Frigidaire ice maker On/Off switch doens't stay On

Frigidaire side-by-side Model FRS6B6EEB3, Ice Maker Model: GSI-26

Ice Maker On/Off switch behind the ice bucket won't stay in the On position. When pushed On, it pops back to the Off position

(rocker switch). The ice bucket is not hitting the button and the freezer is cold enough. Water comes out of the dispenser.
What could be causing the switch to not engage in the On position?
Thanks!

SOURCE: my ice maker stopped making ice

The simple and most expensive solution is to replace the ice maker assembly. They sell for between 50 bux on e-bay to 150 bucks at Sears. From what I have seen most ice makers fit the same category and they look like they are all designed and built by the same company!!

The main problem is the gear on the backside of the unit snaps off for various reasons like ice cubes getting stuck and causing the ejector rake to jam, thus overloading the flimsy gear and snapping it off. You can not purchase the gear however you can choose to buy a gear-head assembly for 80 or so bux.

shows a typical repair kit. Just enter your model number on their website to find the exact match for your ice maker.

I repaired the broken gear on mine using some structural epoxy. Here is a pic of the repair in progress, The green stuff in the center of the gear is the epoxy I used. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Ice Maker GSI-26 dispenses crushed ice and will not dispense cube

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

Check the trap door where the ice drops through, it might be stuck in the open position, solenoid that operates the door may be bad.
