If you go to geappliances.com click on service and support then click on use and care manuals you can download a use and care manual. Since the refrigerator is white I'd probably use a good bleach spray on the mold be sure to rinse well though so you don't end up ingesting bleach. Chunk of ice sounds like too much water or not enough cold and a qualified tech might not be a bad idea. Good Luck.

Mold growing around ice dispenser area. Cant figure out how to get to the mold .


Pull ice maker out and clean it. Then make sure you have a fresh water filter on water supply. Mold in the freezer is uncommon if its truly freezing inside. You have dirty water coming in.

Cleaning the water dispenser from old mold and etc.it is all black inside where the tube for the water comes out and all up above inside


Very common issue with all dispenser models. Can be caused by many things, depending on the make and model. Basic issues are due to warm ambiant air mixing with cooled air at the dispenser flap area...Failure of the low wattage heater that controls the Dew Point temperature (prevents sweating). This sweating can cause the mechnical and electrical parts to rust and or fail. Without a model #, can't advise on access...as some can be difficult.

Mold/Bacteria formed between ice dispenser and dispenser lever Can dispenser be removed from lever for cleaning? If not, how to clean?


Use a bathroom mold and bacteria remover spray available from most supermarkets. Also spray down into the feeder on the inside of the door. Make sure you rinse the area thoroughly after use and run water through the water chiller dispenser and run some ice throughthe ice dispenser and throw these away. Then it should be safe to use.

Mold/Bacteria formed behind ice dispenser spout and above dispenser lever. Can spout be removed for cleaning? If not, How to clean?


Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Although you may can clean it by just spraying everything you can reach with a spray bottle of bleach and water mix and let it set for a while and then rinse with clean water. Test an inconspicuous spot the check for damage. Or another mold killer may work just as well.
