I have had this Roper (whirlpool) fridge for about 7 years with this icemaker installed. Lately a large accumulation of ice has been forming in the back of the ice tray. Then I noticed there was ice forming behind the back panel of the freezer and pushing it out. I took it all apart today and cleaned all the ice from around the coil in the back and inspected the fill tube for damage that would cause a drip. I found nothing but ice.... anyone ever had this problem before? What was the solution? Thanks in advance!
Re: Ice Maker problem 106-626636, too much water!?
Sears Had a couple of problems with this. They have a plastic tube they put on you ice make line that goes to the fill tray about 3 in long . You can make you own its just pvc pipe. The other thing is that the drain hole get froze over time and has you looking all over for a leak. The fix for this is a small strip of aluminum about 1/4 wide and 3 and a 1/2 long (pop can) rap it around the defrost coil 1 time and put about 2 in. down the drain hole. Now it can never freeze shut again. If you wan to buy the part its called a heat probe ( peace of tin) its about $20.00

has began to seep water at the valve and out through the ice maker fill tube and down into the ice bucket. About all you can do when this happens is replace the above W10408179 Dual Water Inlet Valve. I will be here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze How to test the valve can also be found HERE

The tray slides out, take it out and dump it, clean it and replace it every year. This is where the coils drip to when the humidity is high or it is working hard to keep cool, like if you just had a party and everyone was in the fridge.
I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.
hi debie normaly the life of these ice maker range from 3 to 4 years then the wtr hardness eats them up and the mold start leaking wtr but if is a fairly new model the you have a faulty wtr vale that is not closing sending wtr all the time to the ice maker repl the ice maker is you see is peeling of the texture inside if it is ok repl the valve
There should be a tube that brings water to your icemaker from the back of the fridge into the icemaker. This tube is frozen with water, or the inlet where this tube feed the icemaker tray is frozen. The result is that water cannot go to the ice maker, and instead, goes over the top of the inlet area.
Verify that this is indeed what is going on.
The fix is to remove the blockage/buildup of ice at the inlet. You may have to detach the icemaker to get to it. Be carefull with electricity! Also be carefull as plastic can break under stress!
The tube may be frozen to the inlet, channel locks can be used to gently twist the tube to break it free.
