The trap door through which the ice comes will not close all the way. Consequently, there is always a buildup of frost in the chute inside the freezer door.

Frost builds up on the inside of the ice bucket and the ice seems to be melting together. Water runs out of the bottom of the ice bucket both inside and through the front.


Make sure the ice Chute door is closing all the way usually when you have frost build up in that area the ice Chute door is stuck open and it's going to have to be repaired

When i close the door on the freezer side the water trickles down the front panel


This could be a leaking water valve. First thing I would suggest is to turn the water supply off under the sink or behind fridge wherever its located and see if the leaking stops.If so then you'll need to replace the water valve on fridge. If this doesn't work look up inside the ice chute on front of door and make sure the flapper is closing all the way when you get ice. Warm air coming up into freezer because the flapper is not sealing tight can cause water to run down front of fridge.If this is the case there is usually frost buildup on the ice chute on the inside of door.

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!

ICEMAKER FROSTING UP


Try to take some ice from the dispenser. Remove the glass and open the freezer door to look down inside the dispenser chute and see if the trap door has re-closed. If it remains open warm, humid air will enter the ice bucket and gradually freeze the cubes together. Trap door remaining open is generally caused by a rusted electrical coil which pulls the door open electrically then sticks, unable to re-close. Coil is located behind the panel that operates the dispenser. Relatively easily accessible.

Ice maker frosts over on the chute


This would indicate a problem with the ice chute door seal. Have it serviced. Air leakage would cause the frost-ice buildup.

Ice Jam in Chute - Whirlpool IDI SxS


first check would be to see if the flapper door is closing all the way in the dispenser area. best way is to remove the ice bucket and shine a flashlight from the front up into the disp door area and look for light around the door from inside the chute.

another check would be to make sure the door delay mechanism is connected an not allowing the dispenser door to close to fast trapping a cubes in the door and causing an air leak in the chute..

Keep in mind if you use alot of crushed ice frost build up is faster than with just cubed.

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over


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 or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.

Frost buildup on ice/water dispenser


Is the trap door flap closing properly where the ice comes through the door? If open, warm air would be coming in frosting and maybe iceing things up
