Why would ice from the front door have an off taste but the ice in tray in the bottom freezer tastes fine?


I don't see from the literature that this model dispense ICE from the "front door." The dispenser on the left door seems only to dispense water. In your configuration the water comes through a completely closed system until it reaches your glass and should therefore not have an order or taste different from that of your cubes in the bottom Freezer.

Bottom freezer door will not close


a) Door may be mis-aligned on the track

b) In a rare case, you may have ice layer building on the bottom floor of the freezer due to defrost drain line block. This ice layer might cause the door not to close properly.

c) May be other reasons too

Why does water freeze on bottom of freezer


Short answer: Because it's cold. It's what freezers do.

The long answer requires you to describe a bit more about what you've got and what is happening. What model freezer do you have? Is it a frost-free, or manual defrost? How old is it? Does it have a built-in icemaker?

Possibilities:
1) Your freezer is leaking some water from the ice maker or possibly the through-the-door water connections.
2) Your door gasket is no longer sealing, and humid air is getting in to the freezer, where the water condenses out and falls to the bottom of the freezer, creating ice. Make sure the door closes completely, that nothing stops it from closing, and that the gasket is tight; put a crisp dollar bill between the unit and the door gasket, and see if you can easily slide it around. If so, you need a new gasket.
3) Or, you may have a frost-free model and the hole where the water from the defrost cycle is supposed to drain is clogged. Pull things out of the bottom of the freezer, melt the ice, and see if there's a small hole. If so, make sure it's clear and clean; use a small brush, not anything sharp or abrasive.

The freezer door will not close tight


Hello, check the freezer sliding door rail. Removed everything in your freeze then gently slide out the freezer door. Check the bottom of the freezer for food items that may have dripped into the bottom of the freezer. Now, the check the roller rails along each side of the freezer there could have been widget that got smash by the roller on the freezer door, if you find this smashed widget--he not drunk--he is dead. Scrape the those roller rails and clean the and get all the globs,ice cream, widgets, pieces of other different types of freezer flub.
Next, set a level on the freezer door and see if the bubble is point forward, if not then screw up the front two leveler in the front of the freeze--one on each side in the front of the freezer/refrigerator. I hope this help you. GB...stewbsion

Major ice crystals in the freezer section


If the icing is on the back wall in the freezer, the main reason for ice to form will be, if the defrost system is not working. There are 3 main parts to the defrost system:

  1. Timer or Board
  2. Heating element
  3. Bi-metal (sensor)
If any of these parts fail, it won't defrost and icing will occur.

Another reason will be if the evaporator fan motor quits. It will have the same affect as a no defrost condition.

If the icing is everywhere, side walls also, this is usually caused by moisture. This is from air leaking into the cabinet. It could be from the door not closing good, gaps in the door gasket or it could be leaking around the cabinet flange. For gaps in the door seal you can use a hair dryer to straighten it, just be careful not to get the gasket too hot. If the cabinet flange is leaking, some RTV will seal it.

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.



The ideal temp for the freezer is around 10 degrees F.
Look at the evaporator coils behind the rear cover inside the freezer and check the ice forming on the coils.

I had this problem and it was due to a poor door seal. Check around the area where the ice is forming to see if there is air leaking from the freezer.

Will not dispense water or ice


Check for broken or frayed wires at the bottom of the freezer door.

There is a wire harness that is routed around the bottom of the freezer door right by the hinge.

After many opening/closings of the freezer door, these wires tend to break or fray and short or open.
