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.

    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.

    GE side-by-side: freezer making grinding noise. Husband unplugged and removed icemaker. What was the problem and can I fix it myself?

    did it sound like someone snoring in your freezer? that is your icemaker trying to eject cubes, and that noise in and of itself, is nothing to be worried about, that is normal. however, if your icemaker was failing to produce ice, when your husband removed the icemaker, was it near overflowing with ice, or did it look like it just had what would be a normal amount, i.e., the ice in the mold was little more than helfway. if it seemed like it was a normal amount of ice, then the heater on the bottom of the icemaker failed, replace the icemaker. if you had an abundance of ice in the icemaker, you may have a problem with either your water vavle solenoid not closing completely, or the icemaker motor itself is slow, causing the valve to be open too long. without checking it personally, i cant advise either way

    Icemaker freezes up and deposits ice at the bottom of the compartment. My icemaker seems to freeze up and stop producing ice while dumping the water to the bottom of the freezer compartment where is...

    The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze and can't go where it's supposed to. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

    No ice from icemaker

    Read the manual and see if the icemaker has a thermostat that prevents the admission of water into the tray if the freezer temp is too high. Also..make sure the ice level bar is down.
