The fliper is busted off on my ice maker and now the ice often dumps on the floor or on the top shelf, not sure what this flipper does? Could replacing the flipper fix my problem?
ANSWER Hello Milton,
The flipper 2198633 goes on the left side of freezer liner and is used to stop the icemaker from going into a harvest mode when door is open. If the icemaker has already gone into a harvest before opening door it will continue cycle. The flipper will keep the ice compartment door from opening and dropping ice everywhere if the door is open. If you are missing the guide [W10297244] on the front of the icemaker this would cause the ice to fall all over the freezer when the door is closed. If this is missing you would want to install new one.
