RS50N3513SA - Keeps dispensing crushed ice

First Poster

Bit of an unusual problem. For some reason, the ice maker will only dispense crushed ice regardless of whether "cubed" is selected or not. I've emptied the ice out and ensured that all the ice is cubed but each time I dispense ice I can hear the blades chopping it up and crushing the ice. I think the selector maybe the thin metal bar that runs the length of the ice tray and sticks into a square hole at the back where there is an inch square shaped fitting. This flicks forward a curved plastic piece that lifts the ice up so the blades can chop it up. I suspect that the selector is stuck. I've checked for ice etc and there's nothing mechanical at the front of the dray, so it must be the square selector thingy at the back of the fridge?


This problem only started a couple of weeks ago. It’s always been set to cubed with the occasional bit of crushed ice.


Anyone have any ideas?

Hi @Dafydd123 


Are you still having this same issue or did you manage to get it resolved?

Still not fixed. Has to do with the selector bar I think but I don't know how it fits into the mechanism at the back of the fridge. I may have to give Samsung Support a ring. The fridge freezer is less than a year old so under warranty.
