Ice jams in the drop area

It builds up frost in the drop area causing the ice cubes and crushed ice to jam in the drop area. Do you know what could be causing this problem?

    Ice flap no longer closes completely allowing warm air into the ice shoot. This then develops frost which eventually stops up the ice shoot.

Ice maker ice jam


Not a whole lot you can do but to keep the frost down.
If you are able to move the items in the freezer to another freezer and let it sit overnight, all your problems will melt away....
Until a couple months later when it builds up

Make sure to double check your freezer is sealing correctly, bad gasket causes moisture to be sucked in.

Here are some basic ways to slow the buildup

Why can't I select cubed ice on my ge monogram fridge, all of the other buttons work fine.


the reason for this problem is a jam of ice inside the ice bin that will not let the knives that crush the cubes,and cant release to let cubes go by uncrushed,remove the ice bin,put the remaining cubes in a bucket,or toss,then check the ice auger in the bin and if theres a build-up of ice melt it with hot water,then thoroughly dry it,then replace this unit into the freezer,but do not use it until its cold again from melting the ice jam,then resume the ice making cycle

Helo I have a KitchenAid KSBS25FKWHOO which is like this one. My problem is there is a push button for ice cubes or crushed ice and as of now no matter which button i push it gives crushed ice. How can I...


Hi,

It sounds like your crushed ice flapper might be stuck.

Open the freezer and remove the ice bin by pulling toward you. Dump the ice into a container if you wish to save it.

Turn the bin upside down and look at the opening in the front that the ice drops out. There is a white flapper door that is controlled by a metal rod going all the way to the back of the ice bin. If you move the metal arm up and down from the back you should see the flapper door open and close. Open is for cubed ice and closed causes the cubes to travel through the blades and be crushed.

The most common failure is ice or frost build up around the flapper door that causes it to stick shut and not move to the open or cubed position. You can unthaw by running warm water through it in the sink. Dry completely before returning it to the freezer. Clean out any ice chunks from the chute in the door that might be slowing down ice. That should fix the problem.

Frigidaire Model GLHS68EGSB2, ice maker will only dispense crush ice even if you press the ice cube dispenser


You need to take out the ice bucket, empty it, let the bucket sit in the sink for a few hours. Ice builds up in the crushing blades and jams them, let all the ice melt out of it and it will be fine

Can't make ice cubes only crushed ice


Hi: There is a flap right where the ice dispenses. When you remove the bin you will see it when inverted. This flap has to open for the ice to be cubed. You might rember a slap as it swung open when it worked. There is a bar that runs from the flap to the back of the dispenser. Work it manually to see if it's jammed or broken. If not look at the back of the freezer and remove the metal panel if neccessary, to find the jam or defective part. I hope this helps, Jeff

Ice Maker frost and freeze where ice drops into refrigerator door


You need a service guy to look at it. It could be water leaking or a simple case that the flap isnt sealing and the ice melts and then freezes the flap open

Ice Jam in Chute - Whirlpool IDI SxS


first check would be to see if the flapper door is closing all the way in the dispenser area. best way is to remove the ice bucket and shine a flashlight from the front up into the disp door area and look for light around the door from inside the chute.

another check would be to make sure the door delay mechanism is connected an not allowing the dispenser door to close to fast trapping a cubes in the door and causing an air leak in the chute..

Keep in mind if you use alot of crushed ice frost build up is faster than with just cubed.
