On mine one end of the spring broke off in the hole on the door. It was on top of the hinge so it looked like a pivot pin. I found that this was the second hole for the spring. I pushed the end of the new spring up under the hinge and popped the broke piece of old spring out. Now I could see the 2 holes. You then need to put the spring into each hole. The hole on the flap also needs a white plastic sleeve if that is missing. that goes on the end of the spring and fits into the flap hole. Then the trick part is understanding how the spring works? If you put both ends of the spring in the holes and shut the flap, it now stays in position to close and be flipped open by the guide that swings it open to seal.
Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps , replace the water valve . If it doesn't , replace the icemaker . Your icemaker may have the white flap arm with a spring attached between the arm and bottom of the icemaker . Check that spring , to make sure both ends are seated . Ocassionally , the top of the spring (fitting into the bottom of the icemaker ) comes out , and has to be pushed back into the hole .
the ice door has a solenoid that opens and closes the ice door. since you were able to replae the door i assume you can take it apart pull it back apart and the crank the door attaches too is connected on 1 side to an electrical soleiod test if the plunger moves up and down freely. also look for heat deformation around the plastic as well. if it turns out the solenoid is bad i would also recomend replacing the the fountain boards as well. I dont think you can put to much tension on the spring..
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.
