Do you mean the ice cubes are too large to be individual cubes and come out as a lump? The water is filled by a timed fill so if the fill solenoid stays open a little and drips water into the cube tray it will have more water than normal. I guess I'm not sure if you mean the ice cubes are stuck together in the tray or are they sticking together in the holding bin area?

One of the main common and easiest causes of an ice maker that will not dispense ice is that an ice clump has been formed inside. In order to have the drop the ice cubes from the mold the heat is released to lightly to melt them. Sometimes you might need to remove the entire bin or and even defrost the ice maker.
