Icemaker Issue

I'm having a minor, niggling problem with my icemaker. I have a Whirlpool 3 door residential refrigerator with icemaker in bottom freezer.

The ice is being made fine, fast enough. But many cubes are either A) hollow, or B) have liquid water inside some of the hollow parts.

Then, the center of the ice bin is also always frozen up, clumped up, with ice. Not a big spot, just in the center.

When I Google the problem of hollow ice, it says that this problem is usually an issue of a kinked supply hose, and almost never the fault of the actual ice maker. However, I can't find any kinks, and that wouldn't seem to explain the clumps or the unfrozen middles.

Short of unscrewing the two big old lag bolts that CC put in to stabilize this thing at FROG, and pulling it out, anyone have an idea?

do you have an in door water dispenser and does it have good flow? if it does I would think that would eliminate the 'kink' theory. if it has poor flow most probably something is restricting or limiting the flow of water into the unit. there might b a shutoff valve in the small plastic line running to the refrigerator. check it to see that it is fully open. conceivably low water pressure from the water pump if you are using that to supply water to the refrigerator but if this were the case you'd have low pressure / flow to all faucets.

Yes I do, and that's a good thought. It has good flow. So now I'm more stumped.

The shutoff valve is outside behind the tires!! I'm not making that up! LOL I'll check it first chance I get to lie on the ground when the ground is warm and dry! Good idea.
