Ice cubes clumping


I recently bought a Frigidaire gallery with an ice maker(freezer on top) The ice cubes are forming a large connected mound in the bin. A big clump of ice cubes frozen together. They break apart if you shake the bin, but i know its not supposed to work this way. Its such a pain to contact customer service so I thought I'd ask here. The freezer temp inside is about 10 degrees. Is that not cold enough?

Thanks

Freezer tempo should be zero degrees. Ice when it gets old will clump. Just remove and let new ice drop

My fridge is set at 2 degrees
Ice cubes still clump every now & then
Not that often, a casualty of the auto-defrost these days

Also make sure the fridge is exactly level. If it isn't you'll get some spill over from the ice machine that will also clump cubes together.
