Question about U-Line CO2075F-B Echelon Refrigerator Ice Maker Combination
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. I have had warranty work on this unit to prevent water from leaking into the refrigerator. It would seem that these two problems might be related. Has anybody had similar issues? Any tips for resolution would be appreciated.
Icemaker Fill Tube Freezing Make sure the water supply is greater than 20 psi. If too low, the water valve won't seat properly and it'll "weep." Common causes of low pressure are gunked-up saddle tap valves, kinked water supply line, and using a reverse osmosis filter to supply water to the icemaker. Check to see if the black, flexible portion of the fill tube is wrinkled, twisted, or kinked which can cause ice dams that block the fill tube. It turns out that the manufacturer's have been scratching their heads about this, too, and have concluded that the new fill tube air slit design helps prevent this problem.

In case that the ice maker fill tube is blocked with ice (as per your thought), melt the blockage using a hair dryer, but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!!! Also check the water shut-off valve and the water-inlet valve for working properly. Does this problem appears immediately after the water leaking repair ? If so, its look like the water leaking problem was "solved" by blocking the fill tube to the tray !!!

An alternative to the hair dryer is a soldering iron - the small kind for electronics soldering. You probably will have to remove the unit where the ice is made to get a straight shot at the fill tube. Of course, any plastic that you touch for any length of time will melt so be careful.

Inlet line freezing is usually cause by a restriction in the water supply. You can almost always suspect the saddle valve. Most everyone uses the self piercing valve which after being installed for a while will tend to restrict the water supply. The rubber seal will tend to shrink the hole in it, usually caused by overtighten during installation. Closing the valve all the way and reopening it wil cure the problem for a while. Best to replace with a different type valve. Use a squeeze bottle with warm water to thaw the blockage.

2 things you need to check. If you remove the icebucket look for armaflex the goes on the sensor tube from the icemaker to the back wall. If missing call U-line to get the correct one. The second thing you can do is check the icemaker control. Remove the grill, on the base in the right corner you will see a control with a screw. Turn the screw all the way to the right then back it so it will be straight up and down.That will set it cooler

You need a service guy to look at it. It could be water leaking or a simple case that the flap isnt sealing and the ice melts and then freezes the flap open
