I'm getting an ice build up around the auger motor in the freezer door. The door flap and spring kit has already been changed but that didn't seem to help. Any idea of what may be causing this?

Hi Brian,

The way I check it is get a flashlight and shine it down the ice dispenser chute from inside the freezer door, then look on the front side of the freezer door and see if you see light coming through.

You will need to order a new ice door kit if you see light coming through(Video Included):
