Question about Refrigerators
FRIGIDAIRE SIDE BY SIDE ... WON'T CRUSH ICE...
... makes ice and dispenses H20 just fine.
Found this solution elsewhere on line, just adjusting the white plastic "thingy" a la #2 mentioned below solved my problem, yippee!
"The most common reason for this problem is frost forming on the shaft of a solenoid that shifts the ice bucket discharge from cubed to crush.
1.Take the ice bucket out, and look at the back wall of the frig. You should see a small hole that lines up with a metal arm that was sticking out the back of the ice bucket. In the hole you can see the end of the mechanism that moves the ice bucket arm.
2. With your finger you should be able to move it up and down about half an inch or so. If you can't, you have found your problem. Sometimes you can just free them up by working it up and down a few times.
3. If that fails you will need to remove the whole panel to get access. Thaw it out, dry it out, then put a little lithium grease(very thin coating) on the shaft, and put it back together.
Sometimes the (solenoid)coil is bad, or the inside of the coil has distorted it's shape inside so the shaft won't move. Then you need a part.
good luck, let us know what you found
