    how do i replace solenoid for crush/cube?



  • mleff Sep 25, 2008

    I can't believe it, after a year of no cubed ice through the door it's working again!! And all I had to do was press down on the little bar in the open square behind the ice bucket!

    Saved me over $100 for a service call, and $40 - $50 if I had tried to replace the solenoid myself!

    Hooray for FixYa!!!! Thanks!!!!!!

    I had the same problem, my ice kept coming out crushed. I pulled down the white bar in the square hole and pushed the metal bar above it and now my ice comes out cubed. Thank you guys so much!!!!!!

My freezer did the same thing after we had removed the ice making unit to emoty the ice. In our situation, the bar had not been reinserted into the proper slot and therefore could not toggle between the two choices. Be sure the long metal piece is IN the little box on the back wall of the freezer and you will be enjoying your ice maker again, I hope!

The solenoid that controls the blades on the ice bucket is either froze up or defective. Remove the ice bucket and use a hair dryer on the back wall of the freezer where the bar on the ice bucket would go into the back wall. That plastic square in that hole should line up with the hole. Not be up inside the hole. Use the hair dryer on the back wall just above the hole with the plastic square inside it. The solenoid behind that wall is what controls the cubed and crushed ice. If that doesn't fix your problem replace the solenoid, Part Number 5304404333.

Let me Know how you Make out with your repair.

Thank you,
Bill

SOURCE: Ice cube button is lite but the only dipenses crushed ice

We have had this problem on occasion. The lever up in the ice dispencer gets jammed with frost and ice. If you remove the ice bucket/auger and let it thaw or just rinse it with water and dry it. Give it a try. -Matt

My Maytag Fridge Ice Dispenser stuck on crushed ice, so no whole cubes can dispense. What can I do?


If you look at the bottom out side area of the ice cube bucket/auger assembly, you will see a metal rod going front to back. That is the shift rod for cubes/crushed ice. Make sure it is free. Then look at the back of the refrigerator where the end of that rod goes into a square hole. There is a magnetic solenoid in that hole that shifts the rod for selection. The solenoid coil is either bad, unplugged, or for some reason stuck and not shifting that rod. That's where the problems is located.

Ice cube stuck on crush


remove the ice bin,there must be a chunk of ice blocking the cubed dispenser chute of the dispenser and channeling all ice thru the chopper chute,run hot water thru it to melt any chunks blocking the cube chute,then dry it and let it get cold before filling with new ice or you will have the same issue again

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 will only dispense crushed ice


You may have a broken solenoid inside the motor assembly.  The solenoid controls the arm for cubed or crushed ice.  The only way to tell is remove the ice dispenser motor assembly and look at the solenoid.  If the solenoid is broken, replace it and everything should be ok.
