GE Adora side by side refrigerator flap issue

The flap that opens and closes to allow ice in and out would not close. Now will not open or close. This refrigerator was puchased in September of 2005 after Katrina. Before a year had passed, we had this problem and it was replaced. We have the same problem again but of course, not under warranty. They have sent us the parts at a discounted price but we are not sure how to replace or even if these are the right parts. Can someone help, please

SOURCE: fridge not cooloing right

I have the same fridge, but a complete different problem. We just moved into this house and bought the fridge separately from the previous owners (so it's not covered under the home warranty). Our fridge side is freezing everything inside. It's on the lowest (warmest) setting and it froze a gallon of milk over night! The freezer is extremely cold, too. I took everything out and unplugged it and let it get to room temperature, but that didn't help. We also cleaned out the coils. Any suggestions?!

SOURCE: ice machine flap doesn't close all the way,then stays closed

There is a ice door solenoid for your dispenser, its probably the problem. Costs about 35 dollars and just about anyone can replace it.

SOURCE: GE Adora Side by Side Refrigerator Ice maker

We had the same problem, our is four years old and for three years, water would run down from the bin and freeze on the back wall. It finally turned out that our unit did not have the sensor in the freezer part from the factory. Once this was installed, it has worked fine.

SOURCE: ice dispenser door flap will not close.

Remove the top freezer hinge hover on top of the freezer door . Unplug the receptical there ( this will remove power to the door only ) .
Using a small screwdriver at the "crease" on the bottom of the dispensor control board inside the dispensor , twist slightly to disengage the 2 clips ( 1 on each side ) holding the dispensor board . Unplug the 3 connectors from the board . 4 screws ( 1 on each corner ) hold the dispensor housing shield . Remove these 4 small screws . After removing , at the top right , you will see a solenoid and plunger . These are probably rusted , holding the flap open . The part number for the solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 . 3 screws hold this part on . When reinstalling the dispensor housing , It slides back on 2 "grooves" so make sure it is back in place , or the board will not snap back on properly at the bottom .

Walk in freezer solenoid not opening


Many Kenmore side-by-side refrigerators have an ice and water dispenser installed on the outside of the freezer door. The ice dispenser has a flap that opens to allow ice to be released, and closes after dispensing to keep the cold air inside of the freezer. The dispenser flap is opened and closed by a solenoid, that when energized pulls the plunger attached to the flap, opening the door. If the flap stops opening and closing, it is likely due to a faulty solenoid.

Ice will not dispence thru door.


Without knowing the brand and model # I can offer the most common solution.

On most "pass the ice through the door" models there is a flapper door where the ice dispenses. The spring which holds this door closed when you are not dispensing ice becomes weak allowing the flap to stay open jsut a bit. This open space will create an ice dam in teh dispenser thus not allowing the ice to dispense. The repair is generally made by replacing the flap assembly.

All the best.

Whirpool side by side- opening for through door ice dispenser will not close all the way after dispencing ice. Causing condensation and loss of cool air. Any fix available?


Hi;there is a little plastic valve set up that return the ice flat. Fiddly joba and patients required so you don't brake anything else, that somethings sticks and won't allow flap to fully return. If that doesn't work, tape the flap up and open the freezer door and retrieve ice that way

The flap on my water and ice dispenser is forming ice inside and outside of the ice container. The flap is not closing. How do I fix this problem?


check closely the flap. see if the spring pulling it to close shut is still ok. check the seal of the flap. that seal should not be broke or chipping. it should seal tight to the plastic where it is seating.

if there is even a small opening, frost would accumulate because of the air coming in from the damage flap. this frost would accumulate until the flap itself would no longer seal the opening.

tnx 4 uisng fixya,

problem is due to ice flap closing too quickly, depending on model some have a delay before flap closes, ice should stop falling 3 seconds before flap closes. Regards Advisor
