    That was too easy. Thank you very much

    Same problem but KRSP25FN model.


    We always use cubed but it suddenly stopped working. We switched to crushed and it functions normally but upon switching back to cube the light illuminates (indicating the selection has transfered) but the motor will not run to dispense cubes.


    Please advise. I'm unable to locate the lever mentioned in the previous fix? 
    Thanks in advance.

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.

Water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.


Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

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.

Ice dispenser is stuck in crush mode


Carriage that moves ice bucket rod up is frozen.It's right by the auger drive mote on the left- square hole. Remove bucket and try to free it with your finger. If no luck take hair dryer until you can move it up and down.

Icemaker won't dispense whole cubes, only chopped ice


Hello chitwnchk1
Welcome to Fixya,

You said,It chops ice when dispensing but won't just dispense whole cubes.
Any suggestions on how to fix it?

1. If the cubes dispense, but not whole cubes, there is not a enough water pressure.
2. r there is a restriction in the water line to the ice maker.
3. OR the fridge may not be level.
4. Is there a water filter and has it been Changed in the past 6 months?


Here are 4 reasons mentioned in the repair manual.

Shutoff arm in the off position

Ensure the shutoff arm is down and not in the raised position. If in the raised the position, the ice maker is in the off position and will not cycle.

Faulty Harvest Thermostat

There is a thermostat inside the ice maker that will close when the ice maker mold reaches the proper temperature. If the thermostat is not closing, the ice maker will not cycle.

Freezer To Warm
The ice maker will not cycle if the temperature in the freezer in not below 12 degrees. Ensure proper temperature in freezer.


No water getting to ice maker
The water inlet valve is the control device that allows water to enter the ice maker. It is energized during the last 5-8 seconds of the harvest cycle. During this 5 to 8 second period, there should be 110v across the two wires connected to the valve . If there is power supplied to the valve and the valve does not open to allow water to flow, the valve is defective.

However, if power is being supplied to the valve and water is flowing through it freely, it could be that you water supply line or inlet tube have frozen solid. These can be thawed with warm water or a hair dryer.

Let me know how it goes and what you found!
Thank You , Huuuum

Ice maker will only dispense crushed ice


You may have a broken solenoid inside the motor assembly.  The solenoid controls the arm for cubed or crushed ice.  The only way to tell is remove the ice dispenser motor assembly and look at the solenoid.  If the solenoid is broken, replace it and everything should be ok.

Ice maker for Model HSS25GFPJWW


Probably, but sometimes frost builds up in them and makes them unable to turn. They are gear reduction motors so you may not be able to turn it by hand, but if you take the ice container out, hold the door open, the door switch closed and press the ice dispenser and try to turn it whichever direction it's trying to go, you may be able to free it up. If that doesn't work you'll most likely need a new auger motor.
