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.

Why am I getting crushed ice when I requested cubes


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that you are receiving crushed ice even when you request cubed ice. It could be an issue within your control panel or solenoid. Since it could be any one of these under lying issues I would recommend having a technician come out to properly diagnose your appliance. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire ice maker always crushes the ice


Solenoid that switches blades from crushed to cubes is most likely not working and should be replaced

Dispenses crushed ice instead of cube ice


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 only


Behind the ice bucket is a metal housing that holds the auger motor and solenoid.  The solenoid is bad.  When you go for cubed ice that solenoid should pull up the metal rod on the ice bucket so full cubes will come out.  First check to make sure the metal rod on the ice bucket isn't somehow caught under the solenoid and not letting if move up and down.  You can take out the ice bucket and press for cubed ice.  You should hear a loud clunk noise.  If not then you know the solenoid is not working.
