So the line to the icemaker keeps freezing up?

Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

You will need to replace the water valve for that issue, the water valve is bad and is leaking a small amount of water through the valve causing that issue. Just pull the unit and shut the water supply line off and replace the valve. CLICK HERE PART that will fix that issue.

All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you. Also rating now does not close the question out and you can come back anytime for FREE right here to me......Happy Holidays!

I replaced the water valve, it froze up and cracked. I had to replace it again. It dumped two batches of ice, then I guess it froze up again. Now, it will not dump ice, nor will it dispense water at the door. Completely frozen. There is also water built up in water filter chamber. We've replaced, the water filter, water valve, control board and the damper assembly.
