The auger switch in the door is bad or the auger motor is seized up/ stuck. The door switch is the problem the majority of the time. It's a simple repair. Just be careful with disassembling the plastic parts and use a flash light to find hidden screws in dark places.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice

You may not need to replace the solenoid.  If you hear the hum, and not a loud click and don't see then rod move, it may be frozen with ice.  Test it manually with your hand, it should be free  to move up and down.  If not, then it is frozen with ice.  Remove the ice dispenser and let it thaw and dry out.  You should then be able to move to rod and it will work fine, at least until it freezes again.  Anyone know how to prevent it from freezing up? Its a continual problem for me

SOURCE: Icemaker problem crushed only not cubes

Whenever the ice tray is removed, you need to reposition the cube/crush selector rod that is attached to the bottom of the ice tray. This rod swivels: down position for crushed, up position for cube. At the back of the freezer, there is an opening to which this rod inserts. It houses the solenoid for cube/crushed operation. For cube position, the horizontal plastic piece is slightly above the center of the opening. Slide out the tray until the rod is past the solenoid. Pry the solenoid down as far as it can go. It is spring loaded and will not break. (If it doesn't feel like it is spring loaded, stop here and call a repair tech.) Now swivel the rod on the tray up and slide back in making sure the end of the rod is ABOVE the solenoid. DONE!!! Now you have cube ice. Good Luck.

Hi i have a double door samsung fridge and when i place dispensable ice on cube i still get crushed ice in addition is there any way to increase the speed at which water comes out the dispenser


There is likely a faulty solenoid which switches the ice dispenser between "crush" and "cube" mode.

The water pressure at the water dispenser is proportional to the supply line water pressure. Unless there is a restriction in the supply line or the dispenser line, the only way to increase the water flow is to increase the supply line water pressure -- not an easy proposition.

More info, let me know.

Ge gss fridge,ice dispenser problem.


You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. The crush position is without the solenoid energized. 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


Your solenoid is part 45 and the linkage to the crusher is 46. The crusher is 41 on this diagram and parts list. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5150332&diagram_id=1239793#d1239793

Ice Maker Issues-only crushed ice works, cubed comes out crushed


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.

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.
