Default Water Inlet to Ice Maker Won't Stop Dripping; Freezes into an icicle. Help!
Model Number: 10655603400   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years

I've been having such trouble with my ice maker on my Kenmore Elite 106.55603400 for awhile now...


For over the past 3 years, my ice maker would freeze under the cube tray to a point where it would affect the turn motor to eject the ice into the ice bucket. I've replaced the turn motor more than a few times that I can now do it in under 5 minutes.


I started to modify my actions by monitoring the build-up of ice over a few weeks where I would then just unplug the ice maker, let it defrost, and re-plug it.


I could never figure out why there was such a build-up of frozen water in and around the ice maker tray.


This most recent time, I opened the freezer after unplugging/removing the ice maker to find what you see in this picture.


Now, for the past week, my line is doing this and it's creating an icicle from the water spout that feeds into the ice maker.


If I keep the freezer open for about a minute, there's enough warm air where it'll cause the icicle to melt a little and it will projectile eject out and water will sprout out.


Does anyone have any idea what is causing this?


Thanks in advance for your guidance, input, and expertise!
