Question about Jenn-Air 21.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Filtered Ice and Water

1 Answer

Ice Dispenser "Flapper" is loose--How does it reattach?

Refrig is a Jenn-Air side-by-side Model # J502789HES. The round flapper that covers the hole where ice is dispensed through came loose, and is just "floating" free. Can't figure out how "flapper" re-attaches. A blow up drawing MIGHT help. Any suggestions? Ice maker works fine. Problem just renders the dispenser inoperable.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can supply.

The plastic arms that move the flapper door open and closed are broken. I had this happen to me some months back. You will need to buy a repair kit from your local dealer. Explain what is broken and they can look up their part/kit number. You can't buy just the plastic door. Mine cost about $30 but was worth the price of getting my ice maker dispenser operating again. Very minor mechanics required to open this portion of the mechanism. Mostly some removal of screws and a spring or two. Good luck.

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.

Ice dispensor


Make sure that the "flapper-door" closes about 3 seconds after the ice dispenser button is released. Mine had a habit of catching and staying OPEN. This allows warm air to enter the dispenser / freezer compartment causing your problem.

If it is stuck you have to take the dispenser apart to loosen / lubricate the flapper door cam to allow for free movement.

This is the worst ICE system I've ever seen for a variety of reasons.

Icemaker problems


Woody, This is one of the easier dispenser assy. to fix. The flapper is pretty simple, it clips on to the hinge assy. The hinge assy. has a spring that closes the flapper. There is a selenoid that pulls the flapper open. You can look up the parts on the net to see what they would cost. Flapper-12562701, hinge assy. 67004119, solenoid-12575401,spring 12565502. I don't know if you need all of them, Im not there to see. But if you have some time on your hands you could save a lot of money doing it yourself. Once fixed, you should be good for a long time.
