    I'm pretty sure a cycling ice maker is something in most freezers that constantly freezes water into ice cubes.

    A cycle is a repeated sequence. "Cycle" is also a short way to say "bicycle", "motorcycle", or "unicycle".

    "Cyclic" is used for anything that repeats a cycle, especially an abstract pattern.

    A cycling ice maker would be a device that puts water in a mold/tray, waits for it to freeze, empties the ice cubes into a bin, and repeats the cycle.
