Ice cube is getting stuck up hard in ice maker

This problem is not very common in ice makers.This problem mostly occurs when refrigerator gets old.

In the ice maker there is a Teflon coating in the inner side of the ice tray.Where ice gets formed.If this teflon coating gets rubbed off or loose then ice will stuck up hard and not get released.

The other possibility for this problem is heat coils.There is heat coil in the ice maker unit.This coil heats the tray slightly , to get the ice released from its tray while dispensing.But if the heat coils are faulty or got weak then ice will not release.

In any of the case the ice maker assembly has to be replaced.
Replacing ice maker assembly on most of the refrigerator is not very difficult and procedure is near to same.But not exactly same.On some models there is clips holding the parts and on some models there are screws holding parts.Many a times screws are hidden and difficult to see.
