Cool Whirlpool side by side Ice Maker ??????
Model Number: ev170nylb00 KD   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Ice maker is putting out ice but at a slow pace but it is spilling water out of the front corner of the ice makers front tray like a 1/4 inch frozen stream. Do I need a hole ice maker or is this an adjustment issue????

Thanks, Jim

Thanks, Jim
Jim,
You can try and adjust the water level, it will work for a while, but you've most likely have a "sticky" water valve and it's allowing the icemaker to slowly overfill, and causing the icicle.
With the white plastic cover removed from the front of the assembly, you should see a white plastic screw slightly protruding from the side of the mechanism. you can adjust the level lower by turning the screw in a clockwise direction 1 or 2 revolutions (3/4 to 1 turn would probably be sufficient).

I take for granted you've already checked for good water supply to the fridge and a clean water filter( if applies).

Good Luck,
