Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

Open Question

The flapper on the ice dispenser opens but won't close. I'm thinking that the flapper needs to be changed. Before I get parts, I would like to take it apart and make sure I don't need something else. How do I take this apart (from the inside of the icemaker or from the outside)? I gently pried loose the frame on the outside but the shoot doesn't allow me to remove the front pieces. I'm thinking that I need to approach it from the inside at the icemaker......

SOURCE: Icemaker flap/door does not mechanically open

The description says you have an LG fridge?  I may need the entire model # from the sticker inside the fridge to tell for sure, but there is a motor behind the dispenser controls that opens the door.  Let me know if you need more help.  Also, you can view parts and diagrams at http://www.appliancepartspros.com/.

I had the exact same problem on my LG LRSC26940 and was able to fix it fairly easily. First remove the Ice Funnel by pulling down on it. Then remove the entire dispenser panel by getting your fingernails underneath and pulling out. Disconnect the electrical connecter to the front panel PCB. Remove the 4 screws attaching the bracket that the Ice Funnel connects to. This exposes the solenoid that opens the Ice Door flapper. In my case, the electrical connections to this solenoid were bad. I simply scraped the spade terminals on the solenoid off with a screwdriver and crimped the connectors with a pliers. I put it all back together and it is working fine now.

You may need a service call as the ice dispenser flap is operated by a solenoid which is controlled by a small pwb board which is located by the dispenser.

Why are my ice cubes dispensing faster than my crushed ice. I changed the auger assembly and crush ice is still slow coming out of dispenser.


Hello Theresa;



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



I have gone on many a service call in regards to this issue. People like their crushed ice.



The auger was not the problem. It is the nature of the beast.



Regular ice cubes have more density (Heavy) and exit through the door dispenser with no problem.



With crushed ice, shaved chips they are lite. When you dispense crushed ice the ambient room temperature (warm air) creates condensate and bines the crushed ice together. Fragments of the crushed ice block the dispenser flapper from closing all the way. The flapper remains a little bit open and ices up.



The manufacturers recommend after you run crushed ice that you run cubes through your dispenser to clear the crushed ice fragments.



Well, that solution is from engineers sitting in a office.



The solution is, from a old experienced field technician is: Reach up and wipe the flapper with a dry cloth. Look up and make sure the flapper is completely closed.

there's a solenoid that opens and closes the shute or the flapper.the part number is WR62X10055 and it's around 25 dollars.check around the plastic frame that holds this section of the dispenser in place,i'm pretty sure the frame pops off,you might need a putty knife or thin screw driver to pop it off,then you can get at the rest of the parts to change out the solenoid.it's self explanatory and easy to change it out once you pop off the outside frame piece

Ice Dispenser "Flapper" is loose--How does it reattach?


the plastic arms that move the flapper door open and closed are broken. I had this happen to me some months back. You will need to buy a repair kit from your local dealer. Explain what is broken and they can look up their part/kit number. You can't buy just the plastic door. Mine cost about $30 but was worth the price of getting my ice maker dispenser operating again. Very minor mechanics required to open this portion of the mechanism. Mostly some removal of screws and a spring or two. Good luck.

Kenmore side by side icemaker


Your product is an IDI (In Door Ice the bucket is in the door) or a Non-IDI? By the way, you mention the Ice maker. The thing is that if the ice maker is not runnning then you don't have ice to dispense and obviously the fact that the motor is working or not is irrelevant. So that's why I suppose that the problem is not the ice maker but the trajectory of the cubes from the bucket to outside of the door.

In the Non-IDI sometimes it happens that the safes in the bucket jump the locks were the bucket resides so the auger motor (the one that move the shaft so you get the Ice) is still running but you can't get ice because the bucket is not in the right position. Just try to relocate the bucket.

You can see if the motor is moving the shaft pressing the light switch that is at the top of the freezer. Then dispense, when you press the switch the main board thinks that the door is closed so you can dispense and see if the motor is moving the shaft.

Other failure mode is the flapper door, it depends if the dispenser works with full electronics or if it's an electromechanical dispenser. Full electronics dispenser use a stepper motor to move the flapper door so the failure is that when you press the pad and the flapper door is closing, if you press it again then it get stucked, the motor dispense but the flapper door is closed. With electromechanical dispenser, maybe is the dashpot mechanism.

If any of these solutions couldn't fix your problem please tell me. I think that I can solve this particular problem.
