Admiral gc2227cdfb side by side freezer, when I push the button to dispense ice the flap on the door doesn't open and the ice just clogs in the door behind the flap. Any ideas guys?


Defrost the door. I believe that your flapper is froze shut. If you live in a high humidity area in the summer this will happen.

The ice flap on my freezer will not stay open. If I reach up and grab the flap as it's opening, the ice will flow freely. But if I don't grab the flap and keep it open, the ice won't dispense. It's no


Kristen,
Thank you for giving more information. I believe you will need to replace the flapper on the ice dispenser. I based this answer on the following: you mentioned when the door is held open ice comes out. Let me know if this helps. As you may know, there are several different things that could cause this issue, but this is the most common one of them. Here is a how to video on this type of repair:

Walk in freezer solenoid not opening


Many Kenmore side-by-side refrigerators have an ice and water dispenser installed on the outside of the freezer door. The ice dispenser has a flap that opens to allow ice to be released, and closes after dispensing to keep the cold air inside of the freezer. The dispenser flap is opened and closed by a solenoid, that when energized pulls the plunger attached to the flap, opening the door. If the flap stops opening and closing, it is likely due to a faulty solenoid.

Freezer door ice dispenser flap will not close completely. The cold air is leaking out of the freezer. What can I do to fix?


There are multiple parts to the dispenser for GE. You say that door isn't closing properly, which could mean that the solenoid isn't working properly, or that the door flap retainer itself is broken, I want to say that they make a complete kit for it but not for certain,

Icemaker flap door doesn't shut completely resulting in in frost layers forming on and around ice bucket and water leaking into the drip tray and ice forming on freezer door near the freezer door.


Hi,
I found 9 different model to your model number, but all the unit use the same dispenser components.
Below there is a picture of the dispenser, item number 4,5,6,7 and 8 all deal with the working parts.
4 - return spring 5 - pin 6 - dispenser door 7 - Door Mechanism Assy (this one has a heater, not really needed) 8 - Door Delay kidlmo_2.gif but in looking up history, I found a complete door kit that should solve the issue. They came out with a part 8201649 and this part contains all those item and a bracket that can fix the broken tabs that the pin sits in. That was more common.
Back a couple of years ago they stop telling customer that the repair was not possible when the bracket to the pin support (mount) would break.
I hope this helps..

Ice dispenser door flap will not close completely. I'm sure something has sprung or broke inside the door. How do I get the face off to look at the mechanism that opens and closes the door?


Remove the top freezer hinge hover on top of the freezer door . Unplug the receptical there ( this will remove power to the door only ) .
Using a small screwdriver at the "crease" on the bottom of the dispensor control board inside the dispensor , twist slightly to disengage the 2 clips ( 1 on each side ) holding the dispensor board . Unplug the 3 connectors from the board . 4 screws ( 1 on each corner ) hold the dispensor housing shield . Remove these 4 small screws . After removing , at the top right , you will see a solenoid and plunger . These are probably rusted , holding the flap open . The part number for the solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 . 3 screws hold this part on . When reinstalling the dispensor housing , It slides back on 2 "grooves" so make sure it is back in place , or the board will not snap back on properly at the bottom .
