How to install spring on french door flapper/divider for Samsung RF266

Part number is DA81-01345A. I have the replacement part, but I can't figure out how to install the spring in the door flapper. Has anyone had this problem? Does the flapper need to be removed first? The spring keeps the flapper pointing in the correct direction when the door is opened and closed. Without the spring, the flapper just swings randomly and must be carefully aligned by hand while closing the door.

I am having a similar problem with the spring and the vertical flap. Is there a way to open up the vertical flap? I can't seem to get the spring out and i've already tried all suggestions.

On mine one end of the spring broke off in the hole on the door. It was on top of the hinge so it looked like a pivot pin. I found that this was the second hole for the spring. I pushed the end of the new spring up under the hinge and popped the broke piece of old spring out. Now I could see the 2 holes. You then need to put the spring into each hole. The hole on the flap also needs a white plastic sleeve if that is missing. that goes on the end of the spring and fits into the flap hole. Then the trick part is understanding how the spring works? If you put both ends of the spring in the holes and shut the flap, it now stays in position to close and be flipped open by the guide that swings it open to seal.

Good Luck.

Fridge problem could be the fan is bad or that it is hitting ice. When the noise is kind of a buzzing like it is hitting ice...defrost your unit by unplugging and waiting a day or so for full melt out...then check your door gaskets for cleanliness and good seal.

Thanks.

It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

I am trying to install a new heat motor on a frigidaire refrigerator model frs26zrg. I am having frost build up on front side of ice maker, assuming its from flapper not closing all the way.


I assume your frost is at the front of the ice bin? If so, your correct. Room temperature air is leaking in to a 0 degree environment and causing frost build up. First, I would see if the ice door closes 100% without spring by pressing your finger on the door. I've had bad ice doors that were warped. Next, inspect supporting rod and spring and make sure they look ok. An eye test should suffice. Next, without heat motor, the spring should keep door shut 100%. See if that helps, good luck!

The flapper on my exhaust fan is not closing


Most if not all exhaust fan flappers have a spring loaded door that will open when when the exhaust comes out and the springs will allow the door to shut completely. Check your local home store for replacement springs, if new springs are not available you may need to replace the part of the vent with the flapper on it, not very labor intensive but it is time consuming, as you need to remove whatever is being vented, like an over the range microwave or a vent hood.

Determine if it is a spring or the delay mechanism causing the problem. Purchase the necessary parts and install from the front of the door. The bezel can be removed as well as the controls for easier access.

Ice Dispenser "Flapper" is loose--How does it reattach?


the plastic arms that move the flapper door open and closed are broken. I had this happen to me some months back. You will need to buy a repair kit from your local dealer. Explain what is broken and they can look up their part/kit number. You can't buy just the plastic door. Mine cost about $30 but was worth the price of getting my ice maker dispenser operating again. Very minor mechanics required to open this portion of the mechanism. Mostly some removal of screws and a spring or two. Good luck.

Pin retainer broken off from ice dispenser housing


Ill be gald to help you here....The people who answer the phones must be worthless, anyway the part number is 8201756 (ice door kit) it will probably have to be specially ordered, i have installed several and there not exactly easy but it can be done with some patience. Pass this along to your repair guy as he is not giving people correct advice.
