yes, the bucket is full of ice and the crushed ice dispenses but not the cubes.

Try dumping out some ice. When my mom's gets totally full all it will do is crushed ice. I dump about have of it and it works right.

<<led lights, but nothing.   no noise or anything>>

How this system works is for crushed ice the auger turns clock wise for cubed it turns counter clock wise...

I would check for power to the motor if no power to the motor then it will need to be replaced pn#218886

if on power to the motor then it is the dispenser control
