Freezer compartment accumulating snowy ice

About a year ago ice starting forming in the freezer compartment, always in the same location next to the ice cube bin. When I open the door to the fridge, the ice scrapes and falls to the floor. I had a repairment out to fix the problem, and he told me that I needed to dump the ice cubes out every couple of weeks and that should take care of the problem. It did not. I do live in Texas and it's very humid here. Can anyone suggest what might be causing the problem?

Sounds like an air leak. the ref. is sucking air in and condensing and freezing on that spot. check the gaskets really good.

My bottom drawer freezer is accumulating a sheet of ice


Your defrost drain line is clogged or frozen so the defrosted water is leaking into the freezer compartment and freezing into a ice layer in the next cooling cycle. Get your defrost drain line unclogged.

There is normally a "thing" that controls the auto defrost I had a freezer that started so it this out of the blue. Some how that "thing" got unplugged. It was in the freezer behind a panel in the back by the light.

Ice maker flooded top freezer compartment


It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze

GE GSS25WGMCC, Ice Forming On Freezer Interior Surfaces


i had the same problem and i replaced the defrost heater and it worked fine for about one month but now having the same issue. Most of the time from what I have heard it is the defrost heater (about $60 part). I might have another issue going on with mine like a defrost thermostat. Your defrost heater is right under the panel on the inside of the freezer section. remove white panel on back side of freezer section and remove two screws and two wires and replace it and you should be fine.

Ice is forming in the bottom of the freezer compartment, and water forms under the fridge freezer. Also the comperssor does not always respond to the freezer setting when the stat is turned...


compressor may not start for quite a time even if you change the stat setting. this is deliberate.

ice on floor of the freezer is caused by the drain being blocked - probably with ice. remove the back panel inside the freezer and melt the ice off with a hairdryer. you will have to clear the drain itself with hot water - needs a bit of patience.

this can just happen with time but you may have a fault on the defrost system which is causing it
