Question about GE Monogram ZIR36NMRH Refrigerator
What is the average mass or volume of an ice cube your produced in a standard size refrigerator?
First pull out the ice bucket and close the door. Set for cubed ice. Press the button for ice to come out and listen for a loud clunk noise. That is the sound of the solenoid. You can open the door, hold the light switch and press the button and watch for the solenoid moving up and down. Solenoid is at the back of the freezer in a little square opening where the rod on the ice bucket goes into. If that solenoid is moving ok then put the bucket back in while the solenoid is in the down position and cubes should work. If solenoid is not working then it will need to be replaced. Let me know what you find.

Most likely nothing broken. Just pull out the ice bucket. You will see a metal rod along the bottom area that protrudes into a hole in the back of the freezer. That gizmo has to move up and down freely to set the crusher / cube arm in the correct position. You should be able to move it up and down with your finger. If not, it may be frozen, or have a bad solenoid.

Had the same problem, dispenser stuck on crushed ice, even when cubed ice is selected. There is a magnetic switch behind the panel where the motor for the ice dispenser is. It gets water in it and freezes so it is not free to go up and down. It is always down for crushed, but for cubed ice, the magnet pulls it up. when it's frozen with ice, all you'll get is crushed. You'll have to defrost it. You can defrost the whole freezer, but better to just remove the ice dispenser and defrost that. Three 1/4'' bolts hold secure it. You'll have to unplug the wires from the back of the freezer to remove the unit. The just let it defrost and dry. You can remove the switch from the panel and dry it out too. I've had to to this several times and am looking for a solution to keeping water out of the thing so it won't freeze again. Has anybody solved that?

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.
