Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
First, make sure there isn't a pile of ice in the ice bucket right below the icemaker indicating the icemaker is dripping and leaking into the bucket. Other than that, check the temperature inside the freezer and make sure it's around 0ºF. If all that checks good, then most likely the unit is staying in defrost too long allowing the cubes to slightly melt and then re-freeze. There is a white plastic bullet clipped onto the top of the silver evaporator coils (must remove the back panel inside the freezer to see this part). This sensor would need to be replaced because this is what tells the refrigerator to turn the defrost cycle off if it starts getting too warm. The part number for the sensor is WR55X10025 and it's only about $8 or so.
