Im an authorized U-Line servicer and many of the ice molds were drilled near the front to allow excess water to drain from it. (yeah, I know... why not just adjust the dater valve timing?)
So the first thing is to find out if theres been a hol drilled in the mold. It will be easy to spot, generally just roughly drilled into the side.

What to do now? Is there a replacement for this part or does the entire ice maker need to be replaced with an updated ice maker.
Thanks for the help, we are moving in the right direction, or so it appears.

That is exactly the course of action I take, IN SPITE of what the factory has done. The Icemaker has to be taken down or at least accessed to a point where smoothing the epoxy on the Ice side of the mold is possible where impeding the ejection of ice is not a factor.
When I asked the factory why they were drilling holes in the molds, they said it was to prevent overfilling of the icemold. Hey, maybe Im wrong here, but... isn't that what the ice thickness adjustment screw is for???
Anyway they said that some of the molds were drilled a bit too low in the mold and ergo the water of course seeps into the bucket, fills the voids, turning it into an ice block
For those of you that havent yet seen this, its quite remarkable. Someone with a 1/4 inch drill goes right into the white plastic guard and thru the mold, not even dressing out the hole. Looks like something your kid might do.
Since im an authorized servicer, I remain annoymous on this one.
Oh great samuri, protect me from those that would pull me from thier roles!

I have the same problem.
The icemaker leaks water from the bottom of the unit. I have adjusted the fill level and verified that the tray is not overflowing, but the water seems to still come through the unit and is leaking into the ice bin creating a large clump of ice.
My main question is how to remove the icemaker in order to repair or replace it. It has the normal two screws that you remove like most other icemakers. But after you remove those screws the unit is still attached to the wall of the ice compartment. There must be some hidden screws. How do you get to them? Does anybody have a parts diagram with part numbers showing how the icemaker is attached to the wall of the refrigerator or some disassembly instructions?
Thanks for your help.
