Question about Refrigerators
Hi, sometimes the frozen chunk of ice in the back of your ice tub is caused
by the tub being overfilled. The ice cubes pile up so high that they
come in contact with the defrost heating element in the bottom of the
ice maker. This melts the already formed cubes and form a blob of ice
in the rear of the tub.
If the "icicle" is forming even when the tub is relatively empty, then it is probably a leaking solenoid valve. This is an electric water valve that opens and closes according to demand. Like any valve, it has seats that eventually leak, especially in areas with hard water. This will need to be replaced. Water filters go a long way in increases the useful life span of the valve and will also improve the ice quality.
