If you select cube and hold open the door and push in on the light switch and have someone push the lever for ice you should hear a loud click this is from the selector switch in the back that engages a long brass colored rod under the ice maker if you hear this loud click you probably have some crushed ice in the crusher keeping it from switching back open the door and push in on the light switch and have someone push for cube ice it will kick ice out the bottom so dont be alarmed. (sometimes you have to do this a couple times) good luck
Problems not related. The first is most likely the fan, or possibly water dripping on to the fan and freezing, but usually the noise comes from the fan struggling to run. The cube problem could be as simple as the ice dispenser being put back in wrong. There is a metal lever under the ice tray that switches between crushed and cubed. Make sure it is seated properly.
empty out all of your ice
than wait for it to fill up a new tray and than it should be cubed if it doesnt change you might end up sticking with it because you will need to change the control panel behind the buttons your pressing
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!
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.
Check the plug to the door first. Then turn the ice machine head off unplug the refrigerator for a few minutes. Plug it in and turn on icemaker. this part problably just lead back to squre one. have someone push the button for water while you are listening at back bottom for humming sound,if you dont hear it its probably a bad water valve.
There is a solinoid in the freezer section by the motor that turns the ice auger. Test it by selecting cubes and with the ice bucket out, open the door, hold the door switch so the lights turn out and push the dispenser button. It should make a loud snap and travel upward. If not then I would say you have a bad solinoid. If it does, then I would look at the bucket. the metal rod that runs along the side of the bucket opens a flap in the bucket that is supposed to let the full cubes drop. look for anything that might cause it to be hanging up.
THE SOLENOID IN THE ON THE ICE MAKER MOTOR IS NOT WORKING IT HAS ICE BUILD UP ON IT OR IT HAS A SHORT IT PULLS THE PLUNGER THAT OPENS THE FLAP THAT LET ICE CUBES FALL OUT. REMOVE ICE MAKER AND THER ARE 2 5/16 SCREWS THAT HOLD PANEL IN THEN UN PLUG MOTOR AND USE HAIR DRYER & DEFROST MOTOR AND SOLENOID SHOULD WORK IF NOT MAY NEED TO REPLACE SOLENOID.
