Question about Refrigerators
All of a sudden the fridge sounds like its running water and its leaking from the bottom? The ice maker is working but the ice dispenser ALWAYS been frozen over. Anyone know what I can do to fix this? Its a GE side by side.
GE is a durable appliance and since you didnt provide more details you description states " the fridge sounds like its running water ". Thats good that means that the heater coil located within the walls of the freezer are doing their job. The water is traveling down to a drip pan under the fridge. This happens on a timed cycle in order to keep the ice from building up in the freezer compartment like it used to in the refridgerators long time ago.How well a job is it doing , maybe not so well ! Since you said " the ice dispenser is ALWAYS frozen over. That could be the freezer coil or it could also be the stop lever above the ice container which it is not telling the dispenser to stop producing ice.You can test it out by raising the lever to its upper most position.If it solves the over freezing then you dont have to replace it . But, In case you need to replace the motor assembly.Which is simple . First unplug the cable plugged into the back wall, and then remove the mounting screws.When you go buy the motor assemly be sure to take the BRAND, MODEL# , SERIAL# , DATE MFG which can be gotten from a plate on the inside wall And if that still freezes over unfortunately then the heater coil needs to be changed out by a tech which could be labor intensive (money wise that is). GE usually makes their product "owner friendly". You should ask the guy selling parts if he could show you an exploded view of where the heater coil is located and help give you tip on installing the coil. They have diagrams to show how and where it goes.Be sure and take note and sometimes the can help you over the phoneshould you run into a snag. At first it may seem difficult but once done you'll feel a sense of accomplishment and pride.
