The ice maker is...

The ice maker is dripping water into the bin creating large chunks of ice. Is this a valve issue?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

1 sec while i write it down.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends what is is, I am a retired plumbing contractor. It is an Amana ACD2234HRQ, 12 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Ice maker cycles, cubes are good, water flow to ref. is fine.
