Not enough water getting into circulation reservoir so ice cubes were very small and the unit was laboring to make ice.

The standalone icemaker: It wasn't making very much ice and made a grinding noise. I watched the water intake hose and saw that the stream water was weak and didn't fill the reservoir like it should before it cycled off. I replaced the water pump (at the front of the unit). Turn water off to the unit. Turn the unit off. Disconnect the 2 hoses-one plastic and one copper. un-screw the pump from the wall of the ice maker. Disconnect the electric connector. Hook the electric connector back to the new pump unit. screw the bottom plastic hose back on. Attach the unit to the wall with the 2 screws. Then attach the copper hose. Turn water back on. Check for leaks. Turn the unit back on. Using a flashlight make sure the reservoir in the back is filled until the water flows into the overflow drain. Make sure that there is a good strong stream of water from the intake hose into the reservoir. You should be good to go. If you have a lot of lime in your water (we do) then you will have to replace this pump every year to 18 months or so. It seems to get clogged up with lime and just doesn't pump enough water to fill up the reservoir in the time allotted for its cycle.
