There is a metal rod on the ice bucket that fits into a solenoid at the back.  Pull out the bucket and make sure the solenoid is pulled down.  Put the bucket back in and see if cubes work.  If not then replace the solenoid.  You can get it at http://www3.sears.com/.  Part # WR62X58 and cost is $29.27.  You should hear a loud click if the solenoid is working.  If your able to check to see if you have voltage to that solenoid when activating the ice dispenser.

I cannot believe this worked, the lever was in the correct position, I just checked it and put the bin back in place.  I have cubes!  I was sure this was a faulty control module (selector switch on front of Fridge).  Thanks

Ice maker crushes ice will not extrude cube cubes


Your ice bin is out of alignment. Pull the ice bin all the way out and re-insert it and make sure it locks in place. When you re-insert the bin,look underneath the bin. You will see a metal rod. It must go INSIDE the yoke at the rear of the freezer, NOT under the yoke and NOT over the yoke. In the yoke.
This is a common problem and will happen again. The ice bin has a way of dislodging itself. If the rod is not in the correct position you get crushed ice regardless of the setting.

Ice maker frozen on "crushed" ice mode


Check the bar below the icemaker bin. There is a gold color metal bar that goes from the front of the bin to the back and goes into a lever at the back of the freezer. If the bar gets on the wrong side of the lever it will be stuck in crushed mode.

Ice maker only makes crushed ice, no cubes I have the same problem... The same switch works fine for the crushed ice and water setting but will not dispense cubed ice. It only gives crushed.


hi.
I slid out the tray, found the lever in the back where the rod went in, pulled it down, reinserted the ice tray, and IT WORKED! At first I thought I broke the lever, because I had to hold it down with a knife while I was inserting the tray, but it just must have been stuck.
chek these sites
http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/refrigerator-freezer-repair/23620-ice-maker-only-makes-crushed-ice-no-cubes.html

There is an opening next to the auger that dispenses the ice. In there there is a lever that must move up and down. It actually seats the metal rod on the bottom of the ice maker and controls cube or crushed. Make sure the lever is down (cube position) when you return the basket to the freezer. I had to hold it down while I slid the rod into the opening. Cubes again. http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/showthread.php?t=783
if satisfied plz rate this answer
all the best

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 Issues-only crushed ice works, cubed comes out crushed


There is a solinoid in the freezer section by the motor that turns the ice auger. Test it by selecting cubes and with the ice bucket out, open the door, hold the door switch so the lights turn out and push the dispenser button. It should make a loud snap and travel upward. If not then I would say you have a bad solinoid. If it does, then I would look at the bucket. the metal rod that runs along the side of the bucket opens a flap in the bucket that is supposed to let the full cubes drop. look for anything that might cause it to be hanging up.

Ice Maker will not dispense ice cubes only crushed ice


sounds like the circuitry on your Cubed Ice button has malfunctioned. Contact the manfacuturer for a solution.
in the meantime, u can grab the Cubed ice manually.
hope this helps!

Crushed ice only


Behind the ice bucket is a metal housing that holds the auger motor and solenoid.  The solenoid is bad.  When you go for cubed ice that solenoid should pull up the metal rod on the ice bucket so full cubes will come out.  First check to make sure the metal rod on the ice bucket isn't somehow caught under the solenoid and not letting if move up and down.  You can take out the ice bucket and press for cubed ice.  You should hear a loud clunk noise.  If not then you know the solenoid is not working.

Only Crushed Ice


Solenoid behind the ice receiver gets iced up and prevents the baffle in the front of the receiver from changing between crushed and cube.

Remove the receiver and the receiver bracket (two screws on the bottom and lift up. Caution, the wiring must be unplugged!!!) Then thaw the solenoid and spray with teflon spray.

Re-assemble and try to switch between crush and cube.
