When you look into the ice holder it's all clumped together - ice slices frozen together. Sometimes the ice slice is frozen all the way around but the center is hollow. I'm guessing that it is ejecting the ice before it is fully frozen. Is there a way to adjust the time on it. My freezer is freezing everything else fine. Ice Cream, veggies, meet, etc. everything is solid - so I don't necessarily want to turn down the temp on my freezer. Any help would be great as it is hard to get ice out now.

This is due to no power going through the relay that holds down the slice bar, when the setting is reached, the relay is de-energised, and it Pops Up. It is NOT doing so, due to A: No Power to the Unit, or B: Power is getting to unit, but one or more "Elements" is burnt out. or it has developed a controller fault.
Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out. look for an adjustment behind the plastic
endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then
try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell
you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.
This may sound strange but you will find that the mold coating is peeling off of the aluminum mold. This causes the water to wick (climb) the loose coating and up over the top, leaking out making an ice clump on the ice maker and clumps ice in the container together. It would be easy enough for the average person to replace the ice make. Due to its age that would be smarter to replace than to repair the old one. It is a Whirlpool part #4317943 and comes with some instructions.
IF FREEZER IS A THE CORRECT TEMP/ O-10 DEGREES, THE FREEZER IS NOT THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A THERMOSTAT IN YOUR ICE MAKER, IT IS NOT ADJUSTABLE. IT IS A SMALL BI METAL SWITCH THAT TRIGERS ICE MAKER WHEN IT REACHES ITS PROPER TEMP. THE PROBLEM IS, IT IS TRIGERING IT AT TO LOW OF A TEMP.NOT ALLOWING THE ICE TO FREEZE SOLID. IF YOU CAN HANDLE IT CHANGE BIMETAL SWITCH OR CHANGE ICE MAKER ITSELF.

sounds like your just might not be using enough ice and they are defrosting and clumping together.figure your pulling ice from front of bucket the the backs hardly get used espescially in winter your not using as much ice. or ice maker is slightly over flilling water and dripping over rear of unit
I see this a lot with people who mainly used crushed ice. It will leave small pieces of ice behind and add up to a clogged situation. If you mainly used crushed ice you will need to run full cubes thru every so often to keep the chute clear. Another cause of this would be the flapper door on the dispenser doesn't close completely and warm air gets in and melts the ice in the bin so it clumps together and won't dispense. In this case you may need to replace the solenoid that shuts the door and/or the door. Let me know what you find.
