Question about Whirlpool ED2FHSS Side by Side Refrigerator
My ice maker has begun to freeze up and stops making ice. Looks like the water is freezing in the supply line and therefore not filling the tray. It is also starting to freeze things inside of frig. Have turned it down to 1.5 out of 9. Use to have it set at 4 or 5. I bought and installed a new ice maker. Thought it was cheaper than a service call. ($80) But same problem was evident immediately. Ice maker model is a IC6. Frig is about 12 yrs old. My ice maker stopped making cubes...just had frozen water blocking everything....took it out and now 2 days later can't open the freezer door....I have the ice make in the up position (do not make ice).....turned the temperature down but still cannot open the door. The model number is difficult for me to read but the one below is as close as I can get it
The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.

SOURCE: Ice maker freezing up
If it is only the fill tube that is freezing up, or getting full of ice, than your water valve is leaking (letting drops of water thru to your ice maker and filling the icemaker fill tube up and freezing). If this is the case, replace the dual water valve (part # 1071263) located in the back of the refrigerator, just follow the water line from your wall into the refrigerator. Make sure you turn off the water to the refrigerator and also unplug it. The dual water valve is the one that has two water lines, one going to the icemaker and one going to the water dispenser. On this model, I think you only have one water valve. On some you have two, the primary water valve and a secondary water valve (the dual valve). If this is your case, I would highly recommend you replace both. As far as the Refrigerator side freezing things up, I think that is a whole different issue. Please post back.
