Re: ice door opener
Can you reach down from inside door and push open door easily? If it is hard to open, check to see if freezer door seal is held on by numerous screws. If so press on inner door panel and see if makes crunching sound. If so it will probably need a set of doors. GE has a program where they replace both doors, no charge if in the program.

The little door that opens and lets the ice fall into Your cup is not closing all the way, allowing cold air to escape from Your Freezer and causing frost to build up. Simply look up at it or open the Freezer door and place a lit flashlight in the ice chute so You can see where the light is shining through the ice dispenser at. There should be a build-up of ice there that is keeping the "trap door" from closing all the way. Clean that off and You should be as good as new.
thanks for that help...now how do you fix the flapepr door. We had the same ice problem adn we are having problems w/ the ice flowing out through the flapper door. It gets stuck and you have to reach your hand up to push the ice out. Thanks!
Check the black 2" fill hose going from the top of the freezer to the ice maker fill cup , to see if it's frozen up . Also check the optics system for proper operation . Open the freezer door and the laser should flash 2 times , pause , flash2 times , pause etc. Close the flap on the left side and the laser should go off . If the laser does not come on when the door is opened , then the ice maker is in the harvest ( dump ) mode . If it stays this way , then ice maker is bad .
Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . Also , check the black fill hose that fill the ice maker , to make sure it is not frozen . If the ice maker dumps the cubes , then replace the water inlet valve . If the ice maker holds the ice , and does not dump , replace the ice maker . When you open the freezer door , the laser light , should blink twice , then pause ,repeatedly . If you close the flap on the left side , the laser should go off . These are indication that the optics are good . If you open the door , and no laser light , then that means that the ice maker is in the harvest (dump) mode . If it stays this way , ice maker is bad .
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/.
