. Forcing the auger drive motor can cause further damage.

Thank you for usingFixYa

I have hollow icecubes too, and water from the un frozen icecubes spills in bin and all the other cubes stick together. IS There Not a way to adjust the timer on the icemake to turn slower so they will...


your hollow cubes tells me your ice-mkr is not receiving enough water. first check water supply. does your refrig. have a water filter? also you could have a bad/restricted water valve.

Ice in bucket freezes into a lump, mechanism freezes


it sounds like the ice chute door is stuck open. on this model it can slip off the "hinge pin" or the plastic that holds the pin can break. if the flap is broken it is replacable. the pin can be put back in. if the plastic that holds the pin is broken, you need to replace the whole door. expect to wait 6-8 weeks for a new door, sooner if lucky. cost is $400 +++ more for stainless.I hope the pin fell out. hope this helps

Kenmore refer #70162990 ice maker leaking into storage tray


Please confirm you have given the complete model number.

If the icemaker has a bail wire to control how much ice is in the bin, there is a fill switch inside the front cover of the ice maker which allows you to increase or decrease the amount of fill.

You may also have a cracked or corroded ice mold. Check by filling the icemaker with water manually, and watching to see if it drips once the initial overfill stops dripping. This would also be indicated by the ice cubes being smaller than usual.

LG wont dispence ice


hi there,

sounds like you have ice in the ice bucket. it's most likely that the ice paddle is jammed or broken. check around the ice door and paddle for anything visibly broken as well. you may have to replace the ice paddle.

Ice maker problems


If the ice bucket is over filling there may be a problem with the ice maker as this should stop making ice when the bucket is full. The ice in the bucket can freeze together just due to the weight of ice cubes . I suggest you check the ice within the bucket is all broken up and not frozen into big lumps

Ice frozen together


you can adjust the amount of water by popping the front white cover off the icemaker and adjusting a screw . depending on the model the screw will be a flat head on the side of the icemaker or a phillips screw on the front of the icemaker.
