    Model number rs267lbbp has the same problem. Very annoying. Any suggestions?

    We have the same problem. Lowe's sent out 3 repair companies so far to fix. They replaced the ice tray assembely first. Did not fix. Then, they replaced the motor assembely. Still did not work. 3rd repair comapny comes out and says that it is messed up, but they do not know of a fix. Finally, Samsung says that it is normal operation. Working on an escalation now.

SOURCE: can't make ice cubes only crushed ice

Hi: There is a flap right where the ice dispenses. When you remove the bin you will see it when inverted. This flap has to open for the ice to be cubed. You might rember a slap as it swung open when it worked. There is a bar that runs from the flap to the back of the dispenser. Work it manually to see if it's jammed or broken. If not look at the back of the freezer and remove the metal panel if neccessary, to find the jam or defective part. I hope this helps, Jeff

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 dispenser gives crushed ice only

Your selector solenoid is bad. It is usually located behind the ice bin in a white box with the auger motor. Most of the time they are good still, but they get frozen. Try to defrost it.

Getting shaved ice instead of cubes

Several possibilities, but check first for cubes that are too small (means too little water is coming in during ice maker fill) and those cubes fracture into smaller bits when they are dispensed.

Another possibility is the cube/crushed plate inside the dispenser is stuck. This is a curved plastic piece that lies next to the crusher blades inside the dispenser head of the ice storage bin. For cubes this place must be retracted (swing away from) the crushed fingers to allow the cubes to pass without being broken up.

My samsung rfg297aa dispenses crushed ice whether its set on crushed or cubed. why will it no longer dispense cubes?

This answer probably comes too late for you (you posted the question 9 months ago), but I want to record it here for posterity, since I had the same problem, and searching on Google for it brought up your question.
Anyway, I managed to fix this very problem by removing an ice cube that was wedged in the ice dispensing mechanism. The way this unit works is that it pushes the ice cubes through the mechanism, which always rotates the "crushing blades". When you select "cubed" ice, a lever opens up the exit chute wider, which causes the blades to simply push out the ice cubes as they pass through. When you select "crushed" ice, the lever closes the "exit" for the ice cubes to be narrower, so that the ice cubes can't be pushed through by the blades, and instead get crushed by them. I had an ice cube wedged in there that had the same effect of closing the exit to be narrower. Removing it fixed the problem.
You might want to collect all the ice cubes that have accumulated in the ice bucket in a container, empty the ice bucket, clean out the mechanism from any obstructions, and then put the ice cubes back into the ice bucket.

LG fridge freezer GR-L207QVJA. The ice dispenser gives a choice of crushed ice or ice cubes, but has stopped dispensing ice cubes and gives crushed ice on both settings.
