Is the black flapper at the bottom of the ice chute where the ice exits unit included in the chute? Will that failure to close cause ice buildup around ice maker?
Answer Curt, the flapper is not included in the ice chute part number WR17X4253. The flapper is part number WR17X11653. Yes, failure of the flapper closing will cause air to enter into the freezer causing ice build-up. Hope this helps, thanks!
