GE side by side freezer is icing up.



I took out the ice bin and it's defrosting now, but it was completely almost iced over. Anything wrong or perhaps just needs to be defrosted?

May have inbound water deflecting somehow, freezing and fowling up the mechanisms. Check the flow tube to see that it is clear of ice or any obstacle. Thawing and defrosting will likely clear the issue and you'll never know what the problem was.

PS; you could use a hair dryer to speed things along a little.

you have a water leak there. Like Bud mentioned most likely from the fill tube for icemaker, also sometimes at the point where the fill tube goes into the icemaker will build up ice and spray water all over

Ok. Thank you. I won't be able to look at it until tonight. So I would just need a new fill tube?

Maybe not, may just be a freak happening. Thaw things out and start over and see what happens. Don't be too quick to begin replacing parts just yet.

no reason to replace it, just thaw it out.
