We have an ice...

We have an ice buildup, inside the refrig by the ice maker and outside the refrig directly behind where the ice maker is located. How can this be corrected?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Frigidare Gallery, FGHB2866PF2, it's about 5 1/2 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Sorry for the delay I`m a volunteer fireman and had a accident call I was called out on .

This ice build up is it in the fresh food section or in the freezer section .

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

And would you say this ice is from the icemaker leaking or from something else?

In the fresh food section. Yes I believe it is from the ice maker leaking.

is the icemaker making full size cubes at this time?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

This will tell me if the icemaker is leaking water out or if during a fill mode it is overfilling , which would be a fill valve issue.
