It is run by an auger motor that is energized by the switch when you press the lever with a cup on the door. Open the door and find the auger drive.....it is usually behind the ice bin. try to turn it by hand. You should be able to turn it....if not it is either frozen or locked up. A lot of times I just take them out and run hot water over them till they defrost. Another thing you did not mention is if the cubed is works. If the cubed ice works but not the crushed then the problem is the selector solenoid. There is a solenoid that switches from crushed to cubed. Usually you can see it next to the auger drive. It should freely move up and down....if not, it is frozen and needs to be thawed. The last thing it could be....but rule this out if the cubed ice is working.....the switch that is energized by the lever on the door could be bad. The auger motor and the selector solenoid are located in a white box behind the ice bin. Pull out your ice bin and you will see a box with the drive sticking out and the selector solenoid to the left. try to move the selector up and down with your finger......if it wont move or if it moves itself back up then it is probably frozen. If you look towards the bottom of that white box you will see 2 screws on each side of it, remove those and the box will come out and you can defrost it. You will have to take the icemaker with it on most of them. Just remove the screws and lift it out. Hope this helps

Ice crusher quit won't crush ice


Your ice crusher might be broken. I would call your manufacturers hotline and tell them and if you still have a warranty on the fridge, they should come fix it right away.

I have a GE Profile refrigerator, Model PFSS6PKWBSS, with icemaker on door. Water is collecting under Deli-draw and leaking down freezer door onto floor. How do I fix leak?


Hi

Try and access the ice dispenser assembly and check from where the water is leaking. You would need to disassemble the ice dispenser and ice maker to check this. The ice dispenser is located in the upper portion of the freezer compartment. This assembly stores ice made by the icemaker and dispenses ice on demand from the door dispenser target switch.
1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray.
2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.
3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back.
4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover.
5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher.
6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher.
7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket.
8. Remove the ice crusher back cover.
9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger.
10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise.
11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly.

Icemaker--
The icemaker is located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment and supplies ice to the dispenser tub.
1. Disconnect the icemaker cable connector.
2. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker mounting screws and slide out the icemaker.
This refrigerator is equipped with an Electronic Icemaker.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a kenmore elite model number 795. my ice dispencer only gives crushed ice even though its set to cube


1st i would remove all ice out of bin, clean outBIN with warm water under sink. put ice back in do not throw away for testing purposes. if worked then a cube may have been caught in bucket chopper improperly . if didnt change anything could be a bad crusher solenoid. in home service could run you 90-145 dollars depending where you live. if you do it yourself crusher dispenser solenoid will run about 30-50 DOLLARS. hope this helps

Ice crusher don't work


Hi, It sounds like the selonoid that shifts the auger is not working. This part is located behind the panel that the bucket pushes against. The little wire arm on the bucket goes into this. Sometimes they just get froze up from the moister. If you remove the panel/section the selonoid is in, you can see if the part has went bad.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know If I can assist you further.

Ice crusher has stopped crushing


There is a little bar that is on the ice bucket. That bar has to go into the middle of the plastic square that is on the back wall of the freezer. Try Pulling out the ice bucket, get a hair dryer and run the hair dryer on the back wall of the freezer right above the hole where that little bar goes. After you run the hair dryer for about 10 minutes or so put your finger in the hole and pull down on the plastic square. Make sure when you put the ice bucket back in the freezer, the bar goes inside the square hole, not under it, not over it. In it. If that doesn't fix the problem you probably just need a new solenoid. Part number 5304404333

Let me know how you make out. Good Luck
