Question about LG LFX25971ST Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
There is a leak in the ice maker behind the ice bin. The water drips down the wall behind the bin and freezes, forcing me to remove the bin every few days and scrape the ice away. Still makes ice, but is inconvenient. Is this simply a water line I can buy to replace or does the entire ice maker need to be replaced?

Likely so unless you can get the seal ring. However, it first needs to be determined which part causes the leak as they can be many sources

Hello. Yes, that is the correct position for the icemaker feeler arm. The updated icemaker has a longer feeler arm that hangs down a little more (thereby shutting off sooner when the ice piles up not so high).
Your water leak onto your food is from water spilling out of the front left corner of the ice tray during fill. This has also been updated with a plastic lip that keeps the water from sloshing out when filling up.
The photo shows that your ice tray appears to be unlevel and drooping in the front left corner. This happens with flex tray icemakers over time. The icetray does not fully flex back to its level posiiton. I do not feel you need to replace the entire icemaker. Repalcing just the ice tray should fix your issue.
Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Colenoid in the ice dispenser may be clogged or have a small amount of trash in it. Is there a filter on before the fridge (just after the ice maker shutoff)?

Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck

When the ice maker calls for water it pours for about 7 seconds if more will overflow and the problem is in the ice maker board but if pours water for nomore than 7 seconds and still overflow it means that was extra water in the ice maker ,that means that the dual water valve(located in the bottom back of the refrigerator) is leaking and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: ice maker does not make much ice
Hi and welcome to FixYa. When an icemaker still makes ice but in a reduced capacity it is usually the result of other problems.
Either there is ice build up on the evaproator coils due a defrosting problem that you do not see or the evaporator fan motor is not running fast enough.
Here is a way to find out. Unplug the unit and use a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for at least 2 hours. This is a manual external defrosting that will rid the evaproator coils of any ice build up.
Plug the unit back in. Over the next 30 hours check to see if your ice made result is much more than before the manual defrost.
If this improves your ice made result then you probably have a defrosting problem with your unit.
You did not say if the cubes were smaller or not so I have to assume the cubes currently are normal in size and that water flow and ice maker fill timing are fine.
