My icemaker was freezing up at the water inlet and dumping water into the freezer each cycle. I replaced the icemaker, same result. I tested the old wiring harness and the thermal fuse appears to be good. What is wrong and how do I fix it?
ANSWER Hello Mark,
The fill tube freezing up is the symptom of a water valve that is leaking through the seal after it closes. You see, when the water valve seal starts leaking, it weeps water into the fill tube slowly enough that it freezes in the fill tube. This can only be corrected by replacing the water inlet valve W10408179.
