maker that can make regular or crushed cubes that you access on the
refrig. door. my problem is that it only gives you crushed ice even
when the button is moved to the cubed ice setting. Any help would be

The icemaker only makes cubes.....the dispensor will dispense the
cubes or crush the cubes for the crushed ice.
There is an option to select cubed or crushed ice, the problem is,
only crushed ice is being dispensed, even when the cubed ice selection
is made. Everything else works just fine. This particular
refrigerator was about 2-3 years old.
There should be a solenoid behind the ice bucket ( see picture above )
that moves an metal arm on the ice bucket to move the crush teeth away
for cubes or keeps the crush teeth in place for crushed cubes. Bad
solenoid, bad wire at the solenoid, broken solenoid/mechanism piece,
bent arm, no power from dispenser to the solenoid are -some- possible
