Ice Dispenser Door Stuck Open?

Is your ice dispenser door on your GE refrigerator not closing properly?  Sometimes you can simply tap or lift the door to close it but eventually, the door will stick in place and not close at all.  Once the door is stuck open it will create frost on the inside of the freezer and even begin dripping water on the outside.

This is a common issue with GE refrigerators as the solenoid that opens and closes the ice maker dispenser door gets corroded and stuck.  Fortunately, it is only takes about 10 minutes and a $25 part to fix.  there are a number YouTube videos demonstrating how to change the solenoid such as this one.

The solenoid for you’ll want to choose is the GE WR62X10055 Solenoid Assembly below but make sure you confirm your model number at the top of the page.

Replace the solenoid, which works; however, flap will not close after opening; everything was working before I cleaned the parts. It’s as though the flap is simply not weighted correctly.


Were you able to resolve this? I seem to behaving the same issue.


Any luck resolving? I’m having same issue.


Make sure you use the recess door spring – that will keep the flap closed without the door will not stay shut.
