The chute door is the reason your ice bin is freezing up and also the chute door being open draws warm moist air inside your freezer compartment causing massive amounts of frost and keeps the compressor runing all the time between defrost. You really n eed to get the chute door fixed. What is the correct model number? For the model KSRX25FT dispenser parts click HERE The chute door spring may be broken but you will not know untill you open the dispenser housing. I'm here should you post the correct model number or have questions, Sea Breeze

Kitchenaid KSRS25 Ice dispenser blades get stuck


Greetings,
In looking up this partial model # KSRS25, it shows you have
the model with the large ice bin inside the freezer.
My question to you is: Does the auger motor run when you
push the ice lever?
2 trouble prone parts on this model. Both in the case of NO
auger motor activation.
#1 broken pin that hold the micro-switch on to the switch bracket.
Item # 15

Next #2 and the Worst, A Broken Blue wire or wires in the wire loom
under the freezer door hinge. Un-repairable new door needed if still
available.. You have to get creative restoring the power.
So before I continue, Does the Auger motor Run?
And if it does, remove the bin and close the door switch that turns the
light off, and tape switch shut. With door open and ice cradle pushed
in watch the auger drive fork turn? Is the the key hole stripped in the
fork.(rounded out) May need the fork or motor. #9 & #2

Dispenses crushed ice only, not cubed


remove the dispenser bucket where the ice drops into inside the freezer and get a Tupper ware bowl,remove the bucket and dump this ice into the bowl,then rinse with the dispenser bucket with warm tap water to melt any ice on each end of this ice maker,then wipe dry and replace into freezer where you removed it to get cold again and leave empty till the next harvest of ice,this can be normal on some units after so many weeks,as it will not let the blades retract so as just to dispense only cubes,once bucket is cleaned of ice jams the solenoid and blades will again retract for cubes only

Ice maker stopped dispensing


Refrigerator - Icemaker Not Dispensing,or Not Making Ice Check that the feeler arm on the icemaker is in the down position and is not blocked. If the icemaker does not have a feeler arm make sure the icemaker paddle is not blocked under the icemaker. For more information on the causes of new icemakers not making ice. For more information on normal ice production. Side by Side models: The filter may be loaded with sediment that can cause low water pressure. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi. Pressures below 40 psi may cause a malfunction of the icemaker (i.e. producing hollow cubes or no ice production). Test the water pressure: Dispense water from the dispenser into a large measuring cup for 20 seconds. If the measuring cup contains less than 13.5 ounces (400 metric centimeters), the water flow is inadequate. If the amount of water is less than 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator fails the test, remove the filter and test the refrigerator again with the by-pass plug in place. If the refrigerator dispenses the proper amount of water with the by-pass plug in place, then the filter should be replaced. If you no longer have the by-pass plug and it has been over three months since the filter has been replaced, you should replace the filter. If the refrigerator fails the test again and you know you have the proper water pressure in your home, you should call service to check the refrigerator. If the amount of water collected is over 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator passes the test and the dispenser is working correctly. Ice not Dispensing Due To Clumping Ice: Your dispenser may not be dispensing due to clumping ice cubes. The ice cubes in your icemaker may be clumping for a couple of reasons: Low food load: The defrost cycle radiates heat into the freezer. The ice in the freezer will naturally absorb the heat. This will cause the ice to melt slightly during defrost, then eventually freeze together in clumps. Increasing the food load in the freezer will buffer the warmth from the defrost cycle and keeps the ice from melting. Lack of use: When the ice bin is full, the pressure from the weight of the cubes can cause the bottom cubes to fuse and clump. To prevent this from happening, discard the clumped ice and check the bin periodically to ensure the ice is not building up. If you do not use a large amount of ice, move the feeler arm on the icemaker to the up position to turn off the icemaker and stop ice production. For more information on the causes of clumping cubes. If the ice bucket is not seated correctly, ice will not dispense properly. Make sure the ice bucket is in the correct position. Refer to Use & Care manual.

Freezer won't reached desired temp or make ice


Most definately you do. somehow air got in while you were away. 12 hour defrost with doors open will help.(insulation in side by side normally thick).Had one like that approx. 2 months ago but fridge was not well treated and they damaged rubber seal at water and ice dispencer area.

Freezer leaks water even with ice maker water turned off


The only water that can come out of the freezer if the water is turned off is defrosted ice that cannot go to the tray at the bottom of the machine since the drain hole is blocked. See if any water is in the tray under the machine. Probably dry as a bone. If so carefully remove the back panel in the freezer, after you have defrosted some of the ice buildup. If you find lots of Ice the defrost circuit isn't working. If you find frosty ice the circuit may be OK but the drain blocked. You MUST melt ALL ice on the coils, and in the drain pan below the coils. Use a turkey baster to shoot hot water into the drain hole until it is free of ice and water flows freely into pan below. Find the defrost thermostat and turn it manually with a screwdriver and see if the defrost heater gets hot (be careful, gets very hot) timer should turn very slowly when powered. If not hot but timer turns on its own the defrost thermostat is probably defective.

WATER DISPENSER JUST DRIPS.MAKES VERY LITTLE ICE AND WHEN IT DOES IT IS MELTED INTO A SHEET OF ICE .IT NOW NEEDS FILTER CHANGR, BUT THIS PROBLEM BEGAN ABOUT 1 MONTH AFTER PURCHASE


Probably the solenoid is leaking(electronic water valve located in the back of the fridge that opens when ice maker calls for water) and the water freezes up inside the filling tube to the ice maker and when the solenoid opens water doesn't go through.

Side by Side Refrigerator Always dispenses crushed ice regardless of setting


I know it will be a pain but take it apart again and lube the metal shaft in the solenoid and the plastic slide with petrolium jelly, that should keep it from freezing up. It's what we do...
