Your defrost heater assembly has probably failed. Look at the ends of the heater for darkness like that of a bad neon bulb. Replace the heater assembly as a unit after removing the ice with a hair dryer. Becareful not to drop the glass heaters when replacing.

Kenmore fridge model 596 - 79213014 2 yrs old accumulates ice at the bottom freezer. The fridge has built it ice maker but we did not opt for that option. Can anyone pls advise how tofix the problem?


IS THERE A CONTAINER FOR THE ICE TO COLLECT IN UNDER THE ICEMAKER??? IF NOT YOU WILL NEED TO GET OR ORDER ONE..
NEXT THERE IS A WIRE LEVER ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ICE MAKER. WHEN THE ICE PUSHED THAT LEVER UP IT WILL QUIT MAKING ICE. WITH YOUR HAND GENTLY LIFT THE LEVER UP UNTIL IT STAYS LOCKED IN THE UP POSITION... ONCE IT IS IN THE UP POSITION ... IT WILL NOT PRODUCE ANY ICE.

I have a maytag bottom freezer refrigerator model#mbf1956keq


apparently its the way the maytag defrosts. I have had this issue since I bought it. FIrst of all, you dont have to go through the whole defrosting process with water on the floor and removing your freezer contents. Simply take a butter knife and from the front corner, slide it under the edge of the ice and the whole sheet can be slid out intact right under the freezer door. I think it had alot to dowith having the humidity switch on, because when it isn't like in the summer when the AC is running, the amount of ice is not that bad.

There is a sheet of ice forming in the ice cube tray and a larger one forming on the bottom of the freezer. The GE refrigerator is only 6 months old.


Because the sheet of ice is forming on the ice maker first it leads me to believe the water control valve for the ice maker is leaking water into the ice maker when it should be off. A filter installed before the dual water control valves would also be helpful. If you could find the model number of your refrigerator I would be able to tell you the part number. Sea Breeze

Freezer is icing up. Unit is about 2 yrs old


You need to check out the back of the freezer. At the current status, it may be locked with ice. Have it defrosted or just have it melted away. Clean the coils and the entire unit. Either the drains were blocked by food debris or dirt causing water to accumulate and ice to form or the thermistor has been iced or is faulty or too much ice accumulated in the unit's coils.

Ice forming where ice comes out to refrigerator


I am not sure if this is the same issue or not.  the flap that closes after you have dispensed ice does not close or seal all the way.  The gasket is worn down. the result is warm air get up into icemaker and warms ice and refreezes in one block so now the dispenser gets blocked.  We had to replace the flap in the door.  bought the part at an appliance part  store (not sears) they were helpfull and looked up the part needed.  Also a sheet of ice forms on the  bottom of the freezer.  When water is dispensed a small bit drips inside freezer in back and runs down to botom of freezer slowly forming a sheet of ice.  Use a hair dryer to defrost and then you must unclog the drain in the back at the bottom of ffreezer to allow it to drian.  Once we finally unclogged the drain we have not had any problems for about 2 years.
