Most icemakers have a thermal fuse on the black wire feeding them. If this fuse overheats then it will blow to protect your fridge. Check for continuity through the fuse.

(Note that the fuse itself can not be changed. The whole wiring harness has to be changed.)

That is a Whirlpool module type ice maker that seems to have has been so strict with their information I will need to give the manual's another way about a 5 year life span. I have some manuals but because Whirlpool stopped letting people post what they believe is their property. I guess I need to only understand but if I place them here I will lose my subscription. Click Here=> My E-Mail and I will send it to you. May have to fill out the capsha first. Below is what I am talking about as far as how they work and yes I have the schematics and tech sheets, I will look to hear from you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice Marker Problem


On most Amana models the light switch for the freezer is in the same circuit as the ice maker. Check to see if your light turns on and off by pressing the switch. Now the ice maker will only cycle when the bimetal in the ice maker is cold enough. You can start it thru a cycle by jumping the the bimetal with a wire. You do that by inserting each end of the wire in to two small holes on the bottom right hand side of the module. Will need to remove the white plastic cover on the icemaker to get to it. Hold the light switch closed and it should cycle if it has power and the switch is ok. When you let off of the switch the cycle will stop. Be sure to remove the wire about 10 sec. after the cycle has started. Then watch for water fill. If no water fill then there is another problem. Let me know how this turns out and we can take other steps if necessary.

I have a KitchenAid SxS model # KSRG25FTST01 with an icemaker problem. It stopped making ice, but the water still dispenses. It makes no noise and no water in the ice tray. I never hear it try to fill with...


If the thermostat behind the left side of the fill tray goes bad, the cycle will stop completely. Cost of thermostat is $20.00. Cost of new icemaker with new motor and everything including thermostat is $45.00, brand new, on EBay plus shipping. Cost for new icemaker from repair shop, $153.00 plus tax. Control board circuit panels each side of freezer compartment will go bad also stopping the ice maker cycle. these control boards come in pairs, one for each side of freezer compartment. Cost for new circuit panel control board from repair shop, $215.00. Cost from EBay brand new circuit control board $45.00 plus $8.00 shipping. Easy to install both, icemaker and control board circuit panels. Phillips screw driver and small socket set is all you need for removing and installing these items.

Water dispenser doesn't work


I have the same problem with a 2002 model. Icemaker working but no ice or water comes out the door dispenser. Also the light in the door is not working (i.e. no electricity getting to the door.)

Just had a service call. They told me that the whole door needs to be replaced because the wires that power the door are broken from normal opening and closing of the door. $1500 repair!!!!!!!

(KitchenAid did a POOR design with this frig. Open your freezer door and look toward the floor. On the left side, you will see a rope-like thing coming from the freezer to the door. Everytime this door gets open and closed, it crimps the wires... and thus, eventually they break.) The newer models have concealed wiring.

Two of my neighbors had the same problem with this frig a few years ago and KitchenAid replaced the door at no charge. I just spoke with KitchenAid. At first they told me that I was out of warranty. When I told them this is an obvious design flaw, they told me they would give me the new door since I have 3 other registered KitchenAid products. I have to pay for the repair service, which will be about $200 plus the $75 service call I had today. Better than buying a new frig.. but still frustrating because of the design flaw.

Kitchenaid Icemaker does nothing. Ref. Mod.kscs25Inssoo


This also happened after I changed the water filter. The small black rubber tube that fills the tray was plugged with ice. Instead of hot wash cloths I used a hair drier for a couple of minutes.

I had two (2) broken wires in the harness. I don't think you actually have to take the door off. It may be a little cramped working, but I think it can be done. Once you take off the bottom grill, find the end of the harness next to the water filter and unplug the white plug. Just below that is a ground wire. Remove the screw and take the green wire off. Then, next to that is a white "c-clip" holding the harness against the bottom of the refrigerator. Remove that clamp and you should have enough "play" to work on the harness. (It is probably a pain in the #*@ to remove the entire harness because it runs into a hole in the bottom of the door and then up through the door itself) You'll have to cut away the black mesh sleeve over the harness. I cut it with a pair of wire cutters as close to where the harness goes into the door as possible. There may also be a bit of black electrical tape at the end of the mesh closest to the white plug. Remove that, and you should be able to slide the mesh sleeve off, over the plug. This should reveal the broken wires. I just took some 12 gauge braided wire and cut a couple of pieces

Frozen ejector arm


sounds more like the heater in the ice maker is bad. The cycles of the ice maker are: 1. water comes in to fill ice maker. 2. water freezes in ice maker making. 3. heater comes on to help ice release. 4. motor comes on to eject the ice and start all over again. if the heater doesn't come on the ice will not eject. replacing the icemaker is typically what needs to be done in this case.
