My ice maker has stopped dumping the ice. Currently the ice cubes are frozen on the teeth of the dump mechanism.
How can I fix this problem?
Let me also say that the cold water is flowing freely when we want a glass of water.

The icemaker is Style 1 where you lower the wire shut-off arm to turn on the switch. When the icemaker dumps a tray of ice, it raises the wire arm as if the bin were full, but the bin is empty. Each time it dumps one tray full of ice, I have to lower the wire shut-off arm again to get another tray full of ice. How can I stop the icemaker from shutting itself off each time it dumps a tray of ice.
Hello, I don't know how it happened, but your cycle function timing gears are out of sync with one another. Possibly, some of the gear teeth are missing off 1 or more gears, too. I'll explain the NORMAL OPERATION and you will have a better understand ...
Ice maker stopped working. Turned it off as there's no way I need a bin full off ice. I also don't use a lot of ice. Ice was "getting old" so I dumped it, cleaned the bin, turned the button on and nothing. The ice tray is full. Something just needs to click to tell it to dump and make more ice. There is nothing obstructing the "arm". The unit is still under warranty.
The freezer temp needs to be around 0 degrees for that "something" to click to tell it to dump and make more ice. Check the freezer temp and adjust if needed. If a thermometer says it's cold enough you may need that warranty you mentioned. ...
Icemaker After my icetray dumps the ice it does not level out when it returns to ice making position so the water shoots out in the freezer and only partially fills tray. Not sure what to do to make the tray level properly.
Thanks for any help.

I have an Ice O Matic. The harvest cycle is controled by a pressure switch. Once suction pressure is low enough and the ice has formed it will dump. The problem is... Once it dumps and goes back to freeze, the suction pressure doesn't rise above 30 psi in order to start again. It countinously tries dumping. Expansion valve and drier has been replaced, but to no avail. Any ideas? PS. I hate Ice O Matics!!

I have a Maytage Wide by side refridgerator, model # MZD2665HES. For the past few weeks the ice maker has not been working properly. It doesn't dump the ice unless we take the bin out and/or put the fill bar up and down. Even then it may be 20 to 30 mins before it will dump ice. The water dispenser work fine. What could be the cause of the ice maker malfunction? Thanks!

I have an RM255BARB quotro fridge that works well, except for the ice-maker. It will make the first tray of ice but will not dump it into the bin. It will dump it and refill if you hit the test button on the bottom side of the ice tray motor. The fridge is cooled enough to make ice; the water supply is flowing and the filter is new.

Banging on the side of the icemaker or refrigerator stops the sound for a few seconds until the arm is through and the ice is dumped. Ice maker is quiet at all the other times.
