Could be that the supply tube is frozen inside the freezer compartment, so the water is finding its way out of of the inlet line. Try thawing the supply tube with a hair dryer.

The primary cause of frozen supply tubes is either 1) a leaky water valve that allows water to keep dripping into the supply line even when the valve is shut -- or -- 2) a restricted airflow to the back of the fridge, usually caused by an accumulation of dirt around the base of unit. First check under the fridge - if it's filthy (as many often are) clean it well with a vaccuum cleaner. Then thaw the supply tube and see if that fixes it. If not, you'll need to check the supply valve. Not hard, but beyond the scope of this reply. Check out this link http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/icemaker/diagicemaker.php

Turn water supply to refrigerator off and get a pan or towels to collect what water that will spill when disconnected. On each end of the quick connect coupling is a ring hold the coupling tight with one hand while pressing the ring towards the center of the coupling and then pull the water line out. When replacing the water line trim the part of the water line off where the ring was before or the line may leak once you reattach the water line. Press ring towards the coupling to remove and simply push the existing line after trimming into coupling and pull tight. The grip inside the coupling will lock the line in place. If you have questions please let me know, Thank You Sea Breeze

Defrost completely. The unit is probably iced up. Make sure your gaskets are clean and sealing well. If it happens again, we need to find out why. Also...clean the condenser.

The line going into the dispenser is a 5/16 line. You'll have to remove the front of the dispenser on the door to get access to the line to unclip it. Once you have that done you can pull the line out from the bottom. At this point there are a variety of different unions, compression fittings, etc. to splice the line. After that you just feed the line back through the bottom of the door, clip it back in place, put the dispenser back together and your done.

Most likely the valve has failed. Usually located in the back of the refrigerator, near the bottom - otherwise, follow your water line (feed from the house water supply).

Make sure your refrigerator is level. Once your refriderator is level you should also check that your ice maker is level. You have some range of movement of the screws that attach the ice maker to the refrigerator if you loosen the screw and push up on the ice maker then re-tighten the screw.

Hi, When that strip gets hot, it is a sign the temperatures are not cold enough. Put a thermomitor in the freezer. You should get a reading of 0 to 5 above. If not, let me know and we can try and get you through this.

Thanks

Could be the defrost heater as well. Some units use a adaptive control instead of a defrost timer.

If you were to take everything out of the inside of the freezer and look at the rear wall of the inside of the freezer you will notice there are screws on this panel so that this panel can be removed. Once you removed this panel this would give you access to the evaporator coil. If you look above the coil you will see the culprit that makes them awesome noises you enjoy so much. If you see any ice build up anywere in this area you would defrost it with a hair dryer. This issue is called a defrost problem that your unit is experiencing. This is due to one or more of three basic parts. Two of those parts are located right in the area where you have accessed the evaporator coil. You would need a multimeter and be able to perform an ohms test on each of these next two parts mentioned to diagnose which part or if both had a fault. The first part is called the defrost thermostat which is a small round sensor that is clipped onto one of the copper lines near the top of the evaporator coil. Here is a link to click that is the entire schematic for your machine if the last numbers after the q that you posted were 03 there are three models an 04 as well as an 00. The 03 has 3 more parts listed then the others. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Roper-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-RS22AQXKQ03/0893/0165000?searchedModel=RS22AQXKQ&blt=11
you would then go into the unit section and click that as well your defrost thermostat is part number 35 and the defrost heater is part number 33 do the testing on these parts and if you find no fault message me back and I will explain more on the defrost timer or adaptive control due to the look up site just went down for maintenance. If you have any questions message me those back as well. Thank you
