Dispenser Door Assembly or Flapper

PartSelect Number PS964304

The dispenser door assembly (or flapper) is what opens to release the ice once the lever has been pressed. This part mounts in the ice dispenser. The cranker no longer comes with this part. You can use the original crank. The crank is sold separately depending on the model number of the appliance. For this repair, all you will need is a Phillips screw driver and a small flat blade. Disconnect the power, remove the escutcheon from around the dispenser, lift up the control panel, disconnect all wire connectors, use a screwdriver to remove all four screws of the housing, and lift the housing out. You will now see the flapper: push the tabs that are securing it in place to remove the piece, install the new flapper by lining it up and snapping into place.

Ice damming and freezing blocking dispense door

I unplugged the unit and removed the modeling around the beverge center on the exterior door. At this point I was able to remove the face place to the icemaker and gain access to the ice maker doors csrews. I unscrewed them and replaced them with the new part and reassembled in the reverse order. Generally an easy fix for a poor design for novice handy man/women...

Ice dispenser wouldn't work.

I watched the video and armed with that information and a few inexpensive parts replaced the defective solenoid, flapper and crank arm. I'm pretty handy and this was easy! I discovered quite a bit of mildew up and behind the panels and was able to clean those panels completely while they were removed. The screw heads were a little rusted so I made sure to use a new Phillips screw driver with the exact size tip and some moderate finesse to loosen or remove the screws. I will return to Parts Select in the future for any appliance repair parts. Thank you!

Ice maker dispenser chute frosting up

Before starting my repairs I checked for part suppliers online. Partselect was one of the first I saw. They also had instruction videos. After watching the video, I took apart the ice maker and found the solenoid had rusted. I replaced the solenoid and while everything was apart I replaced the crank, spring and the flapper. The entire process only took about 20 minutes and that was only because of their informative videos.

Ice chute from the ice maker frosted over. Cubes would not dispense

1. Unplug the fridge
2. Removed the outer facing of the dispenser outside the freezer door. This is fairly easy, better with a tool (plastic scraper) that won't mar the finish.
3. Removed the plastic plate with labels -- water, ice, etc. This is done by sliding a small jewelers screwdriver into the slots on the left, middle and right in back of the plate. These are difficult to see without a flashlight.
4. Removed the four screws in the panel behind this plate.
5. Unpluged the large cable on the left side after the panel is freed.
5. Removed the rubber "dispenser" button. this just pulls off.
6. Remove the panel
7. Lift flapper up and remove. Clips hold this in.
8. Put new flapper in place.
9. Use reverse order to put back together.
Piece of cake. Ice maker no longer frosts up.!!!!
