Need to clean ice cube dispenser

My knucklehead boyfriend put two bottles of beer in the ice cube dispenser and forgot them. Thank goodness they didn't break, but they did leak inside the dispenser. I dispensing all the ice. Is there a safe way to take the part off to clean? If not, what should I use to clean while still attached? Warm soapy water? Help!

    please describe the part and type of fridge you have (side by side) i'm assuming. if that's the case you should be able to lift up slightly on the cube container and pull the whole dispenser tray out. nothing to disconnect .

Ice maker only produces crushed ice no cubes


Good Afternoon Gerald, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire refrigerator is only dispensing crushed ice not cubed ice. Your solenoid (which tells the dispenser crushed or cubed) might be frozen. You can defrost the solenoid by disabling power from it for at least one hour and then restoring power. If you continue to experience this issue you may need to have the solenoid replaced or the control panel and I would suggest having a professional technician out for proper repairs. Good luck with your refrigerator! -Matt

Ice maker crushes ice but wont dispense Crushed ice


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23H7CS, is crushing your ice, but will not dispense the crushed ice. It sounds like the dispenser is possibly jammed. Follow the following steps for a possible resolution:

    1)The ice has melted and frozen around the auger due to infrequent use, temperature fluctuations, and/or power outages. Remove the ice container, thaw, and empty the contents. Clean the container, wipe dry, and replace it in the proper position. When new ice is made, dispenser should operate.

    2)Ice cubes are jammed between the ice maker and the back of ice container. Remove the ice cubes that are jamming the dispenser.

    3)Ice cubes could be frozen together. Use the dispenser often so that cubes do not freeze together.

    4)The ice cubes are hollow or smaller than normal. The ice & water filter cartridge could be clogged. Replace the filter cartridge. Dispensing system operates best at 20 - 100 psi water pressure. Well water pressures should fall within this range.

    If the above does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and try dispensing crushed ice. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

Dispenses crushed ice only, not cubed


remove the dispenser bucket where the ice drops into inside the freezer and get a Tupper ware bowl,remove the bucket and dump this ice into the bowl,then rinse with the dispenser bucket with warm tap water to melt any ice on each end of this ice maker,then wipe dry and replace into freezer where you removed it to get cold again and leave empty till the next harvest of ice,this can be normal on some units after so many weeks,as it will not let the blades retract so as just to dispense only cubes,once bucket is cleaned of ice jams the solenoid and blades will again retract for cubes only

My samsung rfg297aa dispenses crushed ice whether its set on crushed or cubed. why will it no longer dispense cubes?


This answer probably comes too late for you (you posted the question 9 months ago), but I want to record it here for posterity, since I had the same problem, and searching on Google for it brought up your question.
Anyway, I managed to fix this very problem by removing an ice cube that was wedged in the ice dispensing mechanism. The way this unit works is that it pushes the ice cubes through the mechanism, which always rotates the "crushing blades". When you select "cubed" ice, a lever opens up the exit chute wider, which causes the blades to simply push out the ice cubes as they pass through. When you select "crushed" ice, the lever closes the "exit" for the ice cubes to be narrower, so that the ice cubes can't be pushed through by the blades, and instead get crushed by them. I had an ice cube wedged in there that had the same effect of closing the exit to be narrower. Removing it fixed the problem.
You might want to collect all the ice cubes that have accumulated in the ice bucket in a container, empty the ice bucket, clean out the mechanism from any obstructions, and then put the ice cubes back into the ice bucket.

Problems with ice maker


Bsbbj,
If the cubes are fusing together (such as when you overfill an ice tray), your solution could be as simple as adjusting the fill volume (there should be an adjustment under the front plastic cover, and the cover should just pop off and snap back on unless you see screws attaching it) and when your ice maker was replaced this probably wasn't calibrated correctly. Your mention of the side of the maker bulging also leads me to believe the water is overflowing and freezing within the dispenser (causing it to bulge and not dispense).
I hope this helps and Good luck.

BEER COOLER ICE PROBLEM


First, dont overstock your beer, good circulation is key. Make sure your condenser coils are clean. Find a happy setting with the help of a thermometer to cool between 35 - 42 degrees. To defrost I put big zipl-loc bags of ice on top of beer. Turn temperature all the way up (the compressor will cut off but the fan will keep running) for a few hours. When the ice is thick i put HOT water in a squirt bottle and spray sections in the ice. Play around with that and see if it works. Hopefully you don't have a bad condenser. Good luck!
