GE Model PSIC3RGXBV. Inside freezer at top of ice chute, frost builds up. Returns after wiping. Happens on Humid and non-humid days. Empty nesters so doors are closed quickly. All vents inside clear.

the model number didn't come up,but if you have an air leak most likely it's gonna be the ice chute door itself not fully closing,you can get paper towels,and stuff them into the chute hole for a couple of days to see if that's the problem,another thing is open the door and put a light in front of the chute door and look down the hole,if you see light then the door isn't sealing or check the door gasket for any tears

GE Profile PSS26PSTA SS freezer problem

Forget the warranty - it is only for the compressor and that is usually five years. Did you check for freezer temp - wet cubes indicates too warm up there. Water dispenser lines may be clogged.

If low temps you may have low refrigerant or a defrost mechanism not working - if not working there should be ice buildup on line entering the evaporator in back of compartment.

GE 24 Profile refrigerator: The freezer part

my refrigerator goes into auto defrost every 60hrs for 45 minutes or till the bi metal(defrost thermostat) says it had enough....recently i had ice built up on the coil because my defrost thermostat was stuck open...

ice builds up because the moisture that comes from opening the door or food condenses on the cold coil...tempurature of the coil is below 32 degrees which will ice up the condensed moisture...

defrost is timed to remove this build up

Built in freezer compartment only gets cold on right side and some on back, not left side, bottom or top. Is it fixable or do we replace refrigerator....GE Model GMS10AAMLWW

Try defrosting it for a day or 2, could be ice build up on the coils, just empty it, unplug and leave the door open, have something handy to wipe the water up with as it thaws out.

The ice dispenser door does not close all the way, and frost building up inside.

You are sure about the model number listed above your post? There are many versions of that model so I just need to confirm. Has the fresh food compartment begun to warm up slightly? Is frost building up on back freezer wall indicating a defrost problem. That model has control boards that make your refrigerator more efficient. If you need more help I will give you my email address so we can communicate directly, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice build up on bottom of freezer. Water leaks out of freezer possibly from melting. Water leaks onto floor of kitchen.

Your problem is possibly one of two things. The ice maker is leaking or the defrost tray behind the rear panel inside freezer back wall is clogged with ice or something else. If you know its not the ice maker unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked there, Let me know, Sea Breeze
