YES ... MOST PROBLEMS WITH ICE MAKERS THAT SUDDENLY STOP WORKING IS THE WATER SOLENOID STRAINER IS CLOGGED OR THE ORFICE INSIDE IS CLOGGD.(USUALLY LOCATED BEHIND THE FRIG. WHERE THE SMALL WATER LINE CONNECTS). THE STRAINER AND ORFICE IS USUALLY ON THE "INLET" SIDE OF THE VALVE.WITH BUCKET AND RAG NEAR-BY, TRACE THE SMALL WATER LINE AND LOOSEN EACH NUT TO SEE IF YOU HAVE WATER. SOME WATER SUPPLIES USE A SMALL "SADDLE VALVE" FOR TAPPING INTO A WATER LINE. THEY CAN CLOG TOO ... YOU CAN TEST TO SEE IF THE SOLENOID VALVE HAS POWER TO IT ... BY TAKING A METAL BUTTER KNIFE OR NAIL FILE AND HOLDING IT CLOSE TO THE TOP OF THE SOLENOID (coil) YOU SHOULD FEEL THE MAGNETIC PULL IF IT IS ENERGIZED. IF IT IS ENERGIZED AND YOU HAVE WATER ALL THE WAY INTO THE BACK OF THE FRIG ... THE PROBLEM LIES SOMEWHERE ELSE.

sounds like you have a problem with the fill tube at the Ice Maker. remove the IM and then the back wall ( evaporator cover ) , the fill tube is probably frozen. use a hair dyer to melt ice, be careful, the hair dyer can melt the fill tube and other plastic.

The ice maker on the kitchen aid refrigerator is not producing any ice.


Check the cut-off/ overflow bar, its the little rod that lifts up as the tray fills. It normally does not become stuck but has a catch n hold position when moved up to a certain point. This allows you to stop ice flow and water from filling the ice maker tray for maintenance, cleaning and keeps ice from building up and getting stale and bad tasting. If you have an in line water filter or cut-off valve, these may need to be replaced and checked to see if they are functioning. Check the water supply line that runs from a source to the refrigerator to be sure it is not clogged, kinked or compressed. The ice tray may also have to be pushed "back" into the slot so that a safety/shutoff latch is triggered which controls the water/power to the ice-maker unit. A good idea to unplug fridge/freezer when checking water line connections and be sure to know where your main water supply shut-off valve is, this small supply line will put a gallon of water on your floor in less than 3 min! Good luck.

Kitchen aid KSRG25FKSS05 water and ice maker have stopped working. I have tried numerous things. How should I fix this?


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does, leave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could be bad.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Ice maker not working


The activity with the water supply could have loosened some sediment in the line stopping up the little wire screen filter going into the water inlet valve. I would disconnect it and inspect the screen and flush the water line out before re connecting. Assuming you have water at the water dispenser Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

My kitchen aid refrigerator model KSB251NBL..NO ICE


Problem could be a couple of things.One There is a little control in the very back,its should be on the lower right side looking at the freg. from the back.It has a water line running up to the ice maker.If that is ok,you will need to replace the ice maker.It is not a big problem on either.Cost is for the little controll about $30.For the ice maker about &90.

Ice maker in Kitchen Aid stopped making ice


The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Kitchen Aid side by side model #kscs25inss00 The ice machine stopped working. I checked the solenoid valve for the ice machine and it works, as does the water dispeser in the door. The teeth in the ice...


First off is the water filter bad and or do you have one...if not and it is good...then you have pretty much diagnosed the problem correctly...as you said the old Ice maker gears turn and when they make a complete revolution they engage a trigger which signals the water solenoid to dispense water to the ice maker...another test is to fill the ice maker manually and see if it freezes (test the temp of the freezer...if it is not cold enough the ice maker will not work)...if ice is made (generally under 4 hours ) and it is not dumped...you need to replace the Ice maker...around $30 to $50depnding on brand and where you buy it...I shop Marcones Appliance parts the appliance repairman's friend...good quality cheap prices.

Good Luck I hope this helped...please rate me ...the Fang.

Kitchen Aid Ice maker Stopped working


I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.

All of there appliances are second rate. That is "The KitchenAid Difference"
