    Ice maker valve keeps freezing up
    by: Anonymous

    We've only had this fridge for a few weeks but I'm already ready to get rid of it. First time the ice maker valve froze up, it streamed water out of the back of fridge... onto our brand new cabinets! The second time, it just stopped making ice. Also, the display on the front of the ice maker/water selector is horrible... it doesn't light up correctly. It's extremely annoying that I have to go through all the choices to get what I want. Seems cheap.
