Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
1. If your icemaker stops making ice, the first thing to check is the
freezer temperature because it could be an early warning that there’s
something wrong with your fridge, such as a defrosting system failure, which could be due to a bad defrost timer, defrost thermostat (also called a defrost terminator), or the defrost heaters. Icemakers won’t make ice if the freezer temperature is above 17ºF (8ºC).
2. Check to see if the icemaker is receiving water in the first place. If it isn't, then there is an issue with the water inlet valve, which may have to be replaced.
3. If your model is a side-by-side, then check to see if the fill tube is frozen. (If frozen, it will prevent water entering the ice trays.) If it is, pull it out and pour hot water to melt the ice. Also, in this type model, if the red status LED is not lit on your ice level sensor receiver, then you may have bad optics circuits. Close the freezer door and wait five minutes, then open it back up. If still no status light, then you need to replace the optics boards, emitter and receiver.
Check these first and get back with results if you still haven't fixed it.

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.
First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.
