Question about Refrigerators
I have a whirlpool model ED25RQXXW00, side by side. the icemaker water feed keeps freezing in the tube. i have thawed it out and it will work for a day or two and then freeze up again. how do i fix it?
Also the plastic on the dispenser on the door has yellowed badly. can it be replaced?
Check your water valve. Most likely it is leaking by the seal on the icemaker side of the valve so that it is getting a slight trickle of water all the time to the fill tube. This will freeze in the tube much like an icecicle is formed. This is the most common cause. Low water pressure and mineral deposits inside the tube can cause it also, but it usually will take longer than a few days for the problem to reappear.
The dispenser housing and parts on your fridge are replacable and show to still be available.
You can go to sears.com, click on parts, enter your model number, and see parts diagrams and lists for your fridge.
This link should go directly to the parts site.
Post back and let me know about the water valve.

Tips for a great answer:
The water supply line from the water inlet valve enters the rear of the freezer and releases the water into a large diameter fill tube. The fill tubes hangs above the fill cup which funnels the water into the ice mold. If the fill tube and fill cup are improperly aligned, water may spill out instead of going into the mold.
