Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Well you need to folliow the steps mentioned bellow to troubleshoot the issue.Remove the plastic panel over the coils in the back of the freezer and melt it out with a hair dryer or hot water .
Remove the back inside panel, find the ice plug melt it out with hot water from a baster, verify that the drain was clear, reassemble in reverse order. The issue will get resolved with no water since. By the way the drip tray might be completely full of ice - right after a defrost cycle had completed .



Let us know if you have something more to know else please accept the suggestion.

Thank You.

Why are only drawers in fridge cold & not making ice?


Contact a professional. Sounds like either your damper door is not operating correctly and not letting enough cool air from the freezer enter, or there is an air leak that is making ice form .

Very hot around freezer door from top to bottom of cabinet about 1 inch wide all the way around


That would probably be from an anti- sweat heater the designers put there to keep condensation from forming in humid climates. There may be a switch to de-energize this heater, check the owners manual.

5 years - no problems, then started to ice up . Ice forms in the bottom and will develop 1 to 1 inch thick sheet in about 10 days


Check drain under freezer coils and clean out. Look out for frozen drain instead of trash Use hot water or turn off 24 hrs if that is the case. I usually insert a phillips screwdriver dowm in the drain and
pour hot water on the screwdriver so the heat transfers downm the screwdriver to the ice clog.

Why is ice continuing to form at the bottom of our GE frig?


these units have a defrost drain that gets plugged.
you need to remove the ice from the freezer section and try to use a "turkey baster" to force water into the drain hole. it may be frozen and need to run hot water to get water to flow thru the drain.
sometimes you have to remove the drain from the back underside of the unit to clear the line. try the hot water inside first and if you cant clear the drain, then go to the back and remove the restriction from the drain line.

Ice in freezer bottom


2 things:-1)Freezer door does not close completely, leving a gap allowing outside air to come in and te humidity causes water to freeze at the bottom of the freezer. This would explainwhy is forming over 2 days.
2)If your fidge has a ice maker in the freezer and a cold water dispemser, the both these compartments water flow for the ice &for dispenser are controlled by a solenoid valve, which in turn uses a sensor to detect the quantity of water in the ice maker trays and switces off the wster supply appropriately. If the sensor in the icemaker fails to detect the right quantity, overflows very slowly so as to appear to be noticeable..............sdeep

Maytag model MSD2756GE ice maker. Water not getting to ice maker.


Why was there a need to increase the freezer temperature? Are you having temperature problems as well? If so, your ice maker has a built-in thermostat that, unless and until it is satisfied, will not cycle, thereby, making no ice. If temperature seems ok, and the buzzing is only occasional, then that buzzing is most likely the solenoid valve being energized but not passing water. This is a dual solenoid valve (one supplies the ice maker and the other supplies the dispenser) located at the bottom rear of the refrigerator.

Frigidaire, ice on floor of freexer


check to see if the defrost drain is not frozrn over or stopped up
this is the only way that water can get into the freezer
frost could and melt but dont think that i would check the drain at the bottom of the rear freezer panel if you see ice it is stopped up for sure
if all is clear there go to the ice maker, have had some that are overfilling and runnig over the ice maker into the bottom of the freezer

Water and ice will not dispense


I had the same problem. I followed stills' suggestion and used a weed **** wire to push through the water spout. The weed **** did not go past more than 2-3 inches. Then I emptied the ice bin, used the hair dryer right close to the spout both from the outside and from the inside of the freezer door. After about a couple of minutes it started working! Now, just to check if the weed **** wire will go in more than a few inches I pushed it through. Now I was able to go well past 6 inches. So, before even you start addressing this problem try pushing through a weed **** line and if it is blocked then your problem is in the door. If not, then the problem may be in the reservoir at the refrigerator side.
