Hi all,

My ice maker is on the fritz and causing a big build up in my freezer. My guess is a clogged drain pipe, but I really have no idea. Any help would be great.

Hi Nate, So this just happened today? It was working great yesterday?

One of two problems, either the ice maker didn't signal the water inlet valve to shut off, OR the water inlet valve got stuck open and continued to keep pouring water in and it froze. So it would be best to order both the water inlet valve and the ice maker since we don't know which was the cause.

Here's the water inlet valve for your model:

Here's the ice maker for your model:

We just bought the house and there was no ice in it. When I turned the ice maker on, it made ice, but also started to do this. I don't know if this was a problem before this or not.

Is it a relatively easy replacement?

Really appreciate the help.

Yes Nate,

Order both the parts I linked you to in my post #2 above. Don't order these parts below, I'm just posting them because they have videos in them to show you how.:)

There is a video in this link to replace the water inlet valve:
