I've got an LFX25960ST that makes ice just fine, however when you press the cup in to dispense it, the ice maker makes the noises to dispense the ice, however the little door that allows the ice to drop does not open.
Any one know how to fix this, or which parts are required to perform the repair?

Re: 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.
After some research on this web site I found out that the ice shoot can be removed by pulling straight down. It snaps off. I then removed the display panel and the rectangular panel behind it to find the burned out selenoid that is suppose to open the discharge flapper. I removed the solenoid and placed two small pieces of Styrofoam packing sponge on the flapper movement to keep it closed until ice compresses it when dropped from the ice maker. This is not a perminate modification, but it should be OK until I can find a new solenoid and flapper mechanism.

Cuisinart ICAPP-4 – Iced Cappucino and Hot Espresso Maker – A Wiki Manual
By Tha Mp3 Doctor (who also loves Cuisinart)
Since I am not well-versed in the copyright laws regarding reprinting copies of standard user’s manuals online, I am writing this Wiki Manual for the ICAPP-4.My unit is 12 years old (in 2009) and continues to run strong through two different owners.
General Directions for Making Iced Cappuccinos -Place carafe on top of drip/tray grate with handle touching right front of ICAPP – the ice fill lines should be visible when looking at front of unit -Turn “milk knob” to OPEN position, and open lid of ICAPP -Remove milk container, espresso collector, espresso spinner cup and cover -Put espresso collector back in place with two plastic teeth facing front of machine -There is a stepped fill line inside water reservoir that measures off 1,2, and 4 cups -Fill water reservoir with either 1,2 or 4 fill line cups – do not overfill to avoid damaging the electronics -Add espresso grounds to espresso spinner cup -Line up teeth of spinner cup cover with spinner cup so that the cover locks into place -Fill milk reservoir with 3 oz of milk per cup of iced cappuccino that you plan to make – there is a fill line that measures off 2 cups or 4 cups -Fill carafe with either 2 cups worth of ice or 4 cups, depending on how much iced cappuccino you plan to make -Press down on lid and turn milk knob to HEAT postion -Turn ICAPP on using the ON/OFF button – it will begin to heat – takes about 5-6 minutes (HEAT light will stay on during this process – doesn’t make noise or steam for several minutes) -When READY light turns green, turn the milk knob to the DISPENSE MILK position – your espresso and milk will start dispensing -Unit turns itself off automatically when ready – takes several minutes
Three things could be wrong:
Solenoid switch where the water comes into the unit has gone, this control the flow of water into both the ice maker and the water dispenser.
If the switch is good and then you need to check your filters, sometimes inside the door top right. or on one of the corners on the bottom front.. You should be able to unscrew them with you hands.. make sure water is off behind unit or where ever your shut off is at.
One last thing.. check for kinks in the water line behind the unit if it was pulled out lately.
Sound like a water supply problem, as both get water from the same source. Both valves are connected to the water line that supplies water to the frig, in the back, bottom, behind the cardboard cover. Make sure the water valve is on for that line. The noises indicate thew valves are probably working, but are not getting any water.
