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.

SOURCE: ice dispenser will not switch back to cubed from crushed

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?

SOURCE: water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

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

I have a whirlpool 25 mssa And makes ice but not to much ice. How can I fix it?


So you are saying that the ice maker has not been producing ice like before correct? Are the Ice Cube's different in size or there anything different about the way they look or is it just there's a difference in volume suddenly? Can you give me a temperature of the freezer near the ice maker it should be at 5 degrees or below to properly operate ice production. Is there ice build up in the opening where the water comes in to fill the ice maker ?

Ice cubes are too thin. Making on time, but no volume due to small cubes. What part will correct this?


Well this thing is made to make ice cubes so if the ice cube are to small thin then you water supply must be restricted because its cold enough to make the ice just the volume of water isn't their .Check the feed system for restrictions .

My automatic ice maker has produced hollow cubes, foul tasting cubes and now they just made cubes with a green color in the middle. What's up?


Hollow cubes usually caused by lack of enough water during fill. My guess is green is mold buildup. Check house water supply to refrigerator. Sometimes the little shut off valves for the refrigerator block up and need cleaned or replaced. Once you get proper size cubes, if taste/ color problem persists they sell small in line filters you can add in the water line to the refrigerator.(about $25.)

WHY DOES MY ICE MAKER ONLY MAKES ICE SOMETIME


Are the cubes normal - the right size, not hollow? Once frozen and the harvest cycle begins, does it take longer than a couple minutes for the cubes to drop? After the ice drops does it fill with water each time?
If everything checks OK the last thing is very important. The rate at which an ice maker produces cubes depends on the temperature of the freezer - the colder it is the quicker the cycle. Try nudging the controls up a bit and wait 24 hours.

The scotsmand machine make ice, but quantity of the ice seems limited. The machine was descaled a month ago, no signs it needs serviced again. Could the cube sensor be faulty?


Take a can of compressed air and blow out the dust in the coil. If the coil can't get rid of the heat, it reflects in the amount of ice it produces.

How do you change the ice cube size on this model? I cannot locate the ice cube size button anywhere!?


Hello there
Normally
You can't change the shape. or the size of the ice that is produced s It's determined by the manufacturer of the ice maker. but if you have the adjustment feature on your icemaker than pull the front cover off of the icemaker ande their will be a round adjustment wheel with different letters along the side these represent the different sizes of the ice that can be produced
their should also be a diagram on the inside ov the cover that you just took off that will help explain the different settings ok
I hope that this is very helpfull for you.
Best regards Michael

My ice maker is letting too much water go into the ice tray so it freezes in a solid piece. Cubes do fall down but there is so much water it freezes into a solid block


The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.
