Hi RJ,

Look, since I don't know exactly what part you're talking about I'm gonna give links, OK?

Alright... first click this link to get a full size diagram of you fountain/dispenser assy. and identify the part your talking about. Now click this link to get part numbers.

I hope this helps. I know that until you get this fixed, you'll have frost build up in the ice chute. If you need help installing the new part, write back, OK?

    "Thanks, I got the part number straight away."<--- that means your problem was solved, right? If you'd be so kind, indicate that by rating my solution please... thanks!

    Also... you aren't limited to ordering the part from Sears. Search the part number and see if there's a local vendor in the UK first, that may save you some time.

    Another thing... don't you blokes have 220V/50 hz. over there? What did you do to adapt a US fridge to your electrical grid? Transformer?

Admiral gc2227cdfb side by side freezer, when I push the button to dispense ice the flap on the door doesn't open and the ice just clogs in the door behind the flap. Any ideas guys?

Defrost the door. I believe that your flapper is froze shut. If you live in a high humidity area in the summer this will happen.

Mf12568aeb lights flashing and ice door flapping

You will have to call Maytag at 1-800-688-9900...Motherboard is bad. You can pull out the little plate at the bottom of the water/ice dispenser, then unscrew the two screw. Pull on the bottom and the panel should come out. Unplug the white connector on the left. This will stop the flapping of the ice dispenser flap.
