Ice cubes melting then refreezing in clumps

I'm not having problems with the ice maker generating ice cubes. Instead after the ice cubes drop, they appear to melt somewhat, then refreeze in clumps.

    My issue is similar but the drip tray in the door also fills with water to the point where it overflows onto the floor. Not sure if it is ice melt or if the water supply fails to shut off. Any tips/tricks on troubleshooting the water supply valve?

    As far as the ice maker melting, It really isnt. It is just a poor design. If you open the left door to fast while ice is trying to freeze in the icemaker tray and the water isnt frozen yet when you open the door to fast some sloshes out and spills in your ice bucket making it freeze together in a big clump. This is a hassle but you just have to break it up and all is good. It has become such an issue we try to keep all the things we use most often on the right and not open the left door very much at all. Which is a hassle. When we do open the left door we do it slowly trying to not spill ice that might be being made in the ice tray.

The ice being produced is large clumps that melt and refreeze and stop the auger from turning. I have to use a blowdryer to melt the ice just to remove the bin. Any suggestions?


Can you provide a model number of the refrigerator? Is the water filling too high in the ice maker? Are the top of the ice cubes connected together before the ice drops into the ice bin?

No water to ice maker


This could be because the ice is clumped in the ice bin. When the automatic defrost cycle occurs, heat is transferred to the freezer area. This can cause the cubes to melt slightly and refreeze back together. You can take the bin out and give it a good shake, or simply discard the cubes and start over with a fresh batch of ice cubes. By increasing the amount of food in the freezer compartment, you may be able to buffer the heat that comes from the defrost cycle and avoid clumping issues.
If you have a large ice bin and hardly use any ice, it is possible that the cubes have gotten stuck together just from the weight of the cubes on top of others.

Sometimes ice melts in ice maker. Water drips down and refreezes.


There is a heater built into the ice maker bottom to help release ice cubes from the machine. Under normal conditions the heater only come on when the ice maker starts to run and then jambs against the frozen cubes. When it stalls and jambs against the frozen ice cubes, the heater comes on to melt the cubes enough. I think you have a defective ice maker and the heater is coming on to much or at the wrong time, Since your temps go back to normal with the ice maker turned off, I am almost sure thats your problem.

Ice maker makes ice but will dispense through door. Checked and it is not clogged.

Clump of ice in bucket


That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working as it should.

The evaporator fan and heating system must be checked, and fan, or solenoid, or element must be replaced.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.
