I'm getting ice crystal build-up in the ice dispenser chute of my GE Profile Artica side-by-side refrigerator.  I think it might be because the ice dispenser damper door may not be closing all the way (if I peer down the ice dispenser chute from the inside of the refrigerator door, I can see that the door is sometimes slightly ajar at the end of the chute).

My questions:

1.  Do you think the damper door is the problem?  Can it be something else?

2.  If I purchased and replaced the new damper door (Item # 1032671) would that be sufficient to solve the problem?  Would I need to replace the spring and/or its assembly?

3.  How do I replace the door/spring/assembly?  I can't seem to find an obvious way of opening up the ice dispenser chute assembly to access the door and its spring.

Thanks.

There is a repair kit for this well known problem, I do not know it right at this time.  The front  should pull off and you will need the coil also since it will be all rusted.

Read this then post your complete model number.  Don't buy anything yet  .  Oh Wise and Mighty Samurai, Exalted Grand Master of Appliantology,  the Damper you linked to is an air damper.  It will do nothing for a frosty ice chute.  If the complaint were freezing fresh food that damper would be the one of the 1st things I'd check.

My model number is PSC23MGMBWW.  Do you happen to know if this model has the same defect as the GSS22JEMDWW model that was discussed in the post string that you referenced in your last posting?

Thank you in advance.

   If it has the same defect it hasn't been acknowledged.   Open the freezer door.  Take a long handled wooden spoon and push the ice chute door open from the inside.  Open it and let it close slowly.  Do this up to 20 times.  If it sticks open at all you'll need a chute door solenoid and a chute door.   You may only need a chute door if it's not sealing correctly.  You can even try to save it by soaking the black rubber part it in hot water then re-installing it

I'm having the same problem with my ice flapper door.  I have a GE model #TFS26PPDABS.  Do I have to take anything apart to replace the door?
