The bucket is probably frozen in it mount. Turn off refrigerator until it defrost enough to release it

SOURCE: ice despenser

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..

SOURCE: ice maker sensor arm

the arm is hung up on a srcrew that is on the divider wall to the right of the icemaker pull the arm off the screw. The icemaker is a mechanical one so the arm will not just drop down so put the ice bucket back in and turn the icemaker back in the control panel further problem call customer service for assistance for over the phone help 1 800 222 7820 they will be glad to assist their customers unlike other manufactures.

SOURCE: pressure washer stalls out when wand nozzle is released

common for not starting unless trigger engaged as you are turning the pump as well as engine creating pressure,as for stalling pump has unloader valve which is probably in need of grease(use good silicone grease)this allows water to ciculate when trigger released.

SOURCE: won't make ice

Have you changed your water filter lately. On many side by sides there are built in water filters that will slowly stop making ice and giving water because the filter is in need of changing...if this is not the problem write back and I will walk you through the other possibilities...

Sometimes the ice melts then refreezes. Make sure the button is depressed. Or open the door, tape newspaper across the freezer section to keep the cold air in, leaving the door exposed to room temperature will allow it to thaw. Or speed it up by using a blow dryer to thaw it.

Cant remove ice bin kitchenaid

This is an ice freeze up in the mechanical release mechanism. Leave the door open for a few minutes. But if you are impatient like me, warm the area with a hair drier for about 20 - 30 seconds, and you should be good-to-go.

When i depress the paqddle to dispense ice the auger does not engage and no ice will come out

Make sure the ice bucket is fully seated into the space below the ice maker where it rests, if not in all the way, the auger cannot engage and or the switch that tells the auger motor that the bucket is in place will not be triggered.
Good Luck !

Frigidaire Model GLHS68EGSB2, ice maker will only dispense crush ice even if you press the ice cube dispenser

You need to take out the ice bucket, empty it, let the bucket sit in the sink for a few hours. Ice builds up in the crushing blades and jams them, let all the ice melt out of it and it will be fine

Even though the cube ice button is pushed, it gives me crushed ice instead..

You have a faulty solenoid problem. If you remove the ice maker bucket you should see a lever on the bottom of the bucket that engages the solenoid at the back of the freezer. You will have to remove the back cover to access this part. hope this helps

The ice maker on my Fridgidaire will only give crushed ice, even though we've never pushed that button. We only want cubes.

check to see if your ice solenoid on the rear of the ice maker bracket is seized up with ice. if so you can remove this and run warm water over to unseize solenoid. remove ice bucket and u should be able to see the solenoid close to rear wall. it is attached to the metal bracket that holds the ice bucket in place. usually two quarter in screws holds it in place

When dispensing ice we only get crushed ice even though the button is on ice cubes.

your actuator is probably bad its a little solenoid that the ice bucket rod sticks in to at the back remove the ice bucket find the square that the actuator rod sticks into look in it if you see a bar about halfway down in the square see if you can take your finger and pull it down then hold in the door switch on the cabinet not the one that runs the freezer light and have some on actuate the ice disp to see if the bar goes up and down if not you will need to replace the solenoid also clean the bucket and check that the rod is moving the door in the bucket
