A common problem on these models is the solenoid that changes the mode from crushed to cubed has frosted over/frozen over. Sometimes this happens if the freezer door is left open. Slide the ice bin out of the freezer section, and notice where the lever on the end of the ice bin goes into what looks like a plastic "square" on the left side of the box. That "square" is the end of the solenoid and it should move freely by hand. It is probably frozen stiff. If this is the case, sometimes you can get away with thawing it out with a hair dryer, but I usually find I have to take theat whole assembly out of the freezer, thaw it out and then dry up the parts, as it sometimes will just re-freeze if you don't get the excessive moisture off the solenoid plunger.

I hope this helps.

Ice crusher stuck on crush mode can't swith back to cube


is it push button or do you manually have to turn dial from crush to cube. I have push button and had this problem once before.(LG side by side) I turned off at power (remove cord from wall) and removed ice tray all together. save some ice for testing. Check to see if crush part was clean. Put ice back in container and put back together and turn back on at power point. See if you can have cubed now.

Ice maker dispenses cruched ice in cube ice mode


You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid.
With your model number I can find a diagram which may help.

Only puts out crushed ice


Pull out the ice bin and set aside. On the back wall of the freezer where the auger drive coupling is, to the right and down below the locator pin, is a square opening....make sure that the actuator is in the down position. if stuck in up position, it will always crush the ice. We have had the same problem with our frigidaire. The actuator is connected to the "crushed ice" solenoid.

ICE Maker stuck in dispensing crushed Ice


That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working.

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.

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.

Always dispenses CRUSHED ice


try removing the ice bucket, and on the back wall is a hole approx 1.5 inches square that the brass bar attached to the rear of ice container inserts into,(you may have to put hte container back in partilaly to look under and watch where it slides into) inside thatcut-out is a plunger that slides up and down activating the crushed/cubed option.you can sick you finger in the hole you should seee a plastic hoop that would catch the brasss bar.Try pushing and pulling hte hoop up and down if it does not move freely, youll need to replace the solenoid assy. if it does, then pull allthe way to the lowest positon and make sure when replacing the ice container that the bar falls with in the hoop itself
