One of my most disliked things in life is to have a repairman go into the home and make repeat visits. Then when they have the gall to say it is fixed and they are back for a 3rd time.... (need I say more!?!!

Melting ice in the icemaker only means that the mold heater element for initially loosening the ice cubes from the tray in the icemaker is not shutting off or the bi-metal thermostat in the icemaker is bad.

The ice maker test procedures are here:

I would print that out and hand it to the repairman the next time he walks through the door. Simply state "This may help you compete the job right." and leave it at that.

The sad news it it could take replacement of the ice maker to rid yourself of the melting ice saga.

Hopefully he can use the printout and then get the necessary parts to get you back in business real soon.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Bottom freezer has ice building up because when it defrosts it will not drain out through the back. Ice builds up to a point where I have water draining out the front of the freezer all over the floor....


I suppose the ice is building up in the drain trough under the evaporator (inside the freezer). There are two ways used to keep the trough from ice build up. It either has a heater built into it, or the defrost heater is close enough to the trough so that when the refer goes into defrost, it would melt any ice in the drain trough. Or the hose / pipe running from the trough to the drain pan it clogged, in which case you should be able to blow it clean. Note: this hose or pipe has to have a trap similar to the one under your kitchen sink. That is to prevent air from moving up, bringing undesired moisture into the fereezer.

Symptoms: Ice cubes melt, drip then refreeze causing


are you having any cooling problems? take a look at your ice cream, if you have any. does it look like it has melted and refrozen? if so, you have a cooling problem, and that is causing ice to melt, then refreeze. if you have no cooling problems, then you may have a faulty water valve solenoid, or even a faulty icemaker.

I have the exact same problem, curious if you have any answer...


If the ice melts in the ice maker I think something strange is going on with the heating element below the ice maker. It comes on only for a few seconds before the ice drops. And is used to loosen the ice. But if water continues to flow from the water control valve while the ice maker is full it has no where to go but into the freezer and refreeze. Sometimes the water control valves have trash buildup inside the valve and will not shut and allows the water to continue to flow. About the only way to solve that is replace the water control valve and place a pre-filter in the line before the water reaches the valve. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice melts water drips out of icemaker & freezes in a column


If your model is doing that I would consider looking at the defrost components. Look inside back of freezer for frost building a thin layer on the rear wall. If yes then unplug and remove the rear panel in back of freezer and defrost with a hair dryer. You have and air circulation problem or a defrost problem. Sounds like it's trying to defrost but we need to have a look at the evaporator coils in the rear behind that cover. First let me know what you find and we will go from there, Thanks Sea breeze

GE Profile Side by side- lines from custom cool covered with ice


I can't give you a solution but I can tell you that we have exactly the same situation. The freezer seems to work but we come back and water has dripped from the ice holder and formed a classic stalagtite (or is it a stalagmite?) Obviously something has melted. We have also found items in the freezer melted - yet the digital readout said it was 3 degrees! Arghhhhh. Glenn in Delaware
