The reason your fill tube to the icemaker is freezing up time and time again is simply the valve, or valves (water valves) that dispense water to the door and icemaker. It most likely always is the icemaker side because it is always harvesting ice and it gets used the most. The only way to stop this is to replace the water valves almost always located in the rear of the Refrigerator with the supply line coming off the wall the valves with one or two electric plugs that energize the solinoid type valve when unit calls for water. Tired of getting out the hair dryer and melting the ice that plugs up the fill tube? This is the only solution. Some of the time is because lime, or other deposits in the water will not allow the plunger to rest in the complete closed position. When the valve is energized for the amount of time needed it lifts the plunger allowing water to flow through. Then when it goes back down
to the closed position it has a small gap that causes water to seep through. There you have it! It's fixed! Unplug unit before replacing valves.If you have a double valve system make sure your lines go back to the original spot. Some of them have a 1/4" line with plastic compression fitting for the icemaker and a 3/8" for the water at the door. Some have both 1/4" compression fittings coming out like "Amana" so once again, make sure to get all lines back to the same possition. Free info. from-

Icemaker is not working


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If those cubes freeze and dumps but water does not go into the icemaker , replace the water valve behind the refrig ( piece the water line connects to ) . If it does not dump the cubes , replace the icemaker . Also , check the fill tube ( tube which fills the icemaker ) to make sure it is not frozen up . If so , the water valve is seeping and still needs to be replaced . Check the coils under the refrig for dust , lint , pet hair , etc. The coils have to be clean for the icemaker to be 5 degrees , and work properly .

Tip

ICEMAKER SPLATTERING WATER ALL OVER FREEZER



THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF FREEZER TO ICEMAKER CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Icemaker keeps freezing up after a couple of weeks of using then it becomes clogged with frozen ice int mechanical part of the icemaker


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Icicle are forming around icemaker port inside of


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Icemaker does not fill with water


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to ) . If it doesn't dump after freezing , replace the icemaker . Also check the tube inside which delivers water into the icemaker to be sure it isn't blocked with ice . If it is , replace the water valve . Make sure the coils below fridge are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc..as this will slow ice production .

Icemaker water line freezes


it is probably a faulty water valve that slowly leaks water up to the icemaker and freezing. sometimes it will freeze inside the fill tube and block the water supply completely.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
