My ice maker is very flakey - it makes ice just fine for a while and then starts to slow down and only make ice randomly produces ice. The ice tray is full of water and it is solid. It decided to quit once so I put a new water filer in. Any ideas?
First thing to check for is a clogged/lint/pet hair full in the condenser which is located on the bottom of your refrigerator behind the front bottom kickplate grill. Just open both refrigerator and freezer doors, then pull that kickplate grill off, PULL HARD it just unsnaps.
Then get a vacuum cleaner to clean your condenser. A clogged condenser causes fluctuations in the freezer temp. thus affecting ice maker production.
Let us know what you find. If after doing that, your still having the same problem its likely the ice maker is malfunctioning and you'll need a new one.
