My ***** frigidaire model PLHS268ZCB1 side by side

refrigerator's ice maker is making ice, but the ice is getting stuck on top of the icemaker. After its made the arm moves and pushes the ice out of the ice mold, but it stays on top, it does not fall into the ice bin. I bang the front end of the ice maker and the ice falls into the ice bin. But if I forget, the ice maker does not cycle and stops making ice until I bang the front end again. Any suggestions

will be greatly appreciated.

Are the icemaker ejector 'paddles' getting stuck in the cubes or the cubes getting stuck onto them??

I really can't tell. I see the ice on top of the mold, when I bang it, the ice falls and the paddles start coming out of the mold in a clockwise fahion.

Are the cubes which result full size or smaller or hollow?

Sometimes cubes may not freezer solidly which can then get hung up on the icemaker's rake/ejector arm. But to determine if that is what was happening in your case, someone would actually have to look into it when the jam occurred. I can't think of anything else which would cause it.
