Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

can you get us the full model number ?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The model number is XXXXX

Okay perfect, on the left side of the ice auger assembly(the part you to go to clean) there is a broad that runs down the side along the bottom. It's number 46 on this diagram. This rod has to slide into the auger solenoid assembly in the back of the freezer. # XXXXX on the diagram. this pulls the rod down to go from cubed to crushed ice, check and make sure its in the plastic part of the has to be in the hole (the white part) make sure the solenoid isn't stuck down and the rod is out of the hole (square hole)

Bryan. I will try that when I get home I am at work right now if it works great if not I will contact you again. Thanks for now.Gordon.

Okay Gordon, I'm fairly certain you will never find the rod is not in the right position through the hole I have seen this 1000 times, sometimes when you put it back in it doesn't go through the square plastic part that's connected to the solenoid and therefore when you press for say cubed or crushed ice the solenoid isn't able to change the position of that arm which is what makes ago from crushed to cubed. Just reply back to me if you need me and I will receive an e-mail telling me you need to speak to me again. Thanks and best wishes, Bryan
