What causes them to freeze like that? The icemaker in my new fridge doesn't ever freeze up.
Calcium built up on the icemakers body mold is fairly common for allowing the cubes to get stuck, over filling with water, under filling and a too small cube may fall backwards and get jammed.
If the fill spout intermittantly gets frozen, poor or slow fills can cause that or a fill valve weeping in some water all of the time.
