I ordered the ice door repair kit and installed it about 6 months ago it worked fine until about a week ago now I am getting frost build up around the shut on the inside of freezer and on the ice bin what do I need to do to fix this problem? it seems like the ice door is letting air in I taped plastic over the front of dispenser and the frost stops.
Answer Hello Steve,
This sounds like the door is not striking the opening exactly right. You should shine a flashlight in from the front and look in from the inside side of the door. If light can get through, so can air. If the door is not sealing correctly, the frost is formed from the humidity in the room temperature air that is coming in to take the place of the heavier cold air that is dropping through the air leak. If you installed the broken hinge tab ice door kit 8201756, it will have to be removed and re-positioned so the ice door seats correctly. You will probably have to order another kit since it self-adheres and will most likely will not come back off easily and it will probably be damaged during removal.
