SOURCE: kitchenaid stand alone ice does not make ice feel heat inside bin

Either has electric problem or mechanical.
way to tell is plug it up, turn it on turn on water. If its sending in water unplug it and if water stops it is electrical and the ice maker head is causing the problem if it stops the water valve is stuck open and you can disassemble and clean it out sometimes. A slight lime scale can cause this.
Hope this helps please rate me accordingly and good luck.

SOURCE: ice built up in the frost free freezer section

It sounds like the freezer fan(evaporator) is wearing out. This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan spins but no fast enough to circulated the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The parts and labor are around $300.00

SOURCE: The refrigerator and freezer are working

Generally, the defrost is based on compressor run time and not ime of day that it defrosts. The defrost cycle time is between 10 and 30 minutes and does not allow the temperature to increase enough to defrost or start to thaw food. This suggests that another problem may be occouring. The goal temperature in the freezer should be 0 degress F. It may not be reaching this temperature due to a dirty condenser coils (clean with a bottle brush and vacuum, or a air leak through the door seals.

Top shelves in freezer not freezing food. Also no ice from ice maker. Seems cold air has stopped coming out of top vent

We had the same problem with our refrigerator just yesterday. Defrosting (even tho frost-free) cleared up the airflow problem-- If it's frost-free, when it defrosts enough to allow air flow, the automatic defrost can take over. Cause was stored food blocking the vent between the freezer and lower part of fridge.

Food in produce bins is freezing

From what you are describing it sounds like the air damper is frozen-up & unable to close. This would allow too much cold air going into the refrigerator section. You will need to remove the back panel inside the freezer compartment & inspect the air damper (diffuser). If you see ice & frost built-up in that area you will need to replace the air damper & defrost the ice.

My GE fridge has a freezer (top) that is thawing food. I took out the base (floor) covering the freezer coils, and I found that the freezer (evaporator?) fan was frozen still - a block of ice had formed...

The automatic defrost system is not working. All frost-free machines have a heater in the freezer to melt the frost away on a timed schedule. Every day or two the defrost cycle is initiated by the defrost timer. A heater melts the frost, then the cooling system is turned back on.

Frost free freezer icing up

It should still be covered under the warranty.

How to check everything
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Suddenly there is frost covering everything! What

It may not be sealing properly. check to see if a dollar bill will easly slide between the seal and the door. move the food ( and ice) away from the door then test with the dollar again. If it is not sealing clean with soap and watr using a dish brush. test again after drying. The last is to put a small amount of silicone greaseon the seal. The plumbing section section of the hardware store carries plumbers grease.

Freezer not freezing

If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Ice built up in the freezer compartment

We have a possible defrost problem or the seal around your doors are pulling moist air air inside. I believe now would be a good time to unplug the refrigerator and check the coils and defrost system. Inside the fresh food compartment you have a defrost timer that I want you to turn clockwise slowly until the compressor stops. Leave it there for about 25 minutes until refrigerator either restarts or don't if it does not then turn it a little more until it starts. The part number for the timer is 482493 Also below is a picture and #6 is the defrost timer. It should be reachable through a small hole in the bottom of the control panel. If everythig is well there we will check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. After you check these things let me know the results. Sea Breeze

Ice cubes made by ice maker become large fused chunks over time.

Ice cubes will deteriorate over time if not used. They shrink due to defrosting of the freezer and will become stale.
Once the ice bin is full, turn the ice maker off until you use the cubes and or dump the cubes every 3 or 4 days and start over.
