I have had this happen to me before. What happens is the water fill valve
does not completely close and the tube will freeze shut as a small ammount of water will continuosly dribble into the tube when the valve shuts off causing the tube to freeze solid. I tried to clean the valve but that did not work so I replaced it and that ended the problem. A new valve is not expensive.

Hope this helps

Default Fixed freezing

I fixed a freezing tube by unfastening the feed line (under the door), unbastening parts of the dispenser assembly (allowing in warm air), blowing air through it, and waiting about an hour. When I could feel the air going through, I knew the line had cleared. I then re-connected the tube and assembly and all was well.
