You shopuld be able to just replace the switch on the unit. gently pry the edges of the outer cover off and then you have full access to the inner workings and parts. good luck

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 cubes will not dispense, but crushed ice will. GE Profile TPX24PRYA


If the auger motor turns in either setting we know that the auger motor is OK, and if it does not turn in both crushed and cubes that leaves a problem with the WR55X129 time delay, which is the part that you switch to go from cubes to crushed to water.

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

Check and make sure your switch is okay. Some have a switch that controls whether you want crushed or cubes. If it is defective replace it.

Always crushes ice


This was easy to solve after reading some posts which mention "a plastic flap" which is opened or partially closed by the metal rod running under the ice cube tray.

There is indeed a flap which is inside the front of the removable ice holder/dispenser. The flap should be able to open fully so ice can fall out. In mine it could only move 1/2 inch because the flap was laying on the wrong side of a small peg which guides it.

I was unable to free the flap to open completely by pressing on it, so I had to unscrewed six screws to take off the front plastic facing and the on the front plastic housing. Pushing on the metal rod immediately put the flap back into it's correct position. I then replaced the plastic front.

I can now have either whole cubes or crushed. Boy was that easy to fix!

A repairman recommended replacing the electronics ! !

I assume this misalignment might be caused by too much pressure when the ice cubes freeze solid or something? If it happens again, I know it's easy to fix.
