Ice chute flapper would not close all the way

Following the advice of others on this site, I popped out the control panel by pushing up through the 2 outer-most holes on the under-side of the panel (the middle hole is unused). I installed the new solenoid exactly as shown in the PartSelect video. The new crank, spring, and flapper installed easily as well; I did apply a little grease to the hinge points on the crank to ensure no binding. I also installed a new microswitch. The wires are best removed from the old switch with a needlenose pliers. The old switch looked like it had some grease on the switch (where it makes contact with the cup lever) so I put some grease on the new switch as well. All-in-all, very easy and the frig works like new. It's nice to hear the flapper slam shut 4 seconds after dispensing ice.

Dischwasher door would not open.

The repair was fairly simple. I unscrewed all of the screws holding the inside door panel from the outside door panel. I then removed the old (broken) door actuator with the new one, and then screwed everything back together. I used the exploded drawing of the dishwasher from the PartSelect website which helped considerably, and also don't forget to put the spring on the actuator before you install the new one. If your door actuator broke, then you should by the spring that attaches to it, because you have about a 1% chance of finding the new one.

The ice cube door located on the front of the freezer (side by side freezer/refridgerator) stopped closing.

I removed the face plate (ice/water, selection panel) from the freezer door to access and remove the solenoid which was badly rusted and replaced with a new one, and a new spring too. Very simple repair for a chronic pain.

Door handle wouldn't work

After finally getting the door open and opening it up, the problem became apparent. Partselect helped me locate the part. it came quickly, and the repair was simple. It took me two trys to discover how the spring fit, but once I looked closely at the diagram, it was a cinch. I was a very proud dishwasher owner!

CustomerGrant from Parker CO

The door actuator handle broke preventing the door from being opened.

Two years ago the same problem cost us $160.00 to replace the same two parts. The latch failed in the exact same location and I'm disappointed that GE hasn't redesigned the latch to eliminate the sharp 90 degree angle at the point of failure. I purchased two sets of parts for $35.00 and replaced them with some small effort and little risk. I still have a set of parts for the next time it fails. It sure beats calling an authorized GE repairman and paying $160.00 or possibly more .

Flapper is stuck open

There are three holes under the front panel in which you push a very small screwdriver in and the front panel comes off.In back of the panel is another panel with 4 screws .1 at each corner.Remove the 4 screws and that will come off exposing the working parts that need to be replaced.This is also a good time to clean anything you can get to in that area.It is very important to remember how everything came out.
