Customer Question

Model GC-L197STF
Ice maker forces freezer door open when used - rotates to deliver ice but does not deliver any or much ice, the ice tray appears to push forward and thus pushes the door open. Can happen when fridge unattended, everything then defrosts.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The auger motor coupling or the coupling on the ice bucket is likely loose. Also, the bucket may be coming loose under pressure. Does the ice bucket lock into place? Is the bucket clear of any ice jams?

Thank you, ***** ***** does not appear that any of those issues apply in this case.Peter

Is the auger in the bucket staying in place on both ends?
