On your icemaker drawing http://cdn.appliancepartspros.com/images/diagrams/dcache/115852_4.gif item #24 is the plastic side fingers. There's a grove aout where the #24 arrow is pointing that was filled with a flexible but sticky goo that got out of the groove and seemed to be part of the problem of ice cubes not being dispensed properly and jamming. Do you have a replacement?
The flexible material is allumilastic cement and is used for transfer of cold and heat to the thermostat and would not cause the cubes to jam. In a lot of cases the fingers themselves have warped and are catching causing it to hang up. Also check the large gear on the motor module for the pins being broken as this can cause the ice to not eject properly. Look for cubes that are too small or hollow as well.
Where and how is this product used? Alumilastic Cement Part Number 4317852?
Answer Hi Tim. Alumilastic cement is a food biodegradable cement mixed with aluminum particles. It is used in the control module (head) of Ice makers. Where the bi-metal thermostat is attached to the back of the mount assembly. It is used in between the "sensor" of the bi-metal and the mount face itself, to help transfer the sensing temperatures to the bi- metal more accurately. This part # is 4317852. Thank you.
