Not saying it isnt but more often the solenoid that changes from crushed to cubed in the back wall of the freezer is the problem. Pull out the ice bin and examine the bottom of the bin itself. You will see a metal bar that sits underneath the bin to one side of it. This bar is moved to pull the ice away from the crusher blades or left down to be crushed in them. Follow the bar to the back wall where it goes into a square hole in the wall. This is the solenoid that pulls the bar up for cubed and crushed ice. There is a plactic hook in that square cutout that that bar is supposed to sit in. You may have pulled out the ice bin and when pushing it back in the bar managed to get under the hook. The hook is part #45C in this diagram http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fR0302033-00008.png If you cant even see the plastic hook, stick your finger in the square hole and feel upwards towards the ceiling. You should be able to feel the hook and pull it down back into place. If it wont budge then the solenoid itself will have to be replaced. Hope this helps.

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.

Dispenses crushed ice and will not dispense ice cubes


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

Icemaker only dispenses crushed ice, not cubes


There is an opening next to the auger that dispenses the ice.  In there there is a lever that must move up and down. It actually seats the metal rod on the bottom of the ice maker and controls cube or crushed.  Make sure the lever is down (cube position) when you return the basket to the freezer. I had to hold it down while I slid the rod into the opening. Viola! Cubes again. http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/showthread.php?t=783
