Ice made but will not dump.


Hello, There is a heater in the bottom of the tray where the ice cubes are formed. The heater melts the bottom of the ice cubes just enough to release the ice cubes from the mold. I suspect your mold heater is not working.

Hi have LG fridge, ice maker making ice but freezes into one solid block instead of staying in individual ice cubes making it impossible to dispense do you have any ideas a sto why this is happening and...


Sounds like this is a water level problem. Too much water is being released into ice tray, which raises the water level above the depth of each cube form, causing one big cube. You can adjust the water level.

Is it true that if you remove the white box where the ice cubes fall into, that it will stop the ice cubes from being made? I am interested in temporarily stopping the ice cubes from being made (4 months...


Removing the box may stop ice making on some refrigerators but not all. Look for an on-off switch inside your ice maker. Turning it off will not only stop the cubes from forming but in some cases will also stop the freezing action so you should remove any cubes that are there or they will melt and the melt water will run out of the ice maker. If there is no on-off switch you can raise the sensor arm up or block the ice detector beam to trick the ice maker into a "full" mode. That will stop the ice making function but not the freezing function. You could also turn off the water supply to the refrigerator if you do not need the water dispenser to work when you are not making ice cubes.

The cubes are hollow and keep get stuck when they try dispence


The cubes are hollow? Means not enough water coming in on the fill cycle to fill the metal ice tray (netal form, see solution #2). There should be an adjustment under the end cover, looks like a screw with a spring around it. Look inside the cover and see if the directions are there for adjusting it properly.

Ice cubes form a mass that do not dispense


As long as the ice trays are filling with water, it's not actually the function of the ice maker to make ice. Ice simply forms because the freezer compartment is cold.

The icemaker's function is to sense when ice is formed in the trays and to dump the ice into its container.

This requires the use of a thermostat to sense the water/ice temperture and 'tell' the icemaker when it's time to dump the ice.

During the dump cycle, a heater briefly comes on as the arm swings through the ice cube compartments to assist in loosening the ice cubes and make them easy to dump.

If the icemaker is filling with water but you get no ice, I suspect that either the control circuit (thermostat, relays, and wiring) is not 'telling' the heater to come on, or the heater is burned out.

Some units also have a timer circuit such that both the timer contacts and the thermostat contacts must be close in order to initiate a dump cycle (i.e., it must be time to dump and the water in the cubicles must be frozen).

A skilled homeowner could make these repairs, but if you don't feel comfortable taking your icemaker apart and testing the components, I advise leaving the job to a qualified repairman.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Ice maker dripping water fusing ice cubes


The dual water valve (solenoid) that open and let the water from the line when the ice maker calls for it, is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Water in icemaker overflows into ice cube storage box AND CAUSES ICE CUBES TO FREESE TOGETHER AND FORM BIG ICE CHUNKS. ALSO THE FULL SHUT OFF PADEL HAS ICE FORM ON TOP OF IT


Check the ice maker after it dropped the ice cubes and when it calls for water it should be pouring it for no much more than 7 seconds ,if more it overflows, in this case the module board inside the ice maker has to be replaced(or for almost the same price with parts and labor you can replaced it for a new ice maker) But if water is sitting in the ice maker all the time , the dual valve which supplies water to the ice maker is leaking and needs to be changed (it's located at the back of the fridge in the bottom behind the cover where the water line is hooked up).
