Question about Refrigerators
Check to see if something has caused ice to back up around the mechanism—this can cause the fill tube to freeze, blocking the mechanism.
If the fill tube in the ice maker itself becomes clogged with ice the unit. Locate the fill tube which is right above the cube tray. Use a hair dryer to unclog the tube. If the tube becomes clogged with ice again your dispenser valve is likely not closing between fills and water is dripping into the tube. You will need to replace the valve. To do this, first turn off the water, then remove the sheet metal backing of the unit by taking out any screws. Pull out the inlet hose and remove the dispenser valve to which the hose was attached. Put in a new valve, reattach the hose and backing, turn the water back on and your problems should be over.
The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.
