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.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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...

Removed front panel and control touch pad to access solenoid and door recess assembly.Replaced solenoid and door recess assembly. Didn't need spring and crank door.Wish you could have supplied new screws, as the original are very corroded and I can't find them atv any hardware store.Thanks
unclipped and replace with new part.
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!
Replaced dispenser flapper
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.
Removed ice dispenser trim from bottom-up and then removed control panel by gently pulling up from the bottom. Removed four screws holding dispenser chute and then two screws holing flapper assembly. Replaced gnarly old flapper with a new one and put all removed pieces back together.
Pulled the front panel off and let it hang by the wires, removed 4 screws replaced the new funnel ice display and spring works great.
took off the panel, took out 4 screwws, took out old flap, installed new flap, put screws back in , and put trim back on.
I followed the video that was posted in the section. It was very helpful. I wasn't sure on how to remove the panel and the video explained it completely.
The same as the vidio, very easy. Thank you
Pulled the outter cover off, removed the electronic board, replaced the flapper and put it back together again.
Followed the instructions and replaced the door recess.
1. Unplug the fridge2. 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 panel7. 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.!!!!
order the flopper, spring and racker can`t replace them; becouse factory recall back on 2003 most replace two ft. door of refrigerator. for $400.00
