Question about Refrigerators
Is there a filter, and did you replace that? Here's what one person said about this problem on a website:
Since you replaced the valve, I'm wondering if it's leaking a bit.
Here's some other reported ideas:
Sorry I couldn't find more specific information, but we need the make and model number to do that.
You need to google your model number and see if there are any specific articles relating to this. Sometimes, manufacturers recall units, so check their website and also recall websites:

The reason this happens is either because the setting on the freezer is not at the manufacturers recommended and is too cold.
The other reason is because the tube that runs from the rear of the freezer to the ice maker is made of Teflon. like a frypan that gets old the water does not run correctly into the tray and droplets form and freeze thus a blockage occurs.\
If your temp is set at manufacturers recommended setting replace the fill tube. It should be quiet east to pull it out from the back and replace.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Over time the inlet valve becomes partially
plugged, reducing the outlet pressure and reducing the water flow rate into the
icemaker. If the flow rate is too low then the water will gradually freeze in
the tube until it becomes blocked entirely. Many times low water pressure will
cause this. You can perform a taste. Get a piece of tubing and attach it to the
inlet valve. Run this piece to a container and see if you get any water while
the power is off to the valve. You might have a valve that is not shutting
completely off. Hard water might cause this. Killing the power to the valve
will make the valve inoperable. Actually the purpose of killing the power is to
see if the valve is allowing water to bypass even when there is no signal from
the switch to do so.Bad inlet valve could be the possibility. So it needs to be
ordered and replaced because the valve isn't sealing off properly and it's
causing the water to trickle through or drip through the fill tube sometimes,
then it freezes before it reaches the icemaker and over time it will clog up
the fill tube completely.
