Frigidaire Gallery Series Side by Side doesn't crush ice

Ice maker doesn't dispense crush ice now.

Dispenses water, makes ice cubes, dispenses ice cubes. Crushed Ice lever dispenses whole ice cubes with a few ice splinters.

    It's actually a Frigidaire side by side Gallery professional series FRS24ZSF and it is similar to many other Gallery models.

    But if you are talking about the metal arm which swings up as ice is made, it is still moving. Ice cubes are still being made and filling the bin. Ice cubes still come out the front when you press the glass to the outside lever.

    But when you swing the knob from the cubed ice to crushed ice, only cubed ice still comes out with a few ice splinters like the crushed ones that use to.

    Sure hope you can help!

    Sorry -- called away, back now. Still dealing with issue of got water, got ice but doesn't dispensed crushed ice. You asked if front panel pulls off - it did. There was a second cover underneath which I pulled off to find wiring. Totally lost at this point so I put both panels back on. Still dispenses water and ice cubes, so no foul.

    But what do I do now- do I need an electrician?

    There are normal cubes in the container. No matter the control setting, only crushed ice dispensed. The water dispenser works fine.

    hi there,

    sounds good, just wanted to make sure that the arm isn't stuck.

    in this case it must be one of the 3 microswitches behind the dispenser.

    would you have the capability to take the front casing off the dispenser?

Ice maker dispenses cruched ice in cube ice mode

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid.
With your model number I can find a diagram which may help.

Can't make ice cubes only crushed ice

Hi: There is a flap right where the ice dispenses. When you remove the bin you will see it when inverted. This flap has to open for the ice to be cubed. You might rember a slap as it swung open when it worked. There is a bar that runs from the flap to the back of the dispenser. Work it manually to see if it's jammed or broken. If not look at the back of the freezer and remove the metal panel if neccessary, to find the jam or defective part. I hope this helps, Jeff

Ice maker only dispenses crushed ice, won't dispense cubed ice anymore.

I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.

I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice

Pull out your ice bin. In the back of the bin you will see a rod protruding from one side. That rod goes into an opening in the rear of the freezer. There is a solenoid behind that opening that raises and lowers the arm on the ice bin giving you crushed or cubed ice. Check to see if that solenoid is froze up or if your rod got stuck under it. If all check ok then replace that solenoid.

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice

Check and make sure your switch is okay. Some have a switch that controls whether you want crushed or cubes. If it is defective replace it.
