SOURCE: my lg ice maker is only dispensing

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
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.

Be sure that the fill tube is getting into the ice maker and that the ice maker is not blocked with ice.  If everything seems ok, you may have a leaking water valve which causes it to constantly drip water into the ice maker causing the block of ice.

SOURCE: LG ice maker only dispenses crushed ice not whole cubes

Very problematic issue with this model .Try unplugging and plugging the fridgerator which resets the board.The board is located on top under a removeable panel where the power cord enters....there is a reset/diagnostic button on the board itself.Contact LGUSA.com for any possible warranty and complain like crazy to avoid spending $300 on this board which can be purchased from andrewselectronics.com who is a factory authorized parts provider.Keeping that ice maker going will make you pull your hair out which is unfortuante for such a stylish and expensive fridge.good luck

SOURCE: Ice maker only produces 30 cubes per day (24 hrs) since new.

You probably need more water pressure going to the frig. check that first.!!

SOURCE: Ice maker crushes even when it is in the cube

If you pull out your ice bucket and look on the bottom you will see a long brass colored rod. Now, if you look inside your freezer section. you will see the slot the rod enters each and every time you insert your ice maker bucket. In the down position (normal) it produces crushed ice, When you switch the lever in the front for ice cubes, there is a plunger that lifts the rod and produces the combination that only allows ice cubes to come out. I would first check the plunger behind the panel and see if it is free.If it is not free it can cause the ice to be crushed...

My Crosley Conservator Ice maker will only produce crushed ice, HELP!


Ensure the Wire Signal Arm is not in UP position. • Ice maker should produce 2.5 to 3 pounds of ice in a 24 hour period. • Water supply is turned off. • Water pressure is too low. • The freezer is not cold enough.

Frigidaire model glrs267zcwi side by side. Crushed ice comes out when either the crushed or the cubed button is depressed. How to fix it please?


It sounds like the water line to the ice maker is partially obstructed (probably semi-frozen) and the unit is making smaller than normal ice cubes. This causes the ice ejector to "shatter" the smaller cubes, producing the appearance of crushed ice.

The easiest thing to try is make sure the water line connection inside the freeezer isn't frozen. A hair dryer can be used to thaw the inlet to the ice maker, but just be careful. Remove some of the product in the compartment so you have enough room to work.

Ice maker dispenses cruched ice in cube ice mode


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.
With your model number I can find a diagram which may help.

Ice maker frozen on "crushed" ice mode


Check the bar below the icemaker bin. There is a gold color metal bar that goes from the front of the bin to the back and goes into a lever at the back of the freezer. If the bar gets on the wrong side of the lever it will be stuck in crushed mode.

Ice maker is crushing ice when cube ice button is on


We've had a similar problem, possibly the same, with our LG in-door ice maker. Whether cubed ice or crushed ice is selected, it crushes the ice.

We found that there is a little lever on the inside of the door, on the lower right behind the ice bin, which freezes in the down position. This is a literal "freeze up", as a block of ice forms in the little well under this switch and eventually freezes the switch in place. Since the switch needs to go up to provide cubed,.. we only get crushed. On 3 separate occassions we've thawed and chipped out (carefully) this little ice dam and gotten cubed ice capability back for a few weeks. At which point it freezes again. I have no idea why water collects there in the first place.

Ice maker only operates on crushed ice mode




There should be a solenoid behind the ice bucket that moves an metal arm on the ice bucket to move the crush teeth away for cubes or keeps the crush teeth in place for crushed cubes. Bad solenoid, bad wire at the solenoid, broken solenoid/mechanism piece, bent arm, no power from dispenser to the solenoid are -some- possible trouble makers.

Also the solenoid that controls the crush/cube function is probably frozen. First, pull out your ice bucket. On the bottom of the bucket is a long metal rod the runs all the way to the back wall of the freezer. That rod runs into a little square hole in the back of the freezer. The hole is about 1 and half inches square. Just put your finger in there and see if the solenoid plunger moves up and down easily. If it doesn't move, then it is frozen. Just hit that area with a hair dryer and it will release. If it moves easily, then make sure that the the rod on the ice bucket is seated in there properly

My fridedaire side-by-side only gives crushed ice even when cube ice button is chosen


take the ice bucket out of the freezer
from the back of the ice bucket, there is a little metal bar that stickes out (back left bottom)
that little metal bar inserts into a hole with a spring loaded 'up/down' mechanism...this is stuck UP, and needs to be jiggled with your finger to spring down.
Once that mechanism inside the hole springs down, the ice maker will go back to producing whole ice cubes.
