Question about GE Monogram® ZISS420DMSS Side by Side Refrigerator
My GE Monogram® ZISS420DMSS Ice dispenser flap/door will no longer close tightly and lets cold air out and causes the chute to ice up. The spring is apparently weak and often after dispensing ice will stay open. Even if you reach up there and close the flap, it will not seat tightly.
I have a similar problem. The repair guy took a look at it and stated everything is working and did not order any solenoid or any other parts. After he left the problem returned where ice comes down the chute it tends to lodge and keep the door open. I am disagreement with the repair guy and am leaning toward the idea that the spring has lost tension and is just too weak to close with any authority. There is a video on how to replace the spring on youtube. This is what I will be doing next weekend and will try to return to post results.

If you take a look at this diagram, you should be able to see all the inner workings of that area and decide if you want to repair it. I think anyone with the most basic mechanical skills could easily handle this repair. See parts 62,63,67, etc. Could just be the spring is off or broken. Let us know what you find! http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/GE/00112435i01.gif

There is an electric solenoid that opens the door. If you look up inside the dispenser you can see the solenoid. Either the solenoid is bad or the dispenser module that puts power to it is out. You will need to remove dispenser front and check for voltage to solenoid. If you have power from module, replace solenoid, if no power, replace both parts. It is common for solenoid to short out and damage the module so that both must be replaced. If solenoid is shorted and you replace module, new part will fry.

clean it again and make sure when you use it that all the ice falls out if not and its open a little it will cause it to freeze open

This may be because the chute door is not all the way shut when off. If yes the warm moist air is being pulled through the opening and causing this. Sea Breeze
