RS2630SH icemaker slow production

Since new the icemaker only produces shattered ice, production is very slow, two or three ejects today. The icemaker was replaced once under warranty. New problem today, this morning the container was full of frozen water and the cube tray was iced over. I removed the icemaker, deiced and reinstalled it. It is back to its slow production of cracked chunks and chips, almost like when you put it on crushed.

Had the same problem. This allows 12 seconds for the tray to fill. If your water filter is the least bit dirty or the water supply line is clogged a bit, you will get an incomplete fill and the cubes will be hollow, mishapen, or, in my case, all won't eject properly. Replace your filter. If that doesn't do it then use a shop vac with any kind of modification to it that will fit into the supply line and **** out the blockages. Hope this helps.

    I have the Kenmore version of this product and the same thing happened. My...

    I had water leaking in to the freezer compartment of my LG french-door refrigerator (LFD25860). It was getting on to food in the main basket and embedding it in a block of ice, as well as puddling-up on the bottom of the freezer and eventually blocking the door from closing properly. Because the water seemed to be covering a wider area than you would expect from a blocked defroster drain I didn't believe that my problem was covered by the other FixYa recomendations -and it turned out I was right.
    The problem turned out to be that the "funnel" that the water flows through to fill up the ice tray was blocked by a solid piece of ice. When the icemaker would call for more water it would flow down the clear tube (with the open slots on the top) hit the ice and spray/overflow in to the freezer compartment.
    The solution was obviously to pop this ice out, but that did require me to remove the icemaker from the wall of the freezer compartment. To do this you
    • remove one screw from the bracket on the bottom of the icemaker
    • Slide the icemaker up and slip it off of the two screws with rubber grommets on them.
    By the time I got to that stage I had already removed the basket from the main drawer and removed the pull out tray/basket from the drawer pulls (by simply lifting the plastic tab on the right side and lowering the plastic tab on teh left side). I am not sure if you can remove the icemaker without this step, but I believe so.
    Also, if you want to entirely remove the icemaker from the freezer there is only one plug with wiring to undo. As I mentioned above, the water hose doesn't not connect to the icemaker, it ends above the "funnel" and the water drops in. So removal is much simpler than you might expect.

    As for the cause of the ice block, I am not sure but I believe it was either because the ice maker made too much ise one time and some cubes could not pop out. When additional water entered the funnel it didn't flow in to the ice tray, backed up, and froze in the funnel. The other thought is that when the door was not closed properly while our grandparents were visiting, the ice melted and subsequently re-froze causing the problem.

    Icemaker is not making any ice after freezer defrosting, how long should I wait ?

    Normally a new batch of ice is produced every two hours or so. The ice maker will not eject any freshly made ice until the interior temp of freezer is about 10 degrees; at that point the thermometer will close and initiate the ice ejection and the other steps to make more ice.

    Icemaker is slow in producing ice

    If your icemaker is producing ice, but it is slow, there are 2 likely explanations.
    1. Temperature. Water freezes at 32 deg, but the icemaker won't eject the ice until it gets below 10 degrees. If you always had good ice output and all of a sudden it has slowed down, you're temperature is a little higher than ideal. Check for a door seal not making good contact or try dropping the temp in the FREEZER side a couple degrees
    2. New model. Most new refrigerators make ice much slower than older models to meet energy efficiency guidelines. This is not a repairable issue.

    I have a 12 year old Sub Zero model 624. The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice. And actually, when opening things up we can see ice cubes have formed but they just haven't dumped into the...

    This is the procedure but yours seems to be a faulty Icemaker and needs to be replaced since your freezer is cold enough to make ice rapidly.

    Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
    This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
    See if water is in icemaker.
    Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
    If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
    attaches to water line out of wall)
    If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
    If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.

    Ice maker is producing ice but not dispensing ..filter symbol is being displayed..Any guidance would be appreciated

    order a new icemaker, about 100.00 from parts company, heat element not working to help release ice. Its an easy fix and will save you a service call for 150 additional bucks. Its a matter of taking out old one. First turn off water valve to fridge. Take out old icemaker and remove electrical supply, just a squeeze and the clip should come out. Place new electrical connection, connect water supply line, turn on water line to fridge fridge, the compartment should fill and then ice in about an hour or 90 min.

    Icemaker stopped producing ice

    Your ice maker can be rebuilt. I would disconnect it from the plug and remove it and carefully take it apart. Be careful not to loose the lever arm spring as you disassemble. Look at it once the screws ar removed under the front cover. It is rare to have a defective new water control valve. But once the ice maker is unplugged you will know because the ice maker is what tells the water to come on once the cube rake reaches home position. Sometimes the thermostat that tell the water on is stuck or the micro switch that tells the heater below the ice maker to remain on causing the same symptoms. So it will be most likely the ice maker and less likely the water control valve. The parts are priced so high it is cheaper to buy new than to buy parts. But I have fixed them without replacing parts. Sometimes the micro-switches just get stuck. What to rebuild it and me help you? Sea Breeze

    Samsung RFG297AABP Ice maker sucks

    Me, 3 ice makers in 3 months, Sears sold it to me and is by far the worse telephone support. Have called 13 times to track new icemakers, got ice maker, wrong unit, requiring me to have another tech come out and look at it, they will say "huh, yea it doesn't work"...and the whole ordeal starts again. While the Samsung is a POS, it is really Sears who has caused the cardio stress with their total lack of consumer care, and incompetent rude CSRs.

    Don't buy from Sears...
