Change the water valve on the back of the machine. the valve is very slowly leaking water up to the icemaker and freezing in the tube eventually blocking all water from going to the icemaker.

I have a Frigidaire side by side frig, model FRS20ZKG. My supply inlet to the ice maker keeps freezing which after 2-3 cycles will not make any more ice because no water can make it to the tray. This...


The supply inlet to the ice maker is connected (via metal coupling) to the radiator-like-coils in the freezer which are actually hot and they keep the line from freezing. If this coupling is not connected close to a heat source, then the supply line can freeze as you are experiencing.

If possible reroute the supply line out of the freezer area

Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

How can I find the water valve in the ice maker? I'm pretty sure it needs to be replaced, the tube that fills the ice maker keeps freezing up.


Pull the ice box from the wall and you will see the water supply line. Follow it to that water valve.

Water is freezing in the supply line for the ice maker


This usually means you have a weeping water valve. The water valve doesn't completely shut down after filling the icemaker. This deposits a staedy flow of water which freezes and accumulates in the tube, eventually blocking it off. You would need to replace the water valve which is located at the rear of the refrigerstor. One othe thing to check would be the water supply to the refrig. If the water dispenser is working fine then that isn't an issue. However, if that is flowing slowly you would need to replace the saddle valve which is tapping into your house water supply.
