on this ice maker , the fill valve part of the cycle is a weak spot
over and over again this comes up
a few years back i installed a brand new ice maker in a fridge and the owner said it was dropping shells , so i removed it and installed a new one
returned the troubled one to the shop and installed it in a fridge in the shop , where it pumped out great cubes for 3 months and then shells again . something to do with the tension on the little fingers on the wheel
I have tried to make adjustments to these fingers but there not as easy as you might think to get right
any more i just don't mess with it , if it's new it goes back . if it's old i sell a new one
I never sell an ice maker without selling a new primary water valve too ! NEVER !
