Fridgidaire with crushed ice problem

Sorry - got called away - back now and still dealing with side by side that makes ice and gives water but doesn't crush ice. You asked if front panel comes off - it does. I also pulled the next panel off and saw wires but stopped because I clearly don't what to do at this point.

Can you continue the vein of questioning and tell me what I'm looking for to fix this? Is it possible for me to fix or should I have an expert at this point?

It sounds like you should have a qualified technician to come and take a look if you have never opened the ice dispenser before, due to the fact that you have electrical and water line in almost the same place and that could be dangerous.

call a technician and you can have a look when he's there to get more exposure to these types of problems.

thanks again for letting me help.

The icemaker on my older kenmore side by side refrigerator doesn't make ice?


What you are probably dealing with is the little valve called (Water Valve) on the back of side of the refrigerator usually down low towards the bottom right hand side if you are facing the back of unit. Its the part that the water line run into and also will be a water line coming out of it going up the back of the fridge and goes thru into the freezer to the Ice maker in the freezer

Ice maker dispenses crushed ice in the cube setting. Water and crushed ice are fine.


Typical of a switch failure / control module failure so it sticks on the crushed ice setting or the crushing mechanism is u/s and wont turn off. Call a service engineer asap.

The ice maker on my Fridgidaire will only give crushed ice, even though we've never pushed that button. We only want cubes.


check to see if your ice solenoid on the rear of the ice maker bracket is seized up with ice. if so you can remove this and run warm water over to unseize solenoid. remove ice bucket and u should be able to see the solenoid close to rear wall. it is attached to the metal bracket that holds the ice bucket in place. usually two quarter in screws holds it in place

Kenmore frig ice machine doesn't make cube ice


Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.

Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.

Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.

Ice dispenser crushes ice when cube is pushed


the little gate/door, is a common issue, its a solenoid htat either burns out, or merelt freezes over. if you put your finger into where teh "shepard hook" supposed otgo, can you freely lift it ip and down???i would assum not, .the entire ***,bly lifts out of freezer( remove 2 1/4 inch scres under each corner and diconnect apower plug behind the ice maker. from ther you can try to defrost teh piston,if not rplace it.

Ice maker stuck on ''crushed'' ice


i think it's simpler than that. there's a plastic gate that snaps UP for cubed and DOWN for crushed.
When you remove the tray, set it to CRUSHED, BEFORE putting the tray back in place.

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.
