You may need to balance the distribution of cold air between the freezer and refrigerator section.
The temperature setting influences both and there is normally a control that lets you divide the cooling between the two compartments.
If you don't have one, get an inexpensive (<$5 US) refrigerator thermometer, normally a simple dial-type, and monitor your refrigerator temperature (maybe somewhere in the middle) overnight when not often opened, set the main control to get the temperature between 40-45 degrees F.
Then check the freezer temp.; it should be <10 degrees F (0 is better), then swap back to the fridge to correct the main setting.
Go back and forth until you have both compartments close to the mentioned ranges.

How do I stop my ice maker water filler hose from freezing - which stops water from filling the tray?


This problem is caused by a defective water control valve that does not stop leaking water like a dripping faucet. This causes water to freeze in the water fill tube thus blocking fill of ice tray. Replace water control valve.

Hi Jan, the problem is a bad ice maker water valve. Pull the refrigerator out and look for the plastic water line that's going to the tube that's freezing. Follow that tube to the faulty water valve. The problem is, its leaking water slowly to the ice maker and it freezes up . Easy fix : Good luck

Ice maker fill tube freezing


There is a possibility that the water valve isn't closing completely leaving just enough space for a drop or two of water to make its way and freeze in the tube, but more than likely the fill tube is a plastic one and little divots have formed retaining water and freezing up. These divots may not even be visible to the ***** eye. A good solution is to switch to a rubber fill tube which is less likely to have this problem.

Ice cube tray does not fill up water feeding tube is frozen.


The problem you are having is caused by water leaking past the=> MJX42111401 Water Inlet Valve Change the MJX42111401 Water Inlet Valve and this will solve the water freezing between ice harvest. On most refrigerators this part can be found on the back of refrigerator and near floor, Let me know if you have other questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water line in freezer for ice maker keeps freezing


I have had this happen to me before. What happens is the water fill valve
does not completely close and the tube will freeze shut as a small ammount of water will continuosly dribble into the tube when the valve shuts off causing the tube to freeze solid. I tried to clean the valve but that did not work so I replaced it and that ended the problem. A new valve is not expensive.

Ice maker problem


Clear the Ice tray by pressing the button under the ice maker. The problem is that the ice is in the first couple of slots is not dumping and the tray tries to fill again and over flows. I pressed the button and cleared the tray of ice (This will tilt the tray and twist it to empty it) that was re-frozen several times without dumping. My ice maker works perfectly after I did the above. I think the problem arises if the door did not close completely. I stopped hanging the dish cloth on the door and on my LG Dish wisher. I hope this helps

Water freezes before getting to ice tray


sounds as if your water inlet valve is not closing fast enough allowing a small amoutn of water to accummulate in fill tube freezing and eventually freezing solid, would try replacing water inlet valve, or even the water filter if this model is so equipped

The tube freezes over where water comes in to fill the ice tray


You may have a related problem. If the freezer compartment isn't sealing off it will have excess moisture inside eventually making excess ice build up on the water inlet tube on the ice maker. Otherwise the water inlet valve is not closing completely and a little bit of water is building up and freezing.
