Frigidaire FRS26BH6CB0 ice maker only crushes

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?

    we have the same problem. Our ice machine only crushes ice. With the light lit on cubed or crushed it still only crushes.

SOURCE: ice maker will only make crushed ice

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.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Ice maker only producing crushed ice, only I have

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 inlet valve.

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.

Frigidaire plhs267zab5 ice maker won't switch crush to cube


Pull out the whole ice machine part. At the back of the fridge you will see a small rectangle hole with a white plastic part inside the whole. Loosen the pastic part by applying a little pressure with your fingers it should move, it's probably just sticking.

unplug the fridge 2-3 minutes and see if it resets the computor to make the ice control work normally again. You can also open up and get the cubes out cheaper than having it repaired. Sorry about that!

Ice maker is crushing ice when cubed ice button is on


The problem is in the selector switch itself. If it is a touch pad, you will have to reset the control board by unplugging the until for 3 min. if its a physical switch, it may be faulty and will need to be replaced.

Good luck. please rate my answer as a fixya!
