Having ice cubes at the push of a button, is a convenience we get used to and when it's clumping, it can be frustrating. I am providing a link on a similar issue on a Kenmore refrigerator that may be helpful while an expert ressponds to your specific model. Click here: Ice clumping.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your ice dispenser. Ice cubes can get stuck at times if the conditions are just right. If you use a lot of crushed ice, ice shavings can stick in the chute and it can thaw out if the freezer door is left open for some length of time and then will refreeze. If you happen to dispense ice and the condition is just right an ice cube could freeze and stick instantly to the chute. I recommend cleaning out ice shavings periodically to avoid this from happening. Also check the flapper to make sure that it's shutting completely and making a good seal. If the flapper door is not making a good seal, warm moist air will migrate up the chute and cause frost and ice cubes to stick. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
