Frost forms on the inside opening of the chute for the water/ice dispenser. Also frost on the exit chute from the ice cube tray. The frost is present a day or so after I clean it off.

The door flap which releases the ice , on the door , is not closing completely .Usually this is caused by a rusted plunger so both the solenoid and plunger will have to be replaced , These parts are located behind the dispenser board so be sure to remove the top freezer door hinge cover and unplug the plug there , to remove all power going to the door , before attempting this repair . I think the part number is WR62X10055 for the kit .
When it doesn't close , it lets warm air into the freezer and causes frost on the dispenser AND on the ice bin outlet . Also , using 10 glasses or more , of crushed ice a day can cause this .

    I can ssee that the flap is not closing. Will this cause the water hose to freeze also?

My Kenwood frost free Fridge Freezer KFC60SS15 has got quite a bit of ice on the drawers


Look at the door on the ice cube chute. If there is a cube stuck in it holding it open, ice will form on interior surfaces of the freezer. The door flapper must close tightly.

Frost inside the ice dispenser chute and the ice cube dispenser seems "stuck" on crush mode instead of dispensing full cubes.


The stuck on crush mode , is caused by ice frosted in front of the ice bin , blocking the ice bin flap from opening , when calling for cube ice . Removing the ice bin and cleaning or defrosting completely , will solve this problem , AFTER , resolving the frost in shoot problem .
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes any power , going to the door . If no plug there , remove the bottom kick plate , by removing the screw on each side in the front , and disconnect the receptical from the wires comming from the bottom of the freezer door .
Remove the dispensor control board , by prying , or pulling , from the bottom of the board . Disconnect the 3 plugs to the board . You should now see the white dispensor cover , being held on by 4 screws . Remove these screws , and slide the cover out .
In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger , with the door flap arc , inserted into the plunger . Usually rust inhibits the movement of the plunger , keeping the door flap from closing completely .
Remove the 3 screws holding the plunger and solenoid ( part number WR62X10055 ) and replace . Cleaning will not help , due to rust will return .

GE GSS25 continuely has frost on cube chute preventin cubes from discharging. Have had doors replaced under recall but problem came back.


I had the exact same problem. My neighbor has the same refrigerator, and told me that there is a solenoid in the door, behind the panel where you select between water, crushed or cubed ice. You can carefully remove that panel to expose the solenoid, which is on the right side of the dispenser water line. I have the model GE GSS25. The plunger on the solenoid gets rusty buildup on the outside of it from the moisture and water splashing from the dispenser. You might try wiping the exterior of the solenoid, and working it up and down so that it moves freely. If not, it's a cheap replacement part you can order from GE. The solenoid shuts the trap door which opens when you get ice from the dispenser. If the solenoid plunger does not move freely, then the trap door hangs open, and warm moist air enters the freezer through the ice shute, causing frost.

ICEMAKER FROSTING UP


Try to take some ice from the dispenser. Remove the glass and open the freezer door to look down inside the dispenser chute and see if the trap door has re-closed. If it remains open warm, humid air will enter the ice bucket and gradually freeze the cubes together. Trap door remaining open is generally caused by a rusted electrical coil which pulls the door open electrically then sticks, unable to re-close. Coil is located behind the panel that operates the dispenser. Relatively easily accessible.

Frost forming around ice dispenser inside side by side Fridge


The presence of frost indicates that the dispenser(ice) probrably isn't closing all the way once you get ice. This allows warm air to rise up, condense and form frost. In all likelihood the solenoid that controls the opening and closing is bad and needs to be replaced.

Ice dispenser in door clogged up or frozen


I would contact Hotpoint direct for this one. It sounds like a design fault to me.

What I think may be going on is that the cubes are melting too much, then refreezing lower down.

Set your freezer to -18, and the fridge to +2 and see if that changes things any.

Check seals in that area. Where is the moisture coming from to generate the frosting? - Is the location high in humidity?

Ice Jam in Chute - Whirlpool IDI SxS


first check would be to see if the flapper door is closing all the way in the dispenser area. best way is to remove the ice bucket and shine a flashlight from the front up into the disp door area and look for light around the door from inside the chute.

another check would be to make sure the door delay mechanism is connected an not allowing the dispenser door to close to fast trapping a cubes in the door and causing an air leak in the chute..

Keep in mind if you use alot of crushed ice frost build up is faster than with just cubed.
