Question about Refrigerators
HI, for some reason the water going into the ice cube tray seems to flow too long at times and this leaves water in the tube leading to the ice cube which then freezes. Any suggestions for correcting this problem? I usually take the ice maker out and remove the accumulated ice and dry it out and re-install it and it works for months but then the tube freezes again and I have to start all over.
Thanks for your help
Sounds as if your water inlet valve is not closing fast enough allowing a small amoutn of water to accummulate in fill tube freezing and eventually freezing solid, would try replacing water inlet valve, or even the water filter if this model is so equipped

The ice tray releases the ice because the mechanism twists the tray during the end of the cycle. Sediment builds up in the ice try over time and the smooth Teflon surface is no longer smooth, and the ice can get a "grip" on the tray. Then when the tray is twisted, a few cubes remain in the tray. When the measured amount of water then flows into the tray on the next cycle, it is too much. It freezes over the top of the tray, and the next time the tray is twisted, no ice falls out. When water is injected after this, it just runs off the top of the tray into the bin, freezing the ice in the bin. Replace the ice tray every 3-4 years with a new ice tray, and the problem disappears.
