I have Frigidaire side by side frig/freezer model

Customer Question

I have Frigidaire side by side frig/freezer model PHSC39EGSS0. The water and ice unit on the door has problems. Water side - the dispenser lever has s broken off. I believe I can fix that and have found the $78 part. The bigger problem is the ice dispenser. The dispenser lever will open the ice flap (which is number 30 on the schematic), but the ice flap does not close when I release the lever and ice continues to dispense.

I took apart the the unit and see that the water dispenser has spring loaded shut off.  If the ice dispenser is supposed to have a spring loaded shut off (one that WOULD be just to the left of the water shutoff spring) there is not a spring, perhaps it came off. ???

If it is not a spring, what operates the ice dispensing shut off?

How do I fix it?
