Yesterday my French Door Frigidaire FGHB2844LFE quit dispensing ice.  The Paddle Limit Switch and Flapper Limit Switch check good
in the Diagnostics menu.  In test 36 I can cycle the door ice flapper, but it only cycles quickly.  It never stays open until I close it.
To me that means the Ice Flapper Relay coil isn't getting energized to latch the door ice flapper open so the Auger starts turning and
dispensing ice.

What could be causing the Relay to not be energized by the Refrigerator control board?  If, I quickly stick my finger under the door ice flapper
and toggle the paddle, it will dispense a bit of ice until it's blocked by my fingers, so everything is functional, except the latching of the relay
contact to hold the door ice flapper open.

Ideas or suggestions for further troubleshooting?

Change out the flapper assembly, spring gets bad.
