It frost up because the door doesn't shut. There is a solenoid that operates the door that could have stopped working. Can you hear it?
The hinge on the door could be broken or the bracket it goes in could be broken. You'll have to look to see what's wrong.

Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

Housing tab that holds metal pin on my whirlpool fridge is broken that holds the flap shut..causing frost and ice to form on and in chute. What can be done?


Sounds like you have some crud in the line somewhere. Shut the water off, remove the filter element, and blow air in the water dispenser. If that doesn't do it, remove the line after the shut off, and blow air in before the filter.

Water leaking behind freezer wall


I would make sure the fill tube in the freezer is in the proper place on the icemaker. there is usually a slot it will rest in or on. If it is it the right place. The water valve may not be closing in time and allowing excess water to fill into the icemaker causing it to over flow. On some icemakers there is a adjustment screw on the icemaker to increase or decrease the amount of water that fills. If not I would check the valve and replace it if nessacary.

You have a duct door problem. The most common is the seal on the door goes bad or the pivot on the dispener can break off. Both allow warm air inside thus your moisture. I hope this helps.

Icemaker flap door doesn't shut completely resulting in in frost layers forming on and around ice bucket and water leaking into the drip tray and ice forming on freezer door near the freezer door.


Hi,
I found 9 different model to your model number, but all the unit use the same dispenser components.
Below there is a picture of the dispenser, item number 4,5,6,7 and 8 all deal with the working parts.
4 - return spring 5 - pin 6 - dispenser door 7 - Door Mechanism Assy (this one has a heater, not really needed) 8 - Door Delay kidlmo_2.gif but in looking up history, I found a complete door kit that should solve the issue. They came out with a part 8201649 and this part contains all those item and a bracket that can fix the broken tabs that the pin sits in. That was more common.
Back a couple of years ago they stop telling customer that the repair was not possible when the bracket to the pin support (mount) would break.
I hope this helps..

MY FREZER HAS FROST AROUND THE DOOR AND MOLD IS GROWING AROUND IT


You need to replace the door gasket. It's leaking air causing the frost.

Icicle are forming around icemaker port inside of freezer compartment drips seem to come from around inmaker feed water area.


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Bottom of ice maker is frosted up & leads to food getting frost


Sounds like your freezer is pulling outside air into the freezer from the dispenser door or around the door seals. This could be a defrost problem beginning as this is moisture remaining inside the freezer compartment and not being taken out during defrost. So it may be a good idea to look into the back of the freezer and see if there is frost forming also on the rear wall. If yes you will need to manually defrost by unplugging the refrigerator and removing the rear panel in the back of freezer to expose the evaporator coil. If frozen over I want you to defrost with a hair dryer until we can have a look at the defrost heater below these coils. The heater in your model PSS26MRSS has glass around the heating elements and will be easy to see if the element is burned out. If burned out the defrost heater part number WR51X10055 and the defrost thermostat part number WR50X10068 should be replaced. Let me know if you are ready to begin or if this is helpful. If by chance these 2 parts look OK then we will need to look over the main control board for burn marks or signs of heat damage. I'll be here if you need me Thanks, Sea Breeze

The flap on my water and ice dispenser is forming ice inside and outside of the ice container. The flap is not closing. How do I fix this problem?


check closely the flap. see if the spring pulling it to close shut is still ok. check the seal of the flap. that seal should not be broke or chipping. it should seal tight to the plastic where it is seating.

if there is even a small opening, frost would accumulate because of the air coming in from the damage flap. this frost would accumulate until the flap itself would no longer seal the opening.

tnx 4 uisng fixya,

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.
