We have a LG Fridge/freezer model number GRL247WV and the ice tray in the ice maker is broken. The part needed is apparently discontinued and unavaliable. Do you know of an alternative ice tray that could be used Cheers Donna

Hi!!
If you take your old ice tray to any Appliance Parts Store (check your phone book for the one's near you). They should be able to sell you one that will work for you.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Ice maker is not dropping ice


there are 2 things that could be problem, 1 is a heater element that heats the bottom of frozen cubes slightly to allow the cubes to be pushed out into the tray by plastic fingers under the cubes and controlled by a motor. best bet would be to get model number of fridge and/or ice maker and look for direct replacement online. There is a company out of Chicago that offers replacements for lots of models. Sorry I dont have their name, but google the results for ice maker for your make/model fridge.

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?


Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

My LRSC26923TT side by side fridge/freezer has stopped making ice. It still dispenses water but it would not dump the last tray produced. I removed the cubes from the tray by hand, emptied the freezer, and...


Unfortunately, Ice Makers are notoriously unreliable and most require more expertise than a handyman possesses. Most require replacement of one of the 4 main parts (usually not generic): drive motor, water solenoid, heating release element or bin full ice arm control switch.
A Certified Technician should be able to diagnose the problem and suggest a repair or replacement.

Samsung Refrigerator makes ice, but then quits.


I have this same thing happening, also. I have not been able to find a solution to this issue, however. The ejector blades push against the ice, apparently a gear pops loose with a loud clicking sound and the heater either does not work or never turns on. I end up killing the breaker to thr refrig,`removing the icemaker, letting it wrm up dumping the ice and putting it back in.

Icemaker tuns but ice does not drop out


OK the reason the Ice isn't dropping is that the element under the icecube tray isn't working. You'll need a new Ice tray with element I'd be guessing, but see how you can buy it. Some models you need a whole new ice maker. Cheers

LG SXS Refrigerator LSC26905 ice maker


I was able to order the ice tray myself and install it in the fridge - it's not hard. I ordered from one of the parts sellers linked to at the LG website, not those listed in other posts here.

Here's how to replace the tray:

You need to remove the tray dumping mechanism to do this.
  1. Remove the ice bin, set it aside (don't forget to deal with the ice melt).
  2. Turn the ice maker off (LG says to unplug the fridge, I didn't).
  3. On the left hand side of the ice tray dumping mechanism there is a screw helping to keep the entire thing suspended from the ceiling of the freezer. Remove that screw- don't worry, the mechanism will stay put for now.
  4. The dumping mechanism can now slide forward- note that you can't completely remove it from the freezer yet, but slide it forward and it will no longer be suspended from the ceiling. Don't let it drop or hang.
  5. You need to disconnect its power supply now. On the left hand side you should see a small bundle of wires coming from the back of the freezer to the dumping mechanism. It connects to the dumping mechanism's set of wires with a pair of white plugs. Pull these plugs apart. You may need to pry the catch on these plugs apart while you pull.
  6. Now you can take the dumping mechanism out of the freezer (and close your freezer).
  7. To remove the ice tray you need to slide the housing that contains the rotating motor out of the housing. This is on the right side of the mechanism. If you have trouble identifying it look at the underside of the entire thing and you'll see a small "test" button. That button is on the motor.
  8. To remove the motor you'll see two catches on the right side- you'll need to pull these catches out without breaking anything. You'll be able to slide the motor down and out when you get it right.
  9. Sliding the motor out lets you get the old ice tray out now. There is probably a set of white wires routed through a little catch on the old ice tray that you'll need to free.
  10. Put the new ice tray back on the motor. You'll need to get the left side secured at the same time you get the motor housing in its catches of the dumping mechanism.
  11. Reroute those white wires back on the new ice tray.
  12. Reconnect the electric wires to the housing.
  13. Slide the entire dumping housing back onto the ceiling of the freezer and screw in on the left side.
That's it. You can press that test button on the underside of the motor. This will dump the tray and immediately refill it with water so you can observe if everything is working.

Ice tray sometimes stuck when dumping off ice


I had the same problem. I did the following and it now works great. The ice tray has a square tab on the rear leftside. As the tray rotates to dump the ice, the tab runs on a curved section of the the ice maker frame. The curved section becomes rough with use and causes the tray to stick when it is returning to the fill position. I carefully sanded the curved section of the frame to smooth it out. No problems since.
One does have to dismantle the ice maker to effect this repair.
