https://res.cloudinary.com/dtk4ybaqk/image/private/t_wm_4copyright_420/prod/j3kntwpq8qm7shkd8pkz.jpgI can find a Fountain ice door kit for £93.31, which fits the GS2728GEHB model, i.e. mine. Is that what you mean?Thanks,
Rocky.

I can't find a new cover for the cubed ice and water buttons, i.e. the black cover for the ice and water dispenser in the spares lists. Can you help with this?
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Hi Rocky,Im not sure what question this was in reference to?Can you elaborate? Was this one with a bad ice maker or the one with the flapper issue?Thanks Rocky.Tech Michael

Sorry for the confusion.
There are two problems. One is the failed flap door for the ice. I found a kit in the spares pages for £93.51 and the link in my previous message shows you a picture of what is in the kit.
The other problem is that there are holes in the black front cover where the buttons for cubed ice and water sit behind. I thought I would find a replacement for that cover in the spares but I couldn't find one.
I'll phone them and ask directly.Rocky

They were able to find the fountain ice dispenser kit and I have successfully fitted it, with the help of a youtube video. They couldn't find a front cover for the dispenser but this is not too important at all. It is now working well.
Cheers,Rocky.
