I have several of these dead ice makers in here and all have that piece broken, seems to be a common failure...

thanks, pegi, o grand master,

i took the IM apart again last night and the epoxied piece did break apart again.  but the ice had started accumulating in the bottom of the head unit again (0.5"), only after a few weeks :(.  the fridge and IM are both level, what could cause it to come in already?  looks like i'm in for a new IM, but i'm afraid of its same untimely death :poison:.   and this is the preferred IM4!

i was thinking about drilling a drain hole in the bottom of the case of the new one, but it will just put the ice pool into the ice bin!

any ideas?

Only to replace the ice maker, make sure it is level and lower the ice cube size to help keep the water out of the head.  Also put some food grade silicone right between the mold and the head where they meet so the water will not "wick" from the mold to the head, right above the thermostat area, this was in a bulletin from G.E. to stop the water from migrating to the front.

ok, master pegi,

i recall reading such scripture from your honorable site regarding applying silicone to stop the wicking.  will do.

but how does one lower the ice cube size?  i assume by adjusting the water height somehow - but i thought this IM4 was not adjustable? :? maybe i missed that part.

thank you for your kind advice.

Hummm, you may be right, the L.G. is adjustable, the g.e. might not be......

Pegi,

 

My IM-4 has a broken mounting block. Can you sell me one?
