Getting shaved ice instead of cubes


Several possibilities, but check first for cubes that are too small (means too little water is coming in during ice maker fill) and those cubes fracture into smaller bits when they are dispensed.

Another possibility is the cube/crushed plate inside the dispenser is stuck. This is a curved plastic piece that lies next to the crusher blades inside the dispenser head of the ice storage bin. For cubes this place must be retracted (swing away from) the crushed fingers to allow the cubes to pass without being broken up.

My shaved ice won't work on my Kenmore Elite but all other options do


Be sure the metal bar under the ice bucket is fed into the 'stirrup' at the back of the freezer, if it is in place, hold the freezer light switch down while the door is open, and press the ice dispense paddle to observe auger operation and see if the 'stirrup' is pulled upward by the solenoid that operates it...

Why are my ice cubes dispensing faster than my crushed ice. I changed the auger assembly and crush ice is still slow coming out of dispenser.


Hello Theresa;



My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.



I have gone on many a service call in regards to this issue. People like their crushed ice.



The auger was not the problem. It is the nature of the beast.



Regular ice cubes have more density (Heavy) and exit through the door dispenser with no problem.



With crushed ice, shaved chips they are lite. When you dispense crushed ice the ambient room temperature (warm air) creates condensate and bines the crushed ice together. Fragments of the crushed ice block the dispenser flapper from closing all the way. The flapper remains a little bit open and ices up.



The manufacturers recommend after you run crushed ice that you run cubes through your dispenser to clear the crushed ice fragments.



Well, that solution is from engineers sitting in a office.



The solution is, from a old experienced field technician is: Reach up and wipe the flapper with a dry cloth. Look up and make sure the flapper is completely closed.

Sub zero 650 slow ice maker


Hi Maureen,

Your sub-zero 650 should produce about 8 cubes every 2 hours. It sounds like the heater beneath the ice maker may be wearing out. Ice makers use a heating mechanism to warm the cubes in the mold and force them to easily eject. If the heater is failing in the back slot, it could cause the ice cube to get stuck. If this is the case, you usually need to replace the part or the entire ice maker.

It is also possible the mechanism isn't properly aligned. You could try adjusting it.

You can find two manual on FixYa here: http://www.fixya.com/support/p24667-sub_zero_650_o_bottom_freezer

Otherwise, I suggest contacting their customer service or a technician: http://www.subzero-wolf.com/contact-and-support/index.aspx

Best of Luck!

I have a Kenmore Elite side-by-sr ide refrigerator Model 106. The ice making system is putting too much water in the ice tray, making the cubes too big. These large cubes are clogging up the dispenser. ...


With out the full model number it is hard to say. Most 106 model referigators have a modular ice maker. If you take the cover off of the front of the ice maker and look on the right hand side of the motor module you will notice a small plastic adjustment screw. If you turn this screw you can adjust your water fill time to the ice maker.

Problems with ice maker


Bsbbj,
If the cubes are fusing together (such as when you overfill an ice tray), your solution could be as simple as adjusting the fill volume (there should be an adjustment under the front plastic cover, and the cover should just pop off and snap back on unless you see screws attaching it) and when your ice maker was replaced this probably wasn't calibrated correctly. Your mention of the side of the maker bulging also leads me to believe the water is overflowing and freezing within the dispenser (causing it to bulge and not dispense).
I hope this helps and Good luck.

Ice Maker -cube selection


Banjo, pull the ice bin out. You will see a rod on the back of it. See if it flips up and down by hand. This rod does the switching from crushed to cube in the bin. In back of the freezer where the rod inserts there will be a cradle that pulls up by a solenoid. With the bin out and the door switch held shut have someone press the ice lever and see if the soleniod is pulling the cradle up. If not the next logical move would be to see if the solenoid is getting 120V when the lever is depressed. If it is and is not moving, there's your problem. Check the bin first and see if it is not all clumped up with ice. Catriver...post back
