Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Do you have a model number so that I can better assist you? It should be located on a sticker near the ceiling of the refrigerator section.

OK so this ice chute flap door has been completely re-designed because often times the black plastic hinge or bracket breaks and needs to be replaced. So below is a link to the new kit if you remove the front face and find anything broken. The kit comes with instructions.

As for how to remove the front face of the dispenser so that you can look around the dispenser to see what might be wrong, below is a video that shows you how to remove the front face of the dispenser.
