I have a Frigidaire with an SA8868 ice maker.  The ice maker makes ice but it has a slow drip that makes the ice one big ice glob (great for ice sculpting, but I do not have that talent).  :shock:

I noticed there is a screw (that is what got me in trouble in the first place), where I can adjust...could this fix my drip or do I need a new ice maker and some penacylin?? :P

Thanks all and Happy New Year!!

Hello, my drippy friend. The problem you describe is caused by the icemaker's water inlet solenoid valve failing to close all the way. The corrective action is to replace the valve with a new one, which you can conveniently procure here.

Incidentally, I would venture to guess that the beer from the kegerator in your attached photo would have insufficient carbonation resulting in flat beer, as counter-intuitive as this may seem upon first glance at the ample... dispensers. I offer this as someone who does not consume beer at all, since I am a devout Muslim. I will, however, occasionally participate in a celebratory toast with the Afghani national drink: cheap vodka and semen of yak.

The screw you are refering to adjusts the size of the cubes, set it to mid-position. Is the ice tray over-filling or can you see water dripping from the icemaker inlet spout? Is there an icicle forming from the spout? most likely need to replace the water inlet valve, located behind the frige near the bottom.
