I have a ge fridge model gfss6kkycss. The flapper in the ice/water

This answer was rated:

I have a ge fridge model gfss6kkycss. The flapper in the ice/water dispenser is not closing after dispensing. I would like to remove the panel to see if it is simply a spring (since the flapper moves, just won't close). I only see one screw underneath the buttons and am not sure if the panel cover pops off with a putty knife and don't want to force it. how does the cover come off on that model?

So that should pop off the whole cover? I need to find something thin enough to fit in the narrow slot

yes pop the Dispenser Façade off, the best thing to use is a thin putty knife.

Ok. In looking at pics you sent the face looks different. Mine has no Reset Filter, Turbo Freeze, Turbo cool. Anyway I tried popping with putty knife and can't seem to pop it right. Probably need to have someone come out. Thanks for your help.

okay well the facade may look different some have extra functions but it still comes outthe same but if your afraid of breaking it maybe your better off having someone out, thanks and best wishes, Bryan
