Ice dispensor only dispensing crushed ice - not cubed

I have a GE GSH22JFTA, everything works fine (light,water,etc) but the ice dispensor only dispenses crushed ice. I've tried defrosting everything, emptied and cleaned the ice bin, but nothing seems to work.
Each button (cubed/crushed) emits crushed ice only.
Any ideas?

The spring coming off the rod will also cause this problem, also the bypass flap may be stuck open, always check the simple things first, hope this helps.

Make sure that your ice tray is properly instaled. There is a rod that must go into a hole. When you select ice cubes rather than crushed ice a solenoid raises which moves that rod. It then opens a flap so the cubes can bypass the crusher. Either your rod is not in the hole correctly or the solenoid has gone bad. The rod that I am speaking of runs along the underside of the ice tray. It has a spring on the rear end that holds the bypass flpa closed.

    Wow, thanks so much. I was searching for an answer to the same question and your mentioning the rod was right on target. The little lever had come off the little ridge it sits in and I am now getting cubed ice. Thanks soooo much.

GE refrig/freezer dispenser makes ice, but no dispensing of water


The dispensor water line , is probably trying to freeze , inside the door . raise the freezer control slightly warmer , to keep this from happening . May take 2 or 3 raisings to find the proper temp . Also , you can order a dispensor heat kit , pt # WR49X10173 , which comes with installation instructions .

GE PSS25MGMA Crushed ice only, nothing else will select on panel.


Yes , replace the main board . Part number WR55X10656 . There is only partial communication between the main board and the dispensor board . This main board , is behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , on the back of the refrig . Do not replace the dispensor board . I have never come across a bad dispensor board yet . Always a first time though .

GE GSH25KGMD Crushed Ice Only


Remove the ice bin . Set the dispensor for cube and push in the door switch . Press the dispensor pad and you should hear a loud bang . If your looking inside at the same time , you should see a square white "gate" lift . This gate lifts to lift the rod on the ice bucket to give cubed ice . If this gate does not lift , then the auger solenoid is probably bad . Part # WR62X58

Ice maker not dispensing ice


If the dispensor light switches to cubed or crushed , the panel is good . Remove the ice bin , and hold the light switch in . Press the arm for CRUSHED ice , and if you hear a buzzing or hum , then the auger motor is frozen . Use a hair dryer directly on the " forks " for a while , ocasionally holding switch and activating arm , until the forks move . Lower the freezer temp slightly and reinstall the ice bin .

Ice maker only dispenses crushed ice, won't dispense cubed ice anymore.


I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.

I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

Pull out the ice drawer and close the door switch the crushed /cubed button put the ice drawer back in and switch the selector button again. You might have to repeat the process I had the problem this week and by jiggling everything around and running a good bit of ice thru it started working again. Good luck

Water dispensor


It longer pushes in? It doesn't listen to you? It might be the switch. These units pass the water line through the door. Is it jammed or open? Turn off the water, disconnect the line at the base of the door hinge and then turn the water on...with an assistant to catch the water. If there is flow from that point, you have a hint as to where to go next.
