My ice maker has worked fine since I bought the unit several

Customer Question

My ice maker has worked fine since I bought the unit several years ago. Recently when it makes ice it tends to "throw" it all over the freezer and only a few get into the tray. And it makes a "clicking" noise as it attempts to serve the ice. The unit is LGHN2844MFO
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else important you think the Appliance Technician should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Appliance Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Unfortunately this is a problem with the icemaker itself. The issue is that the heater isn't turning on to thaw the ice out before the rake comes around and pushes on the ice. That causes the ice to fly everywhere and the gears jam up causing it to ratchet and click. The icemaker itself needs to be replaced and it has been re-designed so it comes with instructions. Below is a link to the icemaker for your model number.
