My ice maker works great. It makes plenty of ice. The problem is that it drops ice all over the inside of the freezer. I have tried to see if the ice bucket is lined up correctly. It looks ok, but is difficult to see when the door is completely closed. I haven't seen any other posts on this, so I'm thinking that it has to be an alignment issue. Has anyone else heard of this?

Hi Greg,

This is something I don't think I've run into before, is the ice container bucket full when it does this?

No. When the bucket gets full, it stops making ice. I swear it's like it's out of alignment, but for the life if me, I can't see why. Everytime it drops ice, at least half of the cubes fall into the freezer.

Ok Greg, then I'm puzzled too, never seen this happen before.

Hopefully another tech or member that has can shed some light on this for us.
