Inside door where ice dispenser is located, there is a frost build up. Just started doing this a couple of days ago. HELP PLEASE.
Answer Doug, You will need to check the 8201649 ice door kit and paddle W10152854. Make sure the door closes and seals against the dispenser body and make sure the paddle isn't cracked or broken and holding the chute door partially open. This will allow the room air to enter the freezer and cause the area to frost up.
The screws securing the solenoid, a screw holding the door recess crank and a screw holding the ice dispenser mounting assembly have rusted. What are the appropriate screws to replace?
The screws for the dispenser solenoid will be part number WR01X10649 and will need 3. The screw that holds the housing in is part number WR01X10019 and there are 4 of these required. The screw that holds the ice door in place is WR01X10656 and need 2.
My ice dispenser is not working properly. It makes ice fine but it won't dispense all of the time. It seems to bind up and make a humming sound (although not all the time). I took the tray out & held the light button down & pushed the ice lever and the motor spins fine.
Answer Hello Chris,
The motor is probably freezing up. This is a common occurrence in this design. You need to check the ice door for any signs of an air leak. Check that the door seals are contacting and sealed all around both doors. If no problems are located, you should set the freezer temperature to one number warmer and the issue will most likely not recur.
