Since there is water that flows to the water dispenser, the water valve is working. Now, there's a spout that water flows from to the icemaker tray. Look for it. It's located on the back wall inside the freezer and maybe behind the icemaker tray. Check and see if it's frozen. If so, defrost your freezer by turning the temperature gauge to off position. Wait a while until it's defrosted, then turn it back on.
Next, make sure that the metal wire is in down position.
If that doesn't work, your icemaker maybe defective and needs replacement.
low water pressure or faulty valve
low water pressure the valves do not seal proper and slow drips freeze up in tube
are you on well/?
last time fridge filter was changed?
if all good faulty water valve
the problem with using a hairdryer is that although it defrost what you can see in dont that what you cannot....and youve guessed ....it turns back to ice as soon as you switch it back on ....you have to do a complete defrost(24hours)with the doors open.then dry out with towels then restart.....
I've had lots of problems with my Bosch refrigerator ice maker. The ice tray has a tab on the back corner that twists the tray when it cycle to empty the ice. That tab broke off and when I looked into replacing the ice tray the authorized Bosch dealer said the tray is only sold with the complete ice maker unit. Sells for about $160. I have a hard time spending $160 for another complete ice maker when I only need a $10 replacement ice tray. This ice maker is sub-par for an appliance name brand like Bosch.
With the information given , I would say to pull fridge out from wall , and remove the 2 screws holding the spout . Pull the spout out and defrost with warm water . Reinstall the spout and replace the water inlet valve . Valve had to have a slow leak for the tube to freeze . A model number would have helped to give a more precise answer .
Hi: It is a separate line. If the tube to the ice maker was not clogged with ice itself that is not your problem. The ice maker is thermally proctected and will not make ice unless the freezer is actually at zero degrees F. Not just frozen. The plastics in a freezer will be soft when warm even easily melt, but be hard when at operating temps. Just try setting your freezer colder to see if it kicks in. Give it at least 24 hrs. Don't do the human nature thing and open it every hour to see if it makes ice. You will just dump the cold air out. Listen for the ice to dump into the tray. I hope this helps, Jeff
Sherman usually (not always) the problem is a frozen delivery spout coming in back of the freezer. look where your ice maker and on the back wall and up behind that you will see the delivery spout area. The water valve may be bad or not opening also but it most likely has 2 solenoids 1 for water in the door and 1 for the ice maker. If you have checked and have the ability turn off the water and reverse the water inlet lines on the water valve. This is just to make sure the water passage is open. Hit the cold water cupplunger then look and see if you have water that cam into the ice maker if not your problem is in the valve or the line to the ice maker. Next hit the same plunger with the water line disconnected if you have water then your problem is in the freezer delivery and needs defrosting and cleaning if its a plastic spout it probably has lime covering it inside and freezes over or the water valve is leaking by a little and refreezing. with the water line off yuo will quickly know if its leaking by. and cover with a towel to prevent a mess if it sprays out when you try the plunger. If it still dosnt work try to check the coil on the water valve both coils should read about the same. If after all this works and you have water everyplace (thats why I said use the towel) the problem is in the ice maker circut. Either it is the main power, the ice maker motor its self, or or most likely its the fill valve switch.In any case if you purchase a new replacement Ice amker head all this will be new.OR Either replace the switch if it checks open or if its loose or there are broken parts. It requires a cam to open and close the switch so it only opens for about 5 to 15 seconds. .Hope this helps you let me know if I need to tell you more. Rate me accordingly please and Good luck.
mine was overfilling because the ice was getting stuck on the way out. So some stayed in the tray and when the water would refil, it would overfil and go over the stuk cubes. leaving it to overflow to the bottom and freeze like yours.
