Check out the following :
1. Whenever the ice tray is removed, you need to reposition the cube/crush selector rod that is attached to the bottom of the ice tray. This rod swivels: down position for crushed, up position for cube. At the back of the freezer, there is an opening to which this rod inserts. It houses the solenoid for cube/crushed operation. For cube position, the horizontal plastic piece is slightly above the center of the opening. Slide out the tray until the rod is past the solenoid. Pry the solenoid down as far as it can go. It is spring loaded and will not break. (If it doesn't feel like it is spring loaded, stop here and call a repair tech.) Now swivel the rod on the tray up and slide back in making sure the end of the rod is ABOVE the solenoid. DONE!!! Now you have cube ice
2. The basket is not installed right. the rod that controls the flap is not positioned right inside the solenoid control arm.
3. look at the plastic piece the solenoid was moving . Push the plastic piece up (had to push pretty hard) and it will reset the solenoid to its' start/beginning position(-?) Plastic piece will come back to lower position - will be free to move up and down. The solenoid should be working now (hear the loud clicking and see it pulling the plastic piece up) to get cubed ice, instead of putting it thru the crusher

Ice maker will only make crushed ice and no cubes, what could be the problem


Open the freezer door.
Pull the ice bin forward about 3 inches.
Push the ice bin to the rear of the freezer until it seats and locks in place.
Then try to dispense cubes.
The ice bin can become dislodged from its locked position and the crushed ice solenoid activates automatically.

Ice Maker GSI-26 dispenses crushed ice and will not dispense cube


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

The ice maker on my Fridgidaire will only give crushed ice, even though we've never pushed that button. We only want cubes.


check to see if your ice solenoid on the rear of the ice maker bracket is seized up with ice. if so you can remove this and run warm water over to unseize solenoid. remove ice bucket and u should be able to see the solenoid close to rear wall. it is attached to the metal bracket that holds the ice bucket in place. usually two quarter in screws holds it in place

Ice Maker Issues-only crushed ice works, cubed comes out crushed


There is a solinoid in the freezer section by the motor that turns the ice auger. Test it by selecting cubes and with the ice bucket out, open the door, hold the door switch so the lights turn out and push the dispenser button. It should make a loud snap and travel upward. If not then I would say you have a bad solinoid. If it does, then I would look at the bucket. the metal rod that runs along the side of the bucket opens a flap in the bucket that is supposed to let the full cubes drop. look for anything that might cause it to be hanging up.

Ice maker only produces crushed ice even though is says cubes


check the arm on the bottom of the ice bin going back to the back wall of the freezer if it is in that little stirup then the solenoid could be bad or frozen. the solenoid lifts that arm which opens the flap on the front of the bin which lets the ice fall out without going through the crusher. clear as mud?

THE SOLENOID IN THE ON THE ICE MAKER MOTOR IS NOT WORKING IT HAS ICE BUILD UP ON IT OR IT HAS A SHORT IT PULLS THE PLUNGER THAT OPENS THE FLAP THAT LET ICE CUBES FALL OUT. REMOVE ICE MAKER AND THER ARE 2 5/16 SCREWS THAT HOLD PANEL IN THEN UN PLUG MOTOR AND USE HAIR DRYER & DEFROST MOTOR AND SOLENOID SHOULD WORK IF NOT MAY NEED TO REPLACE SOLENOID.
