Getting shaved ice instead of cubes


Several possibilities, but check first for cubes that are too small (means too little water is coming in during ice maker fill) and those cubes fracture into smaller bits when they are dispensed.

Another possibility is the cube/crushed plate inside the dispenser is stuck. This is a curved plastic piece that lies next to the crusher blades inside the dispenser head of the ice storage bin. For cubes this place must be retracted (swing away from) the crushed fingers to allow the cubes to pass without being broken up.

Manitowoc Ice machine only makes 2/3 bin of Ice and shuts off


The unit shuts off based on the magnetic reed switch in the plastic curtain on the front of the evaporator. If the ice is not falling as one single sheet with about 1/4"-3/8" of a bridge conecting all of the cubes then the ice is too thin. When the ice falls (in a single sheet of ice) if there is enough ice in the bin to hold that ice up and keep the curtain open the unit shuts down. A full bin may only be what appears to be 2/3 or 3/4 of a bin full because the ice sheet is propped up behind the curtain. If the ice sheet is too thin and does not fall as a single sheet more often than not a single cube or a piece of a cube can get caught between the curtain and the evaporator plate. This can shut the unit down for several hours until that piece melts and the curtain closes again.

Ice cube dispenser will only deliver crushed ice


Remove the ice bin, and in the back of the freezer you'll see a square opening with a white plastic piece inside. When you dispense cubed ice this piece lifts up, lifting the long metal rod that runs along the bottom of the ice bin. When that rod lifts it opens the ice flap at the front of bin, allowing cubes to be dispensed. If the flap is not open, the cubes will be ground against the cutters and you will get crushed ice.

Here's what you can do to make it so that you always get cubed ice. Take a wine cork and stand it on end. Using a good knife, I positioned the blade about 1/3 of the diameter from the edge and cut all the way through the length of the cork. Then remove the ice tray.

Now put your finger in the sqaure opening and lift up the white pastic piece. Slide the modified cork under the flap so that it is jammed into the raised position. (This is the position it should be in when you are asking for cubed ice.) Now slide the ice tray back in while using your left hand to push the plastic ice flap at the front of the tray to the left side (again, the position it should be in for delivering cubed ice). Peer under the tray while you're slowly sliding it back in so that you can see if the metal rod connected to that ice flap successfully slides into the square opening at the back. If it can't slide in above the cork-raised plastic piece, you may need to pull the cork back out and trim a little more off it.

This worked for me... I can't get crushed ice anymore, but I've only needed crushed ice once in the 16 months I've lived here so that's not an issue for me.

Slow ice cycle


Are you having any temperature related symptoms, i.e., soft ice cream that appears to have melted slightly and refrozen, soft breads in the freezer, warm or hot outer surfaces anywhere? If cooling is not a problem whatsoever, are any of your ice cubes smaller than normal, or do you have hollow ice cubes; you would be able to crush the cubes in your hand? If either of these pertains to you, you have not enough water coming to the ice maker, due to a faulty water valve not opening completely, or your water source pressure is low. disconnect your water line from the fridge, test pressure of the water line by placing end in a bucket, turning water on. It will be obvious how the pressure is. if pressure is good to really good, you have a bad water valve on the fridge. If pressure is so-so to bad, change source water valve.
If cubes are not small nor hollow, but rather normal full size cubes, just not enough, you probably have an intermittent problem with your icemaker, replace that.

I have model# FRS26R4AW5. The ice dispenser wil


I have a few ideas for things to try. On the bottom of the ice cube holder I believe there is a spring loaded metal rod that runs from the front of the freezer to a little indentation in the back of the freezer. Inside this indentation there is a small plastic piece that can move up and down to rotate the metal rod. Make sure this metal rod is free to rotate. Sometimes it gets stuck in one position. The position of the plastic piece inside the indent in the rear of the freezer is controlled by a solenoid which is controlled by the buttons on the front of the door for cube or crushed. Close all the doors and push the cube button. Open the freezer door and remove the entire ice cube tray. Reach to the back of the freezer and make sure the little plastic piece inside the indent will move up and down easily. You want it to be in its down position. Re-insert the ice cube tray. The metal rod should fit easily into the indent in the back of the fridge. Now close the door and see if you can get cubes. If this doesn't work I suspect the solenoid that moves the little plastic piece may need to be replaced. I hope this helps you out.

Ice maker crushes ice even in the cube mode


Remove the ice bin . Press the door switch in , and press the dispensor actuator pad . In the back , on the panel with the prongs , there is a square box cut-out , which houses a white square plastic piece . If this piece doesn't lift when set on cubes , then the solenoid is bad or a wire has come off of the solenoid . To access this solenoid , remove the 3 or 4 screws holding the panel on . Also try lifting this plastic piece with your finger , to see if it is frozen . Also a sign that the cube solenoid needs to be replaced .

Half moon cubes too large. Intermittent harvest.


Counter clockwise should decrease it. Just turn it 1/4 turn each time and check it after it makes another batch of ice. Then reread this post and do it again till it's the way you want it.

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.

Ice maker is making hollow ice cubes, some only half frozen


Most ice makers have an adjustment screw to control the cube size. Its usually hidden behind a plastic panel on the front of the ice maker. A quarter turn either way and some trial and error testing should get you pointed in the right direction to your ideal ice cube.
