Frost Buildup on GE Profile Arctica Side by Side Refrigerator

Frost buildup continues just above the icemaker and this is has become an ongoing issue. Temperature readings are in the normal range(s). Nothing that we know of has changed on the unit (parts loose, missing etc.)

Model is: PSS25SGNA BS

Other issue: icemaker water dispenser always drops additional water after dispensing the requested amount. This is more of a cleaning nuisance but was just wondering if anyone had experienced this same issue and whether there was an easy / inexpensive solution.

SOURCE: frost buildup around icemaker, what cause this?

Either the auto-defrost timer is not working properly or there is a lot of moisture and condensation that is building up due to humidity.

SOURCE: excessive frost buildup in bottom freezer section of Kenmore refr

In my case, this happens when the drawer does not seal properly. If I am aware of this, I don not have the snow build up. My problem is why the drawer doesn't always close properly, and it is inconsistent. There is no adjustment. Anyway, if the drawer seal is the slightest bit open, snow-like frost will build up in freezer. Mine is a GE pds20mcrbb

The water dispenser and ice maker side run separate sides of the water control valve. Fill ice maker with tap water and let it freeze. If it dumps the ice then does not refill then the water control valve is the problem. I will be back soon with a photo and some links, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE Profile Arctica not making ice


Check to see if the fuse for the icemaker is blown. Check to see if the linkages are moving. Check the activation motor is getting power.

My GE 2008 side by side , the freezer is working but the food storage is not help ?


one of 2 things can be wrong,#1) if theres a heavy frost buildup on the rear inside wall of the freezer compartment then its a defrost issue,which will block air flow to the refrigerator side,take off back panel and test defrost heater and thermostat both on evaporator coil for continuity,thermostat has to be below 32 degrees to test good,most of the time its the hearter on G.E.. #2)if no frost buildup,then check the damper vent door between the freezer and refrigerator compartments and make sure its not stuck or broken shut and can no longer open and close to keep temperatures in refrigerator cold

I have a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator that I purchased used last week. Developing quite a bit of frost buildup inside the upper half of the freezer. Also noticing that the flap for the ice doesn't...


Hi yes the flap will cause the frost, you need to replace the solenoid that controls that flap, if this is a side by side, the solenoid is behind the dispenser controls on the freezer door, you take off the control board, and then remove the little mount behind that it has 4 screws and you will see solenoid on right side, it needs to be replaced.

Ge profile arctica side by side- ice maker and water dispenser not working..have already replaced the water filter


The water dispenser and the icemaker both operate on different soleniods on the water valve so the chances of a bad valve are slim. I would assume you issue is in your water supply. The easiest thing you could try first would be to check your saddle valve that taps into your main water line to supply the ref. They are known for calcium deposits which obstruct the flow of water. This issue is IDed by very slow water pressure through th door. If its gunked your icemaker fill tube may also be frozen.

Icemaker leaking


Check two things.

1: see if you have ice buildup in the water inlet tube above ice maker, if you do chance are the water valve is bad, if not,

2: see if you have icicles hanging from bottom of ice maker, if you do you have a bad ice maker.

Either way, will need full model number and serial number both to get you the right part numbers for parts.

Frost buildup inside freezer door at ice dispenser


you are still not getting a seal on that flap. It sounds as if it may be warped. THe reason the frost and ice is building up is due to the flap not sealing there isn't any other reson for your problem. Good luck on your repairs

I have a GE Profile Arctica side by side. The top quarter of the freezer is above 32 degrees. I know that because all the ice in the ice maker has melted and icicles are forming down below. This happened...


Greetings,

This freezer coil is likely froze over. this is because its stopped its automatic defrost. The thing to do is remove freezer panal and see if evaporator is froze over. if so, derost it..this will give you temp service. there is a fan midway in freezer..its possible its not running as well and this is the problem. see if fans coming on while you have it apart.

No cooling


Both refrigerator and freezer operate from one system. Air from freezer cools refrigerator. Check back wall of freezer for frost buildup. If frost is evident on the back wall of the freezer it indicates a defrost system problem.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
