How do I take the Front cover off my ice dispenser on my model 106.57022601 side by side Kenmore Coldspot. The flap doesn't close all the way.

The chute door for the ice maker does not close all the way and allows air to enter which warmer air than the ice maker and melts the ice which then always freezes over.

I can understand how inconvenient it is to have the ice dispenser not working correctly. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found a link that will provide the instructions for removing the front cover. It will also tell you how to fix the flap. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about the chute door. You have received some good information from Anne. I'm attaching a picture with instructions to remove the cover. Be sure to disconnect power to the unit first. If the door seems ok but is just not closing, usually replacing the complete door mechanism assembly # 8201649 will correct this problem. It's available at
