Hello, this is Dave. Sorry you are having problems. What you are seeing means the icemaker is jammed. First look to see if there is an ice cube or other ice that is keeping the white fingers on the "rake" from turning all the way around. Most times that is what you will find. If that is clear you will need the icemaker. Let me know what you find.
