The is a small heater in the boottom of your ice maker that is most likely not working. The heater comes on when the ice reaches a frozen state to allow the ice to melt just enough that the rotating arm can push the cubes out and into the tray.
Unfortunately, it will most likely cost more to have a technician fix the existing ice maker than it would to just have anew one installed.
I would opt for the new ice maker.

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.

Ice Make will not Dump into Bucket


The arm that drives the ice out of the freezer tray is driven by a small motor in the front of the ice maker. The motor has a small gear that drives the larger gear keyed to the front of this arm. If the ice is ever allowed to thaw and re-freeze the driven gear can break one or more teeth off affecting the operation of the ice cube removal. None of the parts of the ice maker are available separately. However these parts are easily repaired with super glue or epoxy. When re-installing the drive arm it must be located with the drive fingers horizontal.

Ice Maker not dumping


Sailor, Samsung put out a service flash on your model regarding the ice maker fill tube. What is happening is that ice is forming on both ends of the fill tube. When the ice tray twists in the harvest it is hitting on the fill tube and pulling it from it's mount. Could this be why the drive motor seems to weak. The flash number is ASC20060525001. They redesigned the fill tube, part number DA63-02928A. Just trying to help you find an answer...Catriver..post back.
