Sounds like the water valve has a small leak and continuously drips water onto the icemaker.  Have the water valve checked and if necessary, replaced.

SOURCE: LG LRSC 26923TT Side by Side Refrigerator Problem with ice maker

We have the same problem with the ice cube tray. Repairman said the tray must be replaced every year as continual bending warps it out of shape. Replace every year and your problem is solved.

SOURCE: LG ice maker only making two ice cubes at a time

Colenoid in the ice dispenser may be clogged or have a small amount of trash in it. Is there a filter on before the fridge (just after the ice maker shutoff)?

The ice door will not open like it used to. Now I have to reach in with my fingers to open it to get ice through the door.


Good Morning Misty, thank you for your post!

It is a good idea to clean the ice dispenser and ice container if the ice dispenser sticks or before contacting an experiencing technician to assist further.

1. First, stop ice production by lifting the wire signal arm to the "up" or OFF position (side-mounted) or the ice maker's On/Off power switch turned Off-set to the "O" position (rear-mounted).


2. Remove ice container by lifting up and out. Empty and carefully clean the container with mild detergent. Rinse with clear water. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners. Allow ice container to dry completely before replacing in the freezer.


3. Remove ice chips and clean the shelf and chute that supports the ice container.


4. Replace the ice container. Lower the wire signal arm on the ice maker to the "down" or ON position (side-mounted) or the ice maker's On/Off power switch is turned On-set to the "I" position. (rear-mounted) and the ice maker will resume production.


I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

How does the ice maker work. I see a bin on the freezer side that is empty. Do I fill it with water?


Hello
No ,please don't do that. That tray collects ice cubes. System fill is automatic. Look for a wire arm of some kind and make sure it is in down or "make ice" position .Then give it plenty of time to cycle.

Ice maker over makes ice then ice cube tray cannot empty and new water comes in and overflows into ice bin. stop are does not seem to be low enough to cut off production.


WHEN THE UNIT GETS FULL YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO SHUT ICE MAKER OFF...
unfortunately there is no sensor to tell the ice maker to stop production so this will happen. sounds like the unit makes more ice that your family uses which normally would be a good thing... just shut the ice maker off until time to make some more and then switch back on ...
hope this helps you out.....

Water dispenser works, ice maker makes ice but doe not dispense


Remove the ice bucket/container from inside the freezer compartment. Examine underneath at the front of the container to see if ice cubes are lodged between the metal blades. If cubes are caught in this area, they will prevent ice from dropping into the glass/cup.

I have a side-by-side (MDL: 106.53552202). My ice maker has stopped working... I do get water from the door. The ice container is empty, the switch is turned ON.


there could be a blockage of frozen water in the fill tube of the ice maker.
if there is no blockage then the nex thig to check is the main water valve that supplies the water to the ice maker.
you can check the power from the main pcb board to the ice maker and make sure you have current to the ice maker
if all else fails replace the ice maker
i hope this has helped in some way good luck

GE Ice Maker that leaks water down the freezer wall


Ice makers have limit switches, thermal temp sensors, heating element and if anything gits out of order with these parts they will begin to do strange things like that. Now if you would like to remove it and have a look at the internal parts you may find the problem. They are a little easy to loose parts so be careful if that's your choice. A series of about six different cycles happen when they fill until the time it empties and begins again. They may cost less if you don't see what wrong to purchase a new ice maker. If you would like more help feel free to ask, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice Maker Won't Stop Making Ice


There is an adjustment for the "harvest" bar (The bar you lifted up). That bar you are lifting up tells the ice-maker that the cubes have fallen into the ice storage and starts the ice-making cycle over. It is also the Limit switch for the ice level in the storage container ... if it stays up for preset time determined by the manufacturer it stops making ice... most all ice-machines use the same devices. they vary little in design. Sometimes you can just gently bend the bar down to the point where it turns-off the machine at the level you want ... unless you can get to the adjustment hinge you can adust it there. For the fact it goes off when you lift it all the way up tells me the harvest switch is turning the ice-maker off.
