Question about GE Refrigerators
Our whirlpool side by side refrigerator is having problems with the ice cube flap door is completely loose and not sealing correctly. Same issue. Original cause was the rubber near the water spout curled and obstucted the door closing. Even with that fixed the ice trap door does not shut tight. This is causing ice/frost build up in the chute.
Try this site...input your model # and look for the ice door parts. Maybe a bad spring. They are also very helpful with their chat and phone assist., video repair etc. Make sure to get the model # though.
Best to you.

clean it again and make sure when you use it that all the ice falls out if not and its open a little it will cause it to freeze open

The stuck on crush mode , is caused by ice frosted in front of the ice bin , blocking the ice bin flap from opening , when calling for cube ice . Removing the ice bin and cleaning or defrosting completely , will solve this problem , AFTER , resolving the frost in shoot problem .
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes any power , going to the door . If no plug there , remove the bottom kick plate , by removing the screw on each side in the front , and disconnect the receptical from the wires comming from the bottom of the freezer door .
Remove the dispensor control board , by prying , or pulling , from the bottom of the board . Disconnect the 3 plugs to the board . You should now see the white dispensor cover , being held on by 4 screws . Remove these screws , and slide the cover out .
In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger , with the door flap arc , inserted into the plunger . Usually rust inhibits the movement of the plunger , keeping the door flap from closing completely .
Remove the 3 screws holding the plunger and solenoid ( part number WR62X10055 ) and replace . Cleaning will not help , due to rust will return .

The door flap which releases the ice , on the door , is not closing completely .Usually this is caused by a rusted plunger so both the solenoid and plunger will have to be replaced , These parts are located behind the dispenser board so be sure to remove the top freezer door hinge cover and unplug the plug there , to remove all power going to the door , before attempting this repair . I think the part number is WR62X10055 for the kit .
When it doesn't close , it lets warm air into the freezer and causes frost on the dispenser AND on the ice bin outlet . Also , using 10 glasses or more , of crushed ice a day can cause this .
