This past week the icemaker started having large ice chunk formations in the ice bin. There is a foam piece that clips on to the bottom side of the ice tray that keeps coming off. It has wires going into something that sits in the middle of the foam block. Does this sound like a water valve problem or ice maker . I also changed the water filter so it is new .
ANSWER Hello Raptor,
It sounds as if though you would need to get a new icemaker 243297606. The wire coming off the bottom of the icemaker is the thermistor wire. If it is hanging down and will not stay in place, then it will cycle too fast causing ice blocks in the ice bin.
