Question about GE Refrigerators
The ice maker works fine. there is frost accumulating and once the bottom gets to full with ice it starts to spill out the front. the temperature is usually right around 0 degrees

Dtot, does the flap shut all the way? Sounds like you are drawing moisture from the chute. The flapper should seat so that no air is being drawn in. I have seen a number of these Whirlpools where the pin and spring retainer has broken off from the dispensor housing causing this problem. They use to replace the whole freezer door because the dispensor housing is not a servicable part. They have now come out with a kit to address this problem. This is not a fun job for a first timer. You may want to contact Whirlpool and inquire about the aforementioned. If this is your case, there is a good chance they will cover it. Catriver..post back.

It is possible to get this build up in the return vents. Check seals for any possiblilty of warm air getting into the fridge. Warm air getting in will cause this. For now use a hair dryer or some hot water to clear the vents. Let me know what you find. Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

You have a clogged defrost drain tube. best way is to thaw unit out. Your vents are being blocked so no air flow is pushed down.

You have a hotpoint mistral f/f i take it in silver..
Check to see if the fan is running at the bottom on the back of the fridge its next to the compressor behind the panel ...
if the compressor is running and the fan is not then your fault is the fan..
IF the fan is running then its the sensors...
These are located in the freezer section, pull out the draws and remove the panel behind it.... six screws.......... you will c threes plugs at the top ledt hand side.. the yellow one is for the fridge the green one for the freezer.... replace both if your freezer is not working...
Also just below the freezer door there is a panel remove the panel and use a vaccumm to clean the fluff that has built up on the coils..
hope this helps if you need anymore help dont hesitate to ask...
by the way the sensors are called evap thermistors...

Good Day, I live out in Ca. and have only experience temp's like what you guys endure once in my lifetime. But I grew up, with Bart Starr, he was my guy, leading the Pac. in the Ice Bowl. I'm hoping to get one of the guys to add to my comments I'm going to suggest to you, there are many guys more qualified with more experience than I, that might offer more. Sometimes with Refrigerators and Freezers, is that during periods of long cold spells, the appliances can actually NOT produce enough Run-time to sustain the foods inside. In other words, because its so damn cold it will go off and if the thermostat doesn't sense the temp has risen to the point it needs to come back on, it won't. Ice creams, because of the salt content, bread (it has no density) these will be the first foods to be effected. 20yrs ago I remember we have a strip heater... wr49x211 I think it was, to add heat to get the thermostat to cycle back on.... Check around, ask -Re-post and List it.. I want somebody who knows Refer's, Lives and Works in tough weather... that'll get an answer
