Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator
Ice maker has worked perfectly until 2 days ago. Now, when a cup is placed against the lever to dispense ice, you can hear the ice fall thru the chute... but instead of the flap opening and allowing cubes to fall into the cup, the flap stays closed and the cubes collect on top of it.
I opened the freezer door and you can see ice cubes that were dispensed sitting in the chute on top of the flap. I can reach thru the ice and push the flap open, the ice will fall into my cup, and the flap will spring back to closed position. But for some reason the flap is no longer opening freely on its own.
I always thought the flap opened simply from the pressure of ice cubes falling against it. But now I am led me to believe that this flap is controlled by some kind of mechanism - but I have no idea what that mechanism is. Is there a switch or something connected to the flap? I have only a limited view of the flap from either side of the freezer door.
What controls the flap and can it be fixed?
