PE,

Hollow cubes are usually due to :

Low water pressure to the ice maker, it maybe time to replace the filter ?

It could also be due to a frezzer temperature thats too low, and flash freezing the exterior of the cubes, your freezer air temperature should be 3 to 5 dgrs. and have plenty of room for air circulation.

There are other mechanical possibilities, intermittent thermostat or heater in the ice maker. intermittent fill valve.

Try the filter and the freezer temperature first, that's where you usually find the problem.
