Firstly, unplug your refrigerator unit. There is a small phillips-head screw up underneath the display panel. Remove this screw, and then gently grab underneath on both sides of the panel. Pull out toward yourself gently and it should pop out. The ice dispenser should have a few more screws to be removed. Once these are removed, the ice door assembly (because it is an assembly, motor and all) should easily be removable. Make sure you look for and disconnect the electrical connectors of these pieces before attempting to remove them from the unit.

SOURCE: I need to replace the Ice dispenser lever in ny

Unless the old one actually broke, you can re-install it if it merely fell off. Use a mirror and a flashlight to see the hole on the side toward you so that you can re-insert the lever that goes towards the front, then re-insert the lever into the back hole. If the lever actually broke, the new lever will come with directions on how to install it.

SOURCE: Samsung RS2555SL Ice Maker gone nutty!

The icemaker relies on the motor to twist the ice tray about 120 degrees or so the dump the ice out of the tray. In order to get the ice to separate from the tray the force of the motor actually torques the tray against the rear plastic support (much like you would twist an old fashioned ice tray that you fill up by hand). Anyway, this puts a lot of force on the plastic elements that support the tray and they break after time. Once the plastic support breaks in the back there is nothing to get the ice out of the tray and each subsequent filling of the ice tray results in water spilling all over the ice bin and eventually leaking out the front of the refrigerator. You can order the part and fix it yourself (the part is DA61-00244A and is available from a number of websites. Total cost about $16 with shipping.

SOURCE: Front ice/water dispenser stopped working.

I had the same problem. Turned out to be a microswitch under the lever used to activate it. The microswitch fell from the original position so it wasn't turning on anything. I tried gluing into position but the fumes from the crazy glue messed up the switch and I had to replace the whole rig.
The part is under the control display. You can pry it open from the left side.

How do I get the surround/Frame off the water dispenser on the door. The flap within the chute is off its hinge or broken and stopping me using the ice cube chute


Most of the frames just pry off from the out side. But on some models and brands the have retaining nuts on the inside. If thats the case you should be able to remove a section of the inner door panel directly behind the dispenser.

Frost forms on the inside opening of the chute for the water/ice dispenser. Also frost on the exit chute from the ice cube tray. The frost is present a day or so after I clean it off.


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 .

I have a frigidaire side by side. the ice dispenser lever and black gasket flap is digusting. How can I get it aprt to clean them?


If you look up into the dispenser area, you'll find a small (1/4") hex head screw that holds the one side (right side I believe) of the ice dispenser chute and flap in place. You can remove the screw and the clip that holds the assembly in place and you can remove the chute and flap from the door.

Once you have that out, you can cleam them with warm soapy water (don't use any harsh chemical cleaners to prevent damaging the plastic, etc.) Dry all parts and then you can put them back on.

I'd stuff a towel into the opening to prevent ice buildup while you're cleaning the parts, just to be sure to not have any other problems occur.

You can re-install them by reversing the steps described.

You can also try to just unclip the chute, but you could break it or the dispensing lever/arm in the process, hence the reason for removing the assembly instead.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards

GE Refrigerator


first, let us explore the problem with dispenser flap. open the freezer and look into the ice discharge chute. there may be an accumilation of ice impeding the proper operation of the flap. next, you have indicated the light socket is broken. is it just the bulb or the socket itself? if you wish to remove the ice/water panel, first unplug the unit,. then you may be able to unsnap the drip tray where one would sit their water glass. if you are successful in doing this then the panel can be removed with a star driver but it depends upon the fasteners used. Always keep in mind to disconnect power before working on unit. I hope this was helpful.

GE Icemaker flap door won't open causes ice jam in chute


There is an electric solenoid that opens the door. If you look up inside the dispenser you can see the solenoid. Either the solenoid is bad or the dispenser module that puts power to it is out. You will need to remove dispenser front and check for voltage to solenoid. If you have power from module, replace solenoid, if no power, replace both parts. It is common for solenoid to short out and damage the module so that both must be replaced. If solenoid is shorted and you replace module, new part will fry.

Whirpool Side by Side Ice Dispenser Freezes up


Think you have it figured out. Just had a similar problem. The flap leaked air (moisture) up into the area which then froze. Then the customer chipped it out with a knife and not only damaged the flap seal worse but also made the chute area rough from the knife tip "burrs" in the plastic chute. A new flap door with factory seal along with sanding down the burrs cured the problem. Spraying something food grade like Pam cooking spray (very lightly) will aid in the ice cube/crushed ice to slide down the chute better. With any refer, keep the moisture out or it WILL freeze up stuff.
