Your refrig has a solenoid that opens and closes a flapper in the bucket to bypass the ice crushers look on the bottom of the ice container and there is a brass rod that is bent at the end. if yo will find where the end of that rod inserts into the dispenser motor inside the freezer there is a saddle that has most likely frozen in the up position. you can use a hair dryer to warm the area up and pull the saddle back to the down position. its kind of hard to tell you with out pics but hopefully you get an idea of wht i'm trying to describe..

The ice maker of our GE GSH25JSXSS is only producing crushed ice even when it's set to cubed. Is there a way to fix this issue?


Check that the shifter bar on the bottom of the ice bin is moving to shift from cubed ice to crushed. With the ice bin out you should see movement in the back wall of the freezer with the light switch button held in while changing the dispenser controls from cubed to crushed. GSH25JSXASS Parts

Dispenses crushed ice instead of cube ice


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

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 maker is crushing ice when cube ice button is on


We've had a similar problem, possibly the same, with our LG in-door ice maker. Whether cubed ice or crushed ice is selected, it crushes the ice.

We found that there is a little lever on the inside of the door, on the lower right behind the ice bin, which freezes in the down 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. Since the switch needs to go up to provide cubed,.. we only get crushed. On 3 separate occassions we've thawed and chipped out (carefully) this little ice dam and gotten cubed ice capability back for a few weeks. At which point it freezes again. I have no idea why water collects there in the first place.

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

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice


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.
