I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

If you remove the front square cover off the icemaker on the right hand side is a small water level adjustment screw you can adjust the amount of fill water that enters the ice maker cavities via that screw counter clock wise is MORE ,clock wise is LESS , only turn the screw no more then 1/2 turn.

If you have any questions just reply back to me
