Question:

The only thing the ice maker will do is give crushed ice. No cubes or water. What part or parts will fix the problem. The little selector tab is broken off but it has been foe several years.

Sue for model number TPH21PBSMBB
Answer:

Hi Sue, Thank you for the question. Dispensing cubes requires a lever behind the ice bucket to open a flap and allow whole cubes to come out. If an ice cube gets behind the ice bucket, this can prevent the lever from working. Remove the ice bucket and check for ice that may have fallen behind the bucket. If there is no ice make there blocking it you can look at the opening where the brass colored rod enters. There is a solenoid inside that should actuate to move the bucket arm in order to dispense cubes. Stick your finger in there and see if you can get it to drop down. The solenoid may be damaged, or just frozen in place. If it drops down reinstall the bucket and with the freezer door open, actuate the door switch with your finger, while pressing the ice dispenser. The solenoid will snap up then fall back down when you release the lever if it is working properly. If it doesn't, then you will need to remove the housing it is in and see if it has frost build up, if so set the bin out at room temperature to let any frost build up melt. The solenoid shaft must move freely in order to work properly. After checking and removing any frost reinstall the bucket again and with the freezer door open, actuate the door switch again with your finger, while pressing the ice dispenser. If it is still not working properly then the solenoid will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Question:

My fridge makes ice. It dispenses cubes but not crushed ice. I get cubes whichever button i press. No video i can find addresses this issue - help!!!!!

Rodney for model number GSS23WSTA SS
Answer:

Hi Rodney, Thank you for your question. Based on the information I have found, it sounds like this problem is caused because of a locked shifter. You will need to remove the ice bucket assembly from the refrigerator and empty the ice into a container and place it back in the freezer. Rinse the the bucket with warm water all around the dispensing end and allow the bucket to dry. After the bucket has dried place the ice back in it and install it back in the refrigerator. It should now work correctly for you. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Ice dispenser not working properly

The ice dispenser would not dispense cubes. It only dispensed crushed ice. Also the plastic auger was partially broken and it took forever for ice to be dispensed. The auger was easy to figure out that it was broken. The dispenser issue took some time. I removed the ice bin and removed the panel behind it. There was a solenoid that burnt and melted and this did not allow the dispenser door to be controlled. I ordered the parts on a Thursday and they arrived on a Friday. Pretty simple to fix once I knew what the problem was. I could have gotten the parts cheaper from Searsparts.com but their description of parts and their pictures did not match and I wanted to make sure I got the right parts the first time. To be on the safe side I ordered a couple of pins and used one of them. The pin was a little hard to remove from the existing assemble so I put it in a vice and used a small pick and hammered out the old pin.

Ice maker dispensed crushed ice but not cubes

Removed the ice bin and maker, then removed cover from the rear that covered the solenoid that controls the dispensing mechanism. Replace solenoid. The tricky part here is that there is a styrofoam cover around the solenoid pin that needs to be superglued into place and oriented properly during replacement. All electrical feeds snap out neatly and are easily replaced. Reassemble ice dispenser and bin, and viola, your back in business.
