SOURCE: Frost buildup on ice/water dispenser

Your problem is definatly caused by air entering freezer either from the ice shute flap or door not sealing correctly, try putting a bright torch in frezzer and closing door look for light escaping around edge of door, if you can see the light then change door seal, the fault cannot be anything else.

From your description, you have a bad evaporator fan motor. The part number for a replacement motor is #5304445861.This is not a direct replacement but is more reliable.Remove everything in the freezer, take off the back panels and you will see the fan.
If there is a large frost buildup on the coils and the fan is turning you have a defrost problem. If that is the case, please call me at 334-347-0000 and I will walk you through it.

SOURCE: pan that catches water under freezer side overflows

That is pretty unusual unless you live in a humid area. Some units have a switch that allows you to adjust for this and it simply defrosts every 12 instead of 24 hours. Also, the fan that cools the coils under the unit may not be running at normal speed since the warmth of the coils and the fan generally suffice to return the accumulated water into the air. You are right to check the door seals since if these are no longer seating well, external humidity will be gathered by the cooling coils and subsequently become the water collected below that is plaguing you.

Ice maker leaking


Are you sure it's the ice maker that's leaking? We have this model & ours accumulates a HUGE iceberg in the bottom of the freezer, but the water seems to be coming out of the back, at the bottom of the back panel, where the vents are.

Remove door and icemaker from bottom freezer model 59673914200 -- icemaker wont turn


The ice maker switch had come unattached due to excess ice buildup, and frozen to the ice pack. The ice in the ice maker had also frozen into a solid block due to not being able to rotate. After removing the drawer trays and protecting the frozen food, turning off the refridgerator, I used a hair drier to melt and remove the ice from the ice maker, gave it time to dry out, -- No gears wer stripped,- the ice maker now works normally.

Neverending ice cystals buildup in freezer


Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.
