Question about LG LRSC26980 Refrigerator
The ice tray in my LG fridge usually turn sideway to dump off the ice into the ice bin when ice is ready and then water is filled into the tray again. The problem is the ice tray remain in the bent position rather than retract itself into the horizontal posisition after dumping off all the ice. It looks as if the tray is stuck twisted sideway on one end and stay horizontal on the other end. This caused water to spray over into the ice bin and sometime all over the other part of the freezer compartment. The bottom of the ice bin is frozen stiff and I have to thaw out the tray everyday. Is there something to look for in the ice tray to fix this? how does it actually work? Thanks in advance.
I had the same problem. I did the following and it now works great. The ice tray has a square tab on the rear leftside. As the tray rotates to dump the ice, the tab runs on a curved section of the the ice maker frame. The curved section becomes rough with use and causes the tray to stick when it is returning to the fill position. I carefully sanded the curved section of the frame to smooth it out. No problems since.
One does have to dismantle the ice maker to effect this repair.

I am an attorney near Philadelphia who is considering initiating a class action against LG related to the defective design of their ice maker. I have clients in different states who have had problems that LG fixed, but the problems re-occurred after the warranty expired. I've been advised by mechanics that leaks are inevitable based on the design. Apparently this is a design that LG had used years ago but had discontinued for a while because of leak problems. I'm usually on the defense side of product liability cases, but this seems to be a common defect. If you are interesed in such a suit, feel free to contact me at [email protected].

I had this same problem. After seeing the modified ice tray that's available, it dawned on me to cut a plastic credit card (or similar material) in half and adhere it with epoxy to the inside of the ice tray to mimic the raised edge of the new tray. No more clumped ice or water spilling down into the bottom portion of the freezer! I did remove the ice maker to add the modification, but I think it could be done in place. Just ensure that the adhesive is dry before turning the system on again.
