First, this site is fabulous. I had a problem with the fridge being to warm. You recommended replacing the defrost heater. It worked... now 40 degrees all the time. My wife has told all her friends and they think I'm a genius... Now the bad news. After a week working fine, we came home and found water leaking out of the back of the fridge. It was leaking out of the top of the fill line to the icemaker. I thought the problem was a weak clamp, so I replaced it. No more leak....but then I noticed that the icemaker was not producing ice. It seems to cycle--but no ice. From reading previous posts, I conclude that the tube must be frozen. If so, why would that happen after it worked for one week? Is the solution to unfreeze the tube with a hairdryer and see if that works? ...and if I do that wouldn't the problem just happen again. I just hope I didn't disturb anything when I took apart the back of the freezer.
