Adjust ice maker arm

The ice maker in my side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator works great except the ice bucket gets a little too full. Any suggestions of how to bend the arm or add something so that the stop point is lower in the bucket?

Whirlpool model # WRS315SDHZ05

The ice bucket will fill to the top but then the ice cubes will start to gather towards the access door and a few will fall out. They are higher in the front and lower in the back.

My first hack (see second picture) was a make-shift Styrofoam block zipped tied to the arm. I will try a round piece of 3" - 4" diameter Styrofoam, slit to go around the arm and zip tied. Just need to locate the Styrofoam.



First hack, block of Styrofoam.
