Question (about Refrigerators)
Ice dispenser door won't close
I have a GE Profile side by side with the ice & water dispenser on the freezer door. The ice dispenser works fine but the little round door covering the hole where the ice is dispensed won't close. This causes outside air to get in to the freezer comparment and frost builds up
The ice disensor door is held shut with a spring or piston assembly. When you dispence ice a cylenoid energizes and opens the door. It should then slowly close.
1. The hinge, spring, or piston and or related parts are broken. Replace as needed.
2. Some times the cylenoid burns out and melts the related parts. Again, replace all damaged parts as needed and check ice dispensor controls, switches and related parts.
Provide me with a model number for more details

If you dont want to replace it you can jam something in front of the door to keep it shut.
