I'm sorry you are having this problem. However, I'm not sure what you mean by the icemaker is freezing up. If it's overfilling and ice is sticking together or if the icemaker is just not harvesting, the ice, in the mold.

If it's overfilling, the problem will be with the icemaker itself or the water valve. This icemaker regulates the water fill with a thermistor and if it fails, the icemaker will need to be replaced.

If the icemaker is not harvesting the ice, it could be due to the temperature in the freezer, if it’s not cold enough. The temperature should be between zero and five degrees. If it gets above 5 degrees the icemaker will slow down and above 10 degrees, the icemaker may not cycle at all. To check the temperature, place a thermometer between some packages. Air temperature is


a good check. If the temperature is ok, the most likely problem will be with the icemaker # WR30X10093 itself. If you would like more assistance, additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
