Look under the disp. cover.you will see 2 cut out were a falt blade screwdriver will fit into it.
stick you screwdriver in that slot and pry out careful not to crack the cover.

tip: press down w/the palm of your hand on the cover while prying up w/the screwdriver.it should snap off

Our automatic ice dispenser hums but doesn't move ice through to be dispensed


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 ice dispenser door stays open. Selenoid works


This is due to a rusted solenoid plunger .You will need to remove the top freezer door hinge cover ( 1 screw ) , and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the dispensor . Using a screwdriver , insert it just behind the dispensor board , and twist , to pry the board off . Remove the 3 plugs there , and remove the board . Remove the 4 screws on the white cover , and slide the cover out and off . In the top right , in the dispensor area , you will see the solenoid and plunger . 3 screws hold the solenoid on . Lift the flap , and the plunger will lift off . Part number for solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 . The closing spring is probably good , and if you are pushing the flap closed , you are moving the plunger itself , instead of it gliding inside the solenoid , to the closed position .

The chute for the ice despenser is freezing up and nothing will come out of the chute because it is frozen solid


You should remove the freezer upper door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door .
Remove the dispensor board , by prying out from the bottom . After removing the board , disconnect the 3 plug-ins on the board itself .
Remove the 4 screws on the white dispensor cover , and slide out the cover .
At the top right , you will see a solenoid with a plunger which the door flap rocker , slips into . Usually , this plunger will rust , keeping the door flap from closing completely , therefore causing frost in the shoot where the ice comes out . 3 screws hold this solenoid and plunger in place . Part number for solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 .
You cannot remove and clean , due to the rust already starting . It will happen again , unless you replace these parts .
To disconnect the flap , raise the flap and the plunger will slide off .
Re assemble in the reverse order .

Frost inside the ice dispenser chute and the ice cube dispenser seems "stuck" on crush mode instead of dispensing full cubes.


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 .

Frost building up in ice maker exit shoot and


Look into the dispensor , and see if the door flap is closing , or letting warm air in which will cause the frost buildup . If not closing completely , remove the top cover on the freezer door hinge , and unplug the plug . This will remove power to the door . Use a small screwdriver , and insert under the freezer door dispensor control board , and pry outward . Remove the 3 plugs on the board . Next , remove the 4 screws holding the white dispensor cover , and slide outward . At the top right , you will see a solenoid and plunger , which control the door flap . Usually , this plunger rusts on the solenoid . Replace both , the solenoid and plunger ( come together in kit ) Pt # WR62X10055 . Re-assemble in reverse .

The ice shoot leaks water into the exterior tray


It sounds like the dispensor flap , is not closing , letting warm air into the freezer . Remove the top cover from the freezer door hinge and disconnect the plug . This removes power to the door . Use a small screwdriver , and pry the bottom of the dispensor display board outward . Remove the 3 plugs . Remove the 4 screws on the white dispensor housing ( 1 on each corner ) and slide the housing out . In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger . These 2 parts usually rust , and have to be replaced . Pt # WR62X10055 . Only 3 screws hold this piece on , so it can easily be replaced .

Ice flap door won't close - Freezer and ice maker frost up


Every time you use the ice dispensor , when the flap opens , cold air will fall inside the enclosed dispensor cover . This cold air , mixed with the warm outside air , produces moisture inside the cover . After so long , this moisture starts turning to rust , causing the solenoid and plunger to rust . G E has no "fix" for this problem yet . My suggestion , would be to drill holes in the bottom of the dispensor enclosure (white plastic enclosure , held on by 4 screws ) at certain points , so that the cold air will fall thru the cover , instead of staying in the enclosure . This is something I have to try on customers refrigerators for a while , before I send this Idea to G E . To answer your question , yes , I is normal to replace every couple of years ,.....for now anyway .

Ice maker door stays open. How do I take off front panel to revel parts?


Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door only . Between the dispensor grate and the dispensor cover , inside at the bottom inside dispensor , insert a butter knife and push down and inward , to pop the bottom of dispensor cover outward , on each inner side . This will pop the 2 plastic clips on the cover off . Lift the cover , to pass the plastic retainer tabs . Disconnect the plug to the dispensor . There are 2 screws holding the white housing which has the switches mounted onto it . Remove these screws , and slide the housing foreward and lift . You should be able to see the complete flap door and the spring and pin , to decide what is causing the door to stay open . If you come back with the found problem , and the model number , I would be able to give you the part number(s) needed .

The ice door does not close so ice has formed inside the freezer, how do I get the fromt cover off to check the plunger to see if it is working to close the little door.


Remove the top freezer hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door . Between the grill and the lower portion of the dispensor cover , at the inside bottom , use a butter knife and push down and inward , to force the lower portion of the cover out slightly . Do this on both sides , being careful due to plastic tabs can break , Once bottom is out , lift the dispensor cover upward to disenguage top plastic tabs . Unplug the cover from the plugin . Remove the 2 screws holding the dispensor housing and slide outward . This gives you access to the door flap , flap spring and pin . You will be able to see the problem .

Ice dispensor flap is little warped.


the number for ge parts service is 1-877-959-8688. make sure you have the model # and serial number. if you don't have a manuel or if you have one that covers more than one model in it than you have to look for a little black most likely silver plate wich will have that info on it. if it's not on the inside or front of fridge anywhere you will have to pull it out from the wall because it will be on the back of it. hope i helped you.
