    i was having the same problem. after following the instructions provided the unit still was nonfunctional. the default position for the solenoid seems to be down (crushed). seems like i either have a broken connection or bad solenoid. so i placed a wedge to hold the white plastic loop in the up position. now it dispenses cubes. good enough, i can always remover the wedge should i need crushed.

Yes and no ...... there is no real adjustment for it but you may have a sticking solenoid .....OK in the back of the unit remove the hopper and you will see the solenoid loop (white Plastic) in the back wall this need to pull up in order for the unit to dispense cubes. it maybe sticking ....now by moving it up and down a few times with your hand to make sure it is free....next dump all the ice out of the hopper and check the arm thathat sticks out the back of the hopper make sure it is not frozen after that reassby and place a few cubes back in the hopper to see if it is working..Let me know

Getting shaved ice instead of cubes


Several possibilities, but check first for cubes that are too small (means too little water is coming in during ice maker fill) and those cubes fracture into smaller bits when they are dispensed.

Another possibility is the cube/crushed plate inside the dispenser is stuck. This is a curved plastic piece that lies next to the crusher blades inside the dispenser head of the ice storage bin. For cubes this place must be retracted (swing away from) the crushed fingers to allow the cubes to pass without being broken up.

Water and ice cube dispenser working fine, crushed ice not crushing. 26 cuft side by side model MZD266SHES


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. Crushed ice is the default position and the solenoid is energized to cube ice.
Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

Ice dispenser gives crushed ice only


Your selector solenoid is bad. It is usually located behind the ice bin in a white box with the auger motor. Most of the time they are good still, but they get frozen. Try to defrost it.

Ice dispenser will only give crushed ice; will not dispense cube ice ;I have looked at the auger and chute and nothing wrong there; when I chose cube, it dispenses crushed in both the crushed and cube...


Your selector solenoid is not working. Next to the auger motor there is a selector. You will see a plastic peice in a hole to the left of the auger.....Try to move it up and down. If it won't move it is more than likely frozen in one spot. Try to defrost it. If that does not work then replace the solenoid.
