Ice is clumping in the bin. I think the picture will describe the issue better than me trying to explain it.

Thanks,

The first thing you may want to do is measure the temperature inside the freezer using a special refrigerator thermometer. Post the results.

Thanks for helping out Gene! I picked up a thermostat today and it isrunning at 30. I will check it throughout the day to see if it rises.

I have been checking the temp at different times during the day and it has been staying at 0. What should I do next?

Thanks,

RRR

I would replace the water valve. There may be dirt in the valve which will keep it from completely closing

So, if I got it right, the first temperature test inside the freezer was about 30F? Then, later, it was about 0F?

If this is correct, what was with the ice cubes while the temperature reading was zero?

I believe I may have misread the first reading. From what I can tell when it is 0 degrees the ice is intermittently good and bad. When I check and catch a ice cycle sometimes it's good sometimes it's like the first picture. Other times I just find the large clumps in the bin. I just caught an ice cycle that was good. I attached a picture (somewhat out of focus). I watched them fall into the bin with no issues. I did have to remove a clump out of the way so the arm could move back up to make the ice drop.

There is a water level adjustment screw on the right side of the ice maker control module. Very likely you have to remove the ice maker head cover to gain the access to it. Turn the screw CW for about 180. It should decrease amount of water coming into the ice maker.

If it would not fix the problem, replace the water inlet valve on the back of the refrigerator.

- The water inlet valve Part number: W10408179

Part number: W10408179

Gene I made the adjustment and it helped but didn't correct the issue so I am ordering the part today. I will let you know how it goes. Thanks for all of your help so far.

Thanks,

RRR

Watch a harvest cycle and wait until it fills. When it fills make sure it's not dripping from the back of the ice maker itself. If it drips from the back of the ice maker remove the I/M and check the coating on the mold. If it's flaking or peeling off it may need a new ice maker, the peeling coating will actually cause water to "wick" out of the Ice maker. I see this misdiagnosed for a water valve more often than not.

Hope this helps.
