Icemaker water line is frozen...i will remove everything and open the freezer door to let it warm up. When I chill the freezer again do I keep the icemaker arm up until the freezer is cold and then lower...

Dont leave freezer door open it will cause alot of problems. The ice maker will not call for water until the temp in freezer is cold enough. Remove the ice jam. If you remove from back of freezer it helps alot. Pull out of the back wall and remove ice be sure to put it back the way it was. Any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

My refrigerator isnt getting as cold as it should and its starting to leak

it sounds like a you have a clogged drain in the freezer. You will have to remove the screws from the back wall of the freezer....down at the bottom after removing the back wall you will probably find alot of ice. you will have to chip the ice out of the bottom and pour some hot water on it until you get the drain cleared....that should solve the problem....if not just post back and i will try to help you further on the problem....thank you

Ice maker is making ice but leaking alot of water under the fridge and in the freezer. What can I do to shut if off until I repair the ice maker?

pull our your frig. and follow the water line coming into it. the other end should have a valve on it in the floor or the wall. turn off the valve and that will stop any water from coming to your frig for water or ice making.

Replace the defrost heater thermostat in back of freezer wall.You can reach it from the open front freezer area.Just take loose the back wall plate(s).Youll see it (maybe under alot of ice)clipped onto heater coil.You should be ok now. Please leave a rating!!

do you notice alot of ice builup on the freezer back wall? if so you need to defrost it and more than likely replace the defrost terminator. make sure you remove the back panel and use boiling hot water to remove the ice( i normally use a coffee cup) part # 10442407 ONLY USE VIKING PARTS) others may tell you to use whirlpool or some other but DON'T
