Question about Frigidaire PLHS269ZD Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

Ice dispenser only dispensed crushed ice, not cubes.

My Frigidaire Elements side by side will only dispense "crushed ice" even though the setting is on "cube". I have changed it back and forth with no effect and have cleared out ice the blade area will still no change. Thank you,

Ice maker crushes ice but wont dispense Crushed ice


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23H7CS, is crushing your ice, but will not dispense the crushed ice. It sounds like the dispenser is possibly jammed. Follow the following steps for a possible resolution:

    1)The ice has melted and frozen around the auger due to infrequent use, temperature fluctuations, and/or power outages. Remove the ice container, thaw, and empty the contents. Clean the container, wipe dry, and replace it in the proper position. When new ice is made, dispenser should operate.

    2)Ice cubes are jammed between the ice maker and the back of ice container. Remove the ice cubes that are jamming the dispenser.

    3)Ice cubes could be frozen together. Use the dispenser often so that cubes do not freeze together.

    4)The ice cubes are hollow or smaller than normal. The ice & water filter cartridge could be clogged. Replace the filter cartridge. Dispensing system operates best at 20 - 100 psi water pressure. Well water pressures should fall within this range.

    If the above does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and try dispensing crushed ice. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

I only get crushed ice even when the button is on


Pull the ice bin out and you'll see a rectangular hole with a plastic piece that has a rectangular hole in it. This piece will correspond to a steel rod that runs along the bottom of the ice bin. This steel rod actuates the crush/cube option in the dispenser. Sometimes icing can cause the plastic piece to get stuck. Try "jiggling" the plastic piece up and down until it frees and operates easily. Then replace your ice bin and try operating the controls on the dispenser again.

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

Can't make ice cubes only crushed ice


Hi: There is a flap right where the ice dispenses. When you remove the bin you will see it when inverted. This flap has to open for the ice to be cubed. You might rember a slap as it swung open when it worked. There is a bar that runs from the flap to the back of the dispenser. Work it manually to see if it's jammed or broken. If not look at the back of the freezer and remove the metal panel if neccessary, to find the jam or defective part. I hope this helps, Jeff

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice


Pull out your ice bin. In the back of the bin you will see a rod protruding from one side. That rod goes into an opening in the rear of the freezer. There is a solenoid behind that opening that raises and lowers the arm on the ice bin giving you crushed or cubed ice. Check to see if that solenoid is froze up or if your rod got stuck under it. If all check ok then replace that solenoid.
