This just started happening the past few days... when we ask for ice by putting the cup in the dispenser, the auger motor works just fine, but the flapper-door doesn't open. Thus, ice builds up behind it, and becomes a mess when we open up the door.

I can manually hold the door open while holding a cup underneath (that's quite a trick too!), but would like to figure what's keeping the flapper door from automatically opening by itself.

Turn the water supply to the frige off

Start by popping cover #53 of the dispenser (just pulls off)

Remove screws that are holding in item # 48

It will be tight because you need to leave the wires attached to item #39

With you volt meter check to see if your getting 120 VAC to the coil item #36 when you push the ice paddle. If you are then the coil is bad or the are on the end of the flapper item # 67 may be broken. If your not getting voltage then you time delay board item # 39 is probably bad.


Here are the links to the parts you "may" need.

OK, see attached picture. I measured voltage at the top of the coil (at the tippity top, where there wasn't an insulator on the connector), and had the icemaker set to dispense. (The coil - where the red colored wire is on the left, and I believe orange on the right.)

No 120V. So, I'm guessing the board, right?

(Nope, don't know why the iPhone flipped the picture. <grin>;)

Yep looks like you need a board...I've never seen those 2 wires not have insulated ends, that's kind of odd.

I went ahead and ordered the board finally. After I shut off the water and power to the fridge, anything I should know that should keep this from being a straightforward "take the old one out and put the new one in"?

Thanks.
