Introduction

If you try to use the ice dispenser on a GE Refrigerator (SN:GSL25IGXL LS), but the ice is getting stuck in the refrigerator door, this could be a sign that the solenoid is bad.

The solenoid is connected to an insulated flap that will open and close when using the ice dispenser.

Before using this guide, check the flap where the ice is dispensed to make sure there is no debris. If there is something blocking the flap from opening , remove the debris and try to use the ice dispenser.

Before starting, make sure all power is shut off, you will be touching a circuit board.
