SOURCE: Re: GE ZISB420DMC Refr Ice dispenser

It’s the flap, the spring, the crank, or the solenoid (the device that opens the flap). Now you need to remove the front cover off the dispenser (on most refrigerators it just snaps off). Then remove four screws behind the cover and remove the dispenser control. Once off you should see the flap. Inspect the spring to see if it is broke or out of place, if so, replace it. Then see if the crank (the part that the flap is attached to) is broke, if so, replace it. Now look at the flap to see if the edges are rolled over or is broken, if so, replace it.
Now for the solenoid, sometimes it gets rusty and won’t close all the way. Sometimes it overheats and welds itself open, if this happens it won’t open or close. In any case, if it doesn’t open or close properly replace it.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a GE

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Freezer is frosting over at the ice dispenser area

Are you sure your model is the GSL25JFTBS? Sounds like the ice dispenser door is not closing all the way and allowing air and moisture to enter via the ice door. Items 62, 63 and 36 in the photo HERE are most likely broken and causing the frost. You will need to open the dispenser to see just what part is broken.

I am here should you have questions or a different model number Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice chute frosts up??


This is caused by a rusted plunger and solenoid . To replace them ( in a kit pt # WR62X10055 ) , remove the top plastic hinge cover of the freezer door , and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door . Use a small screwdriver or butter knife , under the dispenser control panel , and pry outward . Disconnect the 3 plugs . Remove the 4 screws on each corner of the white dispenser switch body , and slide foreward . The solenoid and plunger are at the top right , held on by 3 screws . Replace with the kit . Cleaning the plunger will not help . The kit needs to be replaced . ( note .. when reinstalling the white switch holder , it slides back in , on a slight track , so the dispenser board will pop back in flush . When re-installing the dispenser board , put the top in first , then pop the bottom back in place ) . Don't forget to plug the door back in .

Freezer frosts up to the point of not being able to open the door without ice falling on the floor. Can this be fixed?


Yes it can be fixed, This can be as simple as replacing the door seals if bad to replacing the defrost board.If the seals are good and the doors close and seal as they should then the defrost is not working properly.

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 .

The ice and water depenser is not working and I bought a new bulb, but it doesn't work either.


I believe your model number is closer to the GSS25KSTASS. If so then it is possible that the dispenser board is shorting out. Many times it will be the part number WR62X10055 dispenser door solenoid that causes the problem. If someone has an OHM meter and can unplug the pin plug at the hinge top or bottom of freezer door we need to run some voltage test. We need to see if voltage is present there and if yes leave it unplugged until we know that there is no short circuit that could damage the motherboard. When you are ready please let me know, Sea Breeze.

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 ice maker door stands open by about a quarter of an inch allowing cold to escape and frost to form. How can I replace or repair the little ice dispenser door on the front of my freezer section?


Remove the top hinge cover of the freezer door and disconnect the plug . This removes power to the dispensor . Pry the bottom of the control board outward and disconnect the 3 plugs on the board . Remove the 4 screws holding the dispensor switch housing and slide out . The door flap solenoid is the probable problem . Remove this piece ( upper right ) by removing the 3 screws . Replace with part number WR62X10055 . Reinstall in reverse .

It sounds like the dispensor flap is not closing . Can you look down the ice shoot , and see daylight ? If so , dispensor and plunger need to be replaced . Pt # WR62x10055 . Or , if crushed ice is used quite often , this too will cause the shoot to jam . Unfortunantly , only cure for this , is to use less crushed ice . Since you've taken parts off the door before , I wont go into , how to get to and replace the solenoid and plunger .

GE Profile Ice flap is broken


The part number you need is WR62X10055 . This is the sokenoid and plunger which operates the flap . They tend to rust badly , keeping the flap from opening/closing . With a small screwdriver , pry the control panel ( from the bottom only ) outwards . This panel is the push buttons for crush , cube , water . Once removed , there are 4 screws , one on each corner of the white housing . Unplug the 3 plugs on the control panel first . Remove the 4 screws and slide out the housing . The solenoid and plunger are at the top right , held on by 3 screws . Replace solenoid AND plunger , and reassemble in reverse . Also , remove the top freezer door hinge cover to access the plug which should be unplugged first . After reassembling dispensor , dont forget to plug the plug back in .
