If you have ice cubes sticking together in the ice bin then here are some things to check. The water valve and the ice maker. The water valve will drip like a faucet and make them cubes stick together. The ice maker itself can add too much water to the mold and overflow causing ice cubes to stick together. The ice maker could be out of level, causing the water to drip over an edge in a normal 7.5 second fill.

I'm a bit of a dope. Here's the story:

Two months ago a thin plastic bag got caught in the blades that dispense the ice into the tray.

To remove the plastic, I removed the add-in ice maker. When I replaced it, I pushed the plastic tube that feeds the water, just enough so it dripped a couple of drops into the tray.

I fixed the tube and problem solved.

There's some important advice here, but I don't know what it is!  :2funny:
