Ice maker makes large chunks of ice instead of individual cubes

Appliance: Model SAMSUNG PART NUMBER: DA63-02183A My Repair & Advice

My 3 yr old ice maker had two pieces fall out (clear plastic clip & white foam piece) and the white wire with with a sensor attached to it is hanging down about 6 inches. I ordered and replaced the plastic clip so the sensor & foam piece is firmly attached to the ice cube tray. This clip has broken a few times (probably from the sliding drawer in the freezer yanking on the sensor wire.) I did a search and found the following step by step tutorial on how to fix it). I ordered 3 clips so I have a few extras next time it breaks. This tutorial helped me diagnose & fix the problem. Saved me a bundle not having to call a repairman. http://www.how-to-diy.org/oQxozFiXGPUMlo/How-to-Fix-a-Samsung-Refrigerator-Ice-Maker-Large-ice-chunks-not-breaking-apart-(Read-description).html
