Customer: replied 5 years ago.

It is a little worn, but I think it is KTRE22MSALYO

okay that model # XXXXX't come up so I'm winging it as far as the part goes. your water valve needs to be replaced. whats going on is the valve is not shutting tightly and water is dripping in and freezing. you can order this @ and theres a video there to show you how to replace it. this will take care of your issue. thanks and best wishes, Bryan
