The ice maker flap on my GE side-by-side refrigerator does not close all the way. How can I fix this? It is not frozen open, but seems to be held open by the spring itself.

Most if the time the flap will roll up causing it to hang when closing. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/Refrigerator-repair.html

Flap does not close by itself, ice builds up on chute; when you put glass to fill, nothing comes out or an avalanche. Ice builds up in chute, flap won't close even manually. Ice maker stops producing.


I have had the same problem. The issue is with the solenoid that opens the flap. For a temporary fix you can just squirt some oil on it. Remove the control panel (pull it towards you from the bottom). Disconnect the three connectors. Then unscrew the four screws in the panel behind the cover. You will see the solenoid on the top right. Just squirt some oil on it and it should get it working again for a while. For a long term fix order a new solenoid, they are about $25.

Ice maker not working


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . Also , check the black fill hose that fill the ice maker , to make sure it is not frozen . If the ice maker dumps the cubes , then replace the water inlet valve . If the ice maker holds the ice , and does not dump , replace the ice maker . When you open the freezer door , the laser light , should blink twice , then pause ,repeatedly . If you close the flap on the left side , the laser should go off . These are indication that the optics are good . If you open the door , and no laser light , then that means that the ice maker is in the harvest (dump) mode . If it stays this way , ice maker is bad .

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 .

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 .

Ice Shoot area freezes up


If you grab the control panel at the bottom (the thing where you select ice water etc...) it will pop off exposing the screws you will need to remove..the part you want to replace is the dooor flap solenoid its held in place with 3 screws and will be rusted causing the piston to stick

I have a GE Profile Side by side that is working fine except the ice maker won't dump the frozen ice cubes in the tray. Another party in the house decided it would be a good idea to put water in the tray...


The ice maker is basically frozen. There are two fixes for this condition. If you can transfer all of the food out to another appliance you can unplug and open the doors and let it completely defrost on its own.

the other method is to use a blow dryer. When you have completely defrosted the ice maker and thoroughly dryed it spray the ice cube tray with pam cooking spray which will act as a lubricant. When you are ready to make ice again expect the ice maker to take about 24 hours before the first batch of ice cubes are ejected.

Ice machine makes ice but doesn't dispense when the lever is pres


I would check for an electric "flap" that opens & closes when ice lever is depressed. My GE has one and it has been fouled before causing the ice to be stuck inside the door. Hope this helps!
