Water into ice hopper, making block of ice...........looking at the " flex-tray" tray not returning to 'flat'....stays kinda twisted, left front of tray stays low, water when filling just runs out..........Read somewhere there is a "splash guard" or something or other......Did not see any "forced defrost" button...Just a thermister? A set of wires at the bottom of tray.......... Found tray as a replacement, is tray replaced a lot on these fine, highly engineered piece of equipment ice makers??????.....

Changes were made to the ICEMAKER design to eliminate the symptoms you've described.

Although the part number for the "new" ICEMAKER is the same as the original---it's different. All original (flawed) icemakers were purged from inventory and destroyed.

Replacement ICEMAKER number: 5988JA1005D

To initiate a TEST CYCLE:

Press the TEST button located at the bottom of the icemaker head---for half-a-second.

This will induce a "forced harvest".

Yes---icemakers (overall these days) are designed for lower energy consumption as well as lower production cost.

Certainly not the same material that we're accustomed to seeing in refrigerators---not that many years ago :)
