Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator
The freezer has an Ultra Ease II water filtration system. The ice maker has been accumulating frost at the opening of the shute at the bottom of the ice maker and at the opening of the shute on the door where the ice is supposed to come through. I am continually having to chip the frost (which turns to ice as well) off both the door and the ice maker. The temperature and humidity in the house hasnt changed much. The fridge is a year and a half old. Please advise.
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.

I have a Sears model 106.57943700 and it was exhibiting the exact same symptoms. The ice chute door hinge was broken. Here's how I fixed it. Unplug Fridge!!! I carefully pried (a table knife worked good) the trim & ice/water selector unit (it has a connector plug on it that needs to be disconnected) from the door. Set it aside. Unclip the light / switch holder and tape it out of the way. Remove the ice chute door assembly along with the little round piston. Set it aside. Then I saw the broken plastic hinge piece that holds the hinge pin. Fortunately, the piece was still there. I super-glued it back together and put an additional bead of glue where it parted. Waited an hour and put it back together. WORKS FINE!! If you have limited mechanical abilities, you might want to seek help on this, but I fixed mine in about 15 mins. + 1 hr. glue drying time.

Flapper closure was restricted by the top section of the rubber chute (next to the water dispenser outlet) which had warped. I trimmed off 1/4 inch of the warped section - flapper now closes completely. Problem resolved in 5 minutes.

I ordered a kit for my kenmore 106.57943700 after getting advise from appliance specialist just ask or something like that..gave me the site..and they give free help. it looks like if you don't know the names of the two popular types of screwdrivers..call a repairman..but..it doesn't appear to look like engineer work..i'll let you know if i regret it.
