I always use a hair dryer just dont melt anything by getting too close. if the water line is freezing, most likely the valve that lets the water in is leaking thru just a little. this very small trickle is moving slowly enough that it has time to freeze. i would replace the valve. if it happens again you will have to put a water filter in the line because gunk in the water is making it stick part way open.

Wont make ice and frozen water running down door


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Ice makere is not making ice


Several Solutions.

Icemaker filler tube inside the refrigerator frozen. Thaw out with hair dryer. Shut off water, disconnect water inlet line to the ice maker. Insert a flexable item - I used a zip tie through the inlet linlet fitting to make sure the tube was clear. Re-connect the line and you should have ice soon.

2nd Solution, replace the water inlet valve to the refrig. at bottom back right of refrigerator. Easy To Do.

We have a Maytag MSD2754ARA refrigerator and heard water leaking under it last night. We checked and it is coming from the line connected to the icemaker. The line inside is frozen solid. I have read that...


You'll need to first defrost/thaw the freezer and the water line in order to get water flowing again. This can take some time, so you might want to shut off the ice maker by lifting the ice maker bin arm, which will stop it from cycling/calling for more ice to be made.

You can try to thaw the line by using a household hair dryer, but unless you have only a small area of the water line frozen, it could take some time. That is why it is best to empty the fridge/freezer and keep the doors open and the unit off to allow for a complete defrosting of the unit. Have towels, sponges and buckets handy to get all the water.

It sounds like it could just be the frozen water line, but until you thaw it out, you can't really determine if that's all it is.

Refrigerator not making ice


Make sure the water line is clear and not kinked somewhere. It's also possible that the water line orifice is frozen inside the freezer at the ice maker area and blocking water flow. You can thaw it out with a hair dryer - point it at the water inlet - be careful
