Frigidaire side by side model GLHS68EJQO ice maker problems

I have a side by side that has ice maker problems. When you try to dispense ice cubes, it throws out cubes, broken cubes, and crushed ice. The repairman said that it is a defective design by Frigidaire, and they do not have a fix for it. He said he has one too that does the same thing, and he has to remove the ice tray every couple of weeks, empty the ice from it, and use a blow dryer to melt off the excessive frost from the dispenser. He said that the auger is crushing the ice into the front where it is trying to move them through the opening, coupled with the build up of frozen frost at the opening that is causing the problem. If that is the case, I can't believe they are still selling this piece of ****. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: crushed ice only

Behind the ice bucket is a metal housing that holds the auger motor and solenoid.  The solenoid is bad.  When you go for cubed ice that solenoid should pull up the metal rod on the ice bucket so full cubes will come out.  First check to make sure the metal rod on the ice bucket isn't somehow caught under the solenoid and not letting if move up and down.  You can take out the ice bucket and press for cubed ice.  You should hear a loud clunk noise.  If not then you know the solenoid is not working.

SOURCE: icemaker only dispenses crushed ice, not cubes

yea! I have been without cubes for 2 years. I slid out the tray, found the lever in the back where the rod went in, pulled it down, reinserted the ice tray, and IT WORKED! At first I thought I broke the lever, because I had to hold it down with a knife while I was inserting the tray, but it just must have been stuck. I am soooo happy!

hi.

chek these sites
http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/refrigerator-freezer-repair/23620-ice-maker-only-makes-crushed-ice-no-cubes.html

There is an opening next to the auger that dispenses the ice. In there there is a lever that must move up and down. It actually seats the metal rod on the bottom of the ice maker and controls cube or crushed. Make sure the lever is down (cube position) when you return the basket to the freezer. I had to hold it down while I slid the rod into the opening. Cubes again. http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/showthread.php?t=783

SOURCE: can't make ice cubes only crushed ice

In my case, the metal bar on the bottom was stuck in a position that would not allow it to rotate to push cubes to the front of the unit. Simply grab the bar- and unstick it! Cubes now!!

Ice maker crushes ice but wont dispense Crushed ice


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23H7CS, is crushing your ice, but will not dispense the crushed ice. It sounds like the dispenser is possibly jammed. Follow the following steps for a possible resolution:

    1)The ice has melted and frozen around the auger due to infrequent use, temperature fluctuations, and/or power outages. Remove the ice container, thaw, and empty the contents. Clean the container, wipe dry, and replace it in the proper position. When new ice is made, dispenser should operate.

    2)Ice cubes are jammed between the ice maker and the back of ice container. Remove the ice cubes that are jamming the dispenser.

    3)Ice cubes could be frozen together. Use the dispenser often so that cubes do not freeze together.

    4)The ice cubes are hollow or smaller than normal. The ice & water filter cartridge could be clogged. Replace the filter cartridge. Dispensing system operates best at 20 - 100 psi water pressure. Well water pressures should fall within this range.

    If the above does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and try dispensing crushed ice. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

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.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

Problems with ice maker


Bsbbj,
If the cubes are fusing together (such as when you overfill an ice tray), your solution could be as simple as adjusting the fill volume (there should be an adjustment under the front plastic cover, and the cover should just pop off and snap back on unless you see screws attaching it) and when your ice maker was replaced this probably wasn't calibrated correctly. Your mention of the side of the maker bulging also leads me to believe the water is overflowing and freezing within the dispenser (causing it to bulge and not dispense).
I hope this helps and Good luck.
