Flap not closing completely causing ice build up in freezer

  • Customer: Victor from Aylett VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Slip the front cover off by gently pulling down, carefully un-plug the wire connectors (x3), remove 4 screws and remove paddle assembly. 2 screws hold the flap on and 3 hold the solenoid. Replace the screws with stainless so they won't rust. I tried coating the solenoid in lithum grease to prevent rust, onlt time will tell if it works.

Some screws was rusted so I take more time.

Removed the Control Panel and the outside of the Dispenser Outlet. Removed the Flapper Door and the solenoid. Replaced both parts with new parts, and re-assembled. The pin, at the top of the Solenoid was badly worn and the plastic arm was very rough on the surface adjacent to the worn pin.

Bad solenoid - ice flap didn't close

The video was clear and the repair looked easy. My only problem was that the trim piece that had to be removed first was very hard to get off. I called PartSelect and ask if I was doing it correctly. (I didn't want to damage anything else) The person I talked to said that they don't provide technical service help but that he'd look at the diagram of the refrigerator to see if he could help me. He was able to confirm that I just had to apply more force to get it off. With the aid of a putty knife I was able to pry it off. After that I followed the video instructions and it was easy to make the repair. Things went back together easily and the problem was resolved.

Simple fix with information furnished online with the Dispenser Door Solenoid Assembly. Unplug fridge, remove selection panel by pulling out gently at the bottom until it releases then unplug the 3 connectors, remove next panel by unscrewing the 4 corner screws, then remove the solenoid by loosening the top screw and removing the two on the bottom, wipe all clean and reassemble in reverse with new solenoid hanging piston over ice door flapper lever first then sliding it into solenoid as you move it into position. Easy fix....$35 hopefully extended the life of a faithful older fridge for a few more years since it work/looks new.

Not only was your parts selection very easy to understand,
The Video shows exactly how to install that part.
This was So Easy to repair. I thought I would have to take
the door apart from the inside but the repair was completed
with the door closed and took about 10 to 15 min. to complete.

Ice dispenser door not closing due to corroded solenoid

Followed instructions from Parts Select Videos about how to replace solenoid & dispense door/flapper. Only a couple of changes from the video with this model: 1) You can remove the control panel by pushing on 2 tabs located under panel and in front of dispense chute with 2 small screwdrivers, and you do not need to remove the black trim around the dispenser. 2) It would be great if each part, especially the solenoid, included replacement screws since mine were corroded and not easily found at the local hardware store. I would definitely pay a couple of $ extra to add screws to the order, or just have them included in the package with the solenoid.

Ice Dispenser door would not close after use

I followed the directional video on "PartSelect" website. The video was very easy to follow and showed exactly how to easily replace the dispenser door solenoid assembly. I knew it was the solonoid assembly because the I could see the plunger that controls the opening/closing motion of the dispenser door sticking inside the old solenoid. The "PartSelect" website is very user friendly and very easy to use. The part ordered, delivered by standard delivery, arrived the day after it was ordered. I only wish all repairs could be as straight forward and easy as this one, thanks to "PartSelect" and some limited mechanical/electrical knowledge on my part. This was absolutely a "do it yourself" repair at a very significant savings over using an appliance repair service.

I followed instructions from a video. I pulled off the front panel, then the circuit board unit. Next I removed the Solenoid Assembly and installed the new one. I replaced everything and tested the water dispenser with no success. I assume the solenoid assembly was ok so therefore I need to get the circuit board tested.

Frost build up in ice chute

Simple repair. On this 2004 model the button panel is removed by pulling lower part of panel out and down. No need to remove bezel. Remove four screws and a quick switch out of parts! I added an extra half hour to install as I cleaned the flapper area, ice shoot, etc.

Flapper in door for ice dispenser would not close.

I repaired IAW the PartSelect video. Very easy. One thing that should be mentioned in the troubleshooting process, is to check the retention spring on the flapper. That spring could come off and also cause the flapper not to close.

Ice maker door was not closing. Snow piled up enough to fall when door was opened.

Turned power off at breaker. Took off front panel on the door. Unscrewed the panel where the electrical parts were plugged in. Then you could unscrew the old solenoid assembly and install the new one. Cleaned around the Ice shute since some mold was there. Put all back together. We watched the video from you tube about 5 times!!
