Question about Kenmore 55692 / 55694 Side by Side Refrigerator
The Ice make shows cubed ice on front but you always get crushed Ice. The lite changes when pressing buttons but we no longer get cubed ice. Did something get out of sync?
This was easy to solve after reading some posts which mention "a plastic flap" which is opened or partially closed by the metal rod running under the ice cube tray.
There is indeed a flap which is inside the front of the removable ice holder/dispenser. The flap should be able to open fully so ice can fall out. In mine it could only move 1/2 inch because the flap was laying on the wrong side of a small peg which guides it.
I was unable to free the flap to open completely by pressing on it, so I had to unscrewed six screws to take off the front plastic facing and the on the front plastic housing. Pushing on the metal rod immediately put the flap back into it's correct position. I then replaced the plastic front.
I can now have either whole cubes or crushed. Boy was that easy to fix!
A repairman recommended replacing the electronics ! !
I assume this misalignment might be caused by too much pressure when the ice cubes freeze solid or something? If it happens again, I know it's easy to fix.

I've had the same problem for a year now, the problem with mine is that the freezer is getting to cold and busting the cubes. replaced circuit and temp switchs twice. still the same problem, now im calling Samsung.

I had this same problem and all I did was empty all the ice out and cleaned the forks that turn. I did notice that there were some cubes stuck under the long rod that turns to dispense the ice. When I put the ice back in, it was working fine. I have not tried crushed ice again though.

I was only getting crushed ice and I emptied out the ice holder and cleaned the fork that turns and when I put the ice back in, it started dispensing whole ice like it was supposed to. I had noticed that there was some ice stuck under the turning device in the bottom of the ice holder, so I figured it must have kept it from turning properly.
