This is a simple thing. the solenoids get rusted and jam stuck in position. you can just clean the device but for all the trouble it should be replaced.

Mu Kenmore refrigerator's ice maker is dispensing crushed iced even in the cube mode


Take out the ice bucket and check the metal arm and make sure it moves freely. Ice may have gotten stuck.

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.

Ice maker dispenses cruched ice in cube ice mode


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.
With your model number I can find a diagram which may help.

Ice maker only makes crushed ice, no cubes I have the same problem... The same switch works fine for the crushed ice and water setting but will not dispense cubed ice. It only gives crushed.


hi.
I slid out the tray, found the lever in the back where the rod went in, pulled it down, reinserted the ice tray, and IT WORKED! At first I thought I broke the lever, because I had to hold it down with a knife while I was inserting the tray, but it just must have been stuck.
chek these sites
http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/refrigerator-freezer-repair/23620-ice-maker-only-makes-crushed-ice-no-cubes.html

There is an opening next to the auger that dispenses the ice. In there there is a lever that must move up and down. It actually seats the metal rod on the bottom of the ice maker and controls cube or crushed. Make sure the lever is down (cube position) when you return the basket to the freezer. I had to hold it down while I slid the rod into the opening. Cubes again. http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/showthread.php?t=783
if satisfied plz rate this answer
all the best

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 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.

Ice maker will only dispense crushed ice


You may have a broken solenoid inside the motor assembly.  The solenoid controls the arm for cubed or crushed ice.  The only way to tell is remove the ice dispenser motor assembly and look at the solenoid.  If the solenoid is broken, replace it and everything should be ok.
