First , remove the top freezer door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door . 1 ) Use a small screwdriver on the bottom of the dispensor board , and twist to unsnap the bottom of the board . 2 ) Remove the 3 plugs from the board . 3 ) remove the 4 screws , holding the dispensor cover on , and slide cover out . 4 ) At the top right , you will see a black solenoid with a plunger ( usually rust ) . This is the part that needs replaced . Pt # WR62X10055 . This part comes with the plunger . Do not try to just clean , as this problem will happen again if not replaced . Re-assemble in reverse .

Freezer is full of snow


Check freezer and refrigerator door seals, ice dispenser ice door and floor of freezer for ice buildup caused by a defrost drain blockage. If ice door is stuck open it will allow for warm moist air to be drawn inside freezer and collect as frost over everything. Is GTS16BCS the correct model number listed above your post? I will be here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Our subzero freezer has a new problem. The cubes


Ice cubes WILL BE slightly moist when they land in the ice bucket. they've just been slightly melted in order to eject from the ice maker. Stop playing with the settings, for starters. put them back to normal, i.e., middle setting, place thermometer in center of freezer, and if you can, one in center of fresh food. monitor after 24 hours, and for the next three days thereafter. freezer temps should be in the -5 - +5°F, sometimes up to 10°, fresh food should be 35-40, sometimes up to 44°at the normal settings. If you are not having temperature issues, see if you notice any frozen drips of water on the underside of icemaker, indicating a possible crack in the ice maker mold, or a faulty water valve. You didnt include your model and serial number, so not knowing the path of the ice shoot, some go out the freezer door, some slide over and get dispensed from the fresh food side. Its possible you may have a problem instead with the flapping door that opens to allow ice cubes to be dispensed, or similar type mechanism. If this door does not seat completely when its closed, it will leak warm air directly into the ice bucket, which would make them slightly moist, also too, this warm air can cause frost and ice to buildup near the warm air source...look for any unusual forms of ice and or frost leading up from the flapping door to the ice bucket. Also look for any gaps in the door gasket when closed, this warm air leak can also cause similar problems, but its most likely with the ice door. could be the door, the spring, the solenoid, or something else i wouldn't know without personal refrigerator inspection.

FROST BUILDS UP IN ICE CHUTE FROM STORAGE BIN, AND BUILD-UP BLOCKS RELEASE OF CUBES....ALSO WATER LEAKAGE OUTSIDE LIKE WARM AIR IS COMING UP FROM OUTSIDE...


As a suggestion:
Check the trap door that opens and closes each time you obtain ice cubes. The water leakage may indicate a damaged seal allowing air from outside to enter. This will cause increased frosting and blockage.
The trap door may not be closing all the way or the magnetic seal around the freezer door may be damaged or not sealing completely.

You may also need to check the thermostat.
Temperature may be set too low. If you make an adjustment allow the unit to stabilize for 12 hours before attempting another change.

Good luck!

GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. side by side is frosting in the shoot


Oddly enough, the problem is with your ice dispenser. What happens is that the door at the bottom of the ice chute is probably not sealed. This is likely because there is a solenoid that is supposed to hold that door open when you push your cup against the dispenser arm, and THEN, close it again when you release. If the chute door is not sealed, warmer, moist air from outside the refridgerator will be canstantly drawn up the chute where the moisture will freeze as frost. Gradually, this frost builds up in the chute until there is no longer enough room foir the ice to fall. You can usually look up at the chute from outside and see that the door is not sealed. In my case, I left it unsealed because the door would not open to let the ice out. It took me about 3 months to figure out that this was causing my frost-clogging problem. The solution is to replace the solenoid that is supposed to open and close the chuite door. If you remove the despenser panel, you will see that this solenoid is probably all rusted up and not working.

Frost in freezer


The door seals on the refrigerator and freezer doors will not cause the frost at the ice chute. Frost will build up where warm moist air meets cold air. Your ice chute door seal is bad, so you need to replace the ice chut door. As far as your door gaskets go, clean the gaskets and the mating surface of the refrigerator and freezer cabinet. Use a hair dryer (NOT a heat gun) to heat the door seal up anyplace the dollar bill was loose. The magnet in the gasket will pull tight to the cabinet once the heat has softened it up. Do not open the door for 30 minutes or so to allow the seals to cool. You would only want to replace the seals if they are torn.

Ice buildup around freezer door seal.


Hi, Check and see if the gasket is leaking any where. Also check and see if the door to you ice dispenser is closing. Ice/frost only builds up around the door hen there is an air leak.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further,

Thanks

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.

Frost in the freezer


IS IT ICE OR FROST? IF IT IS ICE, THE DOOR MAY HAVE BEEN LEFT CRACKED OPEN.
IF IT IS FROST, IS THIS A FROST FREE FREEZER?
IF YES, IS THE FROST ON THE BACK WALL?
IF YES, THERE IS A DEFROST FAILURE AND YOU WILL NEED TO TROUBLESHOOT THE DEFROST CIRCUIT.
IF THE FROST IS ON THE FOOD OR AROUND THE DOOR OPENING, A SEAL LEAK HAS ALLOWED WARM MOIST AIR INTO THE FREEZER AND CREATED THE FROST. CHECK THE DOOR SEAL FOR A GAP WHEN CLOSED.

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
