usually there is a device in the ice bucket that activates or deactivates for cubed or crushed..that is controled by another (stirup) behind the bucket, that may be frozen up, thaw the whole refer...then see what happens. It might be in the switch...as well, if so call some one
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.
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.
the hex wrench your after is know as nut ddriver screw drivers / you can remove the auger assembly quite easily the activation switch is located in the door assemby. be carefull the auger is powerfull.
Dear Sir, I have purchased a whirlpool refrigerator on dt.05.11.2006 from M/S.Ganesh Enterprises, Angul bearing Invoice No. 335. last few days the main door of the refrigerator is not working properly. A part is broken from the door(clamp). Inspite of repeated contact and reminder the dealer have not taken any action till today and telling that the parts is not available. I am very much dissatisfied with the service of the dealer.Therefore I am request you Sir, kindly look into the matter and necessary action in this regard please be taken.
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
will it still dispense the whole cube?theres a brass rod under yourice bucket, remove bucket and check that rod, should be spring loaded and have a little bit of action(youll see it move a flap in front of bucket as its twisted, if so make sure the bucket is being reinstlled correctly, try the dispensor w/o the bucket installed at all, open the door trip the switch with one hand and depress the plunger for both crushed and cubed and check for the motor to turn
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.
