    What temperature is the freezer set to? What is the make, model, and age of the unit? Have you ever cleaned the coils? Put a thermometer inside the unit and measure the temperature.

Possibly it is because fridge is not cooling correctly(Ice cubes hollow).. Suggest proper defrost. if it is cooling partially, it shows cooling is trying to take place (Make sure before you switch on after defrost, check for proper water drainage.Water must flow to the compressor once defrosted.Take note if the fan runs correctly.

Ice is dumped before totally frozen.


Sounds like a water valve problem. The hollow ice cubes are the giveaway. This means not enough water. only things it can be is the ice maker is not turning on the water valve long enough or the water valve is restricted or the water valve has been leaking and has frozen the fill tube. and is only leting out a small amount of water in this case as well you will still need a new water valve.

start with water valve and if that does not solve the problem you will need to replace the ice maker.

My GE Profile refrig ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why would this happen?


Not enough water is being pumped into the icemaker. The water pressure in the water line coming into the refrigerator may be too low, perhaps due to a blockage somewhere.

Move the refrigerator enough to get behind it. Turn off the water at the small valve which connects the water line from the house plumbing to the tube going into the refrigerator. Get a bucket. Remove the refrigerator water line from the on-off valve (there should be a compresson nut holding it on). Point the incoming water line into the bucket and open the valve. Do you have a good flow of water? If so, either there is a blockage in the tubing within the refrigerator or the water valve at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator is malfunctioning.

Kenmore icemaker


It sounds like the icemaker is making hollow cubes , and the unfrozen water in the cubes , after dumping , freezes and causes the ice shells to stick togather . This is a sign of " not enough water going into the icemaker " . Replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to , on the refrig .

Maytag msd2356ae ice maker will only give me hollow ice any ideas.


Hi,
Hollow ice cubes are most often cause by insufficient water supply. Icemakers fill for about 7.5 seconds, resulting in about 4.75 oz. (140 cc) of water into the ice cube mold. If there s not enough water pressure available at the fridge, cubes may end up hollow and/or the fill could continue to dribble, eventually causing the fill tube to freeze closed.
pls rate my suggestion.........

I have hollow icecubes too, and water from the un frozen icecubes spills in bin and all the other cubes stick together. IS There Not a way to adjust the timer on the icemake to turn slower so they will...


your hollow cubes tells me your ice-mkr is not receiving enough water. first check water supply. does your refrig. have a water filter? also you could have a bad/restricted water valve.

Ice maker makes hollow ice cubs or cubes with


Whats happening is the ice isnt freezing all the way. Try cleaning your condensor's under the frig.In Hotter weather when condensor's get filled with dust it causes the frig to cycle to ofeten. In turn your cubes aren't freezing all the way.
