Ice cubes melting then refreezing in clumps

I'm not having problems with the ice maker generating ice cubes. Instead after the ice cubes drop, they appear to melt somewhat, then refreeze in clumps.

    My issue is similar but the drip tray in the door also fills with water to the point where it overflows onto the floor. Not sure if it is ice melt or if the water supply fails to shut off. Any tips/tricks on troubleshooting the water supply valve?

    As far as the ice maker melting, It really isnt. It is just a poor design. If you open the left door to fast while ice is trying to freeze in the icemaker tray and the water isnt frozen yet when you open the door to fast some sloshes out and spills in your ice bucket making it freeze together in a big clump. This is a hassle but you just have to break it up and all is good. It has become such an issue we try to keep all the things we use most often on the right and not open the left door very much at all. Which is a hassle. When we do open the left door we do it slowly trying to not spill ice that might be being made in the ice tray.

The ice being produced is large clumps that melt and refreeze and stop the auger from turning. I have to use a blowdryer to melt the ice just to remove the bin. Any suggestions?

Can you provide a model number of the refrigerator? Is the water filling too high in the ice maker? Are the top of the ice cubes connected together before the ice drops into the ice bin?

Sometimes ice melts in ice maker. Water drips down and refreezes.

There is a heater built into the ice maker bottom to help release ice cubes from the machine. Under normal conditions the heater only come on when the ice maker starts to run and then jambs against the frozen cubes. When it stalls and jambs against the frozen ice cubes, the heater comes on to melt the cubes enough. I think you have a defective ice maker and the heater is coming on to much or at the wrong time, Since your temps go back to normal with the ice maker turned off, I am almost sure thats your problem.

HI, we have the same problem with ours from time to time. It is a engineering flaw, bad design, the ice cubes are kept in the refrigerator section, which is about 38-40 degrees. So the ice cubes melt, the only way to keep it clear is to use ice cubes every day and not let then thaw and freeze.

Melting/refreezing ice in the ice makes

If the ice is the only item that appears to be melting or defrosting. I would believe the most possible issue. The icemaker is leaking intermittantly into the bin and freezing the cubes inplace.

Symptoms: Ice cubes melt, drip then refreeze causing

are you having any cooling problems? take a look at your ice cream, if you have any. does it look like it has melted and refrozen? if so, you have a cooling problem, and that is causing ice to melt, then refreeze. if you have no cooling problems, then you may have a faulty water valve solenoid, or even a faulty icemaker.

Ice cubes made by ice maker become large fused chunks over time.

Ice cubes will deteriorate over time if not used. They shrink due to defrosting of the freezer and will become stale.
Once the ice bin is full, turn the ice maker off until you use the cubes and or dump the cubes every 3 or 4 days and start over.
