Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
Ice is building up in the refrigerator vent on the side and some at the top. We were told to melt ice, reset the controls and even leave the door open a little while to stabilize control settings. This worked for about 2 weeks and ice built up again. The bottom vent is a chunk of ice.
Check to see if it is level front to back and side to side if not level the ice maker can run over the back and down on coil, you can use a hair dryer to defrost it s quicker. if digital set refrigerator to 38 degrees. you may have problem with defrost control.

You can turn the thermostat off for now to let the ice thaw out, if a door was left open there might not be anything wrong, but if it freezes up again sounds like you might have a bad defrost heater or defrost limit. Hope this helps

ok first of all. the refrige is in the basement. do you know what the relative humidity in the basement is?
you can check this with a humidity gauge.
