Check to see if your ice solenoid on the rear of the ice maker bracket is seized up with ice. if so you can remove this and run warm water over to unseize solenoid. remove ice bucket and u should be able to see the solenoid close to rear wall. it is attached to the metal bracket that holds the ice bucket in place. usually two quarter in screws holds it in place

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.

The ice maker of our GE GSH25JSXSS is only producing crushed ice even when it's set to cubed. Is there a way to fix this issue?


Check that the shifter bar on the bottom of the ice bin is moving to shift from cubed ice to crushed. With the ice bin out you should see movement in the back wall of the freezer with the light switch button held in while changing the dispenser controls from cubed to crushed. GSH25JSXASS Parts

Even though the cube ice button is pushed, it gives me crushed ice instead..


You have a faulty solenoid problem. If you remove the ice maker bucket you should see a lever on the bottom of the bucket that engages the solenoid at the back of the freezer. You will have to remove the back cover to access this part. hope this helps

Ice maker frozen on "crushed" ice mode


Check the bar below the icemaker bin. There is a gold color metal bar that goes from the front of the bin to the back and goes into a lever at the back of the freezer. If the bar gets on the wrong side of the lever it will be stuck in crushed mode.

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 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 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.

My fridedaire side-by-side only gives crushed ice even when cube ice button is chosen


take the ice bucket out of the freezer
from the back of the ice bucket, there is a little metal bar that stickes out (back left bottom)
that little metal bar inserts into a hole with a spring loaded 'up/down' mechanism...this is stuck UP, and needs to be jiggled with your finger to spring down.
Once that mechanism inside the hole springs down, the ice maker will go back to producing whole ice cubes.
