Hi all,

Been having trouble with this ice maker for a while. Unit is about 5 years old. I change water filter regularly. Main circuit board for frig has been replaced. Ice maker makes ice and it drops into the bin. Water somehow seems to freeze around the lower outside of the ice bin and under the ice bin over the dispensing hole. Seal around door into ice maker area seems intact. Mechanical dispensing door between ice make chute and inside bin seems intact. Seems like it is opening and closing normally. Sometimes, ice cubes inside the bin get frozen together into a big chunk but not all of them. The malformed ice typically seems to occur on the outside of the bin towards the bottom, underneath the ice bin and on the inside of the chute above the ice maker mechanical door that opens when you activate the dispenser.
Any thoughts on what could be the issue?
