Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

Ice door flapper does not open

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?

    I have the same problem. The flapper does not open. We looked at the solenoid and there was black stuff coming out the side of the solenoid body and the solenoid was burnt up. Why would it do that?

    Ice dispenser flapper does not open. I pried loose the front panel frame but can not remove it to see behind it because the ice shoot projects down into the front panel rear wall. HOW DO i GET BEYOND THIS POINT TO INSPECT THE SELINOID?

    PS I found that closing down on the water supply valve, restricting the water flow to the refridgerator solved my ice maker problem. But now the darn flapper won't open and let it out.

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.

    I have the same problem with my LG LFX25971ST I do not know how to get these panels off and check the Selenoid for the flapper. The ice maker is working fine the flapper will not open to dispense ice. Been using my fingers to hold open flapper and get my ice. Any help on how to check the flapper selenoid or where to get a Selenoid if I find it is bad would be greatly appreciated.

Water and ice dispenser does not work---the switch clicks when you press it but there is not response, also the ice maker just quit working


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.

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.

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/.
