I have the same problem; been doing some reading and it sounds like a solenoid problem. There's apparently a solenoid behind the ice maker that controls the crushed/cubed option. So either the switch is bad, the wiring is bad, or the solenoid is bad. Just my guess, but that's where I'm leaning so far.

My ice maker produces ice just fine, however when I try to receive "Cubed Ice" it dispences it "Crushed". It makes no difference if the front panel "Cubed Ice" button is pushed or the "Crushed Ice" button...

Not sure what brand you have but I had a similar problem with a dispenser once. The ice dispenser would freeze up and couldn't change over from one to the other and I'd have to take it out and let it thaw occasionally and then it would be fine for several months again. If your ice bin is in the door this may be what you need to do.

Will not dispence ice, crushed or solid cubes, will dispence h2o


If the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

and if the ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" and revert for further assistance.

Ice cube button is lite but the only dipenses crushed ice

We have had this problem on occasion. The lever up in the ice dispencer gets jammed with frost and ice. If you remove the ice bucket/auger and let it thaw or just rinse it with water and dry it. Give it a try. -Matt
