Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
How do i correct this?
Water flow is governed by a solenoid valve
which is controlled by a timer that sets the cycle for all of the icemaker
functions. The timer is controlled in turn by the switch that is actuated when
the bin is full. One of these three is malfunctioning and to determine which is
at fault will require the removal of the icemaker mechanism (to check the
switch) and possibly sheet metal on the back of the fridge.
You will also need a multimeter of some kind to check for switch operation and continuity of the solenoid coil. Adequate instruments can cost as little as $3 and in any case under $20, have digital displays and are normally accompanied by some instructions in Chinglish which are sometimes pretty entertaining.

SOURCE: Not making ice
The oil from the compressor has pumped up to the top part because of it only the ice maker s not workind change the lead valve of the compressor which can rectify your problem

You did remember to turn it back on? Mine has a handle that detects when the tray is full and you flip it up to turn it off and down to turn it on. Good Luck

SOURCE: Ice maker stopped working
if you will remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker take a look at the drive gear. see if the 2 center pins are still present this is a common problem one of the pins will break off causing the gear to pull loose and loose electrical contact for the icemaker motor. replacing the motor module partnumber 8201515 will fix your icemaker thanks for using FixYa Peyton

Tip: Most self-defrosting household refrigerators that loose part or all of their cooling in the freezer or fridge are having problems with the self-defrost system. Three components to check: defrost timer; defrost heater elements (esp. on side x side units); and evaporator fan. All cold air is normally produced in the freezer, then circulated via evaporator fan to the refrigerator section. About every 12 hrs. a defrost timer turns off the compressor, and turns on the defrost elements to melt the frost from the evaporator coils. This normally takes about 20 minutes to complete, then the timer turns off the heaters, and restores normal cooling operations. If the cycle does not complete properly, the coils will "ice up", restricting proper air circulation through the freezer and refrigerator sections. Worse yet is if timer sticks in defrost mode (rare), it will turn the freezer into an oven. If the defrost system seems to be working normally, then you should check the condensing coils for excess dirt, and vacuum &/or bush the dirt and lint out to restore proper head disipation. It's recommended that you vacuum out a condensor that's located on the bottom of the unit once a year. You should also check the condensor fan (if present) for proper operation. If the condensor fan fails, heat can not be properly released from the condensor, and will cause the refrigerator to 'run all the time' yet not cool efficiently. There are many things to check on modern frost-free refrigerators, before turning to the actual sealed refrigeration system and compressor unit.
