The ice maker is the most needed part of our kitchen. It consists of an ice tray and a piston. The ice maker collects the water, and then it is poured over the tray.

Water gets frozen slowly. When the ice is completely frozen, the cylindrical piston will drop down all the ice.

The flex tray ice maker comes in a feeler arm or IR sensor. The IR sensor will deliver the sense that ice is ready. So you can dump it.

The feeler arm is the wire in the ice maker, which aids in shutting the ice maker. It comes with a spring at the head of the ice maker.

When the motor gets lifted it produces force to make it move. If the spring gets broken the LG ice maker tray will not turn.

There is an on/off button on the left side of the ice maker. Check this button.
