Default Ice maker tube is frozen
Model Number: tfxw24rma   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The tube (Blue) inside the freezer to the ice maker is frozen and when water goes to the tube it squirts alone the inside of the freezer wall.
I disconnected the ice maker and with a hair dryer defrosted the blue tube. I also disconnected the water line and blew thru the tube water fill to clear the line. I put the blue tube back into the water fill line and re connected the ice maker. It froze up again.
Can you help me?

I also need this part but am not sure what it is. Could this be also causing my problem.

Most likely the problem is a bad water inlet valve. The part shown on your picture is the run capacitor for the compressor.

- The water inlet valve Part number: AP3672839

Part number: AP3672839



- The run capacitor Part number: AP2071964

Part number: AP2071964



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for General Electric TFXW24RMA Refrigerator | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thanks, the run capacitor connection (as you can see in the pic) got rusty and the connections are about to fall off because water has been leaking on it as I had a small hole in the hose leading up to the freezer. I replace the hose from the inlet value to the freezer today. So no more leaks. Would the inlet value make the blue hose inside the freezer compartment freeze up on me?
I did replace that value about two years ago and did fiddle with it today as I replaced the the hose.
Appreciate your patience
