Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.

Freezer is frosting and refrigerator is warm.


As far as your freezer frosting up, sounds like a door seal problem, run your fingers along the seam of the door seal, there should be no splits/holes in the seal.
As far as the refrigerator either there is a secondary fan motor, or there is a obstruction blocking the air movement, if the freezer has a bad seal, its suspect ice is still building up.

GE 17.2 freezer on top fridge on bottom. Freezer is cold, but fridge is warm. Help!


Is there any frost buildup on the rear panel inside the freezer? If so you have a defrost problem of a bad defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timer/ control board. If no frost then you probably have a clogged defrost drain. Remove the rear panel to access drain hole.

Hi yes the flap will cause the frost, you need to replace the solenoid that controls that flap, if this is a side by side, the solenoid is behind the dispenser controls on the freezer door, you take off the control board, and then remove the little mount behind that it has 4 screws and you will see solenoid on right side, it needs to be replaced.

Frost and Ice Buildup


If everything is cooling fine and the frost is not on the back wall but just the floor at the bottom then your defrost drain is stopped up. Remove the bottom basket and clean up the ice on the floor of the freezer. Look on the back wall and you will see some more ice up a littler higher at the back. This is where the drain is. Clean all the ice out from this area too using hot water or a hair dryer. Once you find the drain hole make sure you get all this ice out of it as well. You can take a screw driver once you have melted the ice and gently push it through the drain hole. Once the hole is cleared you should be able to pour hot water freely through the hole. (It is best to turn the refrigerator off while you do this)

If the frost builds up on the evaporator coil, sounds like the defrost heater may be out. Check continuity.
If the frost buildup anywhere else - there must be an air leak somwhere. Usually it's the gasket or the ice dispenser flap stuck open.

Good luck!

1)The door gasket on the freezer door helps keep the cold air in and the warm air out. If the gasket is dirty or damaged, it may prevent the door from closing properly, which can lead to frost buildup on your freezer walls. To make sure the door is sealing, slip a dollar bill or a sheet of paper between the gasket and the freezer and then close the door. If the bill or paper pulls free with little or no resistance, the gasket isn't sealing properly. Wipe the gasket with a damp cloth to remove dirt, grease and other residue. If the gasket is damaged, replace it with a new one. Sometimes frost can accumulate on the back panel of your freezer if the door is open too long or too often. When you open the door, you let warm, humid air inside, and this condenses and freezes. Make sure there are no packages preventing the door from fully closing, and limit how often you open the door by removing what you need all at once.
2)Ventilation is important because it ensures your freezer stays cold. If something inside the freezer blocks the internal vents, the freezer may become warm, causing condensation to form on the walls, and eventually leading to frost buildup. When loading your freezer, make sure there are no items resting against the rear wall of the freezer and space the contents out as much as possible to improve ventilation.
3)Side-by-side refrigerators with a built-in ice maker may accumulate frost if the flap on the ice dispenser doesn't close properly. This allows warm air to enter the freezer side, condense and freeze, causing frost buildup over time. Open the freezer door and examine the flap inside the ice chute. It should be flush against the housing. If it is not, empty the ice bin and make sure there is no ice or debris preventing the flap from closing.
4)If your freezer door closes properly and nothing is keeping it open, frost buildup on the back panel may indicate a problem with the freezer's self-defrost system. The self-defrost system turns off the compressor for a short time every six to 12 hours so it can turn on the defrost heater. This melts any frost buildup on the freezer coils, and the water drains to the pan beneath the freezer. If this component fails, frost continues to build. Move the contents to another freezer and turn your freezer off for 24 to 48 hours to manually defrost the interior. If frost builds up again, contact a qualified appliance repair technician to inspect the defrost timer and repair the problem.

Frost buildup inside freezer door at ice dispenser


you are still not getting a seal on that flap. It sounds as if it may be warped. THe reason the frost and ice is building up is due to the flap not sealing there isn't any other reson for your problem. Good luck on your repairs

Is the trap door flap closing properly where the ice comes through the door? If open, warm air would be coming in frosting and maybe iceing things up
