We have a Frigidaire side-by-side fridge/freezer combo for about 6 years, and it’s been working wonderfully. I went a considerable time without dispensing the ice, and decided to push the dispenser… no result. When I opened the freezer, there was frost and ice all around the dispenser mechanism. So I pulled out the dispenser, removed the ice, and put it all back - everything worked fine for a day or so, but then the ice returned.
It will dispense, but it’s crushed ice instead of the usual cubes. And it makes that godawful noise (presumably, the motor coming to life and knocking the ice loose. I can’t imagine that there’s water leaking. The freezer is pretty full, mostly with microwaveable veggies.
Any ideas what might be causing this? While there’s ice in the receptacle, I’ve turned off the ice maker so it won’t accumulate. The tray is not quite flush - it’s crooked by a few centimeters - but that’s how it’s always been.
Thanks for any suggestions!
