Hello,

Is the flap on the front moving back and forth?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
the dispensor flap? .. .if so, no
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 5 years ago.
Yes ok good. This is a very common issue on this unit. I can get the part number if you would like. You need to replace the HV board located on the back of the unit. Its very easy.

Let me know

Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 5 years ago.
I figured so it's very common. You need to replace the HV board on the back. it's very simple to repair yourself. I can get you the part number if you would like.

Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 5 years ago.
If you are handy, yes. It will not cool correctly in most cases.

Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 5 years ago.
