Why are my ice cubes dispensing faster than my crushed ice. I changed the auger assembly and crush ice is still slow coming out of dispenser.


Hello Theresa;



My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.



I have gone on many a service call in regards to this issue. People like their crushed ice.



The auger was not the problem. It is the nature of the beast.



Regular ice cubes have more density (Heavy) and exit through the door dispenser with no problem.



With crushed ice, shaved chips they are lite. When you dispense crushed ice the ambient room temperature (warm air) creates condensate and bines the crushed ice together. Fragments of the crushed ice block the dispenser flapper from closing all the way. The flapper remains a little bit open and ices up.



The manufacturers recommend after you run crushed ice that you run cubes through your dispenser to clear the crushed ice fragments.



Well, that solution is from engineers sitting in a office.



The solution is, from a old experienced field technician is: Reach up and wipe the flapper with a dry cloth. Look up and make sure the flapper is completely closed.



If you need a tech call me at 414-306-1362. Glen Burnie, Maryland, USA

Why won't ice dispense from ice maker?


Pull out the ice storage bin from the refrigerator. Empty the bin if it is full. Add some ice into the bin. Reinstall bin into refrigerator. Make sure the refrigerator door(s) are closed. The ice will not dispense if the door(s) are open. Press the ice dispenser with a glass underneath it to start dispensing ice. Listen for a whirring sound. If there is a sound, then the auger that moves the ice cubes is working. Check the ice shoot in the door to see if it is blocked with ice. If you don't here any whirring sound the motor that runs the auger is probably bad. Then you will have to replace the whole ice maker assembly.

Mold/Bacteria formed between ice dispenser and dispenser lever Can dispenser be removed from lever for cleaning? If not, how to clean?


Use a bathroom mold and bacteria remover spray available from most supermarkets. Also spray down into the feeder on the inside of the door. Make sure you rinse the area thoroughly after use and run water through the water chiller dispenser and run some ice throughthe ice dispenser and throw these away. Then it should be safe to use.

Ice maker makes ice but can't dispense ice


Please try this. Remove your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly which is where the Auger (corkscrew) is located. You should be able to see the Auger Motor Drive Fork which is located permanently inside the freezer compartment... opposite the end of the Removable Ice Bucket Assembly that you just took out. Close the freezer door and attempt to dispense ice... if you can hear the Auger Motor running as you attempt to dispense ice... then the Auger Motor is OK. Dump out all the ice that is in your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly and wash it out in your kitchen sink with warm water. Reach into your freezer and put your hand on the Auger Motor Drive Fork ... you should be able to rotate it CW or CCW...it is a little hard to turn but it will turn. Position the Auger Motor Fork to a 12:00 and 6:00 o'clock position. Now take your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly and position its Receiver Auger Fork to a 9:00 and 3:00 o'clock ....Re install the Removable Ice Bucket Assembly into the Auger Drive Fork. Close the freezer door and again attempt operate the ice dispenser... you should hear the Auger Motor again run as you press the ice dispenser. Note....at this same time the Ice Chute Door in the Freezer Door should spring open so that ice can fall out. Of course you have no ice in the Auger at this time...but it all this works then future production of ice will fall out. Note...Usually the Auger Motor never fails. but the whole thing can get jammed with ice and not dispense. Also, the the solenoid that operates the Ice Chute Door fails quite frequently. Last but not least... if nothing is happening... it is a control board type problem. Hopes this helps! Handy Henry

Ice maker only dispenses crushed ice, won't dispense cubed ice anymore.


I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.

I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

LG LFX29560 Ice Dispenser


You may need a service call as the ice dispenser flap is operated by a solenoid which is controlled by a small pwb board which is located by the dispenser.
