What if the plasitic pieces the flapper snaps into on the dispenser housing is broken?
Answer Hello Patrick,
You will need to order part number 8201756 and read the instructions carefully before attempting this parts' installation. You should also practice putting the part into the proper position before removing the coating on the reverse side that covers the adhesive side. It will stick so hard that it will destroy the adhesive to pull it back off. This is why you need to practice, so you will be able to get the part closely lined up so the door will seal. One hint that I find useful: Do not cut off the old hinge points. You can use them to line the new part up and the closer it is lined up, the better the ice door will seal and the lower the possibility of a repeat problem.
How does the seal attach to the arm that opens the ice chute?
Answer David, the flapper attaches to the pivot arm by Pressure, it snaps into the pins on the arms. Heres some help : "1. Disconnect the unit from the power source. 2. To remove the grill from the fountain sump, pull straight out. 3. Remove the two escutcheon mounting screws.
4. Carefully raise the escutcheon up and off the fountain assembly. 5. Disconnect the quick disconnect edge connector from the PC fountain switch board. 6. Remove the three fountain bracket mounting screws. 7. Carefully pull the assembly out of the fountain housing. You now have full access to solenoid, dispenser mechanism, PC fountain control board and light socket. 8. To repair the assembly, disconnect electrical quick disconnect.". Thanks and Good Luck
