1st i would remove all ice out of bin, clean outBIN with warm water under sink. put ice back in do not throw away for testing purposes. if worked then a cube may have been caught in bucket chopper improperly . if didnt change anything could be a bad crusher solenoid. in home service could run you 90-145 dollars depending where you live. if you do it yourself crusher dispenser solenoid will run about 30-50 DOLLARS. hope this helps

Only crushed ice comes out of dispenser

your model # is incomplete but here it goes.

1.take your ice container out and run hot water thru it. you want to defrost all of the ice build up inside of it's housing.
2. make sure the long lever under the container moves up & down when you press on it.
3.w/the container removed, you will see a fork like object and next to it amn openning w/a small plastic square part inside. make sure that part moves freely up & down. that solenoid is what gives cubed ice.

let's start there first

Ice cube button is lite but the only dipenses crushed ice

We have had this problem on occasion. The lever up in the ice dispencer gets jammed with frost and ice. If you remove the ice bucket/auger and let it thaw or just rinse it with water and dry it. Give it a try. -Matt

Ice maker is crushing ice when cube ice button is on

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.

Kenmore side-by-side only dispensing crushed ice

Hi blkshop,
Most likely the problem you are having is with the crushed ice solonoid. It is located in the back of the freezer behing the icebucket. The little metal arm from the icebucket goes into a hole, the hole is part of the solonoid. To make sure the problem is with the solonoid, first take the icebucket out and look at the little metal arm on the bottom. When you lift it, it will open for crushed or cubed ice in the bucket dispencer hole. If it works properly then the solonoid is bad.
This repair is sometimes a really hard repair, because it is so hard to get all the stuff out of the way to replace the solonoid. You have to remove the icebucket holder and most likely the icemaker, and on some models you will have to remove the fan and several other pieces to get to it. If you feel like trying the repair let me know, I can ship you the part, I keep almost everyone of those on hand, all I would need is your model and address. My number is (865)945-3808. or my email is [email protected] . Thanks and I hope this will FixYa. Michael Anderson
