You have the Module type i/m. You'll need to try and "catch" it acting up. Usually, on that i/m the module can go bad and produce long(double) fill times. Average fill time is a few seconds. If you notice a longer than normal fill time, I'd replace the I/M. Average fill is about 4-5 oz.:) wrench

All the ice makers have the same mold volume, fill time is between 7 and nine seconds, that's what I do when I manually fill.
