GE Adora dshf6vgbccbb ice maker water line freezing
« on: May 23, 2014, 06:50:13 PM »

Hi, like the subject says, the water line that comes out of the top of the freezer and dispenses water into the ice tray seems to keep freezing.  I noticed the ice maker was not making any ice since we got home from vacation.  Today I realized that the opening of the water line inside the freezer was frozen.  Using a  hair dryer, I melted the frozen water jamming the opening and it made some ice.  However, I noticed that there is already some ice forming in the opening of the water line.  What could be causing this?  I should add that since we were away from the house for a few days, I turned off the water to the whole house.  I started doing this after a friend came home to a flooded house from a break in a sink water line.  Would this have caused any problems?

yes if unit cycles and water pressure is low the valve will not completely shut off and will drip.  when electricity is applied to valve it opens when power removed the water pressure closes the valve that is why they tell you in owners manuals not to use an ro system,  turning off water would cause little or no pressure to close valve and water would drip through and freeze in line

I've also seen this happen from an obstructed filter. The water doesn't flow fast enough and ice builds up.
