The ice make will make several batches of ice with no problem. The ice forms, slides off onto the cube grate and then melts into cubes. This goes on for several hours and the bin gets about 1/3 full, then it starts making a noise as though it is having trouble pumping . The problem is that now there is a large build up of ice on the freeze plate and water is running over it. I can turn the unit off until the ice melts and then start it back up and it will repeat the above. Something is causing the sheet of ice to not drop and therefore it begins to build. Can anyone help? Thanks, Charlie

Please post your model number. You might try some ice machine cleaner.
