We just figured out our ice maker suppot try is broken and won't allow the ice maker to twist the ice out when it flips. We purchased a new support piece on line. I saw your problem which sounded similar to what was happening to ours. If you need it, the part # is DA61-02205A. Good luck.

This means that the tray is not getting cold enough to freeze the cubes. It must be no more than 12 degrees F for the icemaker to cycle properly.

Make sure your freezer is cold enough. If it is, then the other possibility is that the heater element in the icemaker (which thaws the cubes JUST ENOUGH for them to be pushed out when ready) could be stuck on. This can be easily tested, but the process is a little beyond the scope of this reply. Check this link http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/icemaker/diagicemaker.php

Lfx25978st ice tray stuck


This sounds like a thermostat in the ice maker has failed. Unfortunately, LG provides no replacement parts for the ice maker. They say to just replace the assembly, so there is no alternative other than ice maker replacement. Here is the ice maker to order.

Kenmore 795.5102 will not make ice


The problem is the ice maker, the modular head of the ice maker has broken, hence the clicking sound and the raised arm stuck up. You will need to have an accurate model number and contact a local parts distributor for a new ice maker. It is a simple repair usually only 2-3 screws.

Ice Maker: water freezes in tray, but no ice is dumped to the bin. Unit is NOT trying to add water to full tray.


Check the freezer temperature. It must be below 10F in order for the Icemaker to operate. If you find that the temperature is above that, your problem is not the icemaker, but something else in your cooling system.

The ice cube tray in the automatic ice maker overfills with water. After the ice dumps, the water for the refill overflows the tray and some goes in the dump bin.


Good day,
Sounds like a bad water valve located in the rear bottom of the machine. (not shutting down properly).
Solution is to replace the valve.
In extremely rare cases it can be a faulty ice maker.
The ice maker sends power to the water valve for 7 seconds on each cycle. If the circuit board in the ice maker malfunctions, it could cause this problem.
But again, very rare.

Ice maker overfills and leaks into the ice bin.


I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.

Ice maker stopped working. Turned it off as there's no way I need a bin full off ice. I also don't use a lot of ice. Ice was "getting old" so I dumped it, cleaned the bin, turned the button on and nothing....


The freezer temp needs to be around 0 degrees for that "something" to click to tell it to dump and make more ice. Check the freezer temp and adjust if needed. If a thermometer says it's cold enough you may need that warranty you mentioned.

If you pop the front cover off the ice maker you will find a screw with a plus and minus on it. Adjust it and that will cut the water fill down and should solve the overfill problem.If the ice is not dumping spray the tray with Pam and that should solve the dump problem.
