Not quite sure what is going on:

Code Er dh popped up out of now where. Ice maker quit as well as water distribution. Also "hot condensing tube" around doors making fridge extremely hot to touch.

So far:
Removed back cover and vacuumed condenser, fan etc. and made sure fan cycles.
Removed cover in back of freezer to check for ice, none.
Removed ice maker and checked for ice, none.
Made sure fridge was level, slightly back.
Freezer air cycling up to ice maker, via door tubes, plentiful and cold.

Unit will seemingly run and make one batch of ice okay and stay code free for 3-4 hours.... then code appears, loose water, ice and gets hot again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The reason that condenser tubing around the door is getting that hot means your condenser fan motor is either not running, or running to slow.

Take a video of it please so we can see the condenser fan running, then upload the video to Youtube or share it on Google Drive or Dropbox or Microsoft OneDrive.

Jake,

I apologize...
I can fix a fridge, a car, a vacuum but had a hell of a time posting a video. I went ahead and purchased a new fan, the old one worked but was stoppable with the slightest resistance. Once I installed the new one I noticed the speed was higher and there was no stopping this one! Its been 9 days, no codes, no heat and happy wife.

THANK YOU JAKE!!
