I ordered and installed a new Automatic Water Supply Valve (AWSV) part no: 242252603. This is apparently a newer part that is now being used as a standard replacement for the old part. The kit included a new feeder line from valve, up to freezer entry point, and spout. When I installed the existing "in" line onto the valve, I also discovered the little copper(?) insert in the tubing was clogged and nasty with green and black crud. Although NOT the cause of the original problem, I recommend having a replacement insert ready as well (not included with the AWSV kit). The new valve seems to have done the trick WITH the new icemaker. The leak immediately stopped inside the freezer, and the new icemaker began to make ice as expected. The first batch took longer than expected, but they speed up as freezer regains cool.
