Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator

Ice Maker not working

The Ice maker on my KitchAid KSC25INSS00 stopped working. I have read other posts and understand it could be one of a few causes. 1)The motor module is bad? 2)Frozen water lines? How do I tell which one of these may be the culprit? I don't want to buy a new motor module and find out that is not the problem. Thanks

ALWAYS UN-PLUG ANY APPLIANCE BEFORE CHECKING ANY COMPONENT ... WAIT 15 MINUTES BEFORE PLUGGING BACK IN. FIRST THING TO DO IS ALWAYS CHECK THE WATER SUPPLY LINE FROM THE SUPPLY LINE VALVE (SADDLE VALVE 1/4" COPPER LINE IF USED) USUALLY BEHIND YOUR REFRIGERATOR OR YOU MAY HAVE TO TRACE THE SMALL COPPER-LINE BACK TO WHERE IT IS CONNECTED TO THE NAIN WATER SOURCE. TAKE A RAG AND BUCKET AND SLOWLY LOSEN THE BRASS OR NEOPREME NUT TO ENSURE YOU HAVE ADEQUATE WATER PRESSURE AND FLOW.... NO WATER? NO ICE !!! THEN YOU CAN CHECK THE WATER SOLENOID VALVE AND INTERNAL STRAINER & ORFICE LOCATED USUALLY ON THE BACK OF THE FRIG AND JUST INSIDE THE SUPPLY SIDE OF THE SOLENOID VALVE. MOST ALL WATER DISPENSER, AND ICE MACHINE PLOBLEMS ARE DUE TO SEDEMENT THAT CLOGGS THE SOLENOID ORFICE OR CAUSES IT NOT TO "SEAT" PROPERLY. IF YOU SEE YOU HAVE GOOD WATER FLOW ... TO THE INLET SIDE OF THE SOLENOID VALVE ... PLUG FRIG BACK-IN. GO TO WHERE THE ELECTRIC WATER SOLENOID IS LOCATED ... TAKE A BUTTER KNIFE OR A "METAL" NAIL FILE AND HOLD IT ABOUT A 1/4" FROM THE TOP OF THE SOLENOID ... IT SHOULD PULL THE METAL DEVICE YOU ARE HOLDING DOWN BY THE MAGNETIC FORCE THE SOLENOID CAUSES.... THIS TELLS YOU THE SOLENOID IS GOOD AND THAT YOUR PROBEM IS SOMETHING ELSE. I ALWAYS RECOMMEND CALLING A TRAINED LISCENSED "FACTORY CERTIFIED" APPLIANCE REPAIR COMPANY (CHECK THE BBB IN YOUR AREA). UNFORTUNATELY HUNDREDS OF CONSUMERS ARE BILKED BY THE FIX-IT-ALL HANDY MAN THAT COST CONSUMERS THOUSANDS YEARLY.

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.

Ice maker wont make the ice


a few things to check... 1st if you have a filter on this unit has it been changed regulary and when was the last time you changed it.. next make sure you are getting water to ice maker itself... is there frozen ice in tray ...if there is no water in unit then pull white cover on icemaker and check gear assembly does the white plastic gear look broke or anything... see if the gear turns to the right with hand freely it should not ... if this has a phillips screw in the middle of gear turn screw to the right it will be a little difficult turn it about half a turn and stop does the ice maker gear keep moving on its own this will advance the timer and should go through a cycle.. if your ice maker has a "t" and "h" terminal take a jumper wire small gauge will work jump these 2 terminals out and the gear will start to turn when you here a click pull the jumper out... watch it see if water ever enters ice maker and that teeth in ice maker actually rotate. these are a few things to start with you didnt post alot of info so hard to tell you where to start... could be a bad water valve,filter, the fill tube coming into ice maker make sure it is not frose up ,gear to ice maker head broke,heater on ice maker bad... hope this helps you start at it...good luck to you

No ice making


First i would check the water valve in the back. One side is for water.. the other side is for the ice maker... If you have a ohms meter check selonid for continuity look for blisters of plastic on sides showing in would be bad... You can also make a test cord to energise the valve by passing the icemaker to tell if valve is good. ALSO This would put water into you ice maker telling you.. you have a clear path for water to icemaker You only need to plug in for few seconds .. to keep from over filling icemaker if vavle good and water comes thu
