Howdy y'all,

Had an issue where the icemaker solenoid was letting water dribble through, creating ice at the entrance to the inlet.

I replaced the whole inlet valve with an OEM unit, cleared the ice, and reassembled the ice maker.

Now, when the ice tray fills, the water sloshes out the left side of the tray. A little bit of ice also seems to form at the tip of the water chute, meaning subsequent fills spray even more water down the left wall of the freezer.

There really isn't a whole lot involved in the fitment of that upper water input, so I'm not sure what I could have gotten wrong there.

The ice tray seems to be a little slanted, even though the fridge itself is level. I can't seem to find any way to level it, as it's uneven on an axis that isn't adjusted when it power-cycles.

Any of y'all seen anything like this? Any suggestions on what to try?

So, after taking it all apart again, I think I found an issue. The ice tray had developed an appreciable curve to it, probably because the way the machine breaks ice out of it (torquing it like you would a manual tray). Over time, this can cause it to deform. I used a rubber band to keep the tray flexed for a few hours, and that seemed to counter-act the deformity, but only for a little.

I'm pretty upset that this part is designed to take that degree of wear but is not individually replaceable.
