How do we fix Fill tube freezeup?

The fill tube is what puts the water into the ice maker in the freezer.  Check to see if it is clogged with ice.  If so clear it with a blow dryer, or pull it out and run it under hot water.  Your problem could also be a bad fill valve or the ice maker is not giving power to the valve.  If the valve is going bad by not putting enough water thru it in the fill time it will get clogged with ice.  If the tube is froze up, suspect the water valve might be going bad also.
