Frost on icemaker door

My Galaxy 55622 side by side refrigerator freezer has recently started building up frost on the "trapdoor" that transfers ice from the bin to the dispenser. The frost is also on a small section of the ice bin directly in line with the dispenser. The ice comes out slowly and in clumps, sometimes with frost. The ice bin is not on the door.

Re: Frost on icemaker door

Most likely the ice door is not closing properly.
Clean out the ice chute and look down it from the inside while you shine a flashlite up from the outside. If you see light around the door then it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism.
Post back and let me know what you find.

Frost builds up on the chute betwen the icemaker and the door dispenser unit.

I need you to confirm your model number. Is MZD2665HE correct? The problem is very likely a broken 12565502 Dispenser Door Spring or more providing you have the correct model number. There may be a kit if the model number is different.Thanks, John Tripp Appliance 911

SubZero 690: Frost builds up on ice chute flapper door

you have a bad seal, Take a dollar bill and slide it in between the door seal and the frig. slide it up and down to see if if has drag on it. If you find places it dont touch loosen the screws and adjust the hinges till it fits tight. In some cases you might have to tweak the doors if they need it.

Icemaker making too much ice & Freezer frosting up.

Hi gpss,
It sounds like you are getting large amounts of warm moist air into the freezer. This can be caused by the door being left cracked open or the door seal not sealing properly. Check your door gaskets on both sides of the refrigerator. One other possible is the ice chute. If it is not closing all the way it will cause the same problem. You will get alot of frost forming in the freezer then it will melt when the refrigerator defrosts. Let me know if this helps, and if you have anymore questions.

Red blinking freezer light & no ice

hi there,

check to see if you have any frost build-up on the inside of the freezer door or the water line coming into the icemaker.

if you don't, it could be the water valve soleniod (inside the icemaker) or the water valve itself. have a technician replace it.

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.
