Ice dispenser flapper door won't close - Whirlpool Side By Side
Hello! I have a Whirlpool side by side fridge that came with my house when I bought it.
The flapper door on the ice maker won't close after I dispense ice. It stays about half open.
I tried closing it with my hand, and sometimes it'll close but this time it's stuck.
For the time being, I have a rag shoved down the ice chute so cold air doesn't leak out of the freezer. Before I did that, the ice would melt and freeze the door shut.
I've done some reading on this, but I couldn't find a definitive answer. Some people said there's a "repair kit". Some people said there's a stuck part.
Not sure who to believe.
Anyone have this issue before?
