Ice bin will only dispense cube ice and jams on crushed ice. Pushes the ice bin forward, almost opens the freezer door. Replaced solnoid didnt help.

Ok, you see that metal rod bar that sticks out the back of your ice bucket?

You need to move that rod up and down, probably some ice jammed in the bucket blades. Make sure it moves freely up and down.

Ok, well, you'll likely need to take the ice bin apart to check the impeller to see if its broke, taking these apart are a complete nightmare, as you have to remember where every part goes back into place, blades and all have to be lined back up perfectly.

I was looking for an ice bin complete assembly but couldn't find one for your model.

There isn't a step by step guide to do this, so you will just have to write down where every part goes in the order you remove them.
