You cannot - this is a design issue that really cannot be fixed since the arm that senses the ice level cannot get caught up in the bucket or it would break every time you opened the freezer. Any fridge brand of this type has the same issue.

How do I completely open a partially opened freezer drawer?


Hello Laura;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Refrigerators with freezer drawers are nice up until the time that you need to call a service technician, and find out it cost about 40% more than a top or side by side refrigerator to repair.

If you leave your freezer drawer not completely closed, outside warm air enters your freezer and you get Ice build up on the rail system. It is difficult to see if the freezer drawer is completely closed because the fresh food section doors above block the view.

If you can pull the drawer out part of the way, use a hair dryer directly on the rail system on both sides in a effort to melt the restricting ice. Take your time. This may take several hours at which time you will push and pull on the drawer every 30 minutes until you break the rail system free from ice restriction.

After you have the door free, with a kitchen spatula and a hair dryer heat the gasket around the freezer door gasket pulling the gasket out to repair a possible crushed door gasket and not having a goo seal.

I have gone on service calls where the rail system ice was so built up, all I could do was to advise the customer to unplug the refrigerator for 36-24 hours to clear the ice from the rail system.

This is a common problem with drawer freezers. Next time get either a top mount refrigerator freezer or a side by side. Lower repair cost and more reliable.

Feeler arm on ice maker prevents freezer drawer from opening


Hi, There is no adjustment on the level arm other then bending it. Is it posible that something snagged it as the drawer was being pulled out and bent it? The arm should collapse all the way down tothe side of the icemaker and level with the bottom of the icemaker.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can help further.

Water leaking - GE Profile Refrigerator, Model: TPX21PRX


Check to see if the drain at the bottom of your freezer is plugged. When the refrigerator goes on defrost, the water has to go somewhere. Look below the coils in the freezer section and see if there is ice in the drain.
