SOURCE: Always dispenses CRUSHED ice
try removing the ice bucket, and on the back wall is a hole approx 1.5 inches square that the brass bar attached to the rear of ice container inserts into,(you may have to put hte container back in partilaly to look under and watch where it slides into) inside thatcut-out is a plunger that slides up and down activating the crushed/cubed option.you can sick you finger in the hole you should seee a plastic hoop that would catch the brasss bar.Try pushing and pulling hte hoop up and down if it does not move freely, youll need to replace the solenoid assy. if it does, then pull allthe way to the lowest positon and make sure when replacing the ice container that the bar falls with in the hoop itself

SOURCE: The Ice maker is stuck on crush
This is a simple thing. the solenoids get rusted and jam stuck in position. you can just clean the device but for all the trouble it should be replaced.

Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.
Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.
Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.

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

SOURCE: only puts out crushed ice
Pull out the ice bin and set aside. On the back wall of the freezer where the auger drive coupling is, to the right and down below the locator pin, is a square opening....make sure that the actuator is in the down position. if stuck in up position, it will always crush the ice. We have had the same problem with our frigidaire. The actuator is connected to the "crushed ice" solenoid.
