Thanks very much. I don't see any fuzzy ice on the back wall. I'll try to remove the back panel and post a picture.

You ask if the condenser fan is running. How would I tell? If it weren't, wouldn't the freezer be well above freezing?

Thanks for the suggestions. It sounds like i need to poke around a bit, or else just wait for something to fail outright.  I think i'll let the noise get a little worse before I start poking.

thanks, you were right. If I'd had the sense to use a flashlight i'd have seen it straight away.

I got the "secondary valve", replaced it, and problem solved.

Thanks Samurai forum and all those who offered their suggestions! This is a terrific site.

Thanks. I will try that, but are you sure it's the bottom panel -- i'm not talking about the first solenoid connecting directly to the outside water line, its the second solenoid which is after the water filter.

I appreciate the advice.

Having found a diagram on the sears parts site, i see that there is indeed a second solenoid valve beyond the water filter. This is probably what needs replacing.

Does anyone know how difficult accessing this component is? I'd appreciate any instructions.
