Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Ice maker - Ice cubes are connected together instead of one at a time. Can this be easily fixed?


Answers :

Good day,
\015\012By design, the cubes are fused together when they form. The water enters only the rear of the ice maker when it is filling, and flows forward one cavity at a time, thus leaving a small section connecting the cubes together.
\015\012In theory, the force of ejecting the cubes, and falling into the bucket causes them to break apart.
\015\012It's not perfect, but usually works most of the time.
\015\012If the machine or ice maker is not level, it is possible some of the wells get more water than others, which could cause the cubes in one part to be too large and create the problem.
\015\012The other possibility, is the water valve in the bottom back of the machine to not close promptly during the fill cycle causing the well to fill too high causing your issue.
\015\012
\015\012A very remote possibility usually associated with homes that use well water, is the water pressure is too high, adding too much water per cycle.
\015\012
\015\012Unlike a cloths washer, the ice maker uses a simple timed fill method which is normally 7 seconds.
\015\012 An outside possibility exists that it could be an internal problem with the ice maker itself, but I've never seen that as an issue.

For some time now the ice maker instead of making individual cubes of ice is making the ice in sheets. It looks like when the water is filled into the ice maker tray it is over filling and making a sheet of ice instead of ice cubes. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Bryan

I have a french door refrig with two ice makers. I cubes seem to be wet in door when crushing ice. Also in bottom ice maker the cubes are stuck together in tray in one clump. I lowered temp to -4 but it did not help. Bought in Lowes july 2010.


You need to check the door seal. If you place a $bill in the door it should have resistance all the way around as you pull the bill through. It may just be that the doors need adjustment.. If you are able to maintain -4, the ice maker heaters may no ... Samsung Refrigerators

Kenmore refrigerator 253.53612300 ice maker works & dispenses cubed ice, but the ice crusher doesn't work. Was working fine one day, next morning , nothing. It doesn't make any noise, if I choose crushed ice it just dispenses cubed. I haven't tried anything yet, we had alot of relatives staying with us for my son's wedding so I thought maybe a switch got burnt out with the use.

My Subzero 650/S2 refrigerator ice maker stopped making ice cubes and instead sends a measured amount of water into the tray which then freezes. I called an appliance repair but he spent no more than two minutes and announced that I needed a new ice maker. I am a little suspicious. Can you advise on some possible causes and DIY type attempts to see if I can fix it myself?

The ice-maker shutoff arm in my LG LFX29560 doesn't move to the position to shut off making ice. It looks like ice falls on TOP of it, instead of pushing it up. I've checked it at different stages, and at one stage, the ice stacks up between the horizontal part of the arm and the vertical ice cube storage holder. Then, the next batch of ice falls on top. Actually, I'm not exactly sure that's the cause, but that's what it seems like to me.


Hi.The solenoid that operates the ice dispenser is probably shorted. For that reason the dispenser does not stop making ice. Before calling LG to get part or repair, try defrosting the icemaker.This can be done disconnecting power f ... Refrigerators

The arm should move to the up position just before dumping the next batch of ice thus preventing ice from piling up on the arm. After the ice is dumped the arm goes back down. Once the ice bin if full the arm cannot go down and this shuts the product ... LG LSC26905TT Side by Side Refrigerator

The ice maker on my subzero 650 makes ice. But also seems to drip water that freezes all the ice together and build up frozen water. I suspect the water shut off is a problem. Or whatever monitors full ice cube tray before ice is dumped. Any advice to fix?


The water valve is under the freezer (near the left front wheel). I have exactly the same problem - I just leveled my unit better (I assumed that was the cause), but it still does it so now I guess it must either be some solenoid valve malfunction ... Sub-Zero 650 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

I just changed the ice maker on my jenn aire ref. JCD2289AES. The old one was leaking everywhere and making a big frozen block of ice . It seemed very simple but, it the cube tray is not filling with water yet . There was only a quick connect wire assembly and the unit clips right back in .

I can hear the water turning on and attempting to come to the ice maker, but it is not coming through the tubes to produce ice. Is there a siimple fix for this ice maker. Could the ice in the tubes be freezing up which does not allow new water to come through? How do I fix it? Just 5 years ago, I had a defective

I have a problem with the ice maker on my Siemens KA60NA40 side by side fridge freezer. I went on holiday and did not isolate the ice maker. On my return I operated the unit and some ice was discharged but I found a small plastic cube with holes that are blanked off at the base. There is evidence of the part breaking/shearing off. It is about 12mm cubed with a taper on one edge. I then withdrew the ice box and found it frozen up with ice cubes and water. I cleaned the unit and defrosted the free

I fixed two tonight and one fixed the crush/cube problem but my ice is not being made. The two wire colors are green with a yellow line and the other was white with a red line. One problem was fixed but I am not sure which wire was responsible.
