Does the fill cup freeze over repeatedly after clearing?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
usually within two days last night was within one night
Expert:  Kelly replied 7 months ago.

That is caused by the water inlet valve seeping. allowing water past the diaphragm when it should be closed. The valve will need to be replaced. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

The valve is mounted on the bottom of the left door, behind the number 312B cover panel, shown as number 619B in the diagram at the link below.
