Ice build-up in back of freezer

I have a GE side by side refrigerator. I've noticed a considerable amount of ice build-up in the back of the freezer. The ice maker seems to be functioning correctly. Water seems to be dripping from somewhere behind the ice tray (possibly the water line) and then freezes. I say this because there are small icicles. I've removed the ice but the same thing happened a few days later. Any help would be much appreciated!

I have a GE refrigerator model # GSH25KGMB WW. It is a side by side with an ice maker and water dispenser. We have had it for about 9 years now. The ice maker hasn't been working right for about 6 or 7...


you could have several problems.

Since you mentioned your ice maker not working right - first check to see if your ice maker is hot (be carefull it can burn you if it is hot) - it is possible for an ice maker to hang in the heat cycle of the cycle producing excessive heat in the freezer. If this is the case unplug the ice maker and/ or just replace it.

The refrigerator gets it cold from the freezer so if the freezer is not working right, you'll soon notice it in the refrigerator side.

You can also check to make sure the evaporator fan motor is running(in the freezer) and the condenser motor(at the compressor) as well.

Also check the back panel of the freezer for excessive frost build up.

Ok.. Just a bit of info for you if you have to sometime in the future do a parts search. This unit is the same as the Hotpoint HSS25GFTWW

Now for the icemaker problem.

When ice makers start making less ice it is usually a sign of some other problem.
1. Ice build up on the evaporator coils in the back of the freezer.
2. A slow or not functioning evaporator fan.
3. Dirty condensor coils in the back or the unit
4. A condensor fan that is running slow or not turning.
5. An automatic defrosting problem (most common problem)

If you have ice cream you probably notice that it is softer than usual. Or things in the freezer just are not as stiff as they usually are. When you notice this the freezer is warming up but the fresh food compartment is fine.

1st.. check to make sure the control panel settings are set to "0" for the freezer and "37" for the fresh food compartment.

2nd.. look for any obvious signs of ling build up in the bottom and back of the unit.

3rd .. Listen to the evaporator fan in the freezer compartment.
a. must be running full speed
b. should not sound like it is striking anything

4th.. Is the chassis near the doors hot to the touch? (should be warm not hot)
a. if hot to the touch the condensor is not getting rid of the heat due to lint build up, or slow / stuck / failed condensor fan.

5th.. there is always the very rare chance that there is an actual problem in the ice maker. (thermostat)

Ice building up in the bottom of the freezer


The water supply line is leaking.Put some paper towels down after you clean up and check real often to back track where leak is coming from,maybe your ice maker is over flowing with water.When was the last time you replaced your water filter?Could be backing up,just replaced mine,it was leaking under the fridge,mine is a Sear's Kenmore,ordered a filter from Sear's,Cost me 50 buck's,My filter is at the bottom front,your's may be inside the freezer.

suspect you have a problem with the defrost system and hence the noise with the fan. take back panel off inside the freezer and if i'm right, melt ice off with a hairdryer. get back to me to say the results if you want

SAMSUNG RS253BAWW NOT WORKING


the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)
