Answering this question is like answering "how long is a piece of rope." There is more than one answer. Most machines have a removable ice storage tray, If your machine has a knob on the front of this tray which allows you to select fine crushed or course crushed ice depending on how far you turn the knob the finally cubed ice. Many time the knob is broken and no longer actually turns anything. It may be as simple as removing the know and replacing with a new knob. If the knob will turn more than 360% it is almost
certainly broken. Set ups like this usually runs the ice through a crusher. By moving the two parts of the crusher to maximum clearance, you get cubes. The closer the two parts run together the finer the crushed ice. The knob is connected to a rack that moves one half nearer or away from a stationary half. I hope my explanation was clearly written and hope it is of some help

Crushed ice makers have a tendency to freeze up the mechanism. So you might want to deinstall your ice maker and let it defrost for a day or two.

That would be where I started, but if that didn't fix the problem I would move on to the electronics/

Ice maker problems


Not sure which refrigerator you have but on mine when you select cubes there is a baffle that is pulled out of the way making the opening large enough to allow full sized cubes to pass. When you select crushed the baffel is left in place forcing the ice to pass through the crushing section. My guess is they are all probably about the same. So either the baffel peice on yours is missing, electrically stuck. Hard to say for certain with out seeing it.

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.
