Hi, my name is Chas, I am hoping that I will be able to help you with your problem today..
Can you hear the solenoid activate when you press on the dispenser lever?
Not the whle bin, just the circular crusher assembly that contains the flapper. Item 13 if you have a picture of the ice maker
Yes it does, when you move the lever down (counter clockwise) the lever moves up.
it is up
Yes, no resistance at all
With it in the down position, reinstall the bin and try the crushed ice, I think this will get you going...

Let me know if I am right or wrong????
Still just cubes. Does the lever go inside the plastic box on the solenoid accuator?
I don't know where that hole is. The solenoid plunger goes into a plastic slide that looks like is what the lever goes into
THis is the part that rod has to go into
yes that what I have it in
Just checked the solenoid doesnt move. I have an appointment I need to go to. How do I get back ahold of you?
Little more than two hours, but I'm back. I guess we've determined that the solenoid doesn't move. How do I check the power to the solenoid? I'm pretty sure that the leads to the solenoid are hooked up correctly, because of the shape of the spades.
ok, I unhooked the shelf and physically watched the solenoid engage when I called for ice. So maybe its something in the knife assembly I'm missing.
When the solenoid engages and lifts the lever, the flap moves away from the knives, when calling for cubes. The default position is the crush position with the flap up against the knives. I don't think the flap stays up against the knives when cubes come to the crusher, when wanting crushed ice. The solenoid doesn't hold the lever down.
Got any suggestions?
