Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
SOURCE: ice maker problem
Take the ice container out of the freezer, there is a metal rod that sticks out behind the ice container, You should be able to move this up and down to open a flap inside front of container to allow whole cubes to get through. In rear of freezer there is a hole that this rod sticks into. You will see a plastic square shaped actuator hanging down. It sould be completely down, and you should be able to move it up and down easily with your finger. If not then it is either frozen or it has failed. If it seems to be hanging about half way down, take a hair dryer and warm it enough that you can move it up and down. Once it is all the way down, reinstall ice container and try for cubed ice again.

your refrig has a solenoid that opens and closes a flapper in the bucket to bypass the ice crushers look on the bottom of the ice container and there is a brass rod that is bent at the end. if yo will find where the end of that rod inserts into the dispenser motor inside the freezer there is a saddle that has most likely frozen in the up position. you can use a hair dryer to warm the area up and pull the saddle back to the down position. its kind of hard to tell you with out pics but hopefully you get an idea of wht i'm trying to describe..

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.

We've had a similar problem, possibly the same, with our LG in-door ice maker. Whether cubed ice or crushed ice is selected, it crushes the ice.
We found that there is a little lever on the inside of the door, on the lower right behind the ice bin, which freezes in the down position. This is a literal "freeze up", as a block of ice forms in the little well under this switch and eventually freezes the switch in place. Since the switch needs to go up to provide cubed,.. we only get crushed. On 3 separate occassions we've thawed and chipped out (carefully) this little ice dam and gotten cubed ice capability back for a few weeks. At which point it freezes again. I have no idea why water collects there in the first place.
