Ice Maker Supply Tube is Freezing Up

Our Kenmore with ice maker stops due to ice in the water feed pipe inside the freezer. We remove the ice, get some production then it freezes again. Is there a shut-off valve that may be faulty?

The water line going into the ice maker is frozen up with ice being visually present. How do I go about thawing out the line and preventing this from happening in the future?

All the comments I have seen on this subject say to use a hairdryer. Good luck.

The refrigerator's ice maker supply tube keeps freezing up. I turned down the thermostat, but the supply tube is still freezing up. Please help.

Ice Maker Supply Tube is Freezing Up

Ours froze a couple of times. Don't know how to prevent, but we quickly unfreeze with a hair dryer. I think it happens when we use less ice and water sits in the line. (12/07/2008)
