Question about KitchenAid KSFS25FK Side by Side Refrigerator
The ice dispenser isn't working correctly. The actual mechanism is fine, but the hole in the base of the ice cube container keeps frosting over. This stops the ice cubes from dropping through the hole and down the chute, so when you operate the lever in the dispenser all you hear is the whirring noise and no ice cubes. Any idea what is causing this frost buildup? It has only happened in the last couple of weeks. thank-you
This may very depending on the model and make of the refrigerator. Try first cleaning out the dispenser to see the extent of the issue. You may want to check on the hinges. The dispenser lets ice out but should keep the warm air from coming in. You may have a faulty hinge or the door (it is like a trap door that keeps warm air out)from freezer may be faulty. Now it lets the warm air get in the door making some icecycles plus along with other particles in your machine causing a clog.
You may want to shut the trap door until you have it replaced.

thank you for using fixya. have you tried defrosting the whole unit just over night?
this will help the coppers to cool down and melt the coolant to let it settle. once it is you will notice that the part will not be frosting anymore.
this is the most common issue and the most common solution.
hope this helps, should there be any other issues after this, please do not hesitate to let me know.
