To the Dojo,

Go out on this Amana SxS w/ "leaking" ice flapper. Open ice cream compartment--tight seal, no frost buildup, ice bin chute clean as a whistle. Put some light and eyes on flapper....and see it is "sweating." I notice the insulation of the flapper is uncovered and it is saturated with moisture. Since this product doesn't have a water line on that side and the flap seals well, I would replace the original equipment with this upgraded flapper (http://www.repaircli...R0000447/822937)? Critical comments, snide remarks, useful experience?

Thanks in advance,

Yes, the replacement flapper has a foam seal on the back of it, the old one does not.

Update:

Called back, customers (very nice Georgia Tech fans--surprise) stating "something's leaking." Arrive to find...a sealed-back ice chute door sweating!!! Other Amana SxSs I sell and service don't have this problem, but don't have any fancy chute flap heater. Couldn't I swap this dishonorable flap for another, known to possess no gland problems?

Thanks in advance for any useful comments,

Does the presence of a sweaty flap mean I got a lemon chute flap kit?

Check the freezer and refrigerator door gaskets. If they aren't sealing well you will get moisture at the ice dispenser chute flap.
