What answer? DELETED????
Appliance Technician: MRANSWER, Home Appliance Technician replied 6 years ago
I deleted the answer as a lot of time passed since posting it. I do this for payment, and when things are not promptly checked I assume it was not worth it to you, so I delete it.

So what should I look at for my problem?
Appliance Technician: MRANSWER, Home Appliance Technician replied 6 years ago
Icemaker issues like you describe here are always confined to the icemaker. The best thing to do here is replace it as it is a 5 minute job and cheaper than trying to replace only parts of it. I never fix icemakers-only replace. Look on ebay for the best price on one.
