Frost builds up on the inside of the ice bucket and the ice seems to be melting together. Water runs out of the bottom of the ice bucket both inside and through the front.


Make sure the ice Chute door is closing all the way usually when you have frost build up in that area the ice Chute door is stuck open and it's going to have to be repaired

Ice dispenser frost build up - Amana refrigirator


This sounds like your ice may be melting and freezing around the chute. You may need to replace that rubber gasket on the chute. Otherwise, if you use a lot of crushed ice, that will build up badly on the chute and you can manually clean that off. I hope this helps you!

GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. side by side is frosting in the shoot


Oddly enough, the problem is with your ice dispenser. What happens is that the door at the bottom of the ice chute is probably not sealed. This is likely because there is a solenoid that is supposed to hold that door open when you push your cup against the dispenser arm, and THEN, close it again when you release. If the chute door is not sealed, warmer, moist air from outside the refridgerator will be canstantly drawn up the chute where the moisture will freeze as frost. Gradually, this frost builds up in the chute until there is no longer enough room foir the ice to fall. You can usually look up at the chute from outside and see that the door is not sealed. In my case, I left it unsealed because the door would not open to let the ice out. It took me about 3 months to figure out that this was causing my frost-clogging problem. The solution is to replace the solenoid that is supposed to open and close the chuite door. If you remove the despenser panel, you will see that this solenoid is probably all rusted up and not working. The following link will allow you to enter you model number and see a diagram of the offending area. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php

Freezer and fridge warming up (GE side by side)


You have a defrost problem...and a dispenser chute or door problem... first check the door for air leaks . check that the chute door is closing tight and allways... also check around the door seal..

Now your defrost problem you have three parts defrost timer, heater and defrost thermostat .(bi-metal) the most likely problem is you bi-metal it is cliped on the evaporator about the size of a quarter with two wires mostly brown and orange... with the power off...and with the bimetal cool check it for check continuity... also check the heater for continuity .. next check your defrost timer it can be with the controls or in at the bottom under the cover,, or in the back ..there is a knob to advance the timer .. turn it untill it clicks and you have stated the defrost cycle. it should take around 20 minutes then the compressor will state again... hope this helps let me know

look at the chute where the ice comes out the door and see if the door in there is sticking open and leaking air in some times it helps to hold a flashlight on the out side aimed up the chute while lookin down on the inside

Ice Jam in Chute - Whirlpool IDI SxS


first check would be to see if the flapper door is closing all the way in the dispenser area. best way is to remove the ice bucket and shine a flashlight from the front up into the disp door area and look for light around the door from inside the chute.

another check would be to make sure the door delay mechanism is connected an not allowing the dispenser door to close to fast trapping a cubes in the door and causing an air leak in the chute..

Keep in mind if you use alot of crushed ice frost build up is faster than with just cubed.

GE side by side refrigerator ice dispenser


If you take a look at this diagram, you should be able to see all the inner workings of that area and decide if you want to repair it. I think anyone with the most basic mechanical skills could easily handle this repair. See parts 62,63,67, etc. Could just be the spring is off or broken.
