have a Samsung refrigerator (RF28JBEDBSR) that has an in door water dispenser. The water line is freezing up about once a week. A forced defrost cycle is restoring the water, but once a week is excessive. What can I look at for a more permanent fix?

Is there a revision number of the model number tag? I see about 8 revisions to this model--->RF28JBEDBSR

The model number tag is located inside the refrigerator section on the upper walls or ceiling.

Yes, when this happens its usually the armature in the water inlet valve solenoid coil is not seating correctly on the diaphragm and it's letting a small amount of water past, thus freezing the water line.

Thanks!

The water inlet valve comes as an assembly:
