Water is constantly dripping down from the roof of the unit freezing all down the entire left freezer side. It's above the ice maker compartment though. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There is a good blog about a similar problem, but he explains how to get at the water inlets to check them, here it is:

If water is dripping down from the roof, it's either spraying up somewhere, or you have a bad line possibly.
First thing is to find where that water's coming from and fix it. That will probably get it working again.
Here's another good answer that you may be able to notice and fix yourself someday, just for future reference:

You could have a strange problem like coils icing up then defrosting, but I can't see how that would cause the water on the outside of the unit.
Check the coils for ice, and if you have that problem, you could have a control board, solenoid, or fan problem, which there are many good fixit articles on google if you need specifics.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

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.

No, the fridge side gets it cold from the freezer. You can turn the freezer off and use a hairdryer to thaw it out and the fridge side won't loose much cold during that time.

Your water inlet valve may need replaced to fix the leak unless the leak is a hole in the water line.

GE Profile PSS26PSTA SS freezer problem


Forget the warranty - it is only for the compressor and that is usually five years. Did you check for freezer temp - wet cubes indicates too warm up there. Water dispenser lines may be clogged.

If low temps you may have low refrigerant or a defrost mechanism not working - if not working there should be ice buildup on line entering the evaporator in back of compartment.

I have this same problem. Now, the freezer will not get cold enough, but still water runs down into the ice bin and just turns into a big solid block of ice. The water is dripping from the top of the freezer compartment. I have disconnected the water coming to the refrig to not allow it to make ice, but still happening. Please post if you have found a solution? Defroster issues?

Kitchenaid ice maker dripping and freezing down freezer shelfs


Tube sometimes freezes because of minerals in it hold one droplet at a time until buildup freezes solid. Replace tube first. Water valve allowing some droplets through can also cause this. Tube first-less expensive.

Ice drips from the ceiling of the freezer


We have had the same problem for years and had multiple repair attempts at solving the problem. The simple solution was supposedly the condensation drain line was blocked, water would then accumulate on the drain pan above the freezer, and then drip down and freeze like Niagra Falls in the winter. But that solution worked only so long before it happened again. Then Sears came and replaced some heating element. That last about 9 months and it happened again. Now we are told that this is a "defective GE model" that requires an "upgrade" kit that is over $600. Basically, GE acknowledged finally the model is a piece of junk that they designed wrong, and now long after the warranty expired, we have to pay for it. We are never buying even a GE light bulb again. Good luck with yours.
