Mold on Ice dispenser

If there is mold on the outside of the ice dispenser you should wipe it down periodically/ weekly or more often with a mild mixture of soapy water with a touch of bleach in it. Make sure that nothing in the refrigerator is blocking the port that ice is deliver through or that ice is not building up around the inside of it. And do not let water or ice lay stagnant in the door tray at the bottom of the dispenser.

Good Luck and God Bless

The water in the door that comes out by the ice is not cool at all. tap water is colder

Since the cooling tank is located in the refrigerator area behind the crisper drawers, the only explanation for less than col water coming from the water dispenser is that your fresh water line is connected to the hot water spigot instead of the cold one.

Freezer is too cold, ice crystals. Refriderator

I'm not sure which one you have, but try this: Look for the area where the air passes from the freezer to the refrigerator side, in the wall somewhere between them. Make sure that there isn't something blocking the passage. This is a good place to start.

The water in the in-door dispenser is coming out hot

If this freezer is like most, the water going to the dispenser is looped around many times in the refrigerator section near the back. Make sure that this is still true. It must have a lot of water cable in the refrigerator section so that the water has time to cool down before it goes out the dispensor. If for some reason the water tube is touching either the compressor motor or another hot part of the external refrigerator it could cause it to be to hot to cool down in time during its travel through the refrigerator as well as it will start to warm up the refrigerator section as well.

Also, I am sure you have tested, but make sure that you are plugged into the cold water supply and not the hot water supply. Check the water at the connector and see what the temp is at that point before it enters the refrigerator.

My guess is that the coil of water tubing that is usually in the back of the refrigerator section has been either lessend in length or the water entering the refrigerator is too hot to be cooled down in time before it reaches the dispenser.

Kenmore Refrigerator

check the mirco-switches behind the panel at the dispenser section. basically, when you depress the lever for water or ice, those levers make contact with a switch, and the switch turns on the ice dispenser motor. if the lever is pushed too hard, the switch can be knocked out of position. I had to re-position my ice switch with some duct tape.
