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 .

I am trying to install a new heat motor on a frigidaire refrigerator model frs26zrg. I am having frost build up on front side of ice maker, assuming its from flapper not closing all the way.


I assume your frost is at the front of the ice bin? If so, your correct. Room temperature air is leaking in to a 0 degree environment and causing frost build up. First, I would see if the ice door closes 100% without spring by pressing your finger on the door. I've had bad ice doors that were warped. Next, inspect supporting rod and spring and make sure they look ok. An eye test should suffice. Next, without heat motor, the spring should keep door shut 100%. See if that helps, good luck!

My ice maker has ice in the tray but not dropping in Ben,it is a kfil27cxmso there is a lite that sends a beam across ben ,how do I check to see if the bulb is blown or working, gk


Hello George;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

I live in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

All ice makers work in the same way.

Your fill cycle is working fine. You have a thermostat in your ice maker which tells your ice maker control module (Computer) that the ice cubes are frozen and ready for harvest. Then, then control module tells the cube tray heater to turn on for so many seconds, followed by the control module to activate the harvesting motor.

So, your ice maker either has a bad thermostat, heater or motor.

The beam across your freezer section is a safety device. On the right hand side is the transmitter. On the left hand side is the receiver with a plastic flapper. When you close the door the flapper closes and completes the signal to discharge ice. When you open the door the flapper pops out blocking the signal.

Red light inside the freezer part stay on for my side by side Kenmore refrigerator


Hello William;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

The, 'Red' light is a infra red light. This light assembly on the right hand side of your freezer is the transmitter.
Directly across is the receiver. On the receiver is a spring loaded plastic flapper.
This is a safety device for your ice maker. When the freezer door is closed, the flapper is closed, allowing the infra red transmitter to complete the signal to the receiver. This allows the ice maker to discharge ice cubes. When the door is open the signal is broken, the flapper springs out blocking the circuit signal, and the ice maker will not discharge ice cubes.
There is a On/Off switch on the red transmitter. I do not know why you would want to turn it off. If you turn it off and the transmitter stays on then you have to replace both the transmitter and receiver.

If the temp in the 50/60 . To little info Freezer stop working. The first thing in Freezer side to melt is Ice Cream and Fish. 1st thing on freezer to check is the (Ice) Damper door closing all the way. Place a towel on floor and one when you get the ice. Get a 1/2 coffee cup of water pour in the shoot on top of the damper flapper if it hold water This is good. Close the door and remove the water by get ice. If the water pours out Not Good Replace the Damper assembly. It is letring in air and will freeze the evap up . 2nd there may be ice blocking the fan from turning. Bad sensor. Call Samsung get a tech out.

Ed25rfxfw01. I have an ED25RFXFW01 refrig whose ice maker 'trap door' won't shut all the way( about a half inch gap) when you stop dispensing the ice. Tried to take the clear shield loose to see if it was...


Sadly, you will need to replace the entire 'flapper' assembly for this machine to fix this problem. This is the part in question. 8201649 for Whirlpool side by side. However, I would suggest if you can find the entire control panel assembly (which would be MUCH easier and have less chance to break things) to do that instead.

However, clearing the shoot wont do a thing for this issue at all.

Hope this helps ya ^_^

The ice cube maker makes ice ok but the ice crusher is not crushing properly. The grinder area(teeth) seems to keep geting frozen (clogged) with ice.


The most common problem with this is the door/flapper is not closing snuggly. Usually a piece of ice holds it open but if this is happening all the time make sure the little ice door/flapper is closing all the way open the door and push it open and see how it is closing. If there is not water freezing on the left side of the freezer under the icemaker its self you have to have air getting into the freezer and usually its the ice door. good luck

Helo I have a KitchenAid KSBS25FKWHOO which is like this one. My problem is there is a push button for ice cubes or crushed ice and as of now no matter which button i push it gives crushed ice. How can I...


Hi,

It sounds like your crushed ice flapper might be stuck.

Open the freezer and remove the ice bin by pulling toward you. Dump the ice into a container if you wish to save it.

Turn the bin upside down and look at the opening in the front that the ice drops out. There is a white flapper door that is controlled by a metal rod going all the way to the back of the ice bin. If you move the metal arm up and down from the back you should see the flapper door open and close. Open is for cubed ice and closed causes the cubes to travel through the blades and be crushed.

The most common failure is ice or frost build up around the flapper door that causes it to stick shut and not move to the open or cubed position. You can unthaw by running warm water through it in the sink. Dry completely before returning it to the freezer. Clean out any ice chunks from the chute in the door that might be slowing down ice. That should fix the problem.

Ice door flapper does not open


It is possible that the solenoid wire connections may have come loose.  You will have to pop off the front cover of the display panel to gain access to the solenoid.  To remove the panel, look below the bottom of the panel to find 2 screwdriver holes.  Slide a screwdriver in one of them and gently pry open the panel.
