Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator
I would look at the selector switch as being faulty. If you get crushed ice this means both augers are working and the door switch is working, so I would think the selector switch n the control board may have pooped out on you, and I believe the only way to replace the switch is to do the whole board Good luck

SOURCE: ice maker only makes crushed ice
on the bottom of the bin there is a metal rod, this goes into the back wall where the solenoid is. find the square hole it goes into, pull down the white plastic piece with your index finger. you should here a clunk. now put the bin back and check to see if ok. if not you may need to replace the solenoid assy.

check the water line fron filter that continues on to water dispfrom icemaker, also a bad water disp solenoid or no pwr to water valve disp solenoid could be a problem,when you try to disp water can you hear a click from the solenoid operating to let water out?

We've had a similar problem, possibly the same, with our LG in-door ice maker. Whether cubed ice or crushed ice is selected, it crushes the ice.
We found that there is a little lever on the inside of the door, on the lower right behind the ice bin, which freezes in the down position. This is a literal "freeze up", as a block of ice forms in the little well under this switch and eventually freezes the switch in place. Since the switch needs to go up to provide cubed,.. we only get crushed. On 3 separate occassions we've thawed and chipped out (carefully) this little ice dam and gotten cubed ice capability back for a few weeks. At which point it freezes again. I have no idea why water collects there in the first place.

We had this problem and have visited several friends houses in our neighborhood who all have
appliances of approximately the same age, 6 to 7 years old and found this to be quite common.
The solution to this specific problem was rather simple, and has proven effective on several different brands, to the relief of many befuddled husbands and frustrated wives and now happier children.
Though the mechanism is in a slightly different location on some models.
I removed the ice hopper and looked in the back of the freezer and found the steel drive prongs that power the feed screw inside the ice hopper.
An inch down and a few inches to the right of it I found the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute for cubes or keep it closed for crushed ice. (on the Frigidaire Gallery Series)
I held the interior light switch closed and had someone push the ice lever on the outside and observed the drive prongs turn, but the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute did not move.
Stuck my finger in there and pushed it upwards manually and after a brief moment of resistance it moved freely.
Re-tested the operation of the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute, and it now opened when the ice lever was depressed and set to cube, and stayed closed when it was set to crush.
With the money we saved on the service call, I took the family out for chinese food.
