The trim on this model doesn't need to come off. Instead pry the control (with the buttons) panel off to expose the screws. the control panel has a small wire harness to it that is easy to disconnect. Let me know if you need more help. Good Luck!

The ice dispenser will not let the ice out. It makes the ice and drops it into the door, but the little plastic black flap that is supposed to open to let the ice out does not open.


The first thing to do is unplug the machine. After that slide out the area where the water falls, I guess you would call that a drip pan, and place to the side. Now, the part that always makes me uncomfortable, you're going to have to pop the trim off the door. Its held on by little clips, and the method I found most succcessful without damging the trim or breaking the clips is to get a small flathead screwdriver, and just above the lower corner, either one, slide it in between the trim and the door and kind of pry it forward. Once you get started its down hill from there. After you get the trim off, you'll be able to remove the control area, which is either held in by screws or sometimes tabs, and access the flap. Note that alot of times the door flap is fine, its a plastic little ring that is broken on the mold of the door. In the past you had to buy the whole door,which ran about $700, but now there is a repair kit, which cost me whole sale no more than $50, so retail about $70 or so I would assume. There are other parts in the area that helo the machine function, such as the soleniod that connects to the flap to help open or shut it, retaining bracket, and so forth. Once you have the dispenser apart it shouldn't take long to isolate the problem.

I have a 2010 maytag refrigerator and it started dispensing ice on its own without stopping I had to unplug it. I've now plugged it back in and it's frosting up have taken off the I e maker.


The area where you put your cup and push the handle to dispense the ice there is a microswitch located somewhere, usually near the top of the handle. This actuates the auger to dispense and opens the door flap. Chances are the door flap is stuck open which is why you are getting the frosting up issue, but your going to have to take the dispenser apart to really isolate the issue.

I have a GE side by side refrigerator (Model #GSL25JFXLB) and the ice and water dispenser stopped working. Any suggestions?


THE first thing i would ask are you still making ice in the ice bucket and just that it will not come out of the door... if so it is going to be a problem with the dispenser actuator or the micro switch in the door. there is a small pc control board in the dispenser area they may also be affected.. will require you remove the trim piece around the dispenser usually under the water overflow in the door once you remove it there will be 2 screws take them out ..if your do not have the screws on the side of trim you will see notched out area on each side the carefully a screwdriver can be put in and pop the trim piece off. check the switch with the door actuator is it making contact.if you are not getting water or ice production has stopped i would say check your filter first/next check to see if behind the produce drawers you have a water storage resorvoir make sure it has not froze up... lastely check the water valve to make sure you are getting 120 volts to water valve when the door switch is pushed ..hope this helps post with more info and any other questions you have....good luck to you...

Ice dispenser delivers only crushed ice.


Make sure the dispensor door flap is closing completely .
Remove the ice bin , close the door , set the display for cubed and press the dispensor pad . Do you hear a " clunk " sound ? If not , open the door and press on the light switch , and activate the pad again . On the back wall , next to the " forks " , is a square hole with a white plastic square . Does this plastic square raise up ? If not , remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there ( this removes power to the dispensor ) , you will have to remove the 4 screws holding this panel , and determine if the solenoid is bad , wire came off , or plastic piece is broken . If the plastic piece does lift , then the problem is in the ice bin . Lift the long rod , and see if the flap moves , where the ice comes out . If not , you will have to determine why .

Somehow the rubber gasket on the ice depenser popped off. It's the round black rubber piece that closes when not dispensing ice. How do I get the front off to reattach? My hands are too big to get up...


Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

GE mod #gsh22kgmb ww. port thru which ice exits


Try cleaning the edges of the flap and the ice chute as well. Once you've done that, check to see if the pivot rod is fully engaged at end side, as having it out of position could be causing it to "hang up" and not fully close.

If the rod has been knocked out of position, reposition it with your hands then you can lightly lube each end at the pivot points, with a food grade silicon lubricating spray. Use ONLY a food grade lubricant so you don't end up getting nasty tasting ice cubes or contaminating the cubes as they pass thru the chute and flap.

If that doesn't resolve the problem, you'll need to remove the chute & flap assembly from the dispenser section of the door and check for the return spring engagement, as it may have become disconnected and as a result, isn't closing the flap fully, as it should.

To do this, you'll need to remove the trim bezel around the dispenser section with a plastic putty knive (to avoid scratching the trim). be very careful when prying the bezel, do it VERY carefully so as not to snap/break the trim piece. Once you have that removed, you can see and get at the retaining screw(s) that hold the chute & flap assembly on the door panel.

Check the line drawing attached for proper part placement of the spring (part #63) and for seeing how your particular dispenser is attached to the freezer door.

Button set on cube - only sends out crushed ice


No , the panel is probably ok .
1 ) remove the ice bin
2 ) in the back of the freezer , you'll see a square hole , with a white rectangle piece inside , which you should be able to lift upward , with your finger . If this piece doesn't lift , then it may be corroded with rust , or be bad . When you call for cubes , this piece lifts up and in the process , lifts the long rod , attached to the ice bin . When the rod lifts , it opens the bin flap , allowing cubes to be dispensed . If it does not lift , the cubes will be ground against the cutters , therefore , dispensing crushed ice .
3 ) to access this solenoid which lifts the cube actuator , remove the 3 or 4 screws on the sides of the PANEL , and with the panel removed , you will have access to the solenoid and actuator .
4 ) you can check the solenoid for continuity , voltage ( when arm pressed for cubes) , or possibly a loose wire .

Ice dispensor flap does not stay shut


This is how most dispensers are accessed.

Check for screws around or on the under side of the dispenser trim that can be removed to get the trim off. Sometimes the drip tray in the base of the dispenser needs to be removed to access the screws. Sometimes the top panel (touchpad) of the dispenser is removed to access the dispenser components.

If there are no screws, use a putty knife with the end wrapped with tape so the paint on the door panel is not scratched.

Start at the bottom of the trim and CAREFULLY pry the trim away from the door panel.

There may be small slots in the panel on the under side that the putty knife can be inserted into.

With the trim off, the dispenser components can be serviced.
