Ice from ice maker stuck together/sometimes stays in maker
My Admiral top freezer unit makes ice but it is often stuck together in a lump or sometimes frozen into the ice maker, jamming it. I am wondering if this is a defrost timer problem or whether it has to do with the ice maker itself. I would appreciate some advice on how to trouble shoot this.

Thanks in advance.

Please check the model number, the one you posted doesn't come up.

That is the number on the refrigerator. When I look online I see lots of people asking questions about that model number and sometimes I see it referred to as Admiral/Maytag HMG21149. I don't know what else to give you. I did see a reference to some models that had another digit like HMG211490 or 211497 However, mine does not have that. If you like, you could just address this as a general question about the problem rather than this particular model. However, if I need parts I would need to know how to get them.

Thanks, sorry for the confusion.

Simon, I know I didn't really answer your question but that is the answer. Any input at all? Thanks.

The problem you are describing may be caused by fluctuating temperature, leaking water valve or malfunctioning ice maker.

Thanks, I'll read some about those issues and see whether I can distinguish between them.
