My amana SQD26VW ice maker drips from both corners and causes

Resolved Question:

My amana SQD26VW ice maker drips from both corners and causes all of my ice to stick together in large chunks. Do I need a new ice maker? How do I unhook the current one. I don't see any screws or any thing to disconnect it. Should I look harder or is there a trick or do I have to call someone to come out.

sounds more like your water valve is sticiking open just a bit and letting a drip into your ice maker. sometimes these valves dont close tightly and lets water trickle through.,I'll check the valve for you, thanks Bryan
