Leave your door open for a few minutes until it melts a little bit and when it gets melted enough to get it off the door, take it off and then wipe it dry with a clean towel so it won't happen again.

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

My ice maker is making ice, but it won't come out of the door. It gets stuck outside of the icemaker in the door. There is a flap that doesn't seem to be opening.


The units I have seen which have a flap, if water gets in from some drippage, it can freeze and make things get stuck. You might try some hot water on a small towel against the outside of the flap to see if that would melt any ice accumulation, or if you put a small pan under the flap hole on the outside to catch runoff and dribble a bit of hot water from the inside hole down spout to melt any ice that might free it up if that is causing it to stick.

You also might be able to fish out the ice from the inside and give flap a push to open it, or use a plastic spoon or spatula to push it through. While you might be tempted to melt the ice with a hair dryer, don't do that. It could be very dangerous if water suddenly spewed out and got into the heating element or motor and cause a fire or electric shock. Stick to not water and plastic to try and push it from the inside outward. Usually the mechanism to grind the ice is up above inside the freezer, not in the hole in the door.

If the door got stuck because its hinges came loose broke you might have to call a service center to come and replace it if you are unable to yourself.

Be careful and don't try anything if you are unsure of yourself.

Recall ge refrigerator


you can do one of 3 things,if its still under warranty call for service,however if its not there is a heater element that installs in the water dispenser tube inside the door and wired to the dispenser circuit board at your expense of about $50.00 plus installation charge,or take a syringe and fill it with hot water and inject it up through the dispenser tube at the door spout till it melts the ice in the tube or use a handheld hair dryer VERY CAREFULLY so as not to melt the plastic tube and only melt the ice blockage,and live with it that way

Freezer too dry


Why is this question in camcorders?

Water can evaporate from ice. This is called "sublimation".

As a result, ice cubes shrink, especially in frost-free refrigerators, which are often very dry. Frost free models have a fan that circulates air internally so the moist air gets blown out, rather than

Freezers get condensation from moist air that gets inside when you open the door. Frost free models cycle off every few hours, and warm up a bit (a heating coil) to melt the condensation and then they blow that out so it won't form frost. They also blow out any vapour from the sublimating ice cubes. Then they cool down again.

Freezer is not defrosting


1. Remove all of the food from inside the freezer and place it into the ice chest. Use more than one ice chest, if necessary. Cover the food with ice from a 10 lb. bag of ice. Alternatively, place all of the food from your freezer into the refrigerator compartment, packed tightly together.
2. Place one or two 10 lb. bags of ice into one or two large bowls inside the refrigerator compartment to keep the food chilled. Keep the door to the refrigerator tightly closed and avoid opening it during the freezer defrosting process.
3. Unplug the unit and leave the freezer door open.
4. Let the freezer defrost overnight or for at least eight hours.
5. Use the towels to wipe up the melted ice.
6. Plug in a hair dryer and direct it to the interior of the freezer to melt any remaining ice from the walls and door. Be sure to direct it into the vents of the freezer, too.
7. Wipe up any water from ice melted with the hair dryer from inside and around the freezer.
8. Plug the freezer back into the outlet, and return food still solidly frozen to the freezer compartment from the ice chest or refrigerator. Use any thawed foods within a day or two or discard.

Icicles forming from melting ice from ice maker


hi this might help you:

*make sure that the seal indeed still seal well enough...
*the older the fridge the more common this is

i don't really know much about this, but just check that it's cold enough inside like check if it changes when you change it from eg 4 to 7, and that the sealing is fine, and that your door is lined out good, also important that last thing offcourse, cause if it seems to shut good, but the seals arent in the right position compared to the other side (the 'fridge-walls' :p) they won't seal ofcourse...

I hope this is useful, and greets.

HOW DO I DEFROST FREEZER


Hi,

Most modern freezers don't need to be defrosted, but should be washed out and cleaned periodically. Following are steps for defrosting freezers that need it -generally when ice builds up to a thickness between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch.

  1. Step 1 Turn the freezer off. Controls may be inside the refrigerator.
  2. Step 2 Remove all food from the freezer and store in an ice chest while you are defrosting.
  3. Step 3 Remove ice in the freezer compartment. This can be done by: a) letting the freezer door stand open until ice melts; b) putting a pan of hot water in the freezer compartment and closing the door, then checking for melting ice and reheating the water every 10 to 15 minutes; c) using a hair dryer by aiming warm air at ice in freezer until it melts.
  4. Step 4 Pick up ice and water as it melts with a dishcloth or sponge and deposit into sink.
  5. Step 5 Use a sponge or dishcloth and a bowl of warm water to thoroughly wipe out inside of freezer once the freezer is cleared of ice.
  6. Step 6 Turn the freezer back on, close the door and let run for 10 to 15 minutes before returning food to the freezer.
  7. Step 7 Put food back into freezer and close the door.

Ice machine makes ice but doesn't dispense when the lever is pres


I would check for an electric "flap" that opens & closes when ice lever is depressed. My GE has one and it has been fouled before causing the ice to be stuck inside the door. Hope this helps!
