Ice flap was sweating

  • Customer: Susan from Charlottesville VA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I decided to replace my ice flap while replacing the solenoid. It was easily done while the face plate and control panel were already off. The problem I encountered was that the flap did not seal properly, thus I ended up with frost in the ice chute and on the ice box so the ice would not come out. Also, the water dispenser would not work because it froze up from the cold air coming out of the ice flap. I got another flap, but had the same problem. Finally adjusted the spring that helps hold the flap closed. That helped but there is still not a tight seal.

Ice flapper warped.

The Ice flapper was warped therefore, it was not closing well. Because of this, the ice dispenser got air in it and the ice cubes would deice causing to make a chunk of ice inside.I went on line, order the part ($5.75 + tax= $12.00) checked Part Select video and did it myself. It really is as seen on the video. It took me less than 10 minutes! I saved $200.00

flapper was locking open periodically.

Replaced flapper, which was in surprisingly good condition. Major part of repair was removing a lot of mold incurred from long term seepage of room air into the ice channel. In the process of the repair, I discovered that the solenoid to the right of the flapper was hanging up badly. I removed it and cleaned both the plunger and the interior cone of the solenoid with alcohol. This removed quite a bit of rust and some mold. Reinstalled solenoid, replaced flapper and it works just fine. May need to replace solenoid if problem recurs. Certainly worth $37.00!

The trim piece covering the opening of the dispenser is the first and most difficult part of the disassembly. Take care when removing this piece that it does not break.

The refrigerator and freezer doors no longer close by them selves. There are a mating set of cam type guides on the bottom hinge of each door. They are designed to give the door some momentum toward the closed position when the door is part way open. The repair was very simple. Doors are heavy, but manageable. The part shipped over the holiday weekend, but arrived very quickly considering.

Upon inspection I discovered the Dispenser Crusher Cover was broken which allowed the ice to bypass the normal route. I went to your website and found a customer's testimony regarding a similar problem. It was titled "Noticed pieces of broken plastic in my ice cubes." I ordered a new Dispenser Crusher Cover, ran a copy of the testimony and waited for the part which came in within three days. I followed the instructions in the testimony and the problem was corrected in less than 30 minutes.

After discovering I could replace the part for a fraction of the cost of having a professional do it, I viewed the short video at part select. I was afraid i was oing to cause further damage when I was forcing the disassembly. The video confirmed I was doing it properly.

Followed the instruction in the video and the job was done in 15 min. BE SURE TO DEFROST THE ICE MAKER BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO TAKE IT APART. If you don't, there is a chance that the plastic will crack or worse.
