I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23H7CS, is crushing your ice, but will not dispense the crushed ice. It sounds like the dispenser is possibly jammed. Follow the following steps for a possible resolution:
1)The ice has melted and frozen around the auger due to infrequent use, temperature fluctuations, and/or power outages. Remove the ice container, thaw, and empty the contents. Clean the container, wipe dry, and replace it in the proper position. When new ice is made, dispenser should operate.
2)Ice cubes are jammed between the ice maker and the back of ice container. Remove the ice cubes that are jamming the dispenser.
3)Ice cubes could be frozen together. Use the dispenser often so that cubes do not freeze together.
4)The ice cubes are hollow or smaller than normal. The ice & water filter cartridge could be clogged. Replace the filter cartridge. Dispensing system operates best at 20 - 100 psi water pressure. Well water pressures should fall within this range.
If the above does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and try dispensing crushed ice. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.
remove the dispenser bucket where the ice drops into inside the freezer and get a Tupper ware bowl,remove the bucket and dump this ice into the bowl,then rinse with the dispenser bucket with warm tap water to melt any ice on each end of this ice maker,then wipe dry and replace into freezer where you removed it to get cold again and leave empty till the next harvest of ice,this can be normal on some units after so many weeks,as it will not let the blades retract so as just to dispense only cubes,once bucket is cleaned of ice jams the solenoid and blades will again retract for cubes only
remove the ice bin,there must be a chunk of ice blocking the cubed dispenser chute of the dispenser and channeling all ice thru the chopper chute,run hot water thru it to melt any chunks blocking the cube chute,then dry it and let it get cold before filling with new ice or you will have the same issue again
There is likely a faulty solenoid which switches the ice dispenser between "crush" and "cube" mode.
The water pressure at the water dispenser is proportional to the supply line water pressure. Unless there is a restriction in the supply line or the dispenser line, the only way to increase the water flow is to increase the supply line water pressure -- not an easy proposition.
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.
You may not need to replace the solenoid. If you hear the hum, and not a loud click and don't see then rod move, it may be frozen with ice. Test it manually with your hand, it should be free to move up and down. If not, then it is frozen with ice. Remove the ice dispenser and let it thaw and dry out. You should then be able to move to rod and it will work fine, at least until it freezes again. Anyone know how to prevent it from freezing up? Its a continual problem for me
Pull out your ice bin. In the back of the bin you will see a rod protruding from one side. That rod goes into an opening in the rear of the freezer. There is a solenoid behind that opening that raises and lowers the arm on the ice bin giving you crushed or cubed ice. Check to see if that solenoid is froze up or if your rod got stuck under it. If all check ok then replace that solenoid.
