It may help to take the ice maker plastic unit out of the refrigerator and rinse with warm water, then dry. There may be ice blocking the flap from closing. Also, check to see that the plastic unit is fully seated as it should be in the refrigerator itself.

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.

See the post on Samurai Appliance Repair Man's site http://applianceguru.com/forum1/13035-1.html for instructions on how it's possible to fix the HV Controller Board power supply filter caps for $5 in Radio Shack parts (really!). You need to be able to solder electronic components, or know someone who can. There are 2 power supply filter caps that appear to go bad and the result is the blinking and flapping. I had the same problem and decided I could not wait for a $150 replacement back-ordered board.

SOURCE: GE Icemaker flap door won't open causes ice jam in chute

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.

SOURCE: THE ICE DOOR PROBLEM

Budd, if you want to stop the flapping until service shows up to replace the high voltage board do the following: remove the drip tray, remove the 2 screws under the drip tray. From the bottom, where you removed the screws, pull out and up. The whole disp cover lifts off. Unplug the 2 harness going to the board on the dispenser. The refrigerator will still operate normally minus the dispenser. Catriver.

The ice does not dispense from the chute. The chute freezes up and the ice can no longer travel down the chute and out the dispenser. Can this be fixed?


Yes the flap is supposed to close completly to stop the moist kitchen air freezing in the chute and blocking it

Ice cube door between freezer and outside is not closing. Appears loose or disengaged from closing mechanism.


Generally, ice cubes sometimes get stuck on the flexable cover and will not close properly if they get stuck between the flap and the chute. A hair dryer blasting on the flap will dislodge them and let the mechanism close properly

Freezer keeps running


yes,you need to pull the front panel on the ice maker off to get to the solinoid that opens and closes the flap,with the flap vranked open you are letting cold air out and warm air in and that makes frost,if you don't want to try and fix it your self put a cloth towel in the chute to block the air lose and call an honest local appliance repair person-mike

Ice maker chute icing up


The flap is probably not closing properly. Dispense some ice, then open the freezer door and look to see if the flap is still slightly open. If so, you will have to take the front cover off of the control panel and clean the muck off of the flap mechanism and also clean the solenoid. I have to do this about 2X year. Not a big job, but be careful.

Ice dispenser flap/door will not close properly


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.
