I will open this question back up to the other experts. I cannot find any information in my system on this unit. Thanks

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
Ok, nobody is picking up on the question, so I will try to continue on basic knowledge if that is ok. Normally ice cubes freezing together is the icemaker overfilling, the fill tube or fill cup splashing over into the bin, or something of that nature. Look for ice droplets, trails, ect for the water source. If cannot find any, watch the icemaker cycles one time, and look for water to drip during the water fill. One more thing is if the dispenser door flap is leaking air. But this will normally fuse ice toward the front of the ice bin, so I don't think this would be the problem, but information for you at best. The water dispenser problem will be one of a couple things normally. The water tube in the door is frozen, the water reservoir in the fridge is frozen, or the water valve is faulty. If you can find which hinge of the door the water tube enters, there may be a connecter for the water tube there. Disconnect it, and tap on the water dispenser lever. If water comes out, then the tube in the door is frozen. If no water, then the water reservoir in the fridge is frozen, or the valve is faulty. You can test the water tube from the valve in the same manner as the door to see if water comes from it, or not. This will tell you if water comes from the valve or not. If no water, replace valve, if you do get water, then the water reservoir would be the issue. I hope this information helps. If so, please give a great rating. If not, wait for more information from another expert, due to I cannot find any information on this model. thank you, XXXXX XXXXX luck!
