I've got the LFX25960ST model. The icemaker jammed up with ''medium'' sized cubes and the cubes were stuck together at the top. I emptied the ice bin, but the metal arm was stuck in the ''up'' or raised position, so the icemaker won't make ice. I shut the icemaker off for 12 hours and the arm dropped back down and ''free-moving'' so I turned the icemaker back on, re-installed the ice bin, ice cubes set to ''medium''. 12 hours later, still no ice and the arm is stuck in the ''up'' position! I pretty sure that if the arm was down, the icemaker would make ice, meaning I don't think the problem is with other components. Any ideas?
Its the ice maker .water or condensation has built up in the ice maker modual and refroze upon turning unit back on.either get a new ice maker or uninstall the ice maker and let it dry for a few days and reinstall.but it could happen again that way.or maybe not.

Your rubber tube is most likely not freezing up and therefore does not need to be heated but only you would know for certain. My experience with ice makes spans several different models but I've found the most common problem for me with no ice being produced is when the bar that shuts of the icemaker gets stuck in the up position because - ice cubes have frozen into a big clump, Ice cubes have jammed the bar by sticking between the ice tray and the bar, or the gear inside that rotates the ice cube tray is stripped in that area because of previous jams and needs to be replaced.
This could be because the ice is clumped in the ice bin. When the automatic defrost cycle
occurs, heat is transferred to the freezer area. This can cause the cubes to melt
slightly and refreeze back together. You can take the bin out and give it a good
shake, or simply discard the cubes and start over with a fresh batch of ice cubes.
By increasing the amount of food in the freezer compartment, you may be able to buffer
the heat that comes from the defrost cycle and avoid clumping issues.
If you have a large ice bin and hardly use any ice, it is possible
that the cubes have gotten stuck together just from the weight of the
cubes on top of others.
The auger arm in the back of the freezer should be rotating to test this hold the door switch in and push the dispise button down. If it does not even try it could be the control switch on the door. the auger motor is a 120v motor and relatively strong. You can test to see if you can manually turn the arm it should trurn stiffly. Its alsoi a chance you don't have the been in place correctly.
Hello there Normally You can't change the shape. or the size of the ice that is produced s It's determined by the manufacturer of the ice maker. but if you have the adjustment feature on your icemaker than pull the front cover off of the icemaker ande their will be a round adjustment wheel with different letters along the side these represent the different sizes of the ice that can be produced their should also be a diagram on the inside ov the cover that you just took off that will help explain the different settings ok I hope that this is very helpfull for you. Best regards Michael
The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.
No I don't think electronic. But you may need to check the water control valve on back and pour tap water into ice maker to see if it cycles and dumps. Remove the wires on the water control valve and with an ohm meter check both coils. The resistance should be close to the same. Let me know, Sea Breeze
Does your unit have the cube size selection button inside of the ice maker door , if so is it lit up, if so is it on a cube selection. If not that is the reason the ice maker is not working because even though the unit is on the cube selection has not been made. This should solve your problem.
