There is a little lever which freezes in the crush position. This is a literal "freeze up", as a block of ice forms in the little well under this switch and eventually freezes the switch in place.

SOURCE: my ice-maker keeps switching to crush on it's own.

There is a long rod on the right side of the ice dispensing bucket.

This rod goes through a hole in the back wall of the freezer where a solenoid should pull up on the rod allowing the ice cubes to dispense without being crushed.

If this solenoid goes bad or ice forms around the plunger, it cannot pull up on the rod.

Check out that solenoid and the rod assembly.

SOURCE: ice maker will only crush, won't let you get cubes

The dispenser door is staying open and allowing warm moist air back inside the freezer. This are is causing the frost to build up in your ice bucket.

You will need to put your finger up into the dispenser and push it shut. The other option is to get the dispenser solenoid replaced.

Good luck.

The ice maker drops the ice into the chute but when it should come out of the chute the flap keeps the ice backed up.


It's probably just frozen up with crushed ice. We use a lot of crushed ice and we clean ours out every night before bed time. That way we can start a whole new day of "Crushed Ice Pleasure" without the backing up. If this is not your case, your chute may need to be replaced. We have parts! Hope this helps you! Ella

Ice maker only operates on crushed ice mode




There should be a solenoid behind the ice bucket that moves an metal arm on the ice bucket to move the crush teeth away for cubes or keeps the crush teeth in place for crushed cubes. Bad solenoid, bad wire at the solenoid, broken solenoid/mechanism piece, bent arm, no power from dispenser to the solenoid are -some- possible trouble makers.

Also the solenoid that controls the crush/cube function is probably frozen. First, pull out your ice bucket. On the bottom of the bucket is a long metal rod the runs all the way to the back wall of the freezer. That rod runs into a little square hole in the back of the freezer. The hole is about 1 and half inches square. Just put your finger in there and see if the solenoid plunger moves up and down easily. If it doesn't move, then it is frozen. Just hit that area with a hair dryer and it will release. If it moves easily, then make sure that the the rod on the ice bucket is seated in there properly

No crushed ice


  • pull out the auger assembly (big plastic tray with a metal coil in it that holds the ice) and dump all the ice out.
  •  clean out the whole thing and let any ice residue melt, then try it. 
  • sometimes a small amount of ice will buildup around the ice crusher and keep it from engaging.

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice


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
