Question about Refrigerators
We have a Kenmore Cold Spot 59592990 side by side
It's been extremely ok. Much of the workmanship is disappointing, but it has met our needs.
Recently, the ice dispenser has been causing problems. The bottom of the
freezer-part-dispenser (the part that feeds the ice to the
door-part-dispenser) gets a coating of frost (thick-type frost), as does the
top of the door-part-dispenser.
The frost accumulates inside the freezer (door-part) dispenser to the point
where it blocks ice from being dispensed. Then we open up the door and the blocked ice spills all over the place.
As far as we can tell, the freezer door closes properly, and we're not
seeing any obvious gaps in the dispenser tube/flap (obviously, I'm not a
real technical person when it comes to refrigerators, so I hope I'm painting
a clear enough picture).
Do we need a repair person, or is there something we can try ourselves?
Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced. The problem you describe is almost always air laekage around that flap. Post back if you need more help.

You need to replace the soleniod assembly to the door that dispenses the ice. I had the same problem with my old refrigerator and am having the same problem with my current one. The last one GE gave me $500.00 to replace the old refrigerater as long as I bought a new one from them. I think I am going to change brands this time. I don't feel like buying refrigeraters every 3-4 years because of this.
