Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
Model is KitchenAid Superba, KSSS42QJB00.
Crushed ice worked fine until a few months ago. then it would work off and on and now it will not work at all. Cubed ice comes out when "crushed ice" button is pressed.
Your help is appreciated. thanks
I just repaird a unit with this same symptom. Yours may be the same. The plastic part that holds the switch was broken (pins). See the diagram at http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Whirlpool/KAZVHYR3.gif Item 15 is the part. The switch sets on a coupld pins and the pins break easily, thus the switch falls off and the dispensor lever can't operate it. If you look up inside with a flashlight you can see the switch, etc. and should be able to tell if it's held in place properly.

Since its an indoor ice maker its much harder to diagnose. However the motor is supposed to reverse for crushed/cubed so you can hold the freezer door switch and see if it does. If it doesnt reverse it could be the switch, or it could be a mechanical problem inside the blades (check for broken stationary blades)

not really a reset button but htere is a solenoid that controls the type of ice coming out of dispenser. with the ice bucket in place give a look at it from underneath and find the brass rod spanning from front to back of bucket. that rod hooks into a solenoid catch that when activated lifts the rod up and down for crushed/ or cubed ice.. after locating the "hole" in which the rod enters you should also see a corresponding plastic ring that would catch the rod upn activating stich and pull/up and down.. Ill assume that the "catch ring" is tuck in the up positon , might only be frozen up in which case you can hit it with a hair dryer to melt it, its also possible that the \solenoid had melted it self in the up position in which case you need to replace it.. to check this theory you can hook the brass rod into the ring assy in which case youll only dispense cubed no crushed

There is a rod on the back of the ice cube bin. It goes below a plastic slide in the back of the fridge. If yoiu pull the bin out and it does not engage right, you will be 'stuck' on crush. Pull the bin part way out and see whether the rod is going below or above the horizonal rung in the rear. If it is above, rotate the metal control until it will slip under the rung.
