Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Ice production is controlled by the ice maker’s ON/OFF power switch. To gain access to the ice maker, pull the ice cream shelf out. Press the switch to the “O” position to turn it Off and press it to the “I” position to turn it On. The ice maker also has a built-in wire signal arm, which automatically stops ice production when the ice bin is full. DO NOT use this signal arm to manually stop the ice maker. The arm is raised by the ice as it fills up in the bin it does take a lot of ice in the bin to raise the arm enough to stop ice production so if you are satisfied with the amount of ice in the bin just turn the ice maker off using the on/off button.

I’ve done all that. When ice tray is full the dispersment Shute jams and I have to monitor the mount of ice myself, turning icemake on and off.
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,

ok well there is no way to set the bar it just hangs there and when the ice pushes up high enough it shuts off the ice maker, if its raising high and not shutting off the ice maker then the ice maker unit itself needs to be replaced, but the way its designed the bin does have to be really really full to shut it off with the arm so if the bin being full is causing the ice chute to jam then something else is going on with the auger or the chute itself because the bin being full should not have any effect on that .
