Question Ice maker Fill Tube drips water than freezes up
Model Number: KSSP36QJSOO   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The ice maker fill tube drips a small amount of water over time and eventually freezes up. This causes the unit to stop making ice. I have tried to defrost the frozen fill tube with a hand held steamer and the ice maker will work for a few cycles but the fill tube will freeze again. I have actually seen droplets of water run down the fill tube after the ice maker had finished dispensing water to the ice tray. I suspect the problem might be a faulty water valve. Please help! Thank you.
