Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Exits to the door.

My ice maker has frosted up at the place where the ice comes out into the door. It seems like the rubber gasket in the door that keeps warm air out is dead. Is this replacable? This is the gasket above the ice and water dispenser in the door. Not the door gasket.

Remove the bottom toe plate by removing a screww on each side in the front . Disconnect the electrical connector that comes out from the bottom of the freezer door ( this removes all power to the door ) . Using a small screwdriver , under the bottom of the door display board , twist slightly on the left and right portion of the board ( to remove the display board . Disconnect the 3 plug ins from the board and remove . There are 4 screws holding the white housing shield in place ( 1 on each corner ) . Remove these and slide the housing out .

Ice maker chute not sealing. Ice and frost is building up around the ice maker and the chute door in the freezer door.


Thank you for your post, friend!

It sounds like there could be a possible air leak within your Frigidaire refrigerator. I would check the gasket that goes around your refrigerator. The best way to test this would be to place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then replace the gasket.

If the seal checks out to be fine it could be a possible problem with your dispenser or leak within your icemaker. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnosis your appliance. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

I have a Kelvinator KC1 37A fridge freezer and the freezer section keeps icing up far too much. After defrosting within 3 days it has iced so much that the door won't shut. It only seems to have one dial...


A couple of things can cause this problem.

First - has the one temperature control you mentioned been accidentally changes to a lower temperature? If so, turn it down a notch or two.

Second - Is the door's rubber gasket worn, out of place or needs cleaning and not sealing properly?
If this is the case, it's letting warm air in and causing it to liquefy and for frost/ice in the freezer compartment. Open the Freezer compartment door and carefully inspect the gasket. If it has moved and out of place anywhere on the door frame, put it back in place. Is the door gasket dirty? If so, clean it with mild soap and water. Dry it and close the door.

To check to see if the door gasket is sealing tight, open the door and stick an unfolded dollar bill between the gasket and the freezer compartment opening. Close the door and try to pull the bill out. Do this in several places all around the door. If the bill pulls out easily, then the door gasket needs to be replaced. You can probably replace it yourself, if you can find a supplier for the gasket.

I suggest you try the following link, as they stock a lot of parts for Kelvinator appliances

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Look into the dispensor , and see if the door flap is closing , or letting warm air in which will cause the frost buildup . If not closing completely , remove the top cover on the freezer door hinge , and unplug the plug . This will remove power to the door . Use a small screwdriver , and insert under the freezer door dispensor control board , and pry outward . Remove the 3 plugs on the board . Next , remove the 4 screws holding the white dispensor cover , and slide outward . At the top right , you will see a solenoid and plunger , which control the door flap . Usually , this plunger rusts on the solenoid . Replace both , the solenoid and plunger ( come together in kit ) Pt # WR62X10055 . Re-assemble in reverse .

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

The excess frost on the ice maker and bucket can be caused by the ice chute door not closing all the way or a leaky door gasket letting air in.

Layer of frost on the bottom surface of ice maker


during periods of high humidity and or high use, it is not unusual to notice frost on surfaces in the freezer. the ICM is susceptible due to it being metal and having warm(compared to freezer temp) water in it. make sure the doors ar closed tight and nothing is stuck in the gasket area.
