Question about KitchenAid (KSRD22FKST) Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Ice maker not filling up. Water comes out front.

I think I need to go through the troubleshooting procedure. The black inlet line is not frozen. The red light blinks. The ice maker switch is turned on. I just injected some hot water into the ice tray to try to melt anything that may be frozen. I'm not too hopeful. Any assistance on troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Ok. I just went ahead and ordered the whole icemaker unit from www.apwagner.com, replaced it and it works now. Total cost, including tax and shipping was $155.99.

The key here is that the ejector blades were facing towards the bottom of the tray at the 7:00 position with the angle towards the front bottom of the tray (toward the outside of the fridge). They should be in the 2:00 position.

I probably could have gotten by with a smaller part, "module assembly", which goes for around $75, but live and learn. I'll probably go that route next time.

Hi there,

check the water and ice actuators or paddles for any breakage.

you may have warm air entering the icemaker iself.

My whirlpool ed20db ice maker isn't making ice. Inlet tube is frozen solid


Thanks for the model number. The water control valve=> W10245167 Water Inlet Valve will need replaced when this happens. Problem allows water to leak slowly into the ice maker and fill tube can become solid very quickly, or very messy ice formations coming down from ice maker, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

The water line that connects to the back top of the fridge busted loose. It looks like there is an adhesive pad that keeps it in place. How do I fix it? Scott


Hi Scott and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The plastic line that connects to the ice maker rubber FILL tube is what came off. Check inside the freezer and squeeze the end of the rubber tube at the back of the ice maker. I would bet it is frozen with ice. (Hand held hiar dryer for quite a while to defrost the tube FYI and do NOT melt the plactic of the ice maker water funnel.) What causes the tube to freeze is the inlet water valve starts bypassing water when it is supposed to shut off. The result of this bypassed water is a frozen rubber tube and the plactic tube on the back of the refirgerator blows off or leaks. This inlet water valve is NOT repairable.

The Fix... Replace the inlet water valve and make sure the rubber ice maker fill tube is defrosted BEFORE re-inserting the plastic tube back into the rubber fill tube. It just pushes in and the adhesive pads for holding the plastic line in place are not critical even if they are lost. The rubber fill tube fitting will retain the plastic hose just fine as long as the ice maker end of the tube is not frozen from a leaking inlet water valve.

Water doesn't fill in ice tray seems that the line is frozen


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. If the fill tube at the top rear of the unit is full of ice this is usually caused by the inlet water valve pssing water when it is supposed to be shut off. Here is what you can do to check and see if the inlet water vale is bypassing water when it should be closed.
1. On the back of the unit where the small plastic line connects to the fill tube that gouse from the rear of the cabinet to the ice maker remove the small plastic line. Plate the end of the line in a bucket or large pan for 8 to 10 hours with the ice maker OFF.
2. At the end of the period where you have the removed line in the catch basin / pan or bucket, check for water. If there is water in the catch basin the inlet water valve has failed internally either from age or debris on the diaphram seat.

Since you did not provide a model number, I can not pass you a source for replacement parts or EXACT troubleshooting procedures. However here is a manual that will assist you in trouble shooting:

If your ice maker does not have the optical sensors use this link for ice maker troubleshooting:

Ice maker stopped working


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Replace the water inlet valve after making sure the tube which fills the icemaker is not frozen . If it is , replace the valve anyway . The valve is the piece which connects to the line to the wall on fridge .

Water lines i think are ok but cant get water or make ice


Check the following:

See if the fridge has a water filter...it could be plugged and need replacement...check your manual for the location and replacement procedures

Check the inlet water line to the ice maker...it could be frozen...a hair dryer can be used to thaw it out and get the ice make to work again...be careful and don't overheat the ice maker inlet water line.

Make sure the water line is ok and not obstructed or kinked

Check the ice maker water valve to be sure it opens and isn't clogged

Cycle the arm on the ice maker and wait to see if it will make ice again
