Question about Whirlpool ED2FHSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice maker frosts over on the chute

The chute frosts over on the inside and the ice jams and the door opens hard because of the build up. We clean all the frost off, dump all the ice, and it starts over. We have a thermometer in the freezer and fridge and both say the temp is okay.

    We had a service man come out and he replaced the rubber flap. Problem solved! Thanks so much.

This would indicate a problem with the ice chute door seal. Have it serviced. Air leakage would cause the frost-ice buildup.

Frost builds up on the inside of the ice bucket and the ice seems to be melting together. Water runs out of the bottom of the ice bucket both inside and through the front.


Make sure the ice Chute door is closing all the way usually when you have frost build up in that area the ice Chute door is stuck open and it's going to have to be repaired

Frost builds up on outside of ice maker


The little door that opens and lets the ice fall into Your cup is not closing all the way, allowing cold air to escape from Your Freezer and causing frost to build up. Simply look up at it or open the Freezer door and place a lit flashlight in the ice chute so You can see where the light is shining through the ice dispenser at. There should be a build-up of ice there that is keeping the "trap door" from closing all the way. Clean that off and You should be as good as new.

Frost builds up on the chute betwen the icemaker and the door dispenser unit.


I need you to confirm your model number. Is MZD2665HE correct? The problem is very likely a broken 12565502 Dispenser Door Spring or more providing you have the correct model number. There may be a kit if the model number is different.Thanks, John Tripp Appliance 911

Ice dispenser frost build up - Amana refrigirator


This sounds like your ice may be melting and freezing around the chute. You may need to replace that rubber gasket on the chute. Otherwise, if you use a lot of crushed ice, that will build up badly on the chute and you can manually clean that off. I hope this helps you!

Frost in freezer


The door seals on the refrigerator and freezer doors will not cause the frost at the ice chute. Frost will build up where warm moist air meets cold air. Your ice chute door seal is bad, so you need to replace the ice chut door. As far as your door gaskets go, clean the gaskets and the mating surface of the refrigerator and freezer cabinet. Use a hair dryer (NOT a heat gun) to heat the door seal up anyplace the dollar bill was loose. The magnet in the gasket will pull tight to the cabinet once the heat has softened it up. Do not open the door for 30 minutes or so to allow the seals to cool. You would only want to replace the seals if they are torn.

Freezer keeps running


yes,you need to pull the front panel on the ice maker off to get to the solinoid that opens and closes the flap,with the flap vranked open you are letting cold air out and warm air in and that makes frost,if you don't want to try and fix it your self put a cloth towel in the chute to block the air lose and call an honest local appliance repair person-mike

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.

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over


Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.
