Question about GE GSS25JEMWW Side by Side

Gss25wgsd bb model number

The freezer compartment continues to ice over. Water droplets are all over food and ice clumps together. Frozen water droplets are on walls and food. Once ice maker is off, freezer works fine. Adjusted temperature but that doesn't seem to make much difference. Warranty is over and service call is way too much. Help. Thank you.

Mick...there may be any number of reasons for this. First, check for a bad door gasket. It must be clean and fit snugly around the unit. Use a piece of typing paper about 2 inches wide to pull through. It should pull with some resistance anywhere you try. If it is gappy, humidity can leak in.

Next, make sure the condenser coils are clean. Third, how cold is your freezer? Is should be about 5 degrees or so if it is kept closed for about 6 hours or more.

Is the ice maker clean and not overflowing? Many units can be removed and cleaned out.

You may have other issues...start with these.

What causes ice build-up on the floor of the ice-maker/freezer compartment.

Hello, My name is Peter. I am a former Sears Home Services Tech.

You have a frozen/blocked drain at the back bottom of your freezer. This is a common problem that happens over time. I assume you have a side by side? I have found pieces of corn... The normal repair is to take the lower back freezer wall off, using hot water or a steamer defrost the drain hole, then install a hot wire from the defrost heater into the drain hole. That's if I were there.
Your cooling coil also has a heater. Every 8-10 hours your freezer will shut down for about 10 minutes to defrost. When it defrost the condensate (water) drips down to the drain. If the drain is frozen or plugged the water accumulates in the bottom of your freezer section. One water droplet will hang up in the drain and then another until the drain is frozen.
Here is what YOU DO. Using a hair dryer melt the ice on the bottom of your freezer. NO NOT USE A Hammer or anything like that. You will crack the liner and then have some serious problems.
Use a plastic spatula to help lift the sheets of ice out. Put the hair dryer toward the bottom back where the drain is located. Continue to melt this ice until you see the drain hole. Once found, pore warm water into the back tray. Try to collect this water and repeat the process until the water goes down the drain.

If you have any questions call me 443-306-1362. I will expect a Christmas card.

LG French door bottom freezer unit is only 5 years old. Bottom freezer suddenly not keeping food frozen. Ice cubes are melting, ice cream is soft, and there is water on bags of frozen food in top basket...

You have a defrost condensate drain blockage where all the water from defrost remains inside the freezer compartment and causes the symptons you are having. I cannot tell you how to remove every model numbers freezer rear panel but I think that if you study over my link here=> Leaking Refrigerators and this link HERE you will get an idea of what to do. I am here to answer any questions, Sea Breeze

Freezer is not defrosting

1. Remove all of the food from inside the freezer and place it into the ice chest. Use more than one ice chest, if necessary. Cover the food with ice from a 10 lb. bag of ice. Alternatively, place all of the food from your freezer into the refrigerator compartment, packed tightly together.
2. Place one or two 10 lb. bags of ice into one or two large bowls inside the refrigerator compartment to keep the food chilled. Keep the door to the refrigerator tightly closed and avoid opening it during the freezer defrosting process.
3. Unplug the unit and leave the freezer door open.
4. Let the freezer defrost overnight or for at least eight hours.
5. Use the towels to wipe up the melted ice.
6. Plug in a hair dryer and direct it to the interior of the freezer to melt any remaining ice from the walls and door. Be sure to direct it into the vents of the freezer, too.
7. Wipe up any water from ice melted with the hair dryer from inside and around the freezer.
8. Plug the freezer back into the outlet, and return food still solidly frozen to the freezer compartment from the ice chest or refrigerator. Use any thawed foods within a day or two or discard.

Water in freezer

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

We really need just a little more information please.

1. With or without Icemaker
2. Temperature in freshfood and freezer compartment normal?
i.e no frozen food in the fresh food compartment or ice cream getting soft. Slow making ice etc. (if installed)

Without a model number it is difficult to speak directly about your unit. That infromation would be important in order for us to better help you.

Speaking generally.... Top freezer models have the evaporator coils in the back of the freezer compartment.

If the evaporator drain gets clogged, each time the unit defrosts you would see water sheeting from the back of the freezer to the front.

Also if the door seal is torn or has come loose from the door then condensation will form in the area of the damaged door seal so the water source then would be near the damaged door seal.

If there is an icemaker installed it can be leaking or over filling.

If you respond please provide a model number.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but

Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

Kitchenaid ice maker dripping and freezing down freezer shelfs

Tube sometimes freezes because of minerals in it hold one droplet at a time until buildup freezes solid. Replace tube first. Water valve allowing some droplets through can also cause this. Tube first-less expensive.

Refrigerator does not turn off

The water fill pipe in freezer can be defrosted with a hair dryer. I do need to know if your refrigerator is defrosting normally about every 10 hours. If it does not defrost the fresh food compartment temps will increase. Your refrigerator has an adaptive defrost assembly located in the fresh food compartment near the thermostat. Let me know if the refrigerator continues to run and temperature increase.
Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice box

In the LG side by sides they have developed a new ice cup tray. The tray has a little wall so that the water stays in the tray and doesn't go onto all of the ice causes it to stick together.

Nested Problem?

Marty, sounds like the refrigerator is not going in defrost cycle.There could be several factors causing the ice buildup. Symptoms of this are higher freezer and cold food temps If you could look around the door panel for a model number, Example:106.48062890 I may be able to help you solve the problem.
Causes could be defrost timer, defrost element, element wiring connections, etc. Let me know , Thanks, Sea Breeze
