I've recently installed a new GE IM6 unit. It has the mechanical off switch which holds the paddle back. They told me that after the ice maker harvested once, they saw water coming out of the door dispenser so they shut the water off. I returned and activated the cycle by turning the ejector arm slightly clockwise. It made it through and filled perfectly (valve shut off like it is supposed to). Now the owners say there's what was described as a sheet of ice coming down the back. One thing that struck me as odd is the ejector arm comes to rest in the 9 o-clock position as you are looking at the head of the unit. I never paid much attention to prior installs to know if this is right but it seems if it makes a complete rotation and stops at 9 o-clock the harvested ice will be sitting on the ejector arm. I checked and there's no way to swap it 180 degrees.
