Ice machine freezes up My ice maker freezes up the ejection tongs which stops it from making more ice. Do I need a new ice maker or what? I checked the valves and they all work, and it makes ice fine after I clean the rotating tongs off for a bit until they start to build up ice again and then freeze to a halt.

Need a faster answer?
Is the ice freezing on the surface of the tongs? You may be pulling in moist air from the outside of the fridge.. check all the door seals to make sure no air is getting in. What is the model number of the unit so I can pull up a diagram?
