    Door is not opened very much. Believe that air is getting in, because the flap does not close properly, between the door and the freezer, where the ice comes through the door.

    frost will only build up in a freezer if the door is left open too long or if there is air getting into it constantly

There is only so much you can do. But the problem is the gasket inside that seals around the opening where your ice is dispenses is bad. You need a service tech to replace gasket. If you want to try get the model and serial number and take it to an Appliance parts house and tell them you want dispenser seal gasket. You just tell them what its doing and most of them know exactly what you want. Rus

Refrigerator side not cooling. The freezer works fine. Its age is over ten years old. Model GE TFX22R.


Is there any frost build up on the freezer panel? If not, this could be a damper door issue. Check to see if air is coming from the damper, this is the vent inside the back left-corner of the fresh food side, assuming the evap fan is running. If you feel nothing, it more than likely is your damper door.


If you have frost build up, we're talking about a defrost issue then. Let me know!

FROST BUILD UP ON ICE STORAGE BIN AND INSIDE OF


Most times this is caused by the dispenser door not shutting all the way. This causes moist air to be drawn in through the opening and the moisture will freeze in that area and also cause the dispenser door to have even more problems closing. Check the door and get me your model number so I can list the parts that are most likely causing this, Thanks Sea Breeze

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 Artica side by side. I am getting a frost build up


Sounds like the dispensor flap is not closing completely , pulling outside air in . Using a flashlight on the outside of the flap , look inside to see if any light is visible . If so , then the ice flap plunger and solenoid will have to be replaced . Also , excessive crushed ice can also cause frosting .

The ice dispenser door does not close all the way, and frost building up inside.


You are sure about the model number listed above your post? There are many versions of that model so I just need to confirm. Has the fresh food compartment begun to warm up slightly? Is frost building up on back freezer wall indicating a defrost problem. That model has control boards that make your refrigerator more efficient. If you need more help I will give you my email address so we can communicate directly, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Excessive frost build up inside the freezer


Your problem is not a recall it is the fan and how many items you have in your freezer. Is it stuffed pretty full?

Frost building up inside freezer.


Hi: Make sure your vents are not blocked by too much product in the freezer. When you changed the heater did you take a hair dryer to the back to make sure the initial blockage of frost and ice was removed as that will still block the air flow to the referigator, and cause frost to build? Also if the frost isn't in the back of the freezer but on the food it means there is a bad door seal. Usually the frost will look like snow flakes. The timers are on a circuit board now. And expensive. Ge makes an excellent refrigerator, but the parts are high in price. I hoped this helped. Jeff
