Icicles in Freezer

There are icicles forming in my freezer. It looks like there might be water collecting on the ceiling of the freezer and causing it to freeze throughout the racks. Ice is on all food items and it's on all the shelves.what could cause this problem?

It is on the recommended setting for temperature, and it happened over night last night. Any Ideas???

GE MONOGRAM Icemaker: ice melts and re-freezes, resulting in a large frozen piece of ice in the bin


Are you sure icicles are coming from ice bin? Remove ice bin and look above it and see if they are coming from ceiling area of freezer. Side by side monograms have had problems with drains causing water to back-up into freezer. This causes icicles from ceiling. If that,s the case you have to purchase the kit for this. This is not an easy fix and can take a couple hours, even for a pro who's done it before.

Icicles in freezer compartment


you can do the dollar check to see if indeed the gasket is the problem,thats what it sounds like. close dollar in door and pull out slowly,you should feel some resistance.also at the top corner of door you will find 3 screws at the hinge, loosen the screws a couple of turns and you will be able to adjust the fit of the door ,move it alittle to make sure it is square with the fridge,this may help then re-tighten screws.

Ice maker is overflowing and causing icicles in Kitchenaid KSRS25IHSS02 side by side refrigerator. Trying to find location of water flow adjustment set screw.


Hello,

The adjustment screw is under the cover on the front of the icemaker...it is only a very small adjustment and by adjusting it very likely it will have no bearing on stopping the icicles from forming on the i/m but instead what the problem is,is the water inlet valve is not fully closing. This tip i wrote covers the problem with the water valve and why its causing icicles in the freezer.

Inside the freezer has bunch of icicles and the freezer temperature fluctuate and it does not stay constant?


Your evaporator fan motor might be bad. This causes the icicles. Listen for the fan motor turning next time, you may want to hold down door switch.

Icemaker leaking causing icicles


Is it overfilling with water? If so, it may be an problem with the fill valve leaking slightly. I say slightly because if it were a large leak, the freezer would have frozen puddles in it. Also check the water chute to be sure the water is all going into the freeze tray. Sometimes they can work loose.

If the seam is leaking, there could be a crack in the housing - not sure that's repairable - sometimes epoxy will work (5 minute, 2 part) but it can be difficult for glue to hold on the type of plastic used in an ise maker housing.

Freezer Door


Defrost to get rid of icicles (temporarily). shut the door on a piece of paper , and try to pull it out . The gasket should be tight enough with the door closed that the paper will resist being pulled out, or not come out at all. Check all around the door, it might be bad in just a small area. A bad gasket means warm air enters, cold are exits, and where the two meet, condensation forms, which inside become stalagtites (I mean icicles). The service guy should have checked it, but hey, who would expect a new appliance not to work properly? If the gasket checks out ok, maybe insulation was not installed properly in the door, which would cause temp variation. countrycurt0
