Question about Frigidaire FRS26KF5C Side by Side Refrigerator
Recently our Fridigaire ice maker only crushes ice. The fridge is about 4 years old. I recently changed the filter out and it seems like the issue started about the same time or maybe a little before. Have you run into this one?
SOURCE: Water not flowing into ice maker
yes there is a problem with the water valve or the fill tube that puts water into the ice maker is frozen not letting water into the ice maker

There is a rod on the back of the ice cube bin. It goes below a plastic slide in the back of the fridge. If yoiu pull the bin out and it does not engage right, you will be 'stuck' on crush. Pull the bin part way out and see whether the rod is going below or above the horizonal rung in the rear. If it is above, rotate the metal control until it will slip under the rung.

SOURCE: ice maker only makes crushed ice
on the bottom of the bin there is a metal rod, this goes into the back wall where the solenoid is. find the square hole it goes into, pull down the white plastic piece with your index finger. you should here a clunk. now put the bin back and check to see if ok. if not you may need to replace the solenoid assy.

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.

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

When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it
produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too
small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water
First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.
