The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

The problem is not the icemaker. It is the solenoid water fill valve in the back of the unit. You make have to use a hair dryer to defrost the water fill tube just behind the icemaker AFTER you replace the water valve. I just worked on my own and have have done in home appliance repair for over 30 years. If it is making icicles the diaphram in the water valve is shot. It is not a difficult or expensive part IF you order it on the net. Walk in replacement part prices have nearly a 100% mark up.

This could be a failure of the evaporator fan. Also maybe some ice has formed from water dripping from the ice maker and had now produced an icicle which could be hitting the fan blade of the evaporator motor. Remove back cover to the freezer/fan and check the fan operation while it is running.

Water runing down back side of icemaker and forming icicle.


If it is running down the back of the icmeaker then you need to make sure the inlet tube is properly installed into the fill cup on the icemaker. If the tube is in the right place then your icemaker fill level needs to be adjusted.
