Ge gss25jemc ice in door keeps freezzing up The small flapper door on the in door ice dispenser does not close all the way. It causes frost to build up on the dispenser. I only get crushed ice, even when selecting cubes. Is there a spring on the door that keeps it closed? Is it hard to replace? Thanks for the help. Dennis

Flapper door diagram is here, you can see how the spring, etc. work to hold the door closed. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/GE/00113173i04.gif As for the crushed ice, (item 384) on the next diagram shows the little lever that lifts the side rod on the bin (item 329) to decide if cubes or crushed comes out. The solenoid (item 383) can get frozen up and not move. Take a look where screw (item 371) is, that little square window is where the device that lifts the rod is. Take a hair dryer and heat that area REAL good to melt the frozen solenoid mechanism. Test it every now and then by holding the door light switch off and pressing the cubed selection & lever. You should hear a very loud "clank" as the solenoid pull in to lift the rod on the bin.
