Icicles in Freezer

My refrigerator/freezer was making a strange noise. When I opened the freezer door I saw lots of icicles forming from the shelves. Obviously something is dripping from the top of the freezer. We turned freezer off and defrosted, but when we started it up it happened again.

    Me too. GE Profile. What's up????

    I have a similar issue, i woke up this morning and it sounds like there is a compressor behind the freezer that is starting to fail.. When i open the door the compressor turns off but after a minute after closing the sound and the compressor start again... The freezer does have the most ice in it that i have seen, so i am now in the process of defrosting but as i see from the previous posts this is not going to change anything...

    I have taken off the back panel and it is completely covered in foam so whatever is making the noise is not accessible..

    If i take all the foam out the fridge will obviously never be the same again...

    What did you guys end up doing?

    Please don't tell me you went out and got a new fridge?!



    Thanks in advanced

SOURCE: Icemaker leaking causing icicles

Is it overfilling with water? If so, it may be an problem with the fill valve leaking slightly. I say slightly because if it were a large leak, the freezer would have frozen puddles in it. Also check the water chute to be sure the water is all going into the freeze tray. Sometimes they can work loose.

If the seam is leaking, there could be a crack in the housing - not sure that's repairable - sometimes epoxy will work (5 minute, 2 part) but it can be difficult for glue to hold on the type of plastic used in an ise maker housing.

SOURCE: PCG23N ice cube dispenser area problem

This is probably due to the door flap in the ice chute not closing tightly. There is a solenoid that operates the door that could have stopped working. Can you hear it? The hinge on the door could be broken or the bracket it goes in could be broken. You'll have to look to see what's wrong.
Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

SOURCE: Icicles forming from melting ice from ice maker

hi this might help you:

*make sure that the seal indeed still seal well enough...
*the older the fridge the more common this is

i don't really know much about this, but just check that it's cold enough inside like check if it changes when you change it from eg 4 to 7, and that the sealing is fine, and that your door is lined out good, also important that last thing offcourse, cause if it seems to shut good, but the seals arent in the right position compared to the other side (the 'fridge-walls' :p) they won't seal ofcourse...

I hope this is useful, and greets.

SOURCE: GE refrigerator, ice melts in ice bin

Since your refrig is cooling , I would replace the # 4 AND # 5 thermistors . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

Model acd2234hrs amana is getting a lot of ice build up through outn the freezer all food in freezer has layer of ice on it


Check that the fan is running at the back of the freezer section. If it isn't, the freezer will continue to get colder but as the air is not moving around the cabinet, you get areas of ice buildup. The fan is usually at the top of the back panel, With the fridge unplugged, remove the panel in front of the fan motor. You can otherwise check if the fan is running by pressing the door switch whilst the freezer door is open. If the fridge is running, when you press the switch, the light should go out and the fan should start.

Icicles in freezer compartment


you can do the dollar check to see if indeed the gasket is the problem,thats what it sounds like. close dollar in door and pull out slowly,you should feel some resistance.also at the top corner of door you will find 3 screws at the hinge, loosen the screws a couple of turns and you will be able to adjust the fit of the door ,move it alittle to make sure it is square with the fridge,this may help then re-tighten screws.

Frost and icicles in frost free freezer


Then the defrost assembly has stopped working. On the freezer side of the unit, remove food, remove shelves, remove the rear inside panel of the freezer. Defrost with heat gun or hair dryer and replace the defrost assembly. You can find this part on line with your make and model number.

Inside the freezer has bunch of icicles and the freezer temperature fluctuate and it does not stay constant?


Your evaporator fan motor might be bad. This causes the icicles. Listen for the fan motor turning next time, you may want to hold down door switch.

Freezer Door


Defrost to get rid of icicles (temporarily). shut the door on a piece of paper , and try to pull it out . The gasket should be tight enough with the door closed that the paper will resist being pulled out, or not come out at all. Check all around the door, it might be bad in just a small area. A bad gasket means warm air enters, cold are exits, and where the two meet, condensation forms, which inside become stalagtites (I mean icicles). The service guy should have checked it, but hey, who would expect a new appliance not to work properly? If the gasket checks out ok, maybe insulation was not installed properly in the door, which would cause temp variation. countrycurt0
