Hi,

Kind of sounds like it's simply not getting enough water. If you have good water flow to the refrigerator then about the only thing left to do that I can think of is to replace the water inlet valve.

Is this a new install or something that has been working fine up until now?
It's not connected to a Reverse Osmosis Systems by chance? Them things give me more problems.


Thanks for posting.

I'm not sure JW, but I think only the drinking water is filtered by the built in filter on this model.

I can tell that the heads on this icemaker and esspecially on this design refrigerator break quite often.  I have seen where the white plastic gear cam is broken and maker would work entermittently until it fails completely. Pull maker out and look at white gear. There should be a small gap in the center. See if it's broken. See also if the coating is coming off maker. If unit is getting cold enough, it should make ice efficiently. Check that your condenser coils are clean and that box is set at correct setting. If its the maker, p# w10190965 can be used and purchased at 1st source for 34.95. Just simply switch parts over as neccessarly. Good luck and let us know how you make out. O0
