Ice maker won't crush ice
Ice maker was working fine on crushed, switched to cubed (worked fine) then back to crushed. Now, there is partially crushed ice and cubes.
Still works fine on cubes, I can hear the chute open when pressed.
On crushed, the blades still rotate but most of the cubes fall through whole.
Stumped on what to do or look for next.

For the crushed ice issue, pull your ice bucket out and check your ice bucket metal rod/bar, make sure it moves up and down freely, as well as in your freezer where that metal rod/bar rests, make sure that plunger where the rod/bar rests moves up and down freely.
Ice can jam in the dispenser bucket blades.
