There are tabs on the ejection tray that overlap and bind keeping the tray from moving forward. Either position the tray precisely in the center until you find the sweet spot, then never move your ice maker again. The other option is to shave either the tabs or the top of the ejection tray. I shaved the tabs and my unit working properly again.
After it makes Ice the cubs fall and the Ice mover - after-makes-ice-cubs-fall-ice-mover-goes-ms02rjtmj0rauii4zxfkt0in-5-0.jpg To remove the ejection tray:
Remove the back cover (6 screws on the bottom of the unit).
Remove the top cover (4 screws now available under the top cover).

Cycle the unit and unplug the power to it when the tray is in the fill with water position, the ejection tray will be all the way forward.

Remove the 2 metal pins holding the ejection tray to the main unit. Be careful since you are working with plastic parts. Since I was both repairman and photographer the needle nose pliers are not positioned correctly to force the pin out in the first photo, it will need to be almost vertical to avoid the tray assembly.

Depending on your model, you could add a rubber band to pull it forward. It's likely a crack in the ice cup near the motor. Known problem on most portable ice machines....

Where does the water go in the model IM90 emerson ice maker

open the lid and remove the plastic ice basket. Look on the walls under the ice basket and you should see a "fill line".. Water should be poured into that area (below where the basket goes) no higher than the max fill line.

I have a Frigidaire freezer LFFU1424DW not freezing. Came home to melting ice and thawed food. I heard clicking noise like a fan but goes off after a few seconds. Help please.

first of all unplug that freezer and wait for 15 mins. move it five feet from the wall. after 15mins, plug it back and kick in compressor at the same time!!!! remember plug and kick at the same time. the ckicking noise come from the starting relais. this says that the compressor has a problem. If it doesn't work ; you will have to call a service person who will replace the compressor for you.

Our two lower slide-in baskets will not stay on track. Even when the load has been reduced, the baskets fall off the track. I have tried to bend the sides to better reach the track, but it doesn't work. ...

No, very rarely internal shelves can be moved between generations. Unfortunately all you can do is an improvisation to keep them in place: you need to make the channel walls higher by gluing some small pieces of thick plastic on them using a powerful adhesive - not superglue, something like Loctite Sumo Glue.

I have a Jenn-Air Refig with the freezer on the bottom. The ICE maker is not working and I think it might be frozen. How do I disconnect the ice maker so i can thaw it out?

Why not do a quick thaw and move the frozen goods over to the firdge for a few minutes and grab a blow dryer. This should give a temporary fix until you can pin point the problem. Be kind to me please with a Thumbs up. I am a long ways away and can only help a little. Raz

Ice maker will only cycle once then it goes to off position . It stop working due to ice build up in supply tube. I removed the ice maker and ran hot water over unit to clear out the ice that was lodged in...

That bar your talking about goes to the full up position just before the end of the harvest cycle then falls right at the end of the cycle. But on a good day it barely drops. Characteristic of that ice maker.
If you ran water over the ice maker try these 2 things.
1. Remove the ice maker and leave it on the counter for about 2 days to completely dry out. Then re-install and try again.
2. If no luck, hang a small weight to the middle of the wire to see if it will drop on it's own.
3. If no luck, you'll have to replace the ice maker. However,
if your commited to buying a new ice maker, first snap off the front cover and look for interference where the wire goes into the ice maker. You can actually remove the whole solid state front end by removing the 3 screws that hold it on and make a more detailed check.
P.S. pull the wire out of the ice maker before this last step. It simply pulls out.

My Frigidaire side by side is not making ice. (Model GLRS267ZAW1)It goes through the cycle but no water is getting into the icemaker. I can pour water in to the icemaker and it makes the ice and dumps it....

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Hopefully you have a filter before the ice maker. Replace this (if you have one) at least every 6 months.
