Built-In Ice Maker

I have an ice maker built into my freezer. The freezer is the kind that doesn't have to be defrosted, but lately when I open the door, the ice maker is covered in frost. The rest of the freezer is fine. I just noticed that the frost is even creeping out the chute when you push the level to get ice. But it's stillaking ice with no problem. Does anyone know why the ice maker would be all frosty like that?

  • We run into this from time to time with a fridge that's about 10 years old.

    We take out the tray and dump the ice, letting it all dry out. If there's frost built up in the chute, knock it out till it is clear. Then put the tray back in.

    This would last us about 6 mos before needing to do it again.

  • When was the last time you emptied the ice bin?

    Try that and see if it helps. I empty mine about 4 times a year and no problems.

  • No frost anywhere else? You might be opening the door a lot and the ice is melting a bit ?

  • Do you have a manual that came with it? If not, look one up online for your model & see if it addresses that issue. It could be what ^^^2kids, said, or it could just need a temperature adjustment.

  • The seal might be worn. You may need to replace it.
