Refrig ice maker inlet freezing

I have a 3 year old GE Side by Side GSS25QGTA Refrigerator. The water inlet line to the ice maker has started freezing as it enters the back of the fridge. Water then begins to run out the water input area at the top (back) of the fridge. I cleared the ice block but the problem returned within 12 hours.

Hi,

Have you checked for any water leakage around the water inlet.


It looks like that the 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.
Please disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip, as it can easily block the the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.
Awaiting reply

GE ice maker


If the freezer is cold enough to freeze food hard, look for a problem in the water line, water inlet solenoid valve, or possible ice build up on the ice maker itself that does not the allow the ice maker to complete it eject cycle and start a new ice making cycle.

You are right. The water inlet valve is leaking a small drip and it freezes when it reaches the cold air in the freezer at the fill tube. Melt the ice in the tube with a hairdryer and replace the water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply connects to the back.

Your inlet valve is malfunctioning. Sometimes when they go bad they either let in to much water or none at all. It is located on the back under accesss panel where your water line connects to your fridge. Rate me if I helped you!

No ice.


Pout about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps but does not refill , replace the water inlet valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to behind the refrig ) . Also check the tube which fills the ice maker as it will freeze up , not letting water go into the ice maker . This is also caused by a bad water valve .
If the ice maker does not dump the water poured into it , replace the ice maker .
Also , check that the coils are clean under the front of the refrig , as this will cause slow ice production and can cause the ice maker not to dump due to too warm of temperature . Ice maker has to be 5 degrees to operate .

Me GE Profile PSC23M Side by side ice maker quit making ice and water was on floor behind refrig. Is a water line frozen or clogged or do I have to replace ice maker?


It sounds like you just have a leak at the back. Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser and watch on the back for where the water may be leaking before it gets up to the ice maker.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

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. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

GE Profile Refrigerator Ice Maker not working


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps the cubes , replace the water inlet valve ( piece on back of refrig that the wall water line connects to ) . If it doesn't dump the cubes , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean under the front at the bottom of refrig , or the squirl cage behind refrig ( model number would have helped ) , of dust , lint , pet hair etc .

It's time to replace the dual water inlet valve (the part the water line connects to). A bit of sediment or other fine object can get in the seat or the material itself can deteriorate and allow a tiny amount of water to pass up to the icemaker.
