Re: Ice dispenser

I fixed it by replacing the solenoid that operates the flapper door and the flapper door. They came as a kit and both were broken.

I still have a problem which is a bad circuit board. I can't switch from ice to water. I am stuck on ice, so I have not bothered to fix.

Re: Ice dispenser

I've had this problem, too, but find it worse in the summer, high humidity (I live in Dallas, Texas) and high use.

Re: Ice dispenser

Make sure that the flap is sitting in properly. if it is and problem still happens then i'd say that its a design fault

Ice Dispenser keeps getting frosted over and not dispensing ice

The problem your having is that the door in the dispenser chute isn't closing completly and warm air is coming in, clashing with the freezer and the moisture in the warm air freezes and collects right there in the chute causing the ice build up. The more common parts that may cause this is the door flapper being bad or damaged, flapper soleniod, which helps the flapper doofr get a good seal, and electronic board on the dispenser itself.

Hi Don,

Typically this occurs when the dispenser door does not close all the way.

The dispenser door is located in the freezer door in the chute that the ice dispenses down.

With the freezer door open shine a light up from the outside and look down into the door from the inside. If you see light around the door flapper, you will need to replace the dispenser door, if there is a large gap between the dispenser door and the chute you will need to replace the mechanism that controls the door.

Ice dispenser door not working

The flapper door is operated by a solenoid which opens the flapper. More than likely the solenoid is bad, but, it could also, be the control board.

GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. side by side is frosting in the shoot

Oddly enough, the problem is with your ice dispenser. What happens is that the door at the bottom of the ice chute is probably not sealed. This is likely because there is a solenoid that is supposed to hold that door open when you push your cup against the dispenser arm, and THEN, close it again when you release. If the chute door is not sealed, warmer, moist air from outside the refridgerator will be canstantly drawn up the chute where the moisture will freeze as frost. Gradually, this frost builds up in the chute until there is no longer enough room foir the ice to fall. You can usually look up at the chute from outside and see that the door is not sealed. In my case, I left it unsealed because the door would not open to let the ice out. It took me about 3 months to figure out that this was causing my frost-clogging problem. The solution is to replace the solenoid that is supposed to open and close the chuite door. If you remove the despenser panel, you will see that this solenoid is probably all rusted up and not working. The following link will allow you to enter you model number and see a diagram of the offending area.
