    Default French Door "flap" does not spring back when open

    Model Number: RF263TEAESR
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    When I opened the left door last week I heard something pop off the 'flap' on the right side of the door. I could not find anything so I do not know what it was. However, the 'flap' is no longer spring loaded to return to its proper position when opened. I would gladly replace the entire mechanism if I could find the part number or if possible I would replace whatever spring popped off. I have looked at my model in appliance stores and can see no obvious broken or missing parts....Help please. AlZ
