Our just over 1 year old LG ice maker (French door model) has started making a ticking sound that doesn't shut off until I turn off the ice maker. I dump the ice. Turn it back on and after the bucket is full again, the ticking resumes. Will this problem be solved with the new sensor you talked about in 1 of your messages? Is this something that a pretty competent husband might be able to do easily or does it require repair services?
Mine started doing the same thing. The problem with mine was that the part that spins around to eject the ice is hung up... first, it was trapping an ice cube in it... I cleared the cube and it stopped making noise for a while, then a cube hung up again. Now I found that one of the 'teeth,' all the way to the right, was stuck under the housing... the part is bent, and needs to be replaced.
Check the part that spins to make sure nothing is stuck. Service is expected in home soon (I hope).

The ice maker quit working in my LG refrigerator so I decided to take it apart ... LG French Door Refrigerator - In Door Ice Maker Troubleshoot ...
There is a tub that goes through the back of the freezer wall into the ice maker. Sometimes this tube will freeze shut and needs to be thawed out.
The water fill tube will freeze shut from low water pressure. Ether from a bad water valve or low pressure to the refrigerator itself.
Pull the refrigerator out and remove the tube from the back wall to check it.
Also note that,
Sounds like the thermistor is bad in the ice maker itself, and there are 3 more micro switches, and some other things in there too, just easier too replace ice maker than parts for it.
If it turns out to be the ice maker, look on the tag in the ref. side, which list the model number and serial number. look @ bottom of that tag, it will give you a model number for the ice maker kit you need.
I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.
