Assuming you have active water supply to unit, either water valve or ice maker is bad. If Ice Maker is sending power to valve during Ice cycle, then valve is bad. If no power to valve during Ice cycle, then ice maker is bad.

Does your unit have the defrost timer inside or is it under the kickplate?

The reason the fill tube is freezing is because the tube that connects to it and connects to the water inlet valve is seeping water slowly. It's just enough water to trickle into that tube at the top and since its so cold that little trickle freezes,then the next trickle freezes and so on and so on. After enough small drops of water freeze the entire tube is frozen. To stop that replace the water inlet valve the small diameter tube connects to. The part number for that is 67003753 you could purchase it at your local applianve parts store. Or online at

The first think you need to check is the temperature control thermostat at the parts diagram of your fridge. This is like a switch on off with contacts that they usualy stuck on or off. You can turn the knob all the way to max and back to min and again to max to see if it makes any difference. Second is to reach of the back of the control remove the power from fridge first since these are power wires and reach for the two wires on the thermostat and make a wire jump which mean connect them together so the compressor should run if it actualy run then replace the thermostst control.
If after you have the jumper on and the compressor still not running you should go and replace the overload relay

If refrigerator is not cooling properly it can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer is bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.
1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
