Ice maker is crushing ice when cubed ice button is on

I have a side-by-side frigidaire fridge (not sure on model number - brand new in 2005) and the ice depenser is crushing the ice even though the cubed ice button is on. It is happened before and magically corrected itself. I have looked in the booklet that came with the fridge but cant find anything. Any suggestions?

The problem is in the selector switch itself. If it is a touch pad, you will have to reset the control board by unplugging the until for 3 min. if its a physical switch, it may be faulty and will need to be replaced.

Good luck. please rate my answer as a fixya!

Frigidaire model glrs267zcwi side by side. Crushed ice comes out when either the crushed or the cubed button is depressed. How to fix it please?


It sounds like the water line to the ice maker is partially obstructed (probably semi-frozen) and the unit is making smaller than normal ice cubes. This causes the ice ejector to "shatter" the smaller cubes, producing the appearance of crushed ice.

The easiest thing to try is make sure the water line connection inside the freeezer isn't frozen. A hair dryer can be used to thaw the inlet to the ice maker, but just be careful. Remove some of the product in the compartment so you have enough room to work.

Frigidaire plhs267zab5 ice maker won't switch crush to cube


Pull out the whole ice machine part. At the back of the fridge you will see a small rectangle hole with a white plastic part inside the whole. Loosen the pastic part by applying a little pressure with your fingers it should move, it's probably just sticking.

unplug the fridge 2-3 minutes and see if it resets the computor to make the ice control work normally again. You can also open up and get the cubes out cheaper than having it repaired. Sorry about that!

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 Maker stuck in dispensing crushed Ice


That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

Ice maker stuck on ''crushed'' ice


i think it's simpler than that. there's a plastic gate that snaps UP for cubed and DOWN for crushed.
When you remove the tray, set it to CRUSHED, BEFORE putting the tray back in place.
