Question about Frigidaire FRS26H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator
Seems like the ice maker is "howling" or whooshing, in a pulsing type manner. Not overly load, but noticable. The unit makes ice and dispenses both water, cubes and crushed just fine, but the noise has been there, off and on for a few weeks ? GE side by side model # GSC23LGQB, BB
I looked at the plastic piece the solenoid was moving (from Guest's comment 03/07/08). Pushed the plastic piece up (had to push pretty hard) and it reset the solenoid to its' start/beginning position(-?) Plastic piece came back to lower position - was free to move up and down. The solenoid is working now (hear the loud clicking and see it pulling the plastic piece up) to get cubed ice, instead of putting it thru the crusher.

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!

could be that the ice maker arm is getting stuck or may have some frost on it. can you supply the complete model # please?

There is a solinoid in the freezer section by the motor that turns the ice auger. Test it by selecting cubes and with the ice bucket out, open the door, hold the door switch so the lights turn out and push the dispenser button. It should make a loud snap and travel upward. If not then I would say you have a bad solinoid. If it does, then I would look at the bucket. the metal rod that runs along the side of the bucket opens a flap in the bucket that is supposed to let the full cubes drop. look for anything that might cause it to be hanging up.

chek these sites
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
